Sagittarius New Moon of Truth

Ra Ma

This morning at 2:20 am we welcomed the final New Moon of the year of 2018.  The Moon and Sun finally met up together in Jupiter's home of Sagittarius offering us the great gift of expansion and growth.  Jupiter wishes to widen where Sagittarius lives in your chart, and the growth is all about the soul ascending beyond the material world.  Sagittarius brings wild adventurous horse energy, the expansive gypsy one who traverses through higher wisdom and knowledge.  

That being said, this is an important time to anchor to the Great Mother, to your Ancestors, to the Medicine that lives in your bones, as we are in the Dark Sun of the Wheel of the Year.  We are still in the Samhain portal and are making our way towards Yule, a great rebirth.  

This New Moon also welcomes a grand water trine as the North Node is in Cancer, Mercury is in Scorpio and Chiron is in Pisces.  There are many, oh so many feelings to be felt.  This is a beautiful time to find the music to match your mood.  Allow the waves of emotions to move through your body through dance, tears, or whatever it takes to experience and healthfully clear the feelings.  So many of us hold the emotions in and then later in life we are so full and repressed that illness sets in.  Our human emotions are absolutely beautiful and a gift.  

For those of you interested in crafting New Moon intentions, considering themes around a quest for Truth, spirituality and meditation, nature, faith, higher education and foreign travel.  Perhaps part of what you are seeding with this New Moon is about that which you are truly ready to let go of.  Sometimes a great sacrifice is needed to receive immense gifts from the Otherworld.  Many of us are shedding our snake skins.  The karmic completion degree of Uranus in Aries at 29° is still being activated at this New Moon, carving out a space for us to examine where in our lives endings need to be allowed, where the unresolved issues need to be faced, and met.  

Today in class I felt called to share how some sort of daily practice is absolutely essential in these times.  (If you need help navigating a daily practice, send me an email).  The astrology of 2019 is deeply purifying with the Saturn and Pluto conjunctions.  We need an anchor in this wild times.  The North Node in Cancer is asking each one of us to create sanctuary wherever we may roam, to call in our soul tribe, and to commit to creating a strong and true sense of inner security. 

May you navigate these times with ease and grace.  Sagittarian New Moon blessings.

karmic completion

Ra Ma

The Snake Goddess is a version of the Primordial Goddess that can be found from many cultures across Earth, including Ancient Egypt and India.  I deepened my connection with her in college when I met the Paleolithic Goddesses of Ancient Europe.  The snake and the spiral are seen as one and the same in the art of Old Europe dating back to 5000 BCE.  

Snakes conjure up vitality, rejuvenation, mastery of Kundalini, the ability to face death and walk through the fire into rebirth.  The Snake Goddess is a mistress of sacred waters. Much like the dragon, the Snake Goddess rules over life giving waters and moves through a meander of etheric labyrinths.  Here you will find a clay sculpture I made in homage to her back in 2002, and Judy Chicago's place setting for her in The Dinner Party.

We are in the midst of major karmic completion during these times. The astrology has written it all over the stars. Today Venus (who is fresh from her 40+ day rebirth) opposes Uranus at his degree of karmic completion of a cycle we began back in 2011. This dynamic is pushing us to grow with the Nodes of Fate, fresh on the Cancer and Capricorn axis.  These Nodes of Fate are directing each one of us to a completion of a cycle that began around 2000-2001. Essentially we are all in a time of dramatic shifts and a major crossroad. The choices we make will greatly affect our life paths.

Clearly, this is a major time to level up.  2018 is a Nature year of observing what needs to shift, what needs to transform. And 2019 is the year to rewrite your story and anchor the transformation into a new reality on Earth.

Next Thursday we will gather in my temple living room on the Dark Moon of the Dark Moon phase of the year in honor of the Sagittarius New Moon to come. We are in the dark of the dark as we seek the highest Truth and wisdom. Clarity and insight may be found when we sit in stillness and mystery. All who identify as woman are invited to join us in a circle of sacred sisterhood as we share cosmic insights, council, meditation and sound healing.

We may lean on the medicine of the Snake Goddess in these times. There is something that has come to full completion in your life that is ready to be shed. Now is the time to strip away the layers to step even more fully into your own unique and authentic medicine.  Your sacrifice, your offering will open the way to greater gifts.  We need your medicine now more than ever.

Ra Ma

☥ Beaver Gemini Full Lunation ☥

Ra Ma

Gemini Full Moon blessings to you on this day of infinite possibilities.  The Full Moon occurs on this Friday, 11/23 at 12:39 am EST, just after the Sun has entered Sagittarius.  This is a unique Full Moon because the Sun is about to catch up to Jupiter in Sagittarius. 

Remember when Jupiter entered Sagittarius just two weeks ago?  Well moving forward for the next 11 months, all that we are creating, expanding and growing into will be magnificently magnified.  These are potent times of support in all the ways we are seeking evolution.  However we are still in the death portal of the Wheel of the Year, meaning that this is the prime time for shedding and letting go. 

The Gemini Sagittarius axis is all about information, ideas, communication, higher mind, truth and authenticity.  Therefore this lunation is an important time to get clear in your thoughts and communication, particularly with your own inner dialog.  And this is a ripe opportunity for healing with the Sun and Jupiter trining Chiron in Pisces.  May you take a moment during this moon phase to witness how far you have come on your healing journey in 2018.  This has been a mighty year.  

As we are just culminating the American holiday of Thanksgiving, I wish to honor all of the Native Americans who are the true wisdomkeepers and stewards of this soil.  The reality is that many of our First Nation sisters and brothers still suffer, and for them this national holiday is a day of mourning.  So many tribal Native American teachings are based on loving and tending to Mother Earth.  I believe we won't have true peace, harmony and equality in this country until we are willing to face the brutalities of American history and offer apologies to those who have been harmed.   This Beaver Moon is a beautiful time to question how you think, what you think, and how you communicate personally and collectively.

Today I launch a new class at West Asheville Yoga studio from 8:45-10 am on Fridays.  I invite you to join us to receive the transmissions of this Full Moon with deep meditation and a long gong.  I am taking over Sierra's class slot and wish for you to know that she will be announcing a new evening class in the coming weeks at WAY, so please stay tuned. 

As we are still in the depths of the Underworld and letting go, I wish to share with you one of my greatest allies, Great Grandmother Hematite.  This hematite medicine has truly been my anchor for a number of years now.  If you have experienced any of my women's ceremonies or pilgrimages, you have met her too, most likely in the form of a tonic or guided meditation.  She is grounding, compassionate and nurtures us in all the ways we have been abandoned or isolated.  Scroll down to learn more, or visit this link.  May she nourish you during these times.  

a Rebirth and a Descent

Ra Ma

As many of you know, today Venus goes direct while Mercury stations retrograde.  This is very much like the myth of Inanna where her lover Dumuzi takes her place in the Underworld upon her great Return.  Mercury travels to the Underworld with the greatest frequency of all the planets in our solar system, symbolically offering us times of reflection, of renewal and of rebirth around our thoughts, our ideas, our ways of communication, teaching us how to navigate the realms of Spirit and matter.  

For many of us, Venus retrograde has carved out a space in our lives for a great descent to review our self worth relationship.  Wherever the late degrees of Libra and early degrees of Scorpio are in your chart is where you emerging from a major rebirth.  Personally I have received renewal in my first house, signifying my relationship to self, my identity, and my I am presence.  I spent half of the retrograde in Egypt, a land that has called my soul for many, many years, which set the stage for an impactful experience.  I knew I would have a deep journey, however what shifted and awoke inside of me was far beyond that which I would have expected.

And that is how these immense periods of renaissance can be.  A few weeks ago, I was at the French Broad River giving offerings with my mother and she asked, 'When will this intense astrology let up?'.  This is a question I hear quite often from students, friends and neighbors.  I replied that in reality this is the new normal.  

Whether conscious of it or not, we are all going through such deep transition on the planet.  We are witnessing the death of old paradigms that have burdened humanity and our Earth.  And we are witnessing the rise of new consciousness woven with the ways of the Ancients that will activate and inspire a new wave of living in harmony.  However to arrive at this place requires much dedication, determination, the ability to sit with all that is uncomfortable, to face the shadows within and integrate the hidden spaces that wish to come forward.  This is major work!  And we are together, in the cauldron of transformation.  Community and communion is the way through.

As of yesterday, the Nodes of fate have just shifted their axis from the Leo/Aquarius axis to the Cancer/Capricorn axis.  Collectively we are working towards opening up and experiencing deep feelings of nurturing, to face the sensitive issues, to go dive into the watery realms of the subconscious while honoring the hearth and the home.  

When Jupiter leapt into Sagittarius last week, I offered you one of my favorite meditations, Gyan Chakra Kriya to help support these times.  Many of you have begun the practice and are finding great strength in it.  Please share your success stories and feedback with me!  And you are encouraged to join us if you feel the call. 

In honor of Venus's rebirth, I leave you with a poem written to Hathor in the Temple of Dendera.  Hathor is an Egyptian goddess who very much carries the Venusian threads of consciousness in her mythology.

Hymn to Hathor in the Temple of Dendera
translated by Miriam Lichtheim

The King, Pharaoh, comes to dance, 
He comes to sing;
Mistress, see the dancing, 
Wife of Horus, see the skipping!

He offers it to you,
This jug;
Mistress, see the dancing,
Wife of Horus, see the skipping!

His heart is straight, his inmost open,
No darkness is in his breast;
Mistress, see the dancing,
Wife of Horus, see the skipping!  . . .

O beauteous one, O cow, O great one,
O great magician, O splendid lady, O queen of gods!
The King reveres you, Pharaoh, give that he live!
O queen of gods, he reveres you, give that he live!

Behold him, Hathor, mistress, from heaven, 
See him, Hathor, mistress from lightland, 
Hear him, flaming one, from ocean!
Behold him, queen of gods, from sky, from earth,
From Nubia, from Libya, from Manu, from Bakhu, 
From each land, from each place, where your majesty shines!

Behold what is in his inmost, 
Though his mouth speaks not;
His heart is straight, his inmost open,
No darkness is in his breast! 
He reveres you, O queen of gods, 
Give that he live!  . . . 

He comes to dance,
He comes to sing!
His bag is of rushes,
His basket of reeds,
His sistrum of gold,
His necklace of malachite.

His feet hurry to the mistress of music, 
He dances for her, she loves his doing!

Gyan Chakra Kriya

Ra Ma

As of November 7, 2018 Jupiter is transiting its home sign of Sagittarius. As a gift for all the opportunities that are ripe to pour forth, I invite you to join me on a special sadhana with a meditation called Gyan Chakra Kriya. This meditation is known as the most sacred kriya of the yogis.  I have created two videos to assist you in this journey.  The first is an introduction to explain in depth why this meditation will assist you and the second is the practice. 

This meditation will brighten your halo and build your aura to an effortless state of prosperity, while also strengthening the heart, joints and intuitive abilities.  As Yogi Bhajan, the Kundalini master who brought this technology to the West stated, “This will get for you all what you need in the planet and what your longitude and latitude. You will have altitude and attitude of prosperity. Height. It will give you height. And you will see better, you can see bigger, you can think bigger, you can think best. All will come to you.”

I began this meditation in the early Spring of 2015 and committed to the practice for 16 months. As we are culminating this powerful year of an 11 which nudging each one of us to fully embody our mastery, I am inspired to pick this meditation back up. I began with the Scorpio New Moon on Lunar and Solar Samhain and am committing to 1000 days. We are taught in Kundalini technology that when one practices for 1000 days straight you master the the consciousness of the kriya and it is always available to serve you when needed. Perhaps you’ll join me? I encourage you to commit to 40 days. Then perhaps you will wish to continue on for another 40? Feel free to let me know if you are in, and email satnam@ramakaur.com if you would like the write up, the music or any other support!

Infinite blessings,

Ra Ma

 

a Jupiter expansion gift for you 🏹

Ra Ma

Welcome to another weekly offering of the Venusian Love Notes.  We entered a deep portal of death and letting go this Wednesday and from what I am observing, it seems as if we are all feeling it.  I am currently in my local tea shop writing as my internet went out at home this morning.  I can hear conversations of overwhelm and intensity all around me,, and everyone is speaking of their feelings.  We are in the watery abyss of Scorpio season and it is the time of year for reflection and revelation from the swamp within.  

Wednesday was both Lunar and Solar Samhain when we welcomed the Scorpio lunation which will impact us all for the remaining 26 days of this cycle.  In the Northern Hemisphere we are in the season of Fall.  Energetically this is a major time of letting go, shedding and endings.  Healthy endings are essential for new beginnings.  That is the true beauty of this time of year.  

This time of year is associated with the dark goddess, whom became demonized in the Middle Ages.  Hag was once known as a holy woman, a wise woman, a healer, a shamanic traveler of time and space, a shapeshifter.  Darkness is the place of true fertility, of the primordial waters, the beginning of creation and life.  Womb and tomb are the way of life.  

Within this depth portal, where are you dying?  Where do the edges of your shadows meet the light?  What are you sacrificing?  Where are you lying in rest, in stillness?

Yesterday Jupiter shifted from the 29th degree of completion in Scorpio to the beginning of Sagittarius.  This is a major shift for all of us in our personal and collective lives.  The Venus retrograde we are still experiencing is clearing out space for each one of us to receive that which is truly meaningful for our paths at this time. 

The largest planet in our solar system has entered his home sign of Sagittarius.  Jupiter offers the wisdom of how the soul may ascend beyond the material plane.  This planet of spirituality assists one to grow beyond their perceived limitations, teaching that as we expand, we bring in success, wealth, higher concepts and greater creativity.  Jupiter in Sagittarius wishes to grow the realms of teaching, higher learning, beliefs, foreign travel and languages.  And the way to do all of this is through the Highest Truth.  

As a gift for this next year ahead, I invite you to join me on a special sadhana with a meditation called Gyan Chakra Kriya, also known as the most sacred kriya of the yogis.  I have created two videos to assist you in this journey.  One is an introduction to explain in depth why this meditation will assist you and you may find the link here.  Dive right into the practice at this link

This meditation will brighten your halo and build your aura to an effortless state of prosperity, while also strengthening the heart, joints and intuitive abilities.  As Yogi Bhajan stated, “This will get for you all what you need in the planet and what your longitude and latitude. You will have altitude and attitude of prosperity. Height. It will give you height. And you will see better, you can see bigger, you can think bigger, you can think best. All will come to you.”

On this first full day of Jupiter in Sagittarius, I drew Joan of Arc in divination. I believe that she steps forward to remind each one of us to always speak our highest Truth. To live our lives with our authentic pulse.   The cosmos are aligning with Jupiter in Sagittarius to empower each one of us to fully embody this sovereign energy.  Mother Earth needs you to. Your lineage needs you to. We need you to too.

Pulling back the veils of the Otherworld

Ra Ma

  Pulling back the veils of the Otherworld ::: a Call to you from the Queen's Chamber of Khufu, the Great Pyramid

Pulling back the veils of the Otherworld ::: a Call to you from the Queen's Chamber of Khufu, the Great Pyramid

The Festival of Remembrance is fully upon us.  We have pulled back the veils of the Otherworld as we are in the midst of a most potent Samhain portal, which is actually exact next Wednesday, November 7th when we welcome both Solar and Lunar Samhain, an epic marriage of great shedding and completion.  In addition to a most potent New Moon next Wednesday we have epic astrology happening next week.  Uranus also slides back into Aries, Jupiter leaps into Sagittarius and the Nodes of Fate shift from the Leo-Aquarius axis to the Cancer-Capricorn axis.  These are absolutely massive changes to our collective consciousnesses and personal lives.  

This time of the year is the Dark of the Moon, Hallow's Eve, All Soul's Night, the Festival of Remembrance, and also known as Samhain. This is the Ending and the Beginning of the Celtic Wheel of the Year.

This is ancestor time. Our lineage is yearning for us to call to them, as they are the bridge between Spirit and Matter. This time of magick and mystery is when the veil between the seen and the unseen realms becomes so thin, that our ability to travel beyond time and space is much more available.

The Dark has been demonized as a means of control to keep us from accessing our power. When we shut off these abilities we actually shut off our ability to know our true light. We can find many facets of the Dark Goddess in various traditions including Hecate, Sekhmet, Blodeuwedd, Cerridwen, Kali, the Erinyes, Sedna, Nephthys, the Black Madonna and many, many more. Fear not these dark Mothers, as they assist us with traveling deep into the abyss of Self and Psyche. All of Creation is born from the Dark. The Dark is fertility and purity of consciousness.

As a woman with Black Moon Lilith conjunct my ascendant and Pluto in my first house I know in my bones and blood much about what it means to carry the Dark Goddess with you wherever you go. Until the 36th year of my life I deeply struggled with what it meant to carry the Dark Goddess with you when you are in essence so bright and Light. It was a heavy, heavy burden. The powers of the Dark have such a high resonance of bullshit detector that it makes it hard to be in relation with others because you know every. single. time. one. lies. You feel the purity or lack of purity in others intentions. However, as I have made peace with the Dark Goddess and surrendered into her, I have found that my strength is with her. No one will ever take that away.

The Otherworld is calling for us to claim our sovereignty during these times. We are shaken awake as humanity to face the reality that these times we live in are far too important to slumber. Build your ancestor altars today. Call to your allies from the Otherworld. Cast your protection circles. Pray for your descendants. Give gratitude to Mother Earth.

For extra support during these times, I urge you to join me and a fabulous group of heart centered of all who identify as women (womxn) next Tuesday in my temple living room from 5:30-8:30 pm on the Dark Moon of the Dark Moon of the year!  We are calling forth the rich tapestry of the Underworld weavings into our lives as we sit in sacred space with one another in preparation for Solar and Lunar Samhain.  This is not to be missed!  You may secure your space here.  

And please come out with a warm Appalachian welcome to celebrate life and sing along with the creative, brilliant and joyful songstress Jai Jagdeesh on Monday, November 5th at 7:30 pm.  You may scoop up your ticket here.  We are going to have so much fun!  Also, I am always available for private sessions.  You may learn more about my offerings here.

Calling Upon the Ancients

Calling upon the Ancients
a prayer by Ra Ma

Oh great ancient Ones
We call to you!
Hear the voices of your descendants traversing through time and space.
We humbly ask for your support, your wise medicine ways, and your genius solutions during these times.

We, the humanity of Mother Earth are in crisis in these times. We are shedding old, outworn dominator paradigms while calling in fresh, loving and holistic ways to live in harmony with our planet, with all of nature, with the elements, and with our sisters and brothers.

The truth is, we need your help. We need the assistance of our Ancestors. We cannot do this alone. As the veil to the Otherworld is thin, we know you hear our Call.

We humbly bow as we stand upon your shoulders, and we ask that in the name of this beautiful Earth and the human spirit that together, we may make manifest a new consciousness that is one of service, integrity, devotion, creativity, kindness, justice, respect, intelligence, honor, praise, play, authenticity, diversity, health, wealth, and plenty for all.

Together may we weave this world with the guidance of your primordial wisdom. And so it is. Aho. Ase. Amen. Blessed be.

Venus's Rebirth

Ra Ma

Venusian Day blessings from ancestor land. I’m deep in ritual in honor of my lineage, and hope that perhaps this may be inspiration for you to find ways to honor your lineage. We are officially in ancestor season and the veil to the Otherworld is thin, offering insights and inspiration from our beloved departed ones. 

Today is particularly special as Venus and the Sun conjunct. As you most likely know by now, Venus is retrograde, which began 3 Fridays ago.  Her retrograde lasts about 40 days and 40 nights. During the exact retrograde station I was with 8 other powerful womxn in the Middle pyramid in the Land of Kemet.  This activation continues to live through me. During that time so many of us both consciously and unconsciously let things die that no longer serve. 

Today Venus is reborn. She is renewed. She begins a new 8 year cycle in her retrograde station in the sign of Scorpio. You too are rebirthed and you may look to the place in your chart where 2-3 degrees Scorpio lies to gain deeper insights. You may also journey back to 8 years ago to see what you began then.  For me, 8 years ago I was entering my third trimester of pregnancy.  Now, I am birthing a whole new identity and relation to self.  This is powerful and there is great clarity available. 

Today’s alignment offers us an opportunity to put to use the intense work of clearing and stripping away that so many of us have been doing since May of this year. The old, outworn paradigms that you were given in your childhood may be buried and composted in the dirt.  Like the phoenix, your consciousness may rise from the ashes.

I invite those of you who are local to join me in welcoming the amazing songstress Jai Jagdeesh to our Appalachian community Monday, November 5.  If you scroll to the bottom of this love note you’ll see the link to sign up. And all who identify as womxn are welcome to gather in my temple living room on the Dark Moon in honor of the Scorpio New Moon, Tuesday November you may sign up below. 

May this Venus retrograde bestow infinite blessings upon you and yours.  May your journey through the Underworld be filled with good medicine for you and your lineage. 

In the beauty way,
Ra Ma

Venus’s descent 🐍✨

Ra Ma

Venusian Day blessings from the plateau of Giza. I am on pilgrimage with a special group of women and this journey is potent.  There are so many layers of experience and timelines happening here. 

As I am traveling, I am thinking of my family, my community, our humanity and our Earth right now.  It is clear this is an intense time to be human.  The keep up spirit is what is needed now more than ever.  And our authentic expression to life is also needed.  We are deep in the midst of Sekhmet territory, and I personally am learning how important our fierce emotions, healthy rage and boundaries are.  Humanity needs to hear your voice, thoughts, feelings now more than ever. 

Venus has officially descended into the Underworld, where she will dance her sacred union with the dark for about 40 days and 40 nights. She is currently at 10 degrees Scorpio and stationed retrograde at 7:04 pm GMT.  As I shared last week, all relationships and partnerships are currently up for review. The most pressing inquiry is our relationship to Self, our self care, our self worth, our self knowledge. 

As we heal within, so we heal beyond. We are a microcosm of the macrocosm.  Venus turns direct November 16th at 10:51 am GMT 25 degrees Libra.  May each one of us shed that which no longer serves during her Underworld journey. 

We spent this Venus retrograde station in private ceremony in the Middle pyramid in private ceremony, linked up to the cosmos in stellar harmony. Our prayer was a prayer for humanity. May it be a blessing for you and yours. May you die a thousand deaths, to be reborn, again and again.

In the beauty way,
Ra Ma


Venus on my mind. . .

Ra Ma

Venusian Day blessings beauties!  This week has been intense.  Deep within the belly of the beast of patriarchy, there is a fierce call that WE will no longer accept the status quo.  As we have witnessed Dr. Ford stand up to a boardroom of dying dinosaurs, we have all felt an array of emotions for our sisters and selves as the age old traumas resurface.  

The #metoo campaign emerged with Jupiter entering Scorpio and now as Venus in Scorpio is in the shadow of her retrograde we are collectively witnessing the Truth that needs to be heard. 

As a community we are journeying through the eye of the needle.  The spaces where power and control have been abused, where whole genders (and those who defy gender), races, classes and religions of humanity have been traumatized are in a deep process of transformation.  Before the beauty and the magic may emerge, we must witness fully the rage and the ugliness of how others have suffered.  We must allow justice to be born through our courage to resist collapse within.  

I wish to be clear about something, although most of my readers are womxn, including all who identify as woman, these weekly love notes are truly for everyone.  She is We, and I, like so many of my sisters who call to the Divine Feminine hold a vision of a world where the feminine is truly honored, where all are welcomed to sit at the table of plenty.

I will be traveling for the first few weeks of October and have some stellar subs holding down my Kundalini Yoga classes.  This Sunday Daya Narayan will be teaching and she wishes to share this message with those who are called to join, 'Sunday afternoon is a time that calls us to travel inward as we prepare for another week.  Come together with other beautiful women for inner calm, healing, strength, and beauty as we do the Kriya to Make You Enchantingly Beautiful and Meditation for Healing.'

Venus officially retrogrades October 5th at 7:04 pm GMT and will go direct November 16th at 10:51 am GMT.  All relationships, partnerships, including our relationship and value of self are up for review.  This Venus retrograde is asking us to deeply question our values on a personal and collective level.  What do we buy into with our time and energy?  What culture are we creating with this investment?  

The exact moment of the station of Venus retrograde, on October 5th a Friday, the day of Venus, I will be gathered with 8 other priestesses in private ceremony at the middle pyramid of Giza in Egypt.  There are so many mysteries spoken of the sacred lands of Egypt, however what is most clear is that Egypt is an energetic beacon for our Earth, for Gaia. 

Although I am going on a personal pilgrimage, meaning I am receiving while others hold the container, I do feel that part of my work is to be in service to my community from afar.  To be in the middle pyramid of Giza during such a powerful and important energetic portal of 2018 is an honor.  If you wish for my presence to be a channel for your prayers or healing requests during this Venus station, I offer to bring forth your intentions at the Middle Pyramid of Giza.  Please email me and I will hold the frequency for you and your lineage.  These messages will remain confidential.

The vision of the Adi Shakti Coven came forth in the Spring of 2017 as a way a rock solid community of womxn, free of hierarchy, where we could come together in honor of our ancestors, the medicine of the Earth, the seasons, the lunar and solar patterns, the cosmic starry wisdom and the pantheon of goddesses who represent the Divine Feminine.  I was terrified to launch this offering.  No matter how much self healing one may have committed to, we may all go through the internal dialog of 'not enough'.  However, I knew in my womb and heart that this had to be birthed by the end of 2017.  And so it was. 

Our first spiral was immensely powerful and this community has taken a life of it's own.  Our second spiral begins Monday, October 1st and we invite you to join us if the Call is pulling you.  You may learn more here.  Applications are due no later than September 30th.  

I leave you with a new podcast on Unbroken Chain hosted by Maura McNamara.  We had a beautiful discussion and I hope you find nourishment and inspiration in our exchange. 

In the beauty way,

Ra Ma
