The Journey of a Year… Solstice Past, Present & Future

Ahhhh and thus my new expression of Self in my work has gone live! Please allow me to introduce you to…

The Order of the Wild Crone ~ the Art of Croning

 

Tis a whole new expression of my work after giving myself this last year to digest and synthesize the intensive study and work I had been pursuing over the previous years. And like others, most of humanity, it was a descent year, a ‘plunged into the underworld’ year, marked by the beginning of the plague. I had my own mini apocalypse going on, as I know so many did…
(story continued below…)

 

The season of the Crone begins on Winter Solstice, so the first events offered by the Order of the Wild Crone are on December 20th and 21st:

 

The Spirit of Solstice Past, Present & Future – Storytelling, Time Weaving & Writing

Winter Solstice invites us all into our winter hearths. Our Ancestors knew this as a time of prophecy, firelight, and gift-giving. In this event, we will allow the Winter Crone to be our teacher. Engage in a time-weaving ritual of Solstice Past with Present and Future. Then write our tales, which deepen us into the potent magick of this season. We will celebrate by sharing these stories with each other, giving one another the gift of gathering.

This experience will prepare you to meet the initiating moment of Winter Solstice. All wild creatures of all genders are welcome!

December 20, 2020, 10am-12pm (break for lunch) 1pm-3pm pdt

A Rite of Winter Solstice 2020 – Initiation of the Winter Crone & the Saturn-Jupiter Conjunction

Join me on this Winter Solstice for a Winter Solstice RITE…
And be Initiated by the Holy Wild forces of Nature – Saturn, Jupiter, Capricorn, Aquarius, & the Wild Crone through Mythtelling and Embodied Ritual. You will be sent a ‘Preparation for Ritual’ guide to engage in the rites, which will ripen and prepare you for this initiating moment. All wild creatures of all genders are welcome!

However you choose to mark this season, tis a potent time of magick to engage in ritual. The conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on Winter Solstice is going to catalyze a burst of the Holy Wild! I highly recommend you enter in, so as to be nourished and fortified for the dark winter that lies ahead… and to support the birth of your Dancing Star on Winter Solstice

All wild creatures of all genders are welcome!

The Sacred Grove of Trees – Painting Your Soul Tree

Join me for A painting journey of your Soul Tree… an expressive art experience using ritual in nature, journeying, and writing, to encounter your soul tree and give it life on the canvas.

Like the World Tree, our Soul Tree connects us to our roots – our Primal Ancestors, with our branches reaching out to our Future Generations. It is a home for the wild things that roam in our psyche, and a safe place for us to return to receive its life giving nourishment and support in our most difficult moments.

Please note: No previous painting experience required. You will be guided. In expressive art, the less trained you are, the freer the flow from the unconscious for your Soul Tree to come through in all of its spontaneous organic wonder!

All wild creatures of all genders are welcome!
2 Day Workshop – January 9th & 10th – Capricorn New Moon

The Journey of a Year…

Tis a whole new expression of my work after giving myself this last year to digest and synthesize the intensive study and work I had been pursuing over the previous years. And like others, most of humanity, it was a descent year, a ‘plunged into the underworld’ year, marked by the beginning of the plague. I had my own mini apocalypse going on, as I know so many did…

The break out for social justice pouring out of the heart of the breakdown was breathtaking to witness. Waking us up to what can no longer be tolerated by the consciousness we have arrived to. The erosion of the world economy as it had been, leaving humans who’ve never experienced standing in food lines, having no work, losing their homes. All of these roiling events leading to a massive breakdown of old systems, structures and behaviors that no longer serve.

As one who scrys the stars… the accuracy of the transits that heralded these events are why I am a devotee of this art. January 13th, 2020, the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. A 240 year occurrence. All of us knew it was going to be epic. It was easy to see the economy going down. The breakdown of the rule of the old order. But the virus? I’ve only heard of one astrologer who saw that coming, though scientists have predicted it for years.

It was not only the collective going through these initiations. By its course, these events influenced each one of us personally, in many cases, causing dramatic upheavals of families, ways of life, relationships, and so much death. We are different. We are changed.

While many are cursing 2020 as it comes to a close, the jewels birthed out of it have been epic. Painful, and brilliant. Yes, initiations that don’t kill us, makes us stronger on the deepest levels.

For generations to come, 2020 will be seen as a pinnacle year of radical change. A crossroads for humanity which in the end chose a new destiny over the one of total destruction we were speeding toward.

Yes, there is still much work to be done with a great crisis at hand. Yet the hope that rises from these ashes, this hope for me are the humans who have matured and fortified themselves to face the truth and take action on these serious issues.

This iteration of my work is one of my jewels and offerings to this Great Work… The Order of the Wild Crone – the Art of Croning and I am so excited to share it with you!

A Tribute to Danielle Dulsky

Danielle Dulsky, has been a primary teacher for me over these last years during some of the more radical initiations and growth I have gone through in my lifetime which has resulted in this next level of my development. The trainings with her gave me a haven to grow, while honing my skills as Artist, Witch, Writer. The trainings were rigorous, her direction holy and fully unto the specificity of my wild soul.

I bow, screeching into the moonless night! Howling in the fullness of my gratitude to Life and its riches.

Hallowed Be, Wild Ones. Hallowed Be.
