Harvest Our Shadows & Free the Light!

Presented by Priestesses in Training: Laura, Kathleen, Karissa, Sablewolf with Victoria and Amalya

1) OUR THEME:

As we move into the second harvest Sabbat of Mabon, we will be exploring what is DARK and LIGHT within ourselves.  Mabon, also known as the Autumn Equinox, encourages us to find balance in the same way as the earth, sky, and seasons. As the light descends and darkness rises, the spooky "shadows" in our lives begin to unfurl! 

 

This time in the season calls for “shadow work” – transmuting the ways we “keep ourselves in the dark” and reflecting on the “light lessons” these shadows can teach us!  Working through our shadows involves examining our choices and beliefs and how they align (or don’t!) with our values and purpose. When we harvest the kernels of our shadow messages, we bring their wisdom to light.

 

We will get creative to construct ritual tools (a scythe and scroll) to name our shadows, cut through them, and accept the blessings of light that they bring!  We’ll be descending into the Underworld to visit with Demeter and Persephone during a magickal and dynamic ceremony – Come and receive messages of light from the Dark Goddesses! What shadow wisdom will YOU harvest this Mabon, and what light blessings will YOU reap?

2) CRAFT: WHAT WE WILL BE DOING:

We will be crafting a symbolic "Sickle" tool to harvest our Shadow Messages and a Scroll to journal their messages of wisdom.

3) REGARDING FOOD:  We will be having a POTLUCK!  Please bring a main dish or side salad to share with all.

Your RSVP is taken very seriously. These events mean alot to us and we devote significant time, energy and money to producing these high quality and meaningful gatherings eight times a year. Unfortunately, due to the rising number of people who RSVP "yes" and then don't show, we have been overbuying supplies and not able to cover our costs. "No shows" are very hard on us, not only financially, but emotionally and energetically as well. If you cannot come after you have rsvp'd "yes", then please simply change your rsvp to "NO" as soon as possible. Also, if you are bringing a guest, please let us know their names too! Thank you for honoring your commitment with integrity, your Goddess Mamas really appreciate it.
