Welcome to a world of ritual and celebration, most importantly a world of magick. The year is divided into eight main holy days or Sabbats. Four of these are associated directly with the two equinoxes and the two solstices. The other four fall at dates in between these points.
The Eight Sabbats or Festivals, celebrate the changing seasons in the Cycle of Life. Our ancient ancestors relied on the movements of the Sun and Moon mainly to guide them. These holy days are not created as a result of some historic event, which we identify as holidays; they are of nature. Once a year, we have a night that is the longest night of the year, accompanied by the shortest day. When the hours between sundown and sunup are the greatest, and the hours between sunup and sundown are least. And we call this time the “winter solstice”. Exactly opposite on the wheel of the year, we have, the longest day of the year, and the shortest night, which we call the “summer solstice”.
Each spring, there comes a day when the hours between sunrise and sunset are exactly equal to the hours between sunset and sunrise. And we call this the “spring equinox”. Likewise, there comes a day each fall when the hours of darkness and the hours of daylight are exactly in balance. And we call this the “autumn equinox”. These are powerful days of awakening, enlightenment and healing, because these four times of year are simply a part of how this planet works.
Megalithic sites such as Stonehenge, for example, have clear alignments to both the summer and winter solstice, and the spring and autumn equinox. These temples of worship constructed to honor these specific times of year can be found the world over: from the pyramids of ancient Egypt to the ancient temples of China; from the cliff dwellings of the Anasazi of North America, to the temples of Peru. The two solstices and two equinoxes are the oldest holy days known to mankind, they are not connected to any particular religion, they are universal and date back far longer than any established religion on the planet. They belong to all of us and thus should be honored, respected and celebrated. They are a key to restoring oneness in our modern world. We are so busy with the hustle and stress of our lives that we lose that balance that comes when we are in harmony with nature.
It is my vision and guidance to create transformational experiences to share with you the teachings of the First Nation people and the rituals of celebration from all corners of the world. We are citizens of the earth and must respect the ancient ways of our ancestors if we are to move forward. We must remember who we are and why we have come at this most magnificent time in the earth’s evolution and to join together with individuals of a spiritual mind to celebrate life and to pray for peace and unity. We will be celebrating these Holy Days whenever possible, so check back with us monthly to see what special events are planned. We have some very exciting experiences planned that will truly change your life and assist you in stepping into your destiny.
