Star Gazers/Full Circle retreat – Lammas

   Posted by: earthkat   in Uncategorized

On the first weekend in August (Aug. 3rd, 2013), sunny days and cool evenings brought four participants – Alethea Shiplett, Stephanie Simpson, Jenna Senocak and Ashley Baker – out to the picnic table on the porch at Fey Meadows Farm for crafting and feasting. Jenna, resident chef, cooked wonderful gluten-free, locally sourced meals for us throughout the weekend.

Stephanie and Alethea exchanged tarot readings. Ashley taught the ladies how to make brooms while Jenna made a wicker basket.

The group planned the Lammas ritual around balancing fear, faith and the future, using various divination tools including pendulums, scrying and runes.

Nature showed up in the forms of deer in the meadow, a bright and bushy red fox, and beautiful birds, butterflies and flowering and fruiting flora. Alethea’s new baby bunny, Zen Cookie, got lots of snuggles and the only boy on site, Zorro the dog, hung out much of time with the ladies.

Reproductive Justice

   Posted by: earthkat   in reproductive justice

For the next four years, the chosen social justice issue for UU congregations is reproductive justice. One of the Red Tent Event workshop will focus on this issue through women and politics. We’ve come across some great links for online petitions concerning reproductive rights.  These are the opinions of some of the women in Full Circle. They do not represent the opinions of the UUCA administration and congregation.  Read more to see links to current issues.

March Moon – Wolf Moon

   Posted by: earthkat   in full moon

Friday we celebrated an excellent moon on Wolves! We talked about how important wolves are to us personally. We learned how important wolves are in the ecosystem, as proven by the re-introduction in Yellowstone National Park. We thought about things we would like to cull from our lives, just as wolves cull the weakest to let the herd thrive. And of course we howled at the moon!

August 1 – Lammas

   Posted by: earthkat   in harvest, Sun Holiday

Lammas or Lugnasdaugh is the celebration of the first harvests of the year.  The primary food group is wheat and bread goods.  The beginning of Lammas marks the waning of the summer, and the waxing of autumn.  It’s hard to believe with all the 95+F days we’ve had, that fall is just around the corner.

May you always have enough bounty for you and your friends! Happy Lammas!
