PLEASE JOIN US IN CELEBRATING OPENING DAY

401 PROSPECT WAY PRINCETON-BY-THE-SEA

Our Nomadic tribe now has a home.  We have renovated a sacred property where we can create art and hold Goddess ceremony.  The front portion of this divine property is a plant nursery (Pardini’s Nursery, established 1977).  The Moon Mothers gathering space is a simple cozy greenhouse located behind the nursery. Please join us in christening our new home on Saturday, July 14th.

We have been nurturing the plants for 2 new moons.
They are growing strong, blooming and ready for a new home.
Come and get some.

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,

Ixchell Medicine Moon Goddess

Ixchell whispers to us through her silent megaphone, “Go to the Redwoods when the moon is full.  There you’ll find a circle of women.  They too have heard my ancient call.  It’s time to return to your natural frequency.  Reset your innate rhythm, so you can walk through this modern world vibrating with healing energy.  You are the chosen ones who will save the world.”

Mothers Earth’s silent song is a lullaby that puts us at ease so we can be the healers we are meant to be.  She sings her constant vibrating song that is so easy to tune into.  One only needs to quiet oneself and lay one’s body down on to her body, to tune into her healing song.

Ixchell teaches us that to be vital, just, return to the ancient rhythm of Mother Earth. Our body yearns to connect to our planetary source.

Living in this modern time of clocks, schedules, deadlines and all the demands of our American culture, it’s so easy to become untethered from Mother Earth’s natural pulsating heatbeat that is our true heartbeat.

So on this last full moon of Spring, a dozen California women head Ixchell’s call.  We gathered in the mystical meadow among the Redwoods. To begin the healing reset process, we expressed ourselves by creating prayer flags,  placing our healing heart’s artistic symbols on cloth. In honor of Ixchell the weaver, we sewed them together on one long strong thread.

Then we laid ourselves down on Mother Earth and tuned into her healing voice.  To the beat of the Goddess drum the veil of the modern world was lifted and, we returned to our true earthy healing frequency.

I hope one day you can join us, as we celebrate the infinite goddess who lives with in us, Ixchell, medicine woman.

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.

Tamara Trejo
