Welcome to the first official issue of Creative Spirit Circle Journal…our newsletter has undergone a rebirth and is re-emerging as a collaborative community effort designed to support your life, your spirituality, your local community, and your personal practices! Each issue will include resources shared by you as well as articles, ceremony outlines, book reviews, and reflections.
The theme of this issue is Summer as we approach the Summer Solstice and the June Full Moon. We've prepared a special gift for you, a Summer Ritual Kit! The outlines, projects, and resources in the kit can be enjoyed throughout the summer season. The kit contains:
We hope you enjoy it!
- Two ceremony outlines (individual and group)
- Tutorials for two projects
- Summer poem
- “Blessing and Blooming” mandala activity
- Wild berry cobbler recipe
Featured Goddess: Artemis
I call you to the hunt.
We will run with the wild.
Singing the song of hoofbeat on stone.
I tell of sacred guardians
and the arrow's flight of truth.
Learn more about Artemis including book recommendations and ritual ideas in her companion blog post.

Our new Summer Altar Kits are ready in the shop! We have two versions, both including a limited edition Summer Story Goddess sculpture. Our first five deluxe summer kits sold out in less than thirty minutes, so we now have five more deluxe kits that include a gorgeous hand-dyed Triple Moon altar cloth and 20 that have a plain green small altar cloth.
We are also taking limited pre-orders on new Chakra Goddess sets (we only have enough materials for 15 of each of the chakra belts, though we can order more charms if there is enough interest). A full set of seven goddesses is $105 and includes a gemstone chakra bracelet (it is also more than $20 off compared to purchasing each goddess separately! That’s like one free goddess. )
- The Goddess Magic Circle has begun and the experiences we've been having together so far are beautiful to witness! Almost 40 women have joined the Circle from around the world and I love sharing sacred space with them. Registration remains open if you'd like to join us and create some powerful magic together!
- On the Brigid's Grove blog:
- We're having a super special summer deal on the Womanrunes Immersion class in honor of the original birthday of Womanrunes on summer solstice 1987. It is half price through June 21! If you already have the book, it is an even more super deal! (Use code "previouspurchase" for the discount.) I am moving it into the Motherhouse of the Goddess class platform and this is the last time this year that I will offer it as a scheduled class--it will be transitioned to self-study/rolling enrollment after this month.
Gift of the month...we like sending extra gifts to our loyal customers. In June, we offer you a free tiny rose-gold lighthouse or one of our unfinished mini "scrap" goddesses. Just mention "lighthouse" or "tiny goddess" on your order comments and we'll pop it in (no order too small!).
May you bask in the sunshine and in the warmth of celebration this month,
Molly, Mark, + Family
