  • Blessed Beltane
  • Listen:
  • This week, we celebrate Beltane! Beltane is happening on Tuesday, the first of May! It's a festival of Fertility and Love as we welcome the flowering of Nature's Return. In our mythology Beltane represents the Mating of the Goddess and the God. It's The Original White Wedding!
    So, we'll talk in more detail about the meaning and significance of May Day from our earliest history. Plus we'll talk about the mythologies and customs that are traditionally associated with Beltane. And, while we're at it; just what the heck does "Beltane" mean? I've got the answers right here!
    Beltane's importance goes deep into our history, and it was never actually snuffed out to the Church's satisfaction. It, in fact, followed the Euopeans to these very shores. I'll present to you a reading from the American writer, Nathanial Hawthorne. He wrote a story in 1836, which was a fictionalized account taken from early colonial history. It's called "The Maypole at Merrymount".
    Do good. Enjoy the show.

  • Inner Child / Outer Child
  • Listen:
  • This week, it's Kids' stuff here on The spiral Dance! Our theme is The Inner Child and the Outer Child.

    What does the Inner Child mean to you? Do you feel trustful toward your Inner Child?
    These are the sorts of questions we'll be examining in the first part of the show. And pretty soon we'll listen to a recorded guided meditation from Alan Cohen for connecting with your Inner Child. This is from his album, "Journey to the Center of the Heart", and the meditation is called "Beloved Child".

    Then, after we get our Inner Child straight, we'll discuss two issues for real kids:
    First, A Welcoming, Naming and Blessing Ritual for newborns, then A Comng of Age ritual to Adulthood for adolescents
