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.

Holy Persistance

Blatant injustice seems to be the order of the day.
This month we'll explore the distinction between resistance and persistence on our spiritual path,
and ponder when and how each plays out in our '"interesting" times.

Soul Shine

Beneath fear, what resides in our souls? Beyond bitterness, what lives in our hearts? Without anxiety, what glows from within? As we celebrate the masculine principle of radiance and action, how does our Soul Shine?


Please join us to celebrate an early Father's Day!
Gentle Men, come and get your rose!

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman!

That's what a Mother is.

Strong, even when she feels weary. Wise, even when she feels uncertain. Capable, even when she feels overwhelmed.  Join us to celebrate the strength, wisdom and capability of all the Wonder Women we know, even if they don't have biological children!

Forgiveness

For some of us, holding a grudge is elevated to a high art. We reconcile being slighted by hardening our hearts, believing this will save us from future emotional pain. We opt for perceived safety, rather than work to repair and recover. But what is the cost of our hardened hearts? How do we drop the heavy load of bitterness we carry? How does forgiveness make us even stronger than shutting down and checking out?
