Listen. . .
With faint dry sound,
Like steps of passing ghosts,
The leaves, frost-crisp’d, break from the trees
~ Adelaide Crapsey
Samhain and Day of the Dead celebrations roll right into November. The veils are thin. Our Ancestors and Beloved Dead are around us and all time seems to be held in sway to the liminality of the worlds right now,. Soon the clamor and sparkle of the holidays will take over. and we still set a place at the table for the Ancestors to include them in our Thanksgiving and Yule celebrations.
Things are bustling and busy here at MotherHouse with lots of goodies, events, and courses available and coming up.
Goddess Alive Radio is back as a podcast and I have gorgeous upcoming interviews with Elizabeth Cunningham, Starr Goode, and Tosha Silver – check out the schedule here!
Our Seasonal Goddess Blessing Boxes made their super successful debut with the Dark Goddess Blessing Box for Samhain. We are busy curating the Wishes and Dreams Winter Goddess Blessing Box which will be available for order soon! Check out the feedback and teasers!
