A sister departs...

Monday, May 24, 2010
One of our sisters, Blood Rose, has been on a sabbatical from the coven since the birth of her second child. She has decided to leave the coven for now, and hopefully, when her sons are a little older, re-join. Blessed be, sister... we'll miss you and your energy (now I have to be on the hunt for another earth ;).

May Meeting 2010

Saturday, May 22, 2010
Our inner court meeting was fairly interesting- we heard lots of shouts and sounds coming from the house behind our covenstead. Later on, it turned out the police came, guns drawn, searching through the house for someone. Another interesting thing: we found that a hummingbird had made its nest in a hanging buzzard on the patio where we meet. We discussed our plans, including plans for our upcoming open events, as well as the idea of another former sister re-joining our family.

We'll be hosting an (open to friends and family) Lughnasadh celebration uring the day on 7/31, and we're planning a campout (open to our friends) on 8/20-22. So, save the date if you are interested! Our next dedication (and classes) will be in late August or early September.

During our all-coven class, Rayne presented a workshop on Chakras, and then we worked out some needed dateshifting for our July meeting- we were able to make it work out for everyone. After that, we all got some wine, and Aislin worked through our astrological charts.

We also decided a date for our Giant F***ing Jewelry Party that will showcase the talents of our jewelry crafting coven sisters- 7/10. If you like jewelry, you'll be able to come and take a look at the jewelry creations of a few jewelry artists with very different styles.

Next months meeting, we'll be working on a coven project, our dedicant will be working toward completing her dedicant project, and two of our sisters will be out of town. We have SO much going on, its so exciting!

Beltane Camp 2010

Wednesday, May 05, 2010
This past weekend, we gathered in the hills of Central California for our annual retreat. This year, we decided to go camping at Lopez Lake, known for it's wildlife. Though the arrival of all the sisters was relatively staggered for reasons beyond our control, we still had a lot of fun, and we relaxed our souls under the bright spring sun! We were unable to do some of our planned activities, but things happen for reasons beyond our ken. Like the long walk to the bathroom. Uphill. Both ways. And the night got pretty chilly... but we had a lot of fun! Mirth, merriment and bubble blowing were definitely on the agenda.

Below is a slideshow of some of our photos- more to come!
