It's Beltane Season!

This is the time of fertility in all things and of magical growth.Fertility in all things means that this is a great time to start your next project, or to renew your energy in something your have previously begun. This is also a marvelous time to stop and smell the flowers, to garden, to take a walk on the beach or in the woods, and to be truly present to springtime. And yes, you can do both! When you take a moment to enjoy the world around you, you will have extra energy and extra time to work on those things to which you are giving birth! May, and Beltane in particular, is a sensual time. Feel the sun on your skin. Smell the flowers. Check in with loved ones.

Astrological Beltane, the midpoint between Equinox and Solstice, will be on May 5th this year. This one of two times of the year when the veil is at its thinnest. It is an excellent time to connect with the fae and the elves, to encourage your plants to flourish, and to celebrate the gifts and benefits of those who came before you, blood relations or not. This can mean fertilizing your trees, feeding your roses, and moving your houseplants around (they like a change in scenery sometimes too!). It can mean taking the time to look at what you have accomplished in the last 6 months, and to set new goals for yourself. It can mean celebrating your loved ones who have moved on, creating a bright and joyous version of an ancestor's altar. It certainly means throwing open the wondows and letting spring into your home.

It's also a great time to pitch and clean up your neighborhood, or the beach, or a nearby riverbed. Organize a work party. Join someone else's. carry a trash bag with you when you are out and about, and pick up trash. Sweep your neighbor's sidewalk as well as your own. Bring a few flowers from your garden to your next meeting and share the joy of the season with others.

Rivers, by the way, are the lifeblood of our urban areas. They carry the energy of the spirit of place for that city. If you want to revitalize a city, start by cleaning up and revitalizing the areas along the rivers. I met a woman recently who is working on a project in Los Angeles to create more connected green space along the Arroyo Seco. I love things like this. There's been another project to improve the area along the LA River, which has been wonderfully successful. Projects like this to incredible things to feed the totemic spirit of an urban area and should be encouraged and nurtured whenever possible.

Go forth and bring light!

Becoming The Goddess - Empowerment Workshop
The Western concept of power is one of straight lines and rigidity, which can increase our stress levels and make us brittle. By finding the power in flexibility and flow, we find that we can dance with the challenges in our lives, rather than being overcome by them. While this workshop focuses on Goddess archetypes, it is open to all gender identifications, because we could all use a little more flexible power in our lives. Drawing on Abrahamic and Goddess traditions, we will be creating a personal affirmation of empowerment that has helped people get out of abusive relationships, overcome social anxiety, and create real, tangible change in their lives.

Singing Bowl Meditation
A Singing Bowl Meditation is a powerful way to bring your body to a state of calm using crystal singing bowls as the conduit. During the meditation, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls are played while we sit or lie in meditative bliss. The sound floods us with ethereal vibrations which deepen our meditation and connection with All. In addition to promoting overall relaxation, increasing resistance to stress, boosting energy levels, alleviating psychosomatic pain, lessening depression and improving digestion, this practice re-balances the autonomic nervous system, and brings the body, mind and spirit to a state of equilibrium.
Reservations are essential—please call (661) 252-4103
