The Weekly 10/28/2022

“Living here on Earth, we breathe the rhythms of a universe that extends infinitely above us. When resonant harmonies arise between this vast outer cosmos and the inner human cosmos, poetry is born.”

Join youth and mindfulness expert, Jessa, who will offer a separate space for kids ages 5-11 to move, play, craft, sing, and find ways to deepen their connection to themselves, their bodies, to nature, and one another. Ideal for any parent or caregiver participating in yoga in the Sanctuary but needing childcare to do so. For both, donations are gratefully accepted, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

a poem by: Chanticleer
The drums of Samhain keeping time.
The gates of magic open wide.
A cauldron’s blessings overflow.The candle flames are dying low.

The witches dance the circle ’round
to chant and bring the power down.

Hecate will hear our call
to turn the summer into fall.

The magic veil is growing thin.

The Netherworld is near our own.

We’ll see the sacred fire fed
while witches commune with the dead.

The winds of Autumn call our names.

The driving rhythm slowly calms.

The glowing embers we will tend
until the drums of Samhain end.
