Not So Much Wiser, Just Less Weary.



I've been away for two days at a Wise Women's Weekend, two towns over. It was a wonderful time and a much needed break. I spent my weekend taking classes like: The Celtic Wheel of the Year (I know about the Sabbats - but the teacher is a friend of mine from Ireland, so it was great to hear how her ancestors celebrated) Using Your Intuition, Shamanic Journeying, Healing Crystal Meditation, and Goddess Art. I also managed to get a healing session and a tarot reading in. I feel wonderful, and have gained a bit of wisdom in regards to what parts of my life I need to work on.

I hope you are all feeling the blessings of Autumn and these few days of balance, as we sit on the verge of the Equinox. It really is a wonderful time to reflect, enjoy the bounty of our gardens, and look ahead to the darker season yet to come.

This is one of the Celtic blessings my friend shared with me this weekend:

"May the nourishment of the earth be yours, may the clarity of light be yours, may the fluency of the ocean be yours, may the protection of the ancestors be yours."

Blessings to you.

Welcome home Rue! I am glad that you had such a refreshing time, I would LOVE to do something like that!

Your post made me smile tonight ( in the wee hours before I carry myself to bed before the sun comes up ) as soon as I saw the word balance, and I am not even sure why. The whole post brought a smile to my face, starting with the picture up top...it has long been a favorite of mine...

Welcome back! *Hugs*

That sounds like a wonderful weekend! I am studying up on the Sabbats to better integrate them into my life. Autumn is my favourite season and I'm looking forward to learning a lot from you. :) Thanks for letting this silly Buddhist tag along for the ride.

Wow! Sounds like an incredible weekend! I can't tell you how much I wish I could find things like that here locally. There's just...nothing.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that quote at the end and have saved it in my files, if that's okay with you.

Happy Mabon, dear friend.
