The Wheel of the Year

On the homepage of this blog I said the following …

Green Path Monastery has been created to share with others how I have come out of religion and reconnected with nature and spirit utilizing the Wheel of the Year .

In today’s blog post I would like to share some more with you about the Wheel of the Year.

The Wheel of the Year is an annual cycle of seasonal festivals, observed by many modern Pagans, consisting of the year’s chief solar events (solstices and equinoxes) and the midpoints between them.

Contemporary conceptions of the Wheel of the Year calendar were largely influenced by mid-20th century British Paganism.

Living with nature and celebrating the gifts of the seasons is what working with the Wheel of the year is all about.

I have found that re-rooting myself with the natural cycles of the seasonal festivals has kept me from becoming so distant from nature and distracted. It has allowed me to live in harmony with nature and created peace in my life.

I invite you to slow down and take a breath and join us as we follow through the Wheel of the Year to tune in to the energy of the earth (Mother Earth), and feel more in flow and in harmony with her rhythm.

Tomorrow begins Mabon the Autumn Equinox (September 20-23) which is a wonderful time for completing projects, and beginning to slow down as we head into the colder season. This is a time to look inward and to make more time for rest and self-care.

What will that look like for you?

If you find our blog post to be interesting and informative then please share them with your friends and family.

It was around this time that I found myself living with an herbalist and the rest is history.
