I have always had deep need for community, it has been an embarrassing need especially as I have been painfully shy in my life at times.
This need, has led me to live on 3 communes, sit next to strangers at parties and mumble incoherent words in hope of sparking some connection, it has me offering out my things and time and skills, it has me going to neighbourhood courses, hosting felting days, putting on birthing-ways and sending out signals via all the many ways I can, it has led me to write a blog and have a presence on facebook, it has me dreaming of creating markets and gatherings, meditation groups and link ups, it’s a strong energy in me and largely unmanifest due to my strangeness and as I said shyness.
As I grew into my spirit, there was many woman elders who have helped me and sheltered me in those growing girl times of need, but in the last few years as a woman… there has been a lack for me, of a nourishing community.
I have grown into my family so very well; we are close and connected beyond my highest hopes. I am rather fulfilled, more than I ever thought I could be, yet I have longed for sisterhood in my life, where relationships can bloom in true acceptance for the journey each individual is on.
I have had a romantic notion, that one day I would be a part of a wise woman’s circle, where individuals and the group as a whole, could evolve safely, with out judgement and with gentle openness, for being the people that we are.
A strong circle of woman becoming wise… In my imaginings it would be cast at night under a full moon, we would move together, through the trees to a clearing, we would each bring our own medicine and share wine, stories and dance raising energy, shaking out the restraints of the ordinary, becoming more than our usual role,… super natural women.
I never gave up on this dream…
I feel like I am finally coming to a circle, sharing something of beauty with fellow travellers on life’s road, I will be attending Laurens intuitive heart sanctuary, it will begin on the 25th of June, a few days before the Capricorn full moon, my moon and I will sit at my desk with my heart and mind open, moon rays penetrating my being, and discover what there is to discover.
Won’t you join us beautiful woman, in a sacred circle time, join Lauren as she brings us together and facilitates a space for us to grow… you know I would love to see you there…
This is the link to the sanctuary.
And this is the link to this brave, beautiful and generous being… Lauren Luquin
And in unrelated but highly appropriate poetry, I share with you this poem that I am feeling very into at the moment...
Charge of the Star Goddess
I who am the beauty of the green earth
And the white moon among the stars
And the mysteries of the waters,
I call upon your soul to arise and come unto me.
For I am the soul of nature that gives life to the universe.
From Me all things proceed and unto Me they must return.
Let my worship be in the heart that rejoices, for behold-
All acts of love and pleasure are My rituals.
Let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion,
Honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.
And you who seek to know Me, know that your
Seeking and yearning will avail you not, unless
You know the Mystery:
For if that which you seek, you find not within yourself,
You will never find it without.
For behold, I have been with you from the beginning,
And I am that which is attained at the end of desire
