winter solstice

Greetings Thrive Tribe.

And so the new Solar Year comes this month for the water based feminine hemisphere in the south – the Sun standing still and then returning as the days become longer. This solar year reality is the acknowledgement of the natural rhythms and cycles of life and is the natural reality upon which all the patriarchal myths of the dead king risen after three days emerged from.

We have many celebrations lined up for the magical night of the 22nd – the largest moon of the year will be present that night – pulling at us for change and renewal and the mid winter gathering is going to be great fun with wonderful juju to be gained for all.
Well what a crazy ride we are on. The eclipse season has been really quite harrowing for many people and the incidence of break up, break down, spin out, shuffle off, illness and madness has been quite phenomenal!!

I am not aware of anyone getting through quite unscathed and the interesting thing is that this is just ramping up further and further through the grand water trines and other things over the next few months – right up to the mid point direct hit [no 4] of the Uranus/Pluto square and the solar eclipse in November – which I think will be the truly mad month of this year lol. More in Cosmic Connections below.

aus election

The electioneering has hit full stream here in Aus. I cannot believe the lies and the shutting down that abbot’s spin team is doing with him. They are pretending he is an ok guy, he says nothing to anyone and rarely seen on the ABC where they attempt at least to ask real questions. He is dropping clues though – this talk of an ‘emergency’ budget situation – a recipe for change as soon as he gets in and the ‘independent audit’ that he holds after he is elected [very arrogant in his confidence] will of course provide the means to slash and burn further than promised.

He will crucify the unions and I get people don’t have a lot to do with unions now – but never forget they are the reason children do not work down the mines here [as they still do in multi-national mines in third world countries] – they are the reason you get a decent wage for a decent labour [sort of] where as in Africa 54 miners were shot dead by the police for daring to ask for a pay rise of an extra $1 a day on top of the $2 a day they already work for.

hear, see, speak not evil

Remember the police force was created originally to protect the possessions and property of the elite and emerging middle class from the peasants – it still works in the same way really.
These are the lackeys of the system as are all mini empires and do not have the people’s best wishes at heart.

Unions are the reason you live as well as you do and the conservatives know it and they have always wanted to tear it down. All superannuation was created by the work of the unions. Only a labour government has increased it – despite the conservatives having many opportunities.

aus unions

Universal health care came in under labour and was butchered by the conservatives. They will butcher the NBN and give you a crap internet system [they will have the best for themselves of course] because that is how they roll.
The only reason they accepted the NDIS for half a million disabled people and their families is because the loss of face would have been too great just prior to an election – but they did nothing about it in all the years they had a chance to.
That little toad Costello as treasurer took 50 billion dollars and put it in a scheme to pay commonwealth public servants extravagant super schemes – all of it – no billions put aside to help the rest of us or any other infrastructure.

abbott and rinehart

Abbots good friend Rinehart banging on about how the mining industry is not the country’s ATM – the arrogant greed of the woman – as though through an accident of birth it all belongs to her and her alone – being the worlds richest woman is not enough – she will influence the abbott agenda, as will pell and all kinds of other dark creatures.

Creatures who believe they were born to rule, that they ‘know’ best and who have demonstrated again and again their willingness to screw the little man, to steal as much as they can get away with, to pour billions of dollars into wealthy schools where they send their children while allowing the rest to fall behind. He will abolish the gonsky reforms – make no doubt about it.

I think soon enough the education system as we know it will come to a screaming halt anyway – already they are failing the new kids quite profoundly for they simply will not be taught irrelevant nonsense that makes no sense.

It appears as if the world is limping along however it really is like a tipping point being reached and like the glancing blow of Uranus and Pluto back in 1965 – it took four years before it exploded all over the world. This round is seven direct hits and same thing – it will really explode in a couple of years – if it limps along that far – and then we shall rewrite the rule books for living.

I genuinely find it hard to understand that people cannot remember what the conservatives did with health, the morning after pill, the appalling work choices legislation. This is ideological folks. One of the very first things howard did when he came to office was to abolish a scholarship for 2 aboriginal kids per annum to get an opportunity to attend university. A lousy pittance – and he got rid of it because these cretinous people are born into a place of wealth and secturity and by all means they will keep it. They do not like the ‘riff raff’ rising above their station.

Very disturbing. They will do it again – please think about your vote. Although I have never been inspired by the voting mentality of this country – that negative fear based reality the conservatives cling to and beat you over the head with. Filth – all of it. Remember – all decent social policy has been initiated in this country by the labour party – yes they have their problems – as do the others – what kind of a country do you want in the long run is all.

parenting - why this course matters

The First webinar series on Conscious Parenting completed last month with another due to kick off on the 10th! It went really well and it was such a reminder that if we get it right with kids we really will change the world – especially these new kids coming in. And good feedback again from some of the families that they found it was helping their adult relationships as much as the relationship they have with their child!!

So if you have any kind of a relationship with a child, a niece or nephew, a grandchild or you are a day care worker or teacher etc – for only $25 a week you can learn how to do it entirely differently, healing your own childhood wounds along the way [yes we all have them lol] and all from the comfort of your own home!! Come and play – you will learn a great deal about how you ended up they way you are and some wonderful simple skills to rewrite that!! http://wp.me/p2FxkF-55

After my vision late last year of women rising all over the world and saying NO – in a way that will not be able to be resisted – there is a lot of information coming in now as to what this will look like.

It is becoming sooooooo apparent that what is rising is the power of the feminine in both women and men.
It is quite disturbing to some people – both to those to whom it is happening and those who are the friends and family of those to whom it is happening.
What I see in people is a new kind of truth and an increasing inability to tolerate the old ways of playing dormouse or what ever else has been needed to be, in order to stay safe.
There is a strange kind of detachment that goes with this – in other words it does not matter what other people think about it [and they are thinking some very dark things I can assure you lol] this is who I am and take it or leave it – that is just how it is now.

There is also a weird kind of body awareness that is coming with this as well, a new level of sensitivity to the environment, a new awareness of sensuality and emotional reality, and an awareness of oceans of grief and spiritual rage at what has been done to women for countless thousands of generations. It is very powerful and is motivating women to move in different ways.

DSCF7230

The Eve-Olution – a Women’s Initiation – to be held this year from 18th to 20th of October – will focus very powerfully on this.
Even though the journey will, as always be into the deep aspects of self for awakening and restoration – we will be working powerfully this year to awaken this new aspect of the feminine rising and accessing the gifts she brings – so we may return them to the world where they belong.

For an age now the emphasis has been on power and subjugation of nature rather than having a relationship with it and the return of the Sacred Feminine – with all of its mysteries – is now returning to consciousness.

The power and numinosity of the Divine Feminine is emerging to provide a new vision for the new future – wholeness and balance are what is on offer and a movement away from the concept of a human born flawed and sinful, separate from divine consciousness to a recognition that we are the divine in human form – with all grace and radiance imbued in that.

goddess and serpent

Remember that the serpent, snake or dragon – long symbols of the primal feminine – is the traditional guardian of the ‘treasure’ – the mysteries of the ‘all knowing’.
The journey of the serpent goddess – the Kundalini – from the base of the spine to the radiant expansion at the crown – symbolizes powerfully the transformation of the life energy from unconsciousness to the connection with the divine essence that illuminates all.

It is the restoration of the feminine within, that we look to in this new aquarian age with hope and longing as the symbols of the last masculine age crumble and fall around us. The difference is profound for in the old world there is a god head that rules the world with commandments and eternal cruelty and damnation for failing whereas in the new world the Goddess and the divine feminine does not rule the world – She is the world!!

And so at the Eve-Olution – a Women’s Initiation this year – we seek to recognize the goddess in all – as the salvation of what we have sunk to. In this reality the divine feminine is nature and fertility – responsible for both the creation and destruction of life.

She who is immanent in nature – acknowledging the sacredness of all living things and in which the model that acknowledges the wheel of her turning – from birth, life, death, transformation and rebirth – can truly be seen as an acknowledgement of its ecology – a flourishing for all things within nature.

At this weekend we invoke the Goddess of the divine feminine and to do this is to awaken the Goddess within – to truly become that which we invoke – for the healing of all, the awakening of the feeling mind and thinking heart, the merging of spirit with the soul within and the raising of the planetary consciousness!

To become “the Woman cloaked with the Sun, with the Moon under her feet and the crown of 12 stars on her head”…as spoken of in revelation.

With this return of the power of the feminine so shall we see many things returned to the natural reflection in nature – the natural time of the cycles of the seasonal 13 moon calendar as apposed to the 12 month erratic Gregorian calendar based on time equals money.

from a seed we all grow

This is the period of incubation, of the seed murmuring under the soil and at this years Women’s weekend we shall bring it forth into life!

There is an early bird registration for this event in the Coming Up section below and if you book before July 31st you will get this life changing weekend along with all the prep beforehand – for only $450. So do come and play – discover yourself – and awaken to the new energies unfolding for you and the planet.

solstice man

And the Mid Winter gathering for Initiated women is full now but one or two may drop out so if you are keen get in touch with me or register at the link and you may still work it.

I am so excited about this one – we walked the land over the weekend and the ritual just kept unfolding in front of us – this will be a very special time of release, renewal, celebration and feasting and creativity of things for your home and healing of the energetic systems of the body – yes a lot and we are all up for it lol.

 

 

jolie

One of the most disturbing things I saw recently was one of the celebrity worshipped [oh when will we start to respect thinkers again!!!!] who decided on medical and pharma advice – to cut off two perfectly healthy breasts because of what might happen!! This completely terrified [or downright mental] creature – not only thought it was a good idea to do this – but to get up on international media – and terrify a lot of other sleepwalkers that this was a good idea!!!

Dear Goddess people – the lunatics are really running the asylum!!!

The world is changing big time my loves and it is all for the better despite the chaos – so hang in there – get in touch with your feelings and your thoughts and your body and eliminate the crap – and most of it is crap – and trust that you are a perfect note in a symphony of change that would not be the same without your note.

Your only task in this life is to discover the real truth of yourself – hidden but not depleted – and to let it rise and shine and to speak the truth of this – for each time you dare to speak the truth of yourself you show another human being that you can do this and not die and there is no greater gift that you can give to your fellow humans at this time!!!

Be yourselves – trust that you are here for a reason whether you understand it or not or remember it or not – and trust that the symphony would not be the same without your precious note. There are billions of entities that are lined up to come to this planet at this time of it’s history for the transformation of the species – many did not and will not make it – you did! Trust that and become yourselves – it is ultimately what you are here for and you cannot get it wrong.

sag moon may 2013

This eclipse is a particularly powerful one simply because it is the third in a row and because of what is lining up and rolling with it.

This is the last in a long line of Sagittarius/ Gemini eclipses [for 8 years anyway] and will impact most over north and south America, Europe and west Africa.

uranus pluto square

What makes this one particularly potent is the first of the exact Pluto-Uranus squares for this year hits on the 20th – just a few days before the eclipse and while all keep banging on about the power of this for transformation – it is stressed again and again – that is what it is doing!!

This whole week leading up to the eclipse is going to be very rocky and a lot of people I know are dealing with major illness, shocking respiratory issues [lungs=grief] and a general shaking up of their lives.

sweat lodge 3

On the actual day of the eclipse – the 25th – we will be holding a sweat for both men and women to embrace these energies for change and release, to work with it rather than hide in fear from it – for there are several factors at play here that would likely have us skive off and go to lala land lol!!

The Full Moon will be in Sagittarius and the Sun is in Gemini lining up to form a rather unpleasant T-Square with Neptune in Pisces – a powerful invitation to look to mind altering substances to pretend that all is well in our world.

The likelihood of overindulging this week and weekend in particular is actually very high so do yourself a favour and don’t – and avoid the roads, clubs and other places where you are likely to encounter a whole heap of people who are!!

And they will be over the top! Bogan behavior, drunken violence, gross acts of stupidity are all very likely here – be warned, be flexible and aware.

uranus-neptune-pluto

It is important to remember that the outer three planets involved in this – Uranus, Neptune and Pluto – really are the initiators of spiritual transformation.

That is what they do.

They regularly trigger the blueprint within us for evolution, they initiate the expansionist push from within that would have us rise up all that contracts, hardens, contains and constricts us.

All the social order rules put in place by greedy and corrupt men [yes it is predominately men that do this] to keep us from becoming ourselves because we are too distracted by the economic slavery they have created for us – they don’t use metal chains any more but the slavery is just as real!

transformation may 2013

These gifts of the cosmos steer us more powerfully onto a clearer more radical path of fulfillment.

Uranus summons us to rise above the petty mundane dramas of our existences and dwell in the higher mind.

Neptune calls us beyond the dramas of eros, the similacre of romantic love, towards Agape – the love and compassion for all and Pluto leads us to move beyond the need to control and manipulate others to the force of the higher Will – the Will to Being.

Each time they come around in this way they bring transformation to financial, technological and political structures – there is much information out there about that – this is not the place to rehash it – it is what happens however.

This eclipse brings all these elements in to play and will allow you to witness something playing out in your life in which the perceptions you have of how it all ‘works’ is actually getting in the way of you seeing your “Truth”.

What you ‘think’ you know is actually detracting from what you actually ‘know’ and this blind spot may cause a lot of grief for you – better to be open and curious about any situation playing out in which you feel ‘correct’ or ‘righteous’ and seek and allow the shadow to emerge here for you to embrace and integrate!

You will be much better off if you can do this.

Then act – change what needs to be changed to move forward in love.

There has been so much upheaval in our personal lives during this eclipse season. Huge impacts on health, relationships, work, security etc.

Many things are ending and many things are beginning. If something is not right in your life at the moment – if something is feeling out of alignment with who you are becoming – that is because it is true!!

This last lunar eclipse is designed for you to be guided by your higher mind, love and will – towards your higher purpose.

no more conforming

It is designed for you to see the blind spot and barrier to what holds you back from taking the next step and it will be brutal with you if you do not give yourself permission to go with the flow and embrace the change.

You may be holding on out of fear and the thought of loss of security, however you know it is slowing killing you or your spirit.

The changes needed may bring about complete chaos in your life and so is fearful in contemplation to move forward. Things can change within a situation however that requires commitment by all parties for such a re-birthing to occur.

Ask yourself the simple question – does this situation make my heart sing to be a part of it? If the answer to that is no – there is your answer and the longer you stay in a situation that has passed its use by date the more ground down and slow you will become.

sound of spirit

Straight up. If you dare to change the universe will support you in this – synchronicity will abound – you will be guided. Trust. Take that leap of faith in yourself!!

Everything is accelerating – yes you too.

The world is going to get very rocky over the next few years.

It looks as though everything is still limping along, however blow by blow the foundational pillars of this old world are being chopped out at the base, the system has started to slide, however it is so slow most are not seeing it – but it is gathering momentum and when it reaches the tipping point it will all come down with a crash – that is ok – it is time.

As this old world crumbles – it is up to us – each and every one of us – to reach in and awaken the part of us that knows what to do here, that knows there is nothing to fear – for we are the world we seek and we are the agents of change we desire.

No one is coming to save us – we are saving ourselves and our species by daring to be the change we want.

As we each clean out willingly the old and outmoded ways of relating, consuming and communing so does the freight train of change gather momentum.

The energies of this moon are working with us to move us towards an unfolding of self realization that allows for personal freedom along with responsibility for the collective all.

The ever expanding liberation of the soul that challenges the status quo and powerfully says “No” cannot be stopped.

Protect your sacred space within, be true to yourself and recognize that everyone is fighting the same hard battle – so compassion for all as you change now.

medicine wheel

In the sweat we shall journey around the medicine wheel to the East, to discover the blind spot that keeps us held, we shall journey to the North for the strength to face it, own it and let it go and to the West for the healing of all that has been done to lock us down and then to the South, for the guidance of our ancestors and medicine for the days ahead.

Join us – on Saturday the 25th of May at 9am for a journey of discovery and renewal – followed by a self divination at the end – to help you further understand what needs to change most powerfully now!

solstice tree winter

The age of the Feminine is here – it is time to claim our heritage ladies !!!

There is a wild Mid – Winter Gathering to claim these energies for change.

On this overnight stay we shall draw on the Energies of the Divine Feminine to immerse ourselves deeply in the water element for transformation and renewal of the engine room of our creativity – our emotions. We shall draw upon the power of the earth element to renew the flesh. We shall draw upon the fire element to invigorate our spirit and soul and we shall draw upon the air to empty the mind!

This beautiful energy can be deeply inspirational or deeply escapist – the choice, as always, will be yours.

solstice man

On this most magical of evenings we shall gather at a location in the Adelaide Hills for a mutual garnering of energies for the beginning of the New Year as the Sun promises return after the shortest day! Solstice – we shall honour the passing of the old year and honour the promise of life renewed by the coming spring.

They day will begin early with a Sweat on the Saturday the 21st at 9am for those who wish to attend at the usual site and this will be recommended as a wonderful way to tune in.

fire dance

And then we shall gather down on the penisula to awaken the divination wheel, to honour what is being released from our personal lives, to ascend the path to the cauldron of fire, to let go, to sing the old songs as we dance and weave a new fate, then honouring the new with a feast and libation of merriment, laughter and play.

And before we leave – an exchange of trust and life renewed before we return to the world.

The energies are powerful and we shall dance upon them as we weave a new fate, a new world.

The planetary energies continue to support change and letting go at this time so come and dance the dance of life ladies.

If you are aware and watching and working with the transformational energies – none of this is surprising to you and you will navigate through this as with all things – observing and working for a better world.

we are writing the new myths, creating the new rituals, weaving the new songs and story lines for a new shared future.

The sweeping changes will get stronger and more violent for some people as they continue to resist the changes that are required.

What this essentially means is that any story you are holding onto to deny your need to grow and evolve – what ever it is – is very likely to be the one thing in your face that requires you to change now.

Cosmic_Egg

the Cosmic egg is cracking from the inside out folks and that which is broken from the inside begets new life!!!

there are many categories of challenge to this awakening – the hungry ghosts of our past, the demons of our own creation in the battlefield of our physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual bodies. there are dark and destructive forces who tempt us with what appears beautiful and escapist but lead us down a dark path – strangling and suffocating all our promise. the void does not exist and yet the world depends upon it lol.

It may well appear that all is well for these energies can lead to growth and expansion – however this will be temporary and not even available to all and the walls are still cracking, the early warning seismic shifts are still mounting, even though the institutions appear to be going about their business with nothing changing – nothing could be farther from the truth.

dissolving duality

Water is cleansing and sweeps all before it and it seeks the deepest place to gather – water upon water – feminine energy – creating the void – that which appears barren and empty however is the fruitful magnetic darkness from which all creation flows – offering regeneration and renewal once the storm has passed.

This event can bring very deeply suppressed emotions to the surface, feelings of anxiety, not being good enough, lost love and longing for poor choices, guilt and shame re negative behavior that will allow you to finally face and be accountable for your actions, your defensiveness and reactionary tendencies will be brought home now.

During such times is when we want to crawl back into the hole, the familiarity of old patterns and beliefs that allow us to play victim and wait for the savior to come and save us – well that’s not going to happen lol.  Do not fall for this – it will make the next hit even more painful.

There is no going back – not ever again – the door is closed to that reality and new doorways in new dimensions are opening up all over the place and some of this is so strange and unfamiliar, again you are tempted to crawl back into the hole – but no.

goddess blessing

It is time to leave our comfort zones and grow. Just be present. Don’t Judge anything. Just experience and ask, what do I need to know from this, to grow – what ever the hell it is, that is flooding down, lol.

For the new doorway you stand before will open to new possibilities and on the retreat we shall draw on the moon, the solstice, the Goddess and all things that love and support us on every level of our being to rise up, release and renew – to husk the corn of all that is dead and to plant the new seeds deep into our soul and psyche for rebirth and regeneration!!

This will be different for all of us for we all walk a different path and we all have had different experiences to get here to this point – however by being willing to walk in our own shadow and to confront the delusions and illusions we hold then so shall we find the mystery that is our own personal journey while recognizing we are part of the collective as well.

when women wake - mountains move

Because these energies involve emotion, intuition, soul and spirit, the divine feminine and the unseen realms and because they call us to action, to leadership and right action – there is so much here to be gained for the journey ahead.

If we do this well we shall soak up the blessings and immediately put them to good use [which is also required with the rest of the year’s energies]. We shall form new dreams, renewed hope and feel the love of the cosmic grace that is sweeping us all at this time.

Every sound in every cell of our bodies is singing in profound harmony for the miracle of changes rising up within us now. We are being showered with multiple blessings and opportunities to create a new symphony of being and so the possibilities here are limitless to sow the seeds for a profound new future. On the retreat we shall indeed sow such seeds and honour our transition.

For all who have worked diligently, put their growth ahead of the mundane, refused to sell their soul to gain the material world, who have placed their inner voice above their public mask – you are now coming to reap the rewards of such endeavours.

feminine soul arising

So on the midwinter retreat we shall set the tone for the time ahead, we shall awaken the cosmic wheel, we shall speak of the change to the horned god, we shall release the old and welcome the new, we shall dance around the cauldron and fire as we weave what we seek, we shall feast and have merriment, play and have fun – and as we leave the next day after further immersion – we are clear – we are firmly on our path of love and laughter, light and allowance.

We shall rise above and set ourselves free, we shall unchain ourselves from the egoic desire to rule, we shall release ourselves from the longing for the light and embrace both aspects of the duality within us – we shall become the vessel that holds the light and rise accordingly into our true natures.

That in truth all the sparks of the divine need to do is dream of a better world and plant those seeds and trust it will unfold.

tree of life

That you can recognize the roots of the tree of which we are all a part, that the roots join to form a tree of life in which we can love and create a better world by dreaming new branches of possibility for each other!!

For this is how the universe forms and continues to form, because you are spirit and spirit grows and continues without end – it is the essence of it all – the power within your divine imagination, dreams, grace and hope – the Power of becoming – the Power to Be Yourself!!!

So if you have been through the profound changes of initiation, if you wish to continue stepping forward into life for the planet and your self and your tribe, if you wish to renew yourself again and prepare for the changes ahead – then follow the link and register. Soon you will all be sent an email outlining what to bring, where to bring it to, information on how to prepare and the cost involved.

This indeed shall be a gathering of the wild women in all of us – to celebrate, to dance, to sing and to howl at the moon should the mood take us, to sit by the fire and drink and feast and to dream in the warm blankets of the circle of women divine!!

Follow this link to register or visit us at the website – notices for prep coming out soon xx

yggdrasil and runes

This is a time of new beginnings, the creative seed, to plant deeply the new roots for change that this moon offers!

This moon is very powerful and we will be holding a sweat to utilize the energies and maximize the potential for change and forward movement that is offered.

sweat lodge 3

There will be a 9am sweat on Saturday morning the 11th to journey around the medicine wheel, to see what has risen to the surface for release and most importantly on this moon, to plant the seeds for a new way of being in the future.

The alignments are powerful and there is a continuing dredging up of ancient wounds in this – however here we are also sowing the seeds for the new possibilities of being that are on offer here as well!

So in this beautiful ceremony we shall seek the vision, the release of old binds, the healing of the schism between the body and the soul so that we may walk forward in a new way – powerfully informed by the depth and larger reality of all that we are!!

Taurus moon

In this sweat we shall journey around the medicine wheel using sound and chanting to embrace the energies of this eclipsed new moon in Taurus!

The moon wobble building up to this also adds a lot of emotional intensity to this and it is important to allow ourselves to experience the emotion to release it but to not use it to escape into fantasy and seek reasons that do not exist for why we feel this way.

Many of these feelings are being dredged up from god knows where at the moment and there is no searching of your current life that will find the source of this – however if you seek long enough you will find something sure enough and go off on another tangent that is not real.

The earth grounding of Taurus can help you here to stay grounded – go within and process this energy and then look for new and fertile ground to grow yourself free of such things.

Venus in Gemini a couple of days before allows us to be more realistic and open in our communications of what matters – and who matters to us and this will help us speak our truth.

pluto uranus square

The challenges are real during this solar eclipse and are being fed powerfully by the explosive forces of the Uranus – Pluto direct hit of the square a week later. This is a time of volatility and profound change and shall stir up much for examination and release – however all the energy in Taurus will resist this so the tension will be high and explosive.

Much that is unexpected and shocking can arise here but with Saturn in the mix – if we can by pass the drama and go within, then the possibility of discovering real future possibilities is high!

sisters of fate

To assist stabilize the chaos and seek glimmers into the future we shall Journey with Odin to the tree of Yggdrasil at the centre of all things, we shall rise with him for clearing and then we shall encounter the three sisters of fate – the Norns – Urd, Skald and Verdandi – mistresses of past, present and future – who weave at the loom at the base of the tree.

runes

And at the end of the journey we shall draw upon the song of the gods that was given to Odin after his ordeal – the Runes – and see what the fate weavers have in store for us to help us maximize putting down the roots for the new world we wish to create!!

As winter approaches the veil is thin and so we shall draw upon our ancestors also for guidance and strength for the days ahead.

I am really enjoying the ability to have these sweats in the morning of late and will continue to do so during the winter where practical and where it fits in with the moon!

yggdrasil

The sweat lodge encompasses both beginnings and endings.

Each time we take part in a ceremony, we take a journey to the centre of our being, joined with the others in the sweat lodge and yet also alone. It is about birth, death and rebirth. We change as a result of participating.

Great richness flows from maintaining this focus. We chant to help us concentrate on the journey and not the uncomfortable physical environment and our fears. Chanting also helps us to breathe easily and to compose ourselves.

Physiologically, the lodge helps to tune the autonomic nervous system, creating a new internal balance, smoothing out the peaks and lows of emotional and energetic changes.
Psychologically, it fosters feelings of well being, peace and self-worth. It is a powerful tool for growth and also for specific kinds of life difficulties, emotional turbulence and trauma.
There is an intrinsic value arising from participation in the sweat lodge. It is a powerful healing tool.

moon runes

The Moon represents the physical manifestation of the Goddess.
The Moon Goddess created time with all the cycles of creation, growth, decline and destruction.
The Dark Moon symbolises death, the void, transformation and rebirth.
The Dark Moon sweat is a celebration of great mystery. It represents the fruitful darkness from which all creation flows.
The Moon represents the subtle yet powerful force of cycles upon the planet and our bodies.
As she shifts the tides, she shifts our receptivity. The dark moon is a time to retreat, to meditate, to claim this power the power that creates all form.

We enter the lodge to hear the voices of grandmother moon. We emerge strong with the knowledge of our power and the truth of who we are.
These Sweats focus on the new moon of each month and the gifts that are available for us to draw upon and bring in to our daily lives.

balancing

Physiologically, the lodge helps to tune the autonomic nervous system, creating a new internal balance, smoothing out the peaks and lows of emotional and energetic changes.

So for only $20 come and join us on this fine and beautiful morning [it truly is a wonderful way to start the day] – bring a plate of sumptuous food to share after fasting overnight

Come and join us at the sweat to maximise these beautiful energies as we travel around the medicine wheel to gain vision from the east, strength from the north, healing from the west and insight from our medicine and ancestors in the south and bring all back to the centre of the lodge and the centre of ourselves where we truly discover ourselves as the axis mundi – the tree of life and the bridge between heaven and earth!!

Contact me if you wish to come at prue.blackmore@thrivebydesign.com.au for directions and to register.

Remember the New Moon here is an ideal day to write your aspiration list for all things Taurean!

Here we like the good life and are better at organizing our finances and future so your wish list could include things that relate to that for the next 12 months…..and also for adaptation to change lol xxx
