I am excited to announce the Mindful Muse Apprenticeship Program which begins September 2018!  Open to anyone with at least 6-months personal yoga practice.  Dharma provides personal guidance for those dedicated students wishing to inspire, challenge, and transform their personal spiritual practices while concentrating on Goddess Studies and the Divine Feminine.

If you are interested in tapping into your highest potential for the purpose of serving your family and friends, co-workers and community, as well as the world around you, join me as I holds the space for you to explore and develop the necessary tools to begin this journey from a safe and informed place embedded in your own personal wisdom and knowing.

August Moon

ganesh moon (photo: svayambhu.blogspot.com)

The Corn Moon of August represents the first harvest season.  The first harvest season being that of grain, then fruit and lastly meat.  The August Moon is also known as the Barley (grain!) Moon and Harvest Moon, all though September is more commonly known as the Harvest Moon.  Lammas, or Loaf Mass, is another label for this time of year in honor of the nurturing sustenance of grain and the miracle of bread.  This is a great time of year to start helping out or donating to local food banks, giving those less fortunate a chance to break bread together.

In the Hindu and yogic traditions, Lord Ganesha is honored during the August festival called Chauti.  He is a well-loved symbol of protection and is the remover of obstacles, and also rules over wisdom, good luck, literature, prosperity, and peace.

Be joyous, for this is the time of Ganesha!

The Lord of Obstacles comes riding to his festival,

With his help, all success shall be mine.

I greet you, Ganesha.

All obstacles in my life are removed.

I rejoice in your presence, Ganesha.

Good luck and new beginnings flow down upon me.

I praise you, Ganesha.

I rejoice!  For good luck and changes come.

-Conway

July Moon & Goddess Celebrations

Crescent-Moon-Goddess

The Full Moon of July is known by many names, most popular are Hay Moon, Thunder Moon, and Blessing Moon.  Named after Julius Caesar, this month was originally known as Quintilis.  July marks the month to celebrate the marriage of Isis and Osiris in the Egyptian lineage, and to celebrate Neptunalia for placating the god of the seas, Neptune, in the Roman mythos.  Maat is the Egyptian goddess of judgement and truth, also daughter of Ra and wife of Thoth, and whose workings are celebrated at the crescent moon.  Buddhabodhiprabhavasita is the Buddhist goddess who controls the awareness of Buddha and is a mediator and teacher of universal truths.  My personal patron Goddess and Saint is the blessed Mary Magdalene whose feast day is celebrated on July 22nd.  More Goddess representations are listed below.  This month direct your awareness towards personal growth and improvements by increasing your knowledge, creating, make efforts for prosperity, as well as remembering to take the time to nurture and enjoy yourself.

We strive toward Spirit again and again,

With faltering steps, unsure of the way.

Open the gates of enlightenment.

Make for us a new day

Of karmic purpose and goal,

A path to a new Earth soul.
