Winter Greetings Dear Ones,
The Wheel of the Year is approaching the Winter Solstice. It is a time for us to take a breath, a moment to reflect upon the intense experiences we have gone through in the past several months. Change is afoot in so many aspects of our world. It leaves us bewildered, confused, and even frightened at times. One of the things that can sustain us during times of great upheaval and transformation are the bonds that we have formed with those we care about, our chosen spiritual family.
One of the central concepts behind Sacred Well is to help keep our community connected, to forge relationships that allow us to work together, support each other and share knowledge and resources with one another. How we go about doing this right now looks a lot different than what we have done in the past. Though we miss the experience of in-person celebrations, our virtual gatherings have been helping us to fill that void to some degree. Hopefully if we all do what we must now, we will be able to be together again in the not-too-distant future.
We may fumble through the technological aspects` of it from time to time, but the learning curve is improving! Several different people have hosted virtual celebrations, and if this is something that you would like to involved in, please let us know. We would love to get more people involved and have a wider variety of offerings throughout the coming year.
Other things that have worked out well are the simultaneous spellwork groups for a common cause. It has proved to be a powerful way to combine our energies and direct them in a unified effort. We would really like to see more of that type of cooperative action. Do you have ideas for something along those lines? Let us hear about it, and maybe put something together for people who want to participate.
And also know, Dear Ones, that you are loved and supported whether you are able to engage right now or if things just seem like too much. Winter Solstice is the time to go within – to nurture yourself, give your spirit time to heal and regenerate itself. Let yourself just be, with no expectation or judgement. We will be here for you.
With Love & Blessings,
Rev. Kathi Bonnabel
