Inspired Gardening at Lammas (and all year long)

Celebrate Lammas by exploring sacred gardening ideas with Sacred Actions author Dana O’Driscoll Many of us celebrate Lammas (or Lughnasadh) this week on Sunday, August 1st, the nearest full moon to July 31st.

Healing Through Writing

by Donna DeNomme, author of the Nautilus, Benjamin Franklin, and COVR award-winning book As You Feel, So You Heal: A Write of Passage. “I can’t write,” Sheila said. “No worries,” I answered, “This isn’t about your writing skills.

They just think about the stirring questions, contemplate the meditative practices, and let the inspirational information just sit with them.” Let…

Having a Happy & Healthy Litha

by TJ Perkins, author of The Healthy Witch: A Workbook for Optimal Health and Four Little Witches.

Litha is also a time to burn your old magicks and release the final burst of energy to the Cosmos. Rejoice…
