This mornings first little jobeen was to craft these mini #ivy
wreaths, the idea for which came while out on woodland saunters with Mama Marley.
These wreaths are currently drying and will be another little gift inclusion with ‘The heART of Ritual’ Moonbox next month, in a collection dedicated to ‘Connection’. Ivy very much resonates with letting go of the old, not clinging to the past, and reconnecting/realigning loyalty with Self (aka Higher Self/Spirit). In Irish folklore, Ivy is a symbol of enduring fertility and life, especially at Christmas when it is traditionally used for decoration.
) is the focus of our plant profile next month and together we will explore its folk medicine uses, myths, legends and folklore. Ivy really is the perfect bridge to take us up to and over the #wintersolstice
and was generally believed to have powers of protection and love divination in the old Irish traditions.
The ‘Connection’ Moonbox is the second in our Earth Element/Winter cycle and I very much look forward to sharing it for many reasons, not least because it indulges my love of indigenous oral tradition and storytelling. Story medicine is a very big part of winter ancestral tradition, and quintessential earth element.
I finished recording the audio for this collection this evening and the recipe sheets, tutorials and other written offerings will be completed early next week and shipped to Moonbox family thereafter.
Just a few subscriptions remain for the upcoming Air Element/Spring cycle of ‘The heART of Ritual’, so if you feel drawn to call these collections home, this is likely to be the last opportunity to do so.
Full information on this home retreat service (and how to sign up) can be inJoyed via the link in profile. Subscriptions are available per season or for the full cycle of the Celtic Wheel of the Year, and yes, we ship worldwide! ;-) In Love
