Monday Night Meditations are Back

Resuming on Monday, 11 July 2016, these non-secular meditations will be held every Monday evening (except for public holidays) at The Goddess House (Parafield Gardens), from 7:30pm to 8:45pm.

Monday Night Meditations offer a great way to commence your working week with feelings of centredness, as well as being relaxed and focused.

Opening the Discussion about Death

Death.  Such a taboo subject in our Western culture yet a subject that really needs to be talked about more openly.  After all, death is a natural process that will happen to all of us at some stage.  It is something we are not able to avoid, no matter how hard we try.
In recent times, "Death Cafes" have started to be established as a means for people to gather together and discuss the concept of death over a cup of tea (or coffee) and a slice of cake.  The first Death Cafe took place in East London in September 2011 and since that time similar events have been held all around the world.

Learning to Ebb and Flow with the Seasons

The sky is low, the clouds are mean,
A travelling flake of snow
Across a barn or through a rut
Debates if it will go.
A narrow wind complains all day
How some one treated him;
Nature, like us, is sometimes caught
Without her diadem.
So wrote American 19th century poet Emily Dickinson and winter has certainly arrived at The Goddess House
With the changing energy levels of the season, not to mention the increasing reluctance to venture out on wet and wintry evenings, a decision has been made to postpone the Monday Night Meditations until Monday, 1 August, the festival of Imbolc on the seasonal calendar for the Southern Hemisphere which marks the commencement of Spring.

Exhortation of Isis

You are She in the dust of whose feet is the hosts of Heaven,
Whose body encircles the Universe,
Who turns the Earth in its orb,
Who gives light to the Sun,
Who rules the World.

You tread death underfoot.
To Thee, the stars are responsive,
To Thee the seasons turn and the Gods rejoice
And the elements are in subjugation.

You are She that is the natural Mother of all things,
Mistress and governor of all elements,
The initial progeny of worlds,
Chief of Divine powers,
Queen of Heaven,
Principle of all the Gods celestial and the light of Goddesses.

At Your will are disposed the planets of the air,
The wholesome winds of the seas
And the silences of the unseen world.
