July 2011

Everything is created from moment to moment, always new.  Like fireworks, this universe is a celebration
and you are the spectator contemplating the eternal Fourth of July of your absolute splendor.
Francis Lucille

Hi Everybody! Namaste.

This coming month, a simple cherry bomb or firecracker just won't do. Come celebrate July with "FlyHigherworks" at Peaceful Paths and Light a spark that could last a lifetime!

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in

Do you know that there's still a chance for you
Cause there's a spark in you

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July
                                                                "Baby, You're A Firework" Katy Perry

Peaceful Paths Special Events In July!

With Denise Saracco, Jaguar Shaman
Friday, July 8, 2011      7:00-9:00p.m.       Spiritual Exchange: $25.00

This monthly sacred circle ebbs and flows in accordance to how Spirit calls.  Some circles will mirror a traditional drumming circle while others will focus more on personal/global healing.  Most every circle will feature at least one journey for personal healing & exploration in a way that weaves with the month's focus.  All circles, though they may have varying focuses, will be in alignment with the natural Earth, Moon, and Cosmic cycles.  The voices of all participants are heard as we work and play in Oneness.       Allow your stress, tension, worry, and fear to melt away as you engage in the Great Mystery to restore your balance. Reacquaint yourself with comfort, serenity, Harmony, and Love once again.

July Circle Focus: Finding Calmness & Centeredness

Three major eclipses have recently passed, leaving shaken ground in their wake. The Earth is stirred up, and so are her people. This is the ideal time to begin rebuilding ourselves. In this circle, we will work with the element of water for healing and calmness. We will also ask for the Great Mother Earth for help in rebuilding our center and balance once again.

*Please bring drums/rattles, eyeshade/bandana, pillow/blanket, water, notebook/pen to record your experience!

With Priestess Maeve & Priest Jack-In-The-Forest
Friday, July 15, 2011      7:00-9:00p.m.       $15.00

Full Moon in Capricorn (actual date of the full moon: 7/15/11)

The full Moon in Capricorn is a time of action and coming to terms with things. Capricorn rules structures, authority, limitations, material possessions and is the rule-maker of the zodiac. This Earth sign deals with material things but is also strongly influenced by the cosmic teacher, Saturn, making matters of structure, discipline and limitations come into play. This full moon tells us bluntly, that we are where we are because of our own doing. It is a time for steady hard work. We will use the energy of this full moon to come to terms with what is no longer working for us so we can make way for the realization of our dreams. We will use this full moon to get serious about shining its light on areas in our lives which need insight and change. Capricorn is a tough love personified and we will use this full moon to work the magick to get rid of what is no longer working and to experience the love and support of our spiritual family. Join us as we use the energy of this Earth sign and the Earth herself to dig deep within.
During this gathering, we will call in the quarters, cast the circle, invoke Deity, perform a work of magick, share during talking stick, celebrate with cakes/ale and raise energy through song & dance!  Our magick will focus on using the cosmic teacher, Saturn, and the slow, steady work of Capricorn to build a community structure and to focus on using the earth's energy to bury a personal issue which needs completion.
Robes are optional.
Ritual begins promptly at 7:15p.m.
Please bring drums if you'd like to help keep the beat!

Maeve & Jack-In-The-Forest are initiated Priestess & Priest who have been involved in the Pagan and Wiccan tradition for over 15 years.  For the last several years, they have been leading, conducting & creating public rituals in the New Paltz area.  Their Full Moon Circles are not only sacred Rites which honor the God & Goddess, but also forums for learning more about honoring Deity through ritual.  They regard their Circles as teaching Circles which provide information & education about Ritual and format and they are now bringing their Full Moon Circles each month to Peaceful Paths!
