What does it mean to be devoted? A devotee? A devotee of ____ (fill in the blank)… ? If you haven’t had the opportunity to connect with yourself, this will be your weekend. We’ll find the space to re-charge, to connect, to simply Be and Be In. This will be your time to listen to yourself without inner judgement, without inner dialogue, without analysis of why.

I think we all can agree that we’ve collectively experienced some very strange times in the last 24 months. I don’t know about you, but I’ve turned to a couple of mystics on the interwebs, seeking their thoughts about all the cray cray going on in this world, I’ve had some deep conversations with friends, family – even strangers. I’ve been trying to understand how things got to this point and I realized, I just don’t know. It’s times like this that we turn to clergy, to the wise, to some-one, or something to help make sense of things… and I realized – perhaps this is the way of things. It’s not fatalistic, it’s the way of Things. And one day, it struck me… the way of things… all things… no-things.. nothing… and even the day to day things… is to acknowledge the strange, and it has been strange, but it doesn’t mean “I” need to be strange, or estranged from it.

Once I stopped trying to make sense of it… I remembered what it felt like to be devoted to Love and Magick, I remembered the beauty and passion and desire… and in remembering… the events of the day, of the last months… began to lose it’s luster, impact… and I remembered to devote time to Me, my Beloved and family. I remembered to allow the Winds, the Fire, the Waters and Earth to teach me, heal me… after all – they are readily there – I have only to sit still and remember.

This weekend is all about You, the You that is God/dess… the You that is Divine and Blessed. The You that is Love and Joy and Beauty. The You that sings, for the song in and of itself. You shall be your own Devotee.

I am looking forward to welcoming you back, welcoming you if this will be your first visit to our Sacred Village… You will be welcomed with Magick, with Spirit and with Life, I bid you… until we meet again!
