July Giveaway!

Since I've started off July by talking about my path, I thought I'd use that theme for the monthly giveaway too.  One person's path is very different from another, but from all the comments on the post "Witch Path" - I've noticed that regardless of what we call our faith/beliefs/path most of us follow the seasons of the year and mark those changes and transitions as the wheel turns.

This book by Bronwynn Forrest Torgerson is an illustration of one person's path, following the yearly cycle and the seasons of life.  This book gives each month of the year it's own chapter and theme.  There are stores, rituals, spells and songs to give you ideas on how you might celebrate the seasons, months and transitions of life.


Also included in the giveaway will be a package of my "Bliss Bath Tea" that I make with organic herbs and rose petals.  Using my own garden herbs and plants and wildcrafting locally is part of my path.  I'm very thankful to live in an area conducive to growing and that has such wonderful, healing wild plants!


Some other goodies that pertain to my path will definitely make it into the package too!  I will announce the winner on the Full Moon - July 15th - so you have 10 days to get your entry in.

As always, simply leave a comment here and let me know how we are aquainted.  Do you follow the blog, Facebook, Twitter, or RSS feed?  Please ensure that there is a way for me to contact you if you win!

It is most certainly the seasons that rule my world. I quite honestly live for the change of seasons....some more than others mind you, ha! And sadly, I don't even live in a place with a good distinction between the seasons. But I will! That is on my vision board....and I WILL live in a more northern place someday and tarry in my garden soaking in the beauty of the changing seasons. Until then, I will have to continue to visit New England in Autumn to get my Fall fix!

The book looks great, as do your herb goodies, so throw my name into the hat. We know one another from here and now also on Etsy! :o)

I just started following your blog today via RSS feed (I had your Witch Path post forwarded to me over the weekend, and read it this morning). I'm working back through the archives (randomly skipping, actually) and loving the photography.

The Traveler said...

How generous of you! I wish that this zone was more temperate and less desert (and I think my personal gardening skills, or lack there of might have something to do with it too...). Those bath teas look divine!

Maggie said...

This does sound like a lovely book! I love when people allow a peek into their spiritual worlds.

My practice is all about the seasons- as people who work so much with plants, it's something we're always thinking about and aware of. I feel the seasons right down in my bones, I swear.

Thanks for such a lovely post (Witch's Path) and giveaway. It really got me thinking about how I would describe my path right now. It would be a great theme post for people to emulate and link back to.

Hello lovely Rue,

I just love reading your blogs and viewing your give-aways, and even though I would love to put my hand up for it as I am a bookworm, I understand that the postage to Australia would be too much.

Keep up the good work Rue!!
