Medicine Wheel Moon Series Three: Tuesday, November 5th, South/Fire
Rachael McCaskill and Bonnie Kavanagh will explore ways to connect to and honor the fire within to support us through the cold, dark days of winter. They will discuss using food and herbs to support our immune system and keep us healthy this winter. Including a recipe, instructions and sampling of fire cider, a traditional wintertime tonic to battle colds and flu. They will share simple self care techniques to support ourselves through the process of deep winter reflection that will allow us to transform come spring and come into full bloom in the summer. By supporting our hearts, passion, creativity and fire within we nurture and give space to grow into more authentic versions of ourselves.

Katherine Fotiades will serve as the facilitator for this four part moon series created to lead us towards reawakening and strengthening our connection to nature, which includes our connection to our inner selves.Katherine has called together both longtime friends, as well as new friends to serve as the guides and educators for this special series. Together we will weave together a beautifully rich tapestry of wisdom,ceremony and simple mindfulness practices that you can take home and wrap yourself in throughout the winter season. May the tapestry woven by this tribe of kindred souls provide you comfort, rejuvenation and peace.
Each evening will begin with a simple ritual to honor the power that reside in each of the four directions and will be followed with a brief meditation. Our focus will then turn towards deepening our connection with the direction and element of the evening. Our time will close with a grounding ritual in order to allow the fullest integration of the wisdom and gifts that you have received.

About Medicine Wheel Moon Series
The Medicine Wheel has been used for health and healing for many generations. By using this ancient and powerful symbol, we will prepare our bodies, minds and spirits for the deeply meditative and rejuvenating dark days of winter.
Together we will journey around the wheel honoring the Four Directions: North, East, South and West. Through practices of mindfulness and simple rituals we will offer our gratitude to the natural elements. We will also be using the energy of the Full and New Moons in October and November to support our intentions of preparing ourselves for the winter months of introspection.
By taking time to remember our connection to nature, we become more fully rooted in our connection to ourselves and each other and thereby become healthier and stronger both individually and collectively.
