Last weekend, I spent my time up in the woods of New Hampshire at an herbal retreat for women. I went with my herbalist hat on, but over the course of the weekend, that hat was replaced with my SpiritualGoddessWitch hat, because this conference was so much more than herbs. It was life.

It is a day to celebrate! But at the bookends of the day – at dawn and dusk – we have opportunity … Continue reading Summer Solstice 2017
