Our life is governed by nature's rhythms, whether we are conscious of them or not. The rise and fall of the sun, the changing of the seasons, and the waxing and waning of the moon all exert their influence on us and the more we are able to align ourselves with these rhythms the more magic we can source from our daily lives. I have been working with seasonal and lunar rhythms for over twenty years now and I would love to take you on a journey through a full lunar cycle of Moon Magic so that I can share some of what I have learned with you. My hope is that this program would inspire you to cultivate your own personal lunar wisdom practices, inspired by the quality of attention you bring to the rhythms that play upon your body, mind, and heart.
How Does This Course Work?
Our journey will officially begin on the new moon of January 24th 2020 so you will want to sign up before that date so that you can use the new moon to prepare for the work we will be doing together. Our Moon Magic program will take us through five primary phases of the moon and with each of these a new lesson will be released.
These lessons include a mix of -
- a video presentation on the energetics of the current moon phase
- info about the symbols and archetypes related to that moon phase
- suggestions for personal practice & ritual for the current moon phase
- a short yoga or meditation practice to help you attune to the phase of the moon
- kitchen witching herbal recipes related to the current moon phase
- tarot spreads to support self inquiry
You will also be invited to join a private Facebook group where we can talk about what we are learning and practicing in between lessons. This is where you can ask me questions directly and connect with other students in the program. I will also hold live Q&A video sessions here throughout our month together.
Who is this course for?
Anyone who has an interest in learning more about lunar rhythms and wants to create personal practices that will support them in attuning to those rhythms in their daily life.
What will you learn?
I am going to share a number of different practices and teachings with you, what you take away from them will be unique to you. The teachings I share will be my own, inspired by my years of fascination with the topic of lunar rhythms and my personal relationship to them. The practices I share with you will be rooted in my own study & practice of yoga, meditation, journal writing, tarot and herbalism. I will offer you a variety of practices with each lesson so you may choose the ones that suit you best.
What is the primary focus of this course?
When I teach about Moon Magic my focus is on supporting you in beginning to notice the way that the waxing and waning rhythms of the moon affect you and how you can lean into this rhythm to enliven your own practices of creativity, personal intimacy, ritual and self care. I am NOT going to talk about how to use the lunar rhythms to manifest abundance or rock your business because that is not my interest or my practice. However, I hope that you will find that you can apply my teachings to any area of your life that interests you.
Why does Moon Magic matter?
There is so much about our current human-caused state of affairs on this planet that causes me grief and despair. I know I am not alone in this. Some days it is truly difficult for me to be hopeful about our future on this planet. The only thing that reliably offers me peace and hope is my connection to the natural world. There are many ways that I support this connection and lunar wisdom practices are one of those. This world is full of magic. Real magic. Moon magic is simply one doorway into that remembrance.
I am a woman who wears many hats. I identify as student, seeker, and storyteller, mother, mentor and magic maker. I have been teaching yoga and meditation since 2002 and love to support others on the path of self discovery through practices of personal ritual. My lifelong curiosity with nature's rhythms has led me to my studies in Ayurveda, Western herbalism, and various earth based wisdom traditions. I also bring a love of myth and story to my work as I have found symbolism to be a powerful teacher. This dance of seasonal reverence, yogic sadhana, mythic story, and kitchen medicine lie at the heart of all that I share.
