and Welcoming Mabon, the Autumnal Equinox
Tomorrow marks the official 'end of summer' and the beginning of
the new year based on the natural cycles of the earth. How lucky
we are this Autumnal Equinox to mark the arrival of two wonderful books
for those searching to reclaim their ancient, inner wisdom.
Persephone leaves to return to her role as Queen of the
Underworld (or in psychological terms, the unconscious, the
super-conscious, the spirit, the soul). The folk belief was that
this was the time of the year when the 'veil between the
worlds', the earth and the otherworld, was thinnest and most
easily penetrated, when the laws of space and time were
temporarily suspended, a time of magic when the spirit world
could intermingle with the living.
It is Mabon, the fall festival. The crops have been harvested. Now as the nights
begin to lengthen it is time to become more reflective. Less

Several of us have joined Elaine Sonne, the author of the newly
released Legends of the Stones, to put together a
wonderful package of gifts for those who buy her book from
Amazon.com on September 21. This is one of the reasons, I'm
writing....to give you a chance to pick up these incredible
gifts and the wonderful book.
Elaine will tell you about the book (and the gifts) in her own
words, but I wanted you to know that she is a creative and
gifted storyteller who designs jewelry, incorporating mythical
themes in her work to inspire women to get in touch with their
authentic selves. She is convinced that wearable art is a unique
pathway to empowerment--that jewelry and gems promote our
personal evolution and awaken the "wild, sleeping self".
Legends of the Stones explores not only gemology and legends,
but the use of tools such as archetypes, Tarot, chakra healing,
Feng Shui, I Ching, calligraphy, labyrinths, fortune-telling
traditions, and the interpretation of fairy tales and myths. . .
a fascinating quest that I know many of you would enjoy.
So, if you're interested be sure to check out the
newsletter--it's a letter from Elaine that tells your more about
the book and how to get your special gifts.
And, from the staff at the Goddess Path, enjoy Mabon and don't
