Gathering Beloved Memories at Samhain

Written by Corinna Wood, Posted in Corinna's Corner, Self Love, Sisterhood, Women's Wellness

Corinna walking on a path in fallAs I walk the paths of Earthaven Ecovillage, the fallen acorns remind me of my beloved sister friend Rowan Farrell, whose death I’m mourning this year.   

Long ago Rowan learned to make acorn bread. She would gather up a bucket of acorns, crack their shells, leach out the tannins and then grind the nuts into flour. She offered me a piece, wide and flat like zucchini bread. I still remember the moist texture and nutty flavor. 

As the leaves fall from the trees, Samhain season (aka All Hallow’s Eve or Halloween) is a natural time to reflect and grieve other losses in our lives. Many cultures consider this to be a time of year when the veils between the worlds thin. And this year it also falls under a full moon! 

What, or who, are your losses this year? Perhaps there are things you have chosen to let go? And others that were beyond your control?

Women Connecting with Women

Connecting with Your Sisters

heartsSocietal norms shift very, very slowly. In the last century we've seen tremendous progress in bringing women's issues out of the shadows. With strength, perseverance and non-violent resistance to nearly universal oppression, women are reclaiming our rightful place as co-creators of a new paradigm of equality. And we still have a long way to go in a world where violence against women continues to be both endemic and internalized.

Much of what sustains us through our journey is the profound, primal connection of women throughout the world in our roles as daughters, sisters and mothers--the unwavering nurturers and protectors of Life. It's part of our biology; it is our essence. It is the thread that joins us with every other woman on the planet.
