The Grand Mother of Winter!

The Grand Mother of Winter is known as The Callieach, the Irish Goddess of the fierce cold and bracing wind. Embodying the fallow time that ensures future fertility, this Goddess carries the wisdom of the ages. What insight does the Ancient Hag bestow in Her elemental nature as we begin a new turn on the Wheel of the Year?

After the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the solar year, the days will begin to grow longer toward the light half of the Wheel. We celebrate the return of the light. As the Yuletide approaches, we look within to find the light that we carry and see what needs rekindling. Join us to reflect on the light that we are, and how best to shine into the world for the highest good of all.

It's a Gift, Not A Given!

If this year has taught us anything it is not to take anything for granted. Of course, this is how we should live all the time. What happens when we live as if every moment was precious?

The Other Side!

We refer to the afterlife as 'the other side', a place of rest for our souls when they leave our bodies. The realm of the Ancestors. This season offers the perfect time to contemplate the counterbalance of life on the other side. Join us to reflect on this great mystery.

Embrace the dark

The Maiden Goddess Persephone crosses the threshold to the Underworld at the Autumn Equinox, a metaphor for entering into the dark half of the Wheel of the Year. Her mother Demeter must comes to terms with this truth. As we cross this threshold, how will we embrace the darkness to ease our way? What light will we bring with us as we go? What magick will sustain as along the journey?

Kimberly Agbayani, Pamela Gerke, Elizabeth Zinda, and Wendy Rule!

The year progresses.  With autumn on the horizon, the time of harvest approaches. There is work to be done before the season of fallow to come. This is the time to ask: how did the garden fare? What are we reaping? How can we make good use of this time and preserve what will be needed?  The old saying 'make hay while the sun shines' is a wise one, both practical and metaphoric. In our hearts and in our souls, what must we do to ensure a future we want to meet in time?

As the first harvest of the grains approaches on the Wheel of the Year,

gather to worship the abundance of Mother Earth

and the precious kernels of truth She offers

as nourishment for our bodies and souls.

The Nature of Resurrection!

 

Only three times in the close to 20 years of Gaia's Temple worship has our monthly service fallen on Easter.

Keeping with the theme of the season and the resurrection of life to the surface of Mother Earth, I'll be relaying the tale of the ancient Goddess Inanna, the Queen of Heaven and Earth. There is much to learn from Her rich story of descent and ascent. What must we do to ensure we return and recover from dark times?
