Wheel of the Year: Mabon

The Wheel is turning. Once again we have come around to the end of summer and the autumn equinox or Mabon, the time when days and nights are equal in length and all is in balance. We give thought to the balance and flow within our own lives. It is the harvest, a time of great abundance on the earth, and a time to give thanks for all we have reaped and gathered.

In this traditional "Witches' Thanksgiving", we will look at the importance of gratitude / appreciation in manifesting abundance in our lives.

Please dress comfortably, and feel free to bring drums, rattles or other instruments, along with a journal for recording any insights received on your journey.

Doors open at 7:00 pm and close at 7:30 pm, and ends at 11:00 pm (ritual circles run a little longer than usual). Please RSVP to ensure your space. Suggested donation of $10.00 per person to cover the space rental. Come join us for this wonderful celebration!

We will be meeting in the Serena Room at Casa de Luz. Some backjacks, folding chairs, pillows and yoga blankets will be available. If possible, you might want to bring your own pillow or blanket to help make sure that you're comfy during the circle, especially if you plan to journey lying down on the floor. You might also want to bring a light wrap or sweater in case the AC is acting up! :) Several of us will be having dinner at 6 PM in Casa's restaurant, so feel free to join us for dinner before the circle! [Note:  Just a reminder that it is OK to park in the City of Austin lot across the street, even though "No Parking" signs are posted.  The City & Casa have an agreement for now, so you won't get towed.]

    Sorry for the late notice, had to stay a bit longer at work and it doesn't look like I'll be able to make it out there in time, especially in this weather.

    I am having a sagging ceiling in our bathroom, water dripping through the electric light fixture in there. Now I know why bathroom kitty has been pitching a fit most of the afternoon.

    I have to do some thing about the leaking roof and electric light fixture before going to work tonight so I am not going to be able to get out of here in time to make it to the circle. I hate to cancel last minute but I would hate even more to come home to a burned down house full of fried cats!!!!

      Tammy, we missed you, but I sure hope you were able to get your ceiling fixed! That's scary!!

    This meeting was an absolute treat, all the ladies were so lovely and so welcoming. I was completely blown away by how incredibly knowledgeable Toni was and I really appreciated how thoroughly she explained everything and such beautifully rich story telling! There was so much positive energy and the circle was run so smoothly and coherently that it was effortless to find myself in the right head space and heart space. I was also pleasantly surprised at how tolerant and diverse the group was, open to all religions and walks of life. I was grateful for the opportunity to hear others share their journeys, I hope to continue to learn from such a wonderful community.

    I almost canceled as I picked up a night shift that night but my shift doesn't start until 10:30pm - I looked up the location of the facility and it is only about four miles away but I will need to leave by 10:00pm to give myself time to get lost which I will because I always do . . . .

      Leaving early will be fine, Tammy! Good luck with your job!

    The RSVP situation has changed. It doesn't let you leave a note anymore. I changed my RSVP for Mabon. This is scheduled to be the busiest Fall equinox weekend I can remember so I will have to miss out on this one. Never fear though. I will definitely see you all for recapitulation. (Please forgive spelling errors)

    ok so I wanted to see what would happen if I tried to add a +1 to my rsvp. and... meet up bumped me down to the waiting list! :/ (i thought it would give me a chance to say yes/no I want to be on wait list.) well, now I know! (ps. i was/am adding a +1 so i can bring Kristen, Ella's mom who i love and who would benefit so much from our community.) Spirit willing, we'll both see you there.
