Greetings and Brightest Blessings Sisters 


Cooler nights, changing leaves, lessening sunlight... all beautiful signals that the season of retreat and going within has begun.  The third harvest festival gains momentum as we step in the month of October and draw closer to Samhain. 

We've now entered into a time when the veils thin and the realm of this year and the next blur.  It is in the month of October that we are given a "peek" into what we can expect to learn, experience and give birth to in the coming new year.  It is a time of seeing the "seed" that will be planted in the Womb of Winter, awaiting its birth in Spring.

So walk through this month with heart and mind open.  Be receptive to what presents itself and what choices are on offer that will become the pathway or journey of your next season once the turn of the wheel begins again ;-)

For Chrysalis Woman, this is our last month as we prepare to enter the Womb of Winter and rest from a season of circles, programs and workshops.  It is our time to celebrate yet another year of sisterhood, growth and Goddess bliss.  If you haven't had a chance to join us yet this year, now's your opportunity before we close our doors for the winter season and gestate in our own cauldron of creativity.  We'll re-open our doors in February of 2011 and begin again another turn of the Great Wheel with new Programs, Workshops and Circles.


For sisters who have traveled the 2010 year with us and would like a commemoration of the circles, magick and sisterhood, Chrysalis Woman is offering hard cloth covered 8x11 photobooks.  Twenty pages of photos from our season of Circles.  A beautiful keepsake and preservation of our dance with Goddess. 

Each keepsake book is $45 ($40 for sisters) and prepayment is required.  Simply click the link below to order your copy today.  Albums can be picked up at the October Circle.

Each month on the New Moon students receive via email a Study Packet on a particular Goddess.  They are led through a month long journey of learning Her Herstory, correspondences and culture.  They build an altar to Her, experience a meditation to meet Her and do art projects that have special significance.  Each student participates in the Goddess Studies egroup where they upload their altar pictures, share their research and discuss with other women how this particultar Goddess is revealing Herself in their life.  Each month's studies take one full lunation to complete. 

For women attending the CW Goddess Circles, these studies provide an opportunity to deepen your Circle experience by learning about and experiencing the Goddess who's energies will be called into Circle.
