Mabon Autumn Equinox Sister Circle

autumn-equinox.jpg

Sister circles have been used for many years by women to gather and join in a community of support while encouraging the individual members to be themselves fully. Community feeds our soul! We realize that we are not alone because there is a network of women who is the root bed that upholds us through life's challenges. Being part of a women's circle also helps us to reconnect to the cycles and rhythms of Nature, both around us and within us. With this knowledge and awareness we can navigate the joys and challenges of life more skillfully and authentically.

This circle we celebrate Mabon, the Autumn Equinox ~ the festival that celebrates the balance of the Light and the Dark. The primary theme of the festival is gratitude for the harvest (both literal and metaphoric) and the observance of the balance point of life's polarities.  

My priestess sister, Christine Koth from Radiant Circle, and I will be co-facilitating this circle. In this circle we will offer a centering meditation, honoring of the elements and directions, ceremony and ritual, orientation, and lesson/transmission of the Equinox season. Other potential offerings include chanting, singing, drumming (bring hand drum if you have it), current astrology information, lighting candles, and journaling.

All of those in attendance will be able to participate to the degree they feel comfortable to.

The event location is at Christine’s NEW home. Please join us at 3323 Withersed Lane in Walnut Creek, CA.  Please bring a journal or paper, pen, cushion for sitting, and any personal items (crystals, pictures, etc.) that you would like to charge with the energy of the altar and gathering.

And don't forget to spread the word! This circle is open to anyone who identifies as female who would like to attend. We request that participants understand the adult nature of some of the topics, so please do not bring children. Mature teenagers are welcome. If you are not certain, then please email me at KristenDessange@SacredLifeCircle.com. You are encouraged to invite others or share this event!

"Know Thyself" Astrology Basics Workshop

Are you curious about astrology? Learning about this ancient art and science can help you live a more fulfilled life in this modern world.

The aim of astrology and yoga is the same – the expansion of consciousness and liberation of energy while living in this physical world. Astrology states that we are intimately connected with the rhythm of the universe, and points to a synchronicity between the movements of the moon, planets and stars with events in our life.

Astrology is the ancient practice of uncovering your inner self through the awareness of universal forces. It is based on the principle of "As above, so below." This understanding is that the microcosm and macrocosm are mirror reflections of each other. Just like there are similarities between the configuration of solar systems and atomic structure, your astrological chart will reveal who you really are, what motivates you, what you are good at, where your challenges are, and what your purpose it. Unlike the usually vague horoscopes that you may have read before, astrology is a powerful tool for self awareness and unlocking your potential, while fostering compassion for yourself and others.

This course will help you know the basics on how to read your birth chart. This will be a hands-on, easy to understand and practical view of the basics of astrology. You'll learn information about yourself that will directly impact your daily life in a tangible way. Handouts and worksheets will be provided so you can learn by doing. Your birth chart will be provided for you at the workshop by giving your birthday information in advance (birthday, exact birth time if available, and birth location will be requested by Kristen after registration for the course.)
