Humility!

April brings our awareness to the state of our planet on Earth Day. The quality of humility asks us to cultivate a lack of false pride, to engage in reciprocity, to remember we are a part of something greater
and more important than we can ever be as individuals.

The fertility of Spring has us fully engaged with nature's elements that create our shared reality. No matter what your personal story is, the earth is beneath you, the air fills your lungs, fire keeps you warm, and water quenches your thirst. How much more fully would we engage, how much more care would we take, if we remember that we don't just use the elements, we are the elements?

Temper Temper!

The Irish Goddess Brigid inspires us to passionately forge our future. How do we work with Her fire without getting burned or burning out? Thankfully, She also gifts us with healing waters to temper our work and thereby strengthen.

In This Together!

Despite our differences, we share this life, this world, this time. As we move forward into our future, what might happen if we truly grasp that our world would be healthier if we remember we are in this together?

Weathering the Storm

Sometimes we just have to put our heads down and stay strong while the storm rages. Our faith keeps us strong and helps us remember that no storm, no matter how powerful, can rage forever. In this extreme season of the Winter Solstice, polarities don't have to mean conflict. Finding light within the darkness is how love holds the balance.

An Early Thanksgiving Feast in Gaia's Temple

Instead of our usual fare, this service will BE a Thanksgiving meal!  Gaia's Temple will provide the turkey and we are asking everyone to bring a side dish and/or  non-alcoholic beverage to share. We will reflect on and count our blessings, offer prayers of gratitude,  partake of the meal with heightened consciousness, and share a feast in loving community. Come one, come all!

Because my soul’s evolution is a journey, I hope to be evolving into a better human being. I hope with each life I am learning to be wiser, to be kinder, to be more generous and more forgiving. That is what I am working on in this life for sure. And I hope that the sum of my lives are like pearls on a necklace, creating and increasing in beauty along the way. Beauty that serves the world. That is a comfort to me. I might not feel that comfort as I go through the deep lessons that are usually painful in the short term, but when I think of my souls’ journey over time, I find comfort in that long term understanding, the bigger picture.

A Choice To Change

Persephone makes a choice that causes great change within her realm of influence. Demeter would rather her daughter chooses otherwise. All of us feel the impact of choices we haven't or wouldn't make. How adept are we at adapting? As we turn to face the dark half of the Wheel of the Year,
how do we make adjustments to ease suffering?

The Sun and the Moon share the heavens but it's how they interact on Earth that models the beauty of unconditional love. Just past the sabbat of Lughnassad, and in this time of multiple eclipses, join us to contemplate the loving relationship of the Divine Union, which brings blessedness to life.
