Reflections on Rose Temple

2019-05-09T20:32:04+00:00

I always mean to take pics. Maybe with your inner eyes you can see: The altar is lovely, with flowers, stones and ephemera from sisters offering. A lovely new altar cloth initiated into use. Candles lit, waning sun streaming into our ruby library at the Balch Hotel. The heady scents of Rose and Spikenard oils. Eleven women entering the mystery, anointed at the goddess gateway, in various shades and degrees of goddess wear. The bashful and bold. A circle of sisters deep and engaged, hungry for a sense of the sacred, sharing connection, together. A mix of ages and backgrounds,

Sisterhood Supper Changes

2019-05-01T21:18:16+00:00

Sister, Some times things are moving so fast, I’m not sure what I’ve shared. But these changes I want you to know about. Sisterhood Supper was created as a space for open ended dialogue and connection among women. A chance to meet other women in our community, from near and far. It’s been great fun, for the most part.

A deep heady scent of Spikenard greeting each woman as she arrived to Temple Sophia. Anointed, one by one, women of various background, age and experience entered the circle. Inhaling deeply, relaxing fully, she found her seat in the garnet room and settled in to the journey. As thirteen of us began, sisters shared what brought them to the circle…. what their intentions for being there were. After all, there are many things begging for attention in our lives these days. And all of these women are teachers, healers and leaders in their own right, so what was calling them
