Hello, and welcome, Dear Hearts,
Autumn is just around the bend, and here in the Pacific Northwest the air is crisp as the vibrant russet leaves that are beginning to twirl on the winds. Children are, for the most part, back to school, there’s a matter-of-fact-ness burgeoning forth as we realize this is our window for last-ditch efforts before we ring in yet another new year.
Equinox seasons are tumultuous. They’re all about change and shift and shedding and rebirthing. The Veil between realms thins, and an Otherwordly nuance washes over our daily activities. We lean into the coolness, the dampness, embrace the chill in our bones. Pile on the physical layers, while peeling back the etheric ones.
September 21st Lapis Moon students returning (and new!) will be embarking on a new season of studies, focused on the Crone in all Her wild glory. Whether it’s Dedicants or Priestesses, they’ll be learning about ancestor veneration, treading the line between this realm and the next, working with bones, and using divination as a compass to guide their way. Coursework tailored to meet the needs and degree of profiency of each sister.
For those newer (newest?) to the Craft of all things Wild and Mystical, a new course is being offered: Moon Rhythms. A 90 Day discovery into Mindfulness and Magic. If you feel this Path calling to you, but don’t know your athame from your boline, Moon Rhythms is for you. An online, highly interactive course with lots of one on one, personalized attention. We’ll be discussing everything from how to set up, tend, and utilize an altar, to basic meditation practices, the effects of the moon’s phases (and how to utilize them to your advantage), mindfulness tips and tricks, cultivating intuition with the support of basic divination tools, as well as daily ritual implementation, and what the heck a ritual is, to begin with. You’ll have regular journaling prompts, coupled with bi-monthly live stream lectures, and bi-monthly one on one phone mentoring sessions with me.
Moon Rhythms is a fantastic introduction into the fundamentals and foundational cornerstones of a fruitful spiritual practice. It’s also a wonderful steppingstone into the more involved, and dedicated work offered in Levels II, III, and IV of Lapis Moon Mysteries School. The Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step: this is it.
There’s limited space available for Moon Rhythms (and spots are already quickly filling!). If you’d like to ensure your spot in October’s journey, and finish up 2018 on an energetically high note, message me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss enrollment. There will be a second course offering (either December or January… TBA) that will also serve as a waiting list, for those unable to get into October’s course.
I am thoroughly excited for Autumn’s studies, in all their manifestations, and am eagerly anticipating this work I am honored to share with y’all.
Yours in mystery,
