A circle of creative spirituality and ritual for women.
The September full moon rises on Thursday 19th
This is the date of our next gathering
Theme : Lilian Masediba Ngoyi
Last month we opened our mind’s eye to Ruth First, and in that spirit we shall do the same for Lilian Ngoyi and give some thought to Hildegard of Bingen and the night of balancing, and the significance of the Day of Atonement.
“Months are becoming shorter to bring November nearer me. I ask myself this question: will my banning order be lifted or will it be forgotten? Since 1961 I have lived with it. Maybe it will be renewed. If so, God give me the courage not to weaken.” (Lilian Ngoyi)
“In the youthful, ripening period of life, we come into complete flower. In old age, we are brought back to the period of fading, just as Earth in summer is adorned with flowers by its greening power and later transformed by the chill of winter’s pallor.” (Hildegard of Bingen)
Vernal Equinox – night of balancing: The dance of the seasons is moving toward a new moment. Spring stirs the body just as it stirs the sap of trees to rise. We are part of this world, however much we may sometimes feel disconnected from it. And within ourselves, each year, we live through the entire cycle of life.
Please bring: something that tells us that it is spring – a flower, herbs, a dance, a bulb, and share a story you may have of Lilian…
