Spring Book Special for All

When daisies pied and violets blue
And lady-smocks all silver-white
And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue
Do paint the meadows with delight,
The cuckoo then, on every tree,
Mocks married men; for thus sings he,
Cuckoo, cuckoo: Oh word of fear,
Unpleasing to a married ear!
So wrote William Shakespeare in his poem entitled "Spring".  Here in Adelaide the jasmine, daffodils and jonquils are all in flower in my garden.  So too are my beloved irises (which have never actually stopped flowering) and before too long catkins will appear on the wisteria.  Ooh, what a joyous time of the year it is. 
As a way of celebrating the arrival of spring, I have decided to  have a "Spring Sale" and reduce copies of Dancing the Sacred Wheel by $10.00 when purchased through Paypal.  This Spring price includes postage anywhere in Australia as well as the book autographed by myself.

Ancient Goddesses at the Goddess Conference

At this year's Australian Goddess Conference, to be held over the weekend of 24 to 26 October in Sydney, the theme is "The Wellspring" - a place of community gathering, exploration of wise ways, and the celebration of the receptive waters of womanhood and the moon.
It is within these receptive waters that the wisdom of the ancients, the primordial mothers, can be found. As such, I am delighted to announce that I will be presenting a workshop at this year's Goddess Conference on two such "mothers" from the ancient lands of Mesopotamia - Tiamat (the primordial Creatrix) and Ereshkigal.
