Connected Soul

Yoga retreat with Jessica Archer Nuzzo
Saturday October 27th 4~ 6:30pm  $40
Emerging Space Greenhouse

This potent time of year is one of transition, moving towards darkness and what is known as the dream time.  Nature invites us to go inward and listen, so that we can become more receptive and open to the energies all around us.


All Souls Day, Halloween & Dia de los Muertos all honor the dead, reminding us that the veil between the worlds is thin in these moments. If we pause and feel, we can find connection with those who are no longer embodied in this world; we can be connected to all souls in all realms. Our afternoon of  gentle yoga will include movement, breath, labyrinth walk, reflective writing, deep rest and sacred connection.

Please bring Yoga Mat, blanket and Journal.
Space is limited Please Register Here
or text (917) 572-8186 ~ email
Looking forward to sharing sacred moments with you all, in the
Emerging Space Greenhouse (New home of the Moon Mothers)

Sprit of Hecate

On this first full moon of summer we invoked the spirit of Hecate, (Greek Goddess of crossroads).  As we drummed chanted and walked the sacred labyrinth, personal questions became clear and keen insight prevailed. Below is a poem that encapsulates our communal experience.

Getting There by David Wagoner

You take a final step and, look, suddenly You’re there.

You’ve arrived At the one place all your drudgery was aimed for:

This common ground Where you stretch out, pressing your cheek to sandstone.

What did you want to be?

You’ll remember soon.

You feel like tinder Under a burning glass, A luminous point of change.

The sky is pulsing Against the cracked horizon, Holding it firm till the arrival of stars In time with your heartbeats.

Like wind etching rock, you’ve made a lasting impression On the self you were By having come all this way through all this welter Under your own power,

Though your traces on a map would make an unpromising Meandering lifeline.

What have you learned so far?

You’ll find out later, Telling it haltingly Like a dream, that lost traveler’s dream  Under the last hill  Where through the night you’ll take your time out of mind  To unburden yourself  Of elements along elementary paths  By the break of morning.

You’ve earned this worn-down, hard, incredible sight Called Here and Now.

Now, what you make of it means everything, Means starting over:

The life in your hands is neither here nor there  But getting there, So you’re standing again and breathing, beginning another Journey without regret.

 

Below are a few pictures from our gathering.

 

May you be refreshed by Mother Ocean and feel at ease in the shade of mighty trees.

Happy Summer,

Sincerely,

Spring Awaking

At dusk we donned fragrant flowers in our hair.  With fire and breath we ignited dried sage to cleanse our aura in preparation of casting our circle.ostara01

On this first full moon of Spring and second blue moon of this most auspicious year, we resurrected the spirit of Ostara, the Celtic Goddess of Spring.

Like a Mother gently calls her children to rise and shine for the beginning of a new day; Ostara silently calls to all the plants and animals to awaken to the season of re-birth.  Her summons triggers the rooting down and sprouting up of the sleeping seeds, blanketed in earth.

Ostara is the hostess of the Spring jamboree.  She decorates our world with rainbows, scented flowers and waterfalls.  Birds sing her invitation to enjoy her festive bounty.  She serves nourishing carrots, kale, radishes, asparagus, spinach and peas to strengthen our body. She provides more hours of daylight to nourish our soul.  Ostara inspires all living creatures to frolic in jubilee and creativity.

We Moon Mothers, paid homage to Ostara and our personal creative dreams by rhythmically dancing the Fertile Seed ritual.  We heeded her call of new creation by giving birth to poetry and art.

 

Below is a poem by Helen Mary Schaeffer-Stanford, written just after our Fertile Seed dance.

Ostara Dance

Goddesses gathered.
Powerful, complete.
Knowing and wise.
Sisters of the Moon.

Goddesses gathered.
Ancestors join us.
We chant, Hail Mother Earth.
We dance.
We dance the dance that awakens our spirits to Ostara.

Goddesses gathered.
Warriors blessed.
Wild abandon.

Thank you ladies for showing up so brightly on the Blue moon.  Your art & poetry is so magnificently beautiful. You may want to read your writings at the Open Mic Poetry reading,  Arise Gallery,  678 Portola Dr. San Francisco, Sunday, April 29th, 1pm “til 2:30pm.

May you flourish this season. See you next full moon.

Sincerely,

Tamara Trejo

Rippling Wisdom Wand

Nice to know that our Divine feminine, creative work is far-reaching and empowering women in the heartland.

below is an email that I received last week.  Also my response, giving a brief explanation of wisdom wand creations.

Hello Tamara
My name is Kathy and I have recently discovered your wordpress blog and been following. I have come to feel moved to ceremony and ritual and have very much enjoyed your posts and would love to bring something like this to my area (southeast Iowa).
I do have a circle of Sisters that I gather with monthly but they don’t seem to have the call to work with the moon phases for our meet dates as I do, but they do enjoy learning more spiritual and esoteric topics.
I would love to offer the chance to create the wisdom wands such as what you will be creating on the March 1 full moon but I know nothing about them and when I Google them I don’t get what I believe would be anything close to what you and your circle would have in mind for them so I am asking if you would be open to sharing what you can with me about them, the who, what, why etc and then I can get busy manifesting this for my circle.
I do appreciate anything you share with me on this!! Thank you so much!!
Much love,
Kathy

Hello Kathy,

Happy to hear that our Divine feminine circle is rippling to the heartland.

We coined the term “wisdom wand” for last summer’s Solstice gathering.

The premise is to infuse the wand with “I am” statements. Example I am an artist, I am a good mother, I am a gardener, I am an activist and so on and on.
Also I am grateful statements. Example, I am grateful for my husband, I am grateful for my home, I am grateful for my circle of women. Etc.

It’s a creative meditation that will end with the creation of a powerful wand infused with personal “I am” power and gratitude.

I use twigs as a base. We wrap the twigs with strips of fabric, yarn, strands of beads and feathers. Each wrap we say our I am statement and an I am grateful statement.

The ladies take their wisdom wands home and put them on their home altar and use them when divine wisdom light is needed.

Hope this description helps you lead this powerful process.

Here’s a link to your last wisdom wand making circle.

Let me know how it goes

PS. I have created two books based on the Divine feminine Goddess and women’s circle. www.moonmothers.net

Pure Potentiality

On this potent Blood-Blue-Super-Full-Moon, we Moon Mothers celebrated the pure potentiality of this new year.  Through ancient ritual, remembering splendid moments from the past, creating and sharing, we magnetized ourselves to universal abundance.

Below are a couple of poems created on this night of practical magic.

Holding up flowers in devotion to the tree, to the Goddess, to all Life
This is my season of dreaming, of renewal, restoration
Singing in the temple, so familiar
Tress nature cathedral – sacred is sacred
How can I keep from singing?
I long to return to the holy places where I once served
Thank you for the beauty of nature, the beauty I look for and always see.
May I travel unencumbered.
May I sing your praises everyday.

Equal World

It is an Equal World.
I open to my best as I rest
In the grass of Heart’s Green Desire
I allow the goddess
Receive the gift
The hummingbird sings
My Voice has wings
Words are like nectar as I write
True calling is heard both day and night
Accept the Mother Mary
Vessel of Pure Potential
World spins
I surrender
Nurture Self
Wise owl calls

Ixchel08

As you navigate this new year, may you create what ever you feel called to create and celebrate the simple moments.
