First … I just want to say, where the heck did July go? Seriously. Like whoosh, and the last thing I really remember clearly was the 4th of July and now AUGUST?? Looking back on July, I got loads accomplished so apparently, I was just so busy that time had no meaning.
August is traditionally a holiday month. As a kiddo, we used to spend time in Maine or New England almost every year, plus at the Delaware beaches. I have no holiday scheduled but I do plan on having some FUN this month. There is plenty to keep me entertained in the creative online world that also has me expanding my horizons!
I am delighting in how the 52 Goddesses eCourse has been unfolding. Writing ceremony and meditation for all of these marvelous Goddesses has been intense and renewing. It is a self study course, meaning you can start anytime and then once a week, a new Goddess is revealed. Each week contains ancient wisdom and living mythology (how the Goddess may unfold in your life now), a meditation or ceremony, and recommended resources for those Goddesses that you can’t get enough of. We also have a Facebook group so you can interact with other women on the Goddess path!
Writing the Goddess is a new eCourse that I am working on and it is full of vision-board style journaling and connection. That will be available August 8. If you see me walking around with pieces of magazines and random words stuck to me, the glue stick and I got into a tussle.
Now for some more August Goodies …….
