The season of harvest is upon us!
Mother' Nature's bounty is coming to fruition.
The Sun begins to wane in the early Autumn sky.
Our awareness turns towards gratitude
as we contemplate the mystery of sacrifice.
Whether we are sacrificing the beans on the vine in the garden,
or a way that we think or behave,
this time on the Wheel asks us to consider:
what will we sacrifice for the highest good of all?

Each moment in time leaves it's signature on our hearts and souls. Some moments are more powerful than others, but when we stay present to each and every one, we claim a more peaceful way of living.
The height of the solar year approaches, a glorious moment of radiance and power. What might be possible if we learn to stay in the moment?

Sometimes, often, the difference between merely existing and truly living is feeling on purpose. We are all here for good reason. What if we held the thing we love most to do in this world, the thing we most value, as our mission?
What is the mission for your life?

Ah, Love! One thing we know, no matter what, we love. Even when we have been terribly wounded and our hearts have been broken, we still love. We can’t help ourselves. We love. We are wired to love. Our love can be familial, or romantic, or altruistic, it can be pristine, it can be tainted, it can be conditional, it can be wary, it can gush, it can trickle, but still we love. And that, I believe, is because we are made of that precious stuff!

Jan. 1 is merely another day on the continuum.
And yet the new year brings a sense of beginnings, of starting over.
There's another train. There always is.

The year draws to a close and Winter brings a time of deep reflection. The beauty of the season elicits a great sense of wonder about the resiliency of the human spirit, about holding steady during stormy times, and the power of love to heal our hearts.

It is our nature to want to belong, to feel a part of a family, clan or tribe.
But what do we do when we don't feel we belong?
How can we shift our experience of isolation into an experience of gratitude?
Join with us this Sunday morning as we reflect on 'belonging'.
Prepare your heart for joyfulness as the coming holiday season draws near.

Why is it that the one thing we know for sure, that someday we will die, is the thing about which we most attempt to stay in denial? As Samhain draws near, please join us and reflect on how embracing our mortality makes for the best kind of living!

Autumn returns with her cool, gentle pull.
The long days of summer she'll steal.
Then she fills our hearts with a harvest of plenty
As we turn toward the dark half of the Wheel...
Celebrate a decade and a half of worship in Gaia's Temple!
Come to experience the magick of a trance-like journey as we prepare to enter the dark half of the Wheel of the Year together!

The ripening of the year is upon us. As the harvest begins, we do well to prepare for the coming seasons of fallow. Discernment is needed: What will we need, what is not necessary? What must we continue to tend, what must we sacrifice for our higher vision of life?
