There will probably be a catch-up post at some point, but in the meantime, today we celebrated the Aphrodisia.
After thusia, Scarlet Rose guided us to wash Aprhodite's statue with khernips infused with rose and lavender, then led us in a heart chakra meditation on Aphrodite. During theoxenia (which included pasta with a sweet sauce, shrimp cocktail, sausage, strawberries, as well as cookies and chocolate cake)
we also colored images of Aphrodite and related mandalas as another form of meditation and connecting with Her.
Our next festival is a joint one: the Diasia and Eiarinia on 11 Eiarinion/March 20. For the Diasia, we will be holding our traditional stuffed animal drive, this one to benefit the Expressive Arts program for children at Center for Hospice Care in Norwich, CT.
Until next time, may the blessings of the Gods be with you.
