Mabon: The Harvest

Mabon: The Harvest

A Constellational and Somatic Process

Art: Frida Kahlo

As the summer grows into the autumn, the year completes itself, asking us to look at our harvest , at our own life creation, reaping what we sow, reflecting on the wheel of the year, distinguishing, making choices, bringing what is destructive to a closure and determining a new path.

Are we ready to collect the fruits of our last year journey?

How is the quality of our harvest?

Can we embrace it in gratitude?

Which fruits are ripening in beauty and juiciness and which one are rotting and decaying?

What is poisoning…..and what makes us happy as we receive it in our inner landscape?

Which one are ready to be given back to Mother Earth?

Which one do we wish to bring with us to feed our new cycle?

Which one are containing the seeds of our dreams?

The Celtic Tradition and Mabon: The ancient Celtic tradition was widely shaped from the influence of the lunar cycle and the cosmic movement of the stars.
Their lives were in constant resonance with the ongoing transformational process of nature.
In gratitude and in humbleness, they were honouring the wholeness of the universe, allowing their own movement to dance with the movement of the whole, from the world of the spirits and the ancestors, to the world of nature and seasonal cycles. The Celtic year was composed of two seasons, the winter and the summer, and every transition and significate shift between one and the other was a celebration of life and its gifts. In their circular and cyclic vision of time, Mabon was celebrating the transition between the summer and the winter solstice, from light into darkness, from outer into inner…….it was a space of balance, of reflection and gratitude…….a time of harvesting. Mabon is the last Celtic celebration of the year, closing the circle as we breath in into withdrawing towards the integrating stillness of the winter. Seeds sown in the spring, nurtured by the fiery summer, now yield their fruits into our receiving arms. As in nature, the fertility of the Great Mother offers her fruitfulness, we enter a time of abundant gathering, a time of harvesting the fruits of our past experiences, our past self……..the harvesting of the Soul. It is in this harvest that we find the seeds of our new journey.

Our Journey: A deep process of therapeutic exploration of our hidden dynamics and inner movements.
A transitional process from the brightness of the light into the cherishing of the darkness, from the fiery and flowering summer into the harvesting and introspective quality of the autumn.

With Family Constellation TherapySpiritual Healing PracticeMovement and Expressive Arts Therapy, we are going to journey together, supported by the power of the experience and the power of the group, we are going to be guided through a process of detachment from demands and of reconnection with our inner resources.
We are going to become our own healer, diving into possibilities, exploring the needs of our Souls for bonding and letting go,………observing our movement, physical and energetic, in relation to the group system we are part of, and investigating our blocks to regain authority on our energy, by freeing it from trauma’s entanglements, in order to bring more awareness, clarity and flow of love in our lives.

We are going to look at our energetic harvest and as we evaluate it, in gratitude, looking at what doesn’t serve us anymore and what we wish to let go, and at what we need to take in our journey in order to fertilize the land for our dreams to grow and thrive.

How do we stop the cycle of suffering that holds us from a fulfilling and healthy life?

What is holding us back from committing to our own happiness?

Where are we directing our energy and actions?

Which issues are old and are decaying our inner landscape?

What is containing the seeds of our new dream, new life, new self?

How do we find courage and trust to choose for our own happiness?

Every meeting will be guided from the experience itself and from the revealed feelings, perceptions, truths and insights of the participants.

The treasures that are waiting for you:
– Your own constellation, your space to address the issues you wish to explore.
– Awareness of your own harvest, enhanced ability to discern and seed a new path. A supported movement of re-connection with your deepest dream.
– Exploration and transformation of old patterns and entanglements in families and in life.
– Finding ways to create a balanced dialogue with our physical body, stimulating body awareness, energy flow and emotional integration.

Dark Moon – Women Gathering: The Moon of the West

Dark Moon – Women Gathering: The Moon of the West

“I’m the moon of the West, the giving form of the physical body.
I’m the willingness to accept change, the harvesting of what has been sown and the letting go of what has already sewed your growth.
I’m the power of introspection, the transition from light into dark.
I’m the journey deep within, to the hidden life of your unconscious self, to the encounter with your shadow, to the strength that lies inside.
I’m the house of the Spirits, the awareness of the present moment, the physical manifestation of your inner dream”.

Autumn, Earth, sunset, middle of life, reaping, shadow, wildness, introspection, place of transition, confrontation of our demons.

These gatherings are offered with the intention to create a group of women that is longing to live more in contact with the moon cycle and her guidance. We wish to come together during the first dark moon of each season, to share and experience together the moments where we are more receptive to our inner life, the dark moon. By following the natural flow and in constant transformation cycle of the moon and of nature, each gathering will explore the energetic qualities of that specific dark moon and her relationship with the season we are in, giving space to ourselves to share our experiences and allow our heart to be heard.

The circle is dedicated to all the women that with self respect have been, are, and will be standing for their values and their truth. 
The intention is togetherness, it is to reawaken our co-participation with the creative female force of life, to reawaken our being intertwined with all of our ancestors, and to seed the future we dream for the women that will come.
The intention is to create an intimate sacred space, of equal sharing, where we can hold each other hands in movement and in stillness, where we dare to explore our vulnerabilities and our strengths…….to create an intimate sacred space where we can practice becoming ourselves, where we can practice allowing our revolutionary, rebel, creative, intuitive, caring, present goddess within speak her heart……….an intimate sacred space where the moon, the nature and each other are the guides towards the reawakening of our inner self.

The Journey:
We are going to gather in the sacred circle, around the light in the center, the place where all our intentions move through and are transformed into life. We are going to gather, listening and be listen to, sharing our heart stories and intentions, by being in a receptive attitude of thoughtful speaking and deep listening and by embodying and practicing our creativity and caring energy. We are going to gather together with our ancestors and the power of all the women before us.
The words will move into dancing, into drawing, meditating, making music, massaging, into creating powerful sharing.
 
When: When: 9 October 2018 from 19.00 till 22.00
(Next dark moon women gathering: the dark moon on the 6th of January 2019. The moon of the North, a place of knowledge and wisdom).
 
Where: Deventerweg 48 – 7214 DH, Epse.
