At this cross roads of solar year, we’ll honor the rainbows we created in the dark and prepare ourselves to receive gifts from the sun-kissed expansiveness of summer. We’ll gather for a mini-gathering of creative exploring of inner and outer landscapes as the season truly moves us into the light.
From one of Carolyn’s Walks with Mellissae’s Oracle of Initiation
The weather will determine if we will be making imaginal/meditative journeys or actually being active in the natural world. Either way we will include symbols, oracles, and sacred practices of walking, wandering, and altar creating in our exploring of the themes of:
- Crossroads – What is the dark you are emerging from? What waits to initiate you into the next phase of your journey? What path will you step upon?
- Guides – What allies and guides are calling to you from the threshold of light? How can you connect with them, listen to them, cooperate with them? What messages are emerging from them?
- Trust – How to follow in trust and love what the light that comes from within is guiding you to?
Timing: Sunday, May 3rd from 1pm to 5:30pm
Where: Easthampton, MA. We’ll have both in-door and out-door options to work with whatever the weather delivers.
Cost: $50 – But register before April 6 for the Early Bird Price of $42. Price includes some oracle cards you will be able to keep, ritual materials, and some yummy snacks.
