The Sun has reached its most Northern point... stays there for a few days before journeying South ...
So we all together, slow way down,
step into the Still-Point
of the storm
to gather our wits,
dedicate our gifts;
And waft Reciprocal blessings of support, to and from our accomplices, known and unknown.
Who are already there, in the still center of the storm, awaiting our arrival.

Dissolution is the Secret of the Great Work
So let's dissolve all

Dissolving cults, as toxic mimic of Community...

Sean and I are finishing our Plants and Planets Council (of which this Tuesday is a part, but open to all beings,
then that Council will have our last session on June 27th)
I had invited our council members to send Solstice blessings,
and here be one from most wonderful
This last one was very much inspired by the beautiful description that Sean gave of the way Black Cohash brings hope.
As a form of acknowledgement, I also included the green fairy wormwood. the fungi allies, lavender and references to other beings that blessed us during these sessions (including the Bengsons and the Princess Parizade) I wanted to thank also the planets with the plants. I have a Venus moon conjunction and that is the part of me that I feel blessings flow through so I let that also be part of my inspiration as well. Thank you all
so much for the inspiring course. I hope you all feel these blessings blow like a playful wind in your vessels sails

principle for a person to merit the high praise, "His heart is cool" (okan e
becoming sophisticated, a Yoruba adept learns to differentiate
between forms of spiritual coolness... So heavily charged is this concept
with ideas of beauty and correctness that a fine carnelian bead or a passage
of exciting drumming may be praised as "cool."
Coolness, then, is a part of character... To the degree that we live
generously and discreetly, exhibiting grace under pressure, our appearance
and our acts gradually assume virtual royal power. As we become noble,
fully realizing the spark of creative
goodness God endowed us with... we
find the confidence to cope with all kinds of situations. This is ashe. This is
character. This is mystic coolness. All one. Paradise is regained, for Yoruba
art returns the idea of heaven to mankind wherever ancient ideal attitudes
are genuinely manifested."
