Hello Lovely ones!
The end of November has come by all too quickly and our minds are probably turning to Yule time, so I’m offering a discount on “bundles”…see below for some suggestions of Moon times goodies that might make perfect gifts!
In my womens circles I encourage women to take time out each month, whether its at their moontime, or for the non cycling women by connecting to the moon, and reflecting on the month and “gathering their bundles”….some women like to make physical bundles and prayer ties, placing items into small pieces of fabric and symbolically tying them as offerings or keeping them for their altars or nature spots. Some women “gather their bundles” by journalling, writing down their thoughts, wisdoms gathered over the month, perhaps things they wish to let go of…perhaps this is something you may want to incorporate in to your month in some way?
In The Shop
After doing a advent fair at the weekend, and noticing the lovely “bundles” of goodies people were buying from me, I thought I would suggest some items that fit together to make lovely gifts…
One for the girls….Menarche book, with the beautiful Changing Woman Mandala and the gorgeous Daughters in Flower Oracle cards… or you could come up with your own bundles…use the code Advent to get 10% off any orders over £25.
On The Blog
A film you may have missed….one for mums and daughters….Monthlies, this came out a few years ago now, but its well worth watching and opening the menstruation conversation in your family!
Mid girl and menarche day for women at the Bristol Goddess Temple, February 4th 2018, 10-5 pm, Cost £65 (Limited places, book by Dec 1st)
There’s only a couple of places on the Scar Sister Day, Carmarthenshire, 28th Jan 201. Sacred Tattoo, Drum, Ritual and Ceremony, with tattooist Suzi Edwards (Earth Pathways Diary artist and sacred tattooist) and myself, Rachael Crow. A day of ritual tattooing. £100 per woman.
Drum Making, because of my broken wrist, I have had to cancel my November and December workshops, I have added some dates for 2018- the first is Jan 14th which will be a men and womens drum making session (book ASAP!), and Feb 17th is a Red Moon Drum workshop– making a red drum while looking at how the menstrual cycle is reflected in the wheel of the drum.
To book any of these workshops email firstname.lastname@example.org
Warm wishes, Rachael xxx
