  • A Celebration of Samhain
  • Listen:
  • "Now is the Night of November Eve, as the Samhain rites begin.

    Spirits step from the World Beyond, this night when the Veil is thin.

    Coming through the Land of Shadows, awakening from the World of Dreams,
    joining hands with the Children of Midnight as the Moonlight Lantern gleams.

    Drifting in the Wind of Evening, Chanting words in an ancient tongue,
    dancing light to the music of Fearies, as the Sacred Prayer is sung.

    We honor this In-Between time, this space between Darkness and Light,
    While greeting the Reign of the Winter King,
    On this Windy Autumn Night."

    Blessed Samhain

  • The Stars of Autumn
  • Listen:
  • This week here on The Spiral Dance, let's look skyward and see what's up there.

    Every season brings different views of the Heavens, and Autumn is no different. And, the Stars of Autumn bring their own stories and myths. So to start this week, I have a poem written back in 1819 by the English Romantic poet, John Keats. In his poem, "To Autumn" he captures the feeling and spirit of this season.

    Then we'll talk a bit about Astronomy itself, and one view of how why people started making Constellations in their minds.

    Then I want to talk about the Real Stars of Autumn; The Great Square of Pegasus, Cassiopeia and Draco the Dragon.

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!

  • The Magick of Masking
  • Listen:
  • We all wear masks, although the extent to which we layer ourselves or are aware of them varies greatly.

    Masks are a familiar and vivid element in many folk and traditional pageants, ceremonies, rituals and festivals, and are often of an ancient origin.

    One reason for wearing a mask is to pretend to be someone or something else. The mask can be a kind of language that expresses the emotion of the figure one chooses to create.

    So, we'll talk about What masks do you wear and why? Then, The Mask of the Unified Self.

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
