Here’s the story of how why I developed this learning community. The Awakening Over twenty years ago, on a silent sea-side retreat, the universe revealed itself to me as a living, radiant display of Spirit-in-matter, involved with this great adventure of becoming that we call evolution. Hecate, Greek Goddess of The Crossroads.

Hecate, Greek goddess of the three paths, guardian of the household, protector of everything newly born, and the goddess of witchcraft -- once a widely revered and influential goddess, the reputation of Hecate has been tarnished over the centuries.

Warm summer nights are meant for lying under the stars and watching celestial phenomena like meteor showers and moonrises.

Best spots for sky-gazing at night

Over the next three months, mark your calendars to catch the Buck (July 14), Sturgeon (August 13), and Harvest (September 12) full moons, so named by Native Americans, as well as the Southern Delta Aquarids (peak, July 28-29) and Perseids (peak, August 12-13) meteor showers, first identified by astronomers in the 1800s. There’s only one catch: find the right spot with a superb sightline unaffected by artificial illumination. Here are four such places best suited to sky-gazing at night. An evening or two before the full moon, Boundary Bay Regional Park in Delta is the place to head. Pick a spot among the driftwood on the park’s Centennial Beach, spread out a picnic supper, go for a swim in the bay’s warm water, paddle a canoe or kayak on the cresting tide, and then settle in to watch as the waxing moon peeks out from behind Mount Baker.

Women's Red Drum workshop – Red Moon Designs

E Bonnie Devlin- Huntogi Drum master. NIkiah's Red Drum workshops run twice a year so that women interested have the chance both save up, and to plan ahead. {Upcoming dates below-classes are limited to 6 woman per workshop} In many ancient cultures around the world sacred drumming was one of the primary skills that women learned, making their own drums among them. Because it is my sincere belief that the creation of a sacred item is a very powerful and beautiful exercise, I think that every woman should have the opportunity to learn how to create their own personal tools.

I also believe that regardless of the belief system, each women can create and use a sacred drum made by themselves for their own unique spiritual practice and in doing so deepen both themselves and their spiritual connection.
