Bonfire Circle

Again this year, I had the honor of joining a group of loving, welcoming, fun women for a bonfire evening on Halloween, Samhain. This group celebrates the feminine in many ways through reading, dancing, and gatherings like this one. This night we performed for ourselves the druid dance as seen on Outlander (but with much warmer clothes). We had belly dance performances with flaming fans. We shared garden delicious food and fire brewed tea. We talked and laughed. Our bonfire night surrounded by nature in a circle of non-judgmental women was a soul nourishing experience. Thank you wild ladies for inviting me in.

Bonfire Circle

surrounded by fire, air, earth, water, and spirit
Bonfire, fire dance
Open starlit sky
Herbs, field, woods
Dewy grass, brewed tea

Power of that circle
Gathering of charmed women
to connect with ancestors
to connect with goddess energy
to connect with each other

In a circle
we dance the ancient ritual
feminine wisdom and beauty
flowing, turning, offering, sky and ground
choreographed repetition
lead into creative, wild abandon
then rest and sustenance
gathering in our circle
as is circle of life and death.
