As we turn toward the deepening time, the time of darkness and the wisdom of looking within, I wanted to share a little bit about my Wisewoman Wheel of the Year program, which I've been offering for more than ten years now. It used to be called Farther Shore, because it was first offered to women who had finished my other program, Ninth Wave. The name was suggested by a Wave sister, the idea being that when you have journeyed past the nine waves, you set foot upon the farther shore. And what happens then? The Wheel turns, and each season brings more opportunity for blessings, for growth, for joy, for connection to the Goddess.
This past year, I changed the name from Farther Shore to Wisewoman Wheel of the Year because, first of all, it was more descriptive of its essence and its purpose. But mostly, I wanted to share it with more women, not just those who have done Ninth Wave. I realized that the only reason I'd been hanging on to that "prerequisite" was because that's how it started! The women who had completed Ninth Wave wanted more from me, and I was delighted to comply. Creating Farther Shore was a joyful process from beginning to end, as it contains so many of the things I cherish most about the Goddess path:
- Seasonal celebrations
- Awareness of the inner path and how it connects to the outer path
- Allies from the natural world: animal, plant, and stone
- Individual aspects of the Goddess for each month
- Divination and magic
- Women's mysteries
And maybe most of all, the Wisewoman Wheel is about the everyday wisdom that women possess. We live our wisdom in real-world ways, through the awareness we bring, the gratefulness we offer, the understanding we seek. I invite you to come spin the Wheel with me!
