On Equinox Dedication: I’d love to have our dedication equinox weekend be in-person if possible! But if you are unable to attend an in-person retreat because of travel restrictions, accommodation will be made for you to complete your dedication from home virtually.
 
Ceremony Times: We will discuss what times work best for the entire group when we meet at Samhain. 

 

We will be using my teacher Kathy Jones’ book Priestess of Avalon, Priestess of Goddess as a guide through our spiral together. If you are in Europe, I recommend purchasing the book directly from Kathy’s Website or on Amazon. 

If you are in the US or Canada: You are more than welcome to check shipping prices on Amazon, but I have purchased a bulk order from Kathy and am happy to ship the book to you directly, if need be. Locals are welcome to pick up the text from my home.  

Upon registering, you will receive your homework/reading assignments to complete prior to our opening ceremony at Samhain, as well as the other suggested (but not required) books that will help support the deepening of your connection the Goddesses of the lands that hold you.

If any of the proposed weekend dates do NOT work for you, let me know and I will see if the other circle members might be willing to shift to a different weekend. I am specifically wondering about he October 31st start date and the December 18-20th dates.
