Imbolc – the tender promise of Spring

Imbolc marks the halfway point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. This is a time of hope and beauty, an appreciation of the warmth of hearth and family, and the tender promise of Spring, when life is born anew.

Come and join Druids of the Light as we acknowledge this gentle, loving season of newness in a traditional way with a sacred sharing of candlelight and poetry, as we honor Brighid, the triple goddess of healing, inspiration, and hearth.

We will be meeting at Unity of Sedona on Saturday  afternoon, February 1st, 2020 at 4:00 pm, to celebrate this gentle time of promise.

You may bring poetry to share, or you can choose from the selection of poems that will be provided.

The ceremony is approximately 45 minutes long, and there will be a time of socializing after the ritual. Please feel free to bring light snacks to share.

Suggested love offering of $10, but none will be turned away for lack of funds.

Update on classes, services offered, and more!

After much thought, we have cancelled our weekly classes at Unity of Sedona. We will be holding monthly workshops, starting in February after Pantheacon at two locations – one is at the new Crystal Magic Psychic Center in West Sedona, and the other is at Orenda Nest at the Cottonwood Plaza in Cottonwood. We will keep you informed what we will be presenting and when.

In the meantime, you may want to take advantage of the fact that I will be providing Psychic Soul Readings at both locations. I am at Crystal Magic Psychic Center on Tuesdays from 3:30-closing, and Thursdays from 10:00-3:30. I am also at Orenda Nest on Mondays from 1:30-4:30.

As always, I am available to do phone readings, and I am still able to schedule readings to be held at Unity of Sedona when I am not at either of these locations.

And stay tuned…. I am looking to do more online, and within the next few months, I may be doing weekly classes. I am currently researching that.

Finally – I will be at Pantheacon in San Jose this year. This is the last year that Pantheacon will be held. I am part of the Family of Druidry suite, and will be presenting a class as well as being available to speak (and yes, I will have my cards with me!).

Winter Solstice Ceremony

The Winter Solstice is a solemn time, when we acknowledge the longest night. It is a time of introspection and profound beauty. As the seasons turn, it is also a time of celebration, as from this time forth in the wheel of the year, the light returns and the days grow longer.

Come and join Druids of the Light in acknowledgement of the darkness and the return of the light.  

We will be meeting at Unity of Sedona in the Serenity Chapel, 65 Deer Trail Drive, Sedona, AZ 86336 at 4:30 pm on Saturday evening, December 21st, 2019.

The ceremony is approximately 30-60 minutes long and there will be a time of socializing after the ritual. Please bring light snacks to share.

Suggested love offering of $10, but none will be turned away for lack of funds.

May this be the beginning of a wonderful season, as we move into clearer vision in 2020.

Weekly Druid classes resume

We have resumed our weekly Druid classes at Unity of Sedona. They are on Monday night at 6:00pm in the Chapel. We have been meeting for three years now, and it is very exciting to be continuing this wonderful time of camaraderie and learning. This week, we talked about the symbolism Samhain, and the origins of Halloween. We also did a brief ceremony for the ancestors. We introduced the topic of Moon Phases by talking about the New Moon and how we can use that energy for manifesting. And we showed slides of the British portion of our recent trip.

Next week and the week after, we will be focusing more on the Moon, as well as showing slides from Ireland and Scotland.

Highlights from the British Isles trip

We had an amazing trip to England, Ireland, and Scotland in the first two weeks of October. It was a very ambitious trip and we were able to see several sacred sites. This was a planning trip for future tours, and we sure learned a lot. In the future, the tours will be concentrated to certain areas. We are hoping to get something together as early as Spring 2020, so stay tuned.

We visited the following sites: In England: Tintagel, St. Nectan’s Glen, Glastonbury – Chalice Well, Glastonbury Abbey, and the town itself, Stonehenge, Avebury. In Ireland: Newgrange, Brigid’s Well in Kildare, Cnoc Aine, Lough Gur’s newly excavated Grange Circle, Bunratty Castle, Hill of Tara. In Scotland: Edinburgh Castle, the Scottish borders, Rosslyn Chapel and Rosslyn Castle.

Here are some highlights from the trip in photos!

Samhain – Honoring the Ancestors

Samhain is a sacred time when we welcome the turning towards winter, the last of the harvest celebrations, the half way mark between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice.

It is also often considered to be the beginning of the Druid New Year. We honor our ancestors at this time when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest.  

Come and join Druids of the Light in a very special Ancestor Rite in honor of Samhain, followed by a special blessing to carry us into the coming year.  We will be meeting at Unity Peace Park (the lawn) at the back of Unity of Sedona, 65 Deer Trail Drive, Sedona, AZ 86336 at 4:30 pm on Saturday evening, October 26, 2019.

The ceremony is approximately 30-60 minutes long and there will be a time of socializing after the ritual. Please bring light snacks to share.

Suggested love offering of $10, but none will be turned away for lack of funds.
