"Song of Avalon"
The Path of the Wise Woman and Man
We are a grove (not a coven) of likeminded people walking the Pagan Path. We are Wiccan, Witches, Wise Woman and some who choose not to label themselves in a particular tradition or denomination. We gather for ritual at the Sabbats and Esbats and to revel in each other’s energy. We support each other and choose this venue to practice our spirituality.
In 2012 Unity Healing House LLC, (owned and operated by Tanja Wampler) opened its doors to the need of its spiritual community. Its growth is a true testament to the changes that are happening all over the world. To find a place where one can be spiritual without the dogma of religious strong hold. UHH has offered the community that place.
We have now reached a point in our spiritual growth, where Pagans of all traditions, may have a place where we can follow a path that is more structured and aids in the growth of the practicing Pagan. “Song of Avalon” will offer courses to anyone interested in following the “Path of the Wise Woman and Man”.
The last crops have been harvested. The days are shorter and colder. As we go through November each night arrives a few minutes earlier.
Our Ancestors knew that they needed to stay warm and have enough food to last through the harsh winter. This time could literally be life or death for them.
December brings the Winter Solstice - December 21st is the shortest day of the year. From that point on, however, each day is a bit longer. This was a ray of hope for our Ancestors.
The Winter Solstice is also called Yule in many traditions. It is the time of the Rebirth of the Sun. Some traditions will stay up all night, lighting candles, bonfires and hearthfires to encourage the Sun to return. Mythologically it is the time when the Goddess gives birth to the Sun Child who will grow to be her counterpart.
This theme runs through many spiritual paths - from the Christian Christmas, to the Festival of Lights in Jewish tradition and so on. Many cultures have their myth of a child born at this time who is Divine or otherwise remarkable. Light figures prominently in many of these traditions as well. It isn't difficult to see how our Ancestors viewed this time of the year with all of these common traditions. In fact, there are more things to unite than to divide at this time of the year.
