“SOURCING OUR MAGIC” ~ Writing and Ritual in the Garden
A One-Day Women’s Writing and Fall Equinox Retreat
with Janet Lucy and Eileen Cavanaugh and at Palomar Farm in Ojai
Saturday, September 24, 2022 from 1:00 to 5:00
“Practice listening to your intuition, your inner voice; ask questions; be curious;
see what you see; hear what you hear; and then act upon what you know to be true.
These intuitive powers were given to your soul at birth.” ― Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés
At Fall Equinox we celebrate the balance of day and night, following the waning light into a deeper inner knowing of our yin nature. Here is where our divine feminine power resides, awaiting awakening in the dark. At Palomar Farm in Ojai, the flowers have passed their peak and are releasing petals and seeds to regenerate new potential. Once again, we are called to gather and listen, to see what we see and hear what we hear. Turning to the Wheel of the Year, we’ll affirm the creative process from “Seed to Celebration” and discover insights into our own soul’s journeys around the sun. We invite you to join us for a magical, inspiring afternoon of remembering, writing and ritual in the garden, where we’ll revel in the mystery and wisdom of the flowers.
Cost: $195 ~ A non-refundable fee will hold your space. Open to 8 women.
Includes: An afternoon of reclaiming and sourcing our magic; inspiration and facilitated writing, sharing and witnessing; deep and expansive listening; ritual and magic making; nourishing refreshments. Bring a journal; take home a potent pouch of potpourri, a potion and your rekindled magic.
this is the recipe of life
said my mother
as she held me in her arms as i wept
think of those flowers you plant
in the garden each year
they will teach you
that people too
in order to bloom
