Buzz Coil: March 2016
Some recent posts from blogs on our blogroll (please note, we don't knowingly list posts in Buzz Coil that have been published previously by the blogger elsewhere or on the same blog):
Broomstick Chronicles: In a March 11 post, "Claremont Pagan Studies Conference – III," Aline O'Brien (Macha NightMare) discusses January 25 presentations about social justice by Nikki Bado, Kahena Dorethea Viale, and Joseph Futerman.
HecateDemeter: Blogger Hecate's March 9 post, "Pagan Conferences: Why Would Any Thinking Person Willingly Go?" tells why and how she prepares for the Sacred Space conference in Maryland. Her March 18 post , "When You Are a Priestess, Wherever You Go, There You Are," is what I would term a prose-poem about an occurrence (and this is my guess:) at that conference involving a certain priestess from further south.
Association for the Study of Women and Mythology: The ASWM blog is currently focusing on its upcoming conference in Boston April 1-2. Its March 14 post announces:
" 'THE AMAZONS' Wins 2016 Sarasvati Award for Nonfiction." The author is Adrienne Mayor.
Contemplation - Yeshe Rabbit: In the context of her travels, in a March 7 post, "Being in the Flow," Yeshe Rabbit discusses this concept and, in one of the paragraphs, writes:
"...I believe we are always both here AND there. We are flesh, and we are stardust. We are human, and we are divine. We are light and shadow at once. We are real, and unreal, at the same time.We are living pluralities, not convenient or easy to label and fix in stone, but rather dynamic forces of movement. In my view, Goddess is not a single being, she is a flag waving in the cosmic wind, rippling with many colors, names, stories, and possible truths...."
Fellowship of Isis Central: A March 19 post "Happy 40th Anniversary to the Fellowship of Isis," gives information about how FOI is celebrating. A March 15 post announces "Goddess World," a project involving member participation in sharing "research on sacred wells, springs, rivers and streams, woods, mountains, groves, caves , all manner of sacred sites."
Glenys's Blog: Glenys Livingstone's March 14 post, "Equinox @ EarthGaia March 2016," describes the celebration of the autumn equinox in her home country of Australia and in the rest of the Southern Hemisphere and the spring equinox in the Northern Hemisphere.
Starhawk's Blog: Starhawk's March 19 post, "Equinox blessings!" discusses "Spring Equinox – Eostar, the festival of the ancient Goddess who gave her name to Easter." She writes that at this holiday she is letting go of worrying about bad things that can happen, and continues
"I truly believe the daffodils want us to notice how the light shines through them so they glow, translucent in the late afternoon. The lilacs and madrones want to make us drunk with their scent."
Woodspriestess: Blogger Molly started a series this month called, "30 days of Days of Spring." For instance, her March 16 post (on day 5 of the series), "Planted, Struggling, Growing," tells about " a truly beautiful day of ceremony and restoration." With pics.
Love of the Goddess: In her March 10 post, Blogger Tara writes about the Slavic Goddess, Vesna, who "carries the scent of spring flowers with her wherever she goes."
The Goddess House: In a February 29 post, "Grainne Ni Mhaille - the Irish Pirate Queen," Frances Billinghurst, founder and current priestess of the Goddess House in Adelaide, Australia, writes about one of the "Celtic Queens and Warrior Goddesses" that will be discussed at a workshop in Melbourne on April 23.
