Blessings All,

It's hard to believe February is already winding down and spring beckons just around the corner! Although the year is still young, it has brought many changes with it and I look forward to the challenges these bring!

My schedule for the first half of the year is in place, and while we are still getting the second half ironed out, there are some potentially exciting locales that are a bit more far afield than I've been able to go these past few years. Between the new baby, some issues with my husband's health, and our imminent move out of NYC to Upstate New York, I've had to be somewhat conservative in my travels. I am looking forward to resuming a more varied presentation schedule once again, and especially to the next SOA Pilgrimage to Wales and Britain in 2009.

Until then, I hope to be able to connect with some of you at the following events. As always, blessings of transformation to you all!

Blessings all,

I have enjoyed my time here on LiveJournal, but have decided to change blogging venues. I will be setting up an RSS feed so I won't lose track of the lovely people I have met here on LJ, and I will continue to use this blog for announcements and the like, so please don't feel like you need to leave. With the new year, I have resolved to do more content blogging, and have set up shop here: http://www.ynysafallon.com/blog/ ; as you can see, it is linked through my website.

I have a lot of wonderful projects underway for 2008, and am very excited to share them with you. I will be using my new blog to discuss things relavent to those walking Avalonian and Welsh Celtic spiritual paths, as well as things having to do with Goddess Spirituality and women's issues in general. Too, I will be honoring women who are making a difference in Women's Spirituality in the here and now, and profiling woman artisans and creators throughout the year. I hope you will join me in these explorations, and I am looking forward to hearing your suggestions for inspirational women to feature in my Women of Spirit series. 

Please stop by or email me with your thoughts, recommendations and suggestions.

I wish everyone an abundant 2008, filled with love, joy, and transformation!

Bendithion Afallon,
Jhenah

I am pleased to share that my article "She Lives In My Heart: Sharing the Goddess Path With My Daughter" appears in the current issue of The Beltane Papers. Pick up an issue and let me know what you think!

This issue also features writings by and about Shekhinah Mountainwater, whose recent passing into the arms of the Mother has touched so many.

Please support this wonderful publication -- ask your local bookstores and metaphysical shops to carry it if they do not already, or purchase issues from their website. It is more than a magazine -- it's volunteer run by consensus, with deep connections to the beginnings of the Goddess Spirituality movement in the US.

Many thanks and blessings!

The Sisterhood of Avalon sponsors Training Intensives at various times and places throughout the year. Presented around the United States and Great Britain since 1998, these Intensives allow women to learn Avalonian ritual, techniques, tools and philosophy from an experiential perspective. Come to connect with the Goddesses of Avalon, and learn how to heal and empower yourself as you align with the Cycles of the Universe

The Level One Intensive is highly recommended for solitaries and women wishing to establish and facilitate SOA Learning Circles and Hearths.

We are pleased to announce that the Sisterhood of Avalon is presenting a Level One Intensive October 25 - 28, 2007 in Rensselaerville, NY, 25 miles southwest of Albany. The Intensive will be held at a retreat center on 120 acres of forest, streams, trails and natural beauty. There is an eight-acre lake and ponds abundant with growing things and wildlife, paths through old orchards and even older forests that hold promises and secrets of Self and Life.

The Intensive will run from Thursday through Sunday, and the price includes workshops, lodging, and all organic vegetarian meals. The SOA Level One Intensive is open to all women, members and non-members alike.

Detailed information packets and registration materials are available upon request. Space is limited. If you are interested in attending or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at intensives@ sisterhoodofavalon.org

SOA Intensives are always wonderful opportunities to become immersed in the work of Avalon and to build sacred community with sisters; we hope you will have an opportunity to attend.

Blessings All,
 
I am looking to collaborate on a few Avalonian projects with a graphic artist of professional quality. If you are one, or know of one, who might be interested, please contact me (Morgen at sisterhoodofavalon.org) with some samples of your work. Please forgive me if you have seen this posting more than once. I have been getting some amazing responses, but wanted to be sure to spread the word as wide as possible to see who is out there and interested before moving forward. If you have contacted me and haven't heard back, I will be in touch shortly.
 
I look forward to hearing from you!

Greetings All!
 
I am pleased to announce the general release of my latest project, in conjunction with the Sisterhood of Avalon and many talented sisters.
 
Trancing the Inner Landscape: Avalonian Landscape Postures DVD allows you to embark upon a Spiritual Pilgrimage to Sacred Sites in the Glastonbury landscape through a series of shamanic trance postures that emulate the unusual and alchemical features in the Avalonian countryside. Inspired by the work of Felicitas Goodman and her students, I developed this posture system in 2003. Along with background information and detailed instructions, the DVD features beautiful film footage and still photography of the landscape feature which inspired each posture. As a bonus,the DVD contains an audio track of trance drumming to accompany you on your journeys. It is truly a feast for the eyes, the body, and the spirit.
 
Best yet, the sale of this DVD helps support the Sacred Land Fund of the Sisterhood of Avalon, which is dedicated to the establishment of a Goddess-Centered Avalonian Community. 

View the trailer to Trancing the Inner Landscape here:
