journal and teaSsh. It’s quiet time. Pour yourself a cup of steaming, fragrant tea. Light a candle. Close your eyes. Hush.

Listen.

What do you hear, in the space between the fall of a leaf and the blooming of a rose?

Soft, seductive silence.

Ssssh. Your soul is calling you: Take time for reflection, personal creative expression, silence and stillness.

Let me pull you down into the depths.

I’ve taught my popular “30 Day” seasonal courses via email for the past several years. Hundreds of people have enjoyed journaling each day to the prompts, and/or taking photos and making art, letting their creative spirits shine. Now each seasonal course is available as a PDF booklet, so you can continue the practice at your own pace.

Based on the Wheel of the Year, the year is divided into eight seasons or “tides” that begin with the holy days (holidays). If you’re not familiar with the Wheel of the Year, you can read more about it here.

Each “30 Day” booklet is designed to begin a week or two before the holy-day when the energy of the season peaks. Some of the booklets highlight a specific Goddess of the season, like Brigid, Persephone, or Hecate.

Every day for 30 days, you’ll find beautiful photos, artwork, quotes, journal prompts and art / photo prompts in the booklet. Sometimes there will be tarot spreads and nature practices too.

These prompts will guide you gently into becoming more present and alert to the deeper, hidden messages of the current season, festivals, and holy-day.

I have been continually deeply moved and changed by Joanna’s online courses. If you are looking to connect significantly to the season and your inner soul, please consider joining me in this course. I have found that the seasons and holiday times are easily missed in the hustle and bustle of our society. Taking these courses help me to stay present and in a space of harmony as the wheel of the year turns.

8 holy days

“I loved the Spring course, Joanna, as it inspired me first thing every morning. Though many mornings I had to rush to work, it began my day and allowed me to ponder throughout. I did not write as much as I’d hoped to, but the questions ran through my mind and heart through each day and made me smile to get so in touch with the soul and Gaia in that way. Thank you so much for sharing this. Touching and grounding the spirit with the earth is something you are so very gifted with and it is the kind of thing that feeds my soul.”
Marsha Downs

sacred pauseHow it works:

  • You begin (or end) each day by reading the daily prompts in the booklet.
  • You respond to the prompts in the privacy of your own journal. I encourage you to set your timer for 5-10 minutes, and free-write in response to the journal prompt. Some days you won’t have time, and that’s OK. Other days you’ll write more.
  • You may choose to pick up your camera or smart phone, and take a photo in response to the photo/art prompt. Or you may want to sketch or make art in an art journal or other medium.
  • You are welcome to share on social media using seasonal hashtags like #30DaysofYule or #30DaysofHarvest.

“Joanna has once again created an accessible portal to Spirit! In 30 Days of Brigid, the many ways of exploring Goddess were distilled into personal relationship. Each day I was invited to ponder, What does Brigid mean to me? How might I invite Her into my life and practice? How do I see Her? Joanna has offered a devotional course that is fresh, simple and profound nourishing a woman’s soul. It feeds the stars.”
Dawn Zichko
I really loved this process. I looked forward to sitting down with my journal every morning and spending 10 or 15 minutes exploring my thoughts and feelings via the prompts. I felt complete in the process even after such a short time, and it felt so sacred to pause and to carve out this time for myself. I loved reading the poetry and creating my own — there was no pressure to share, so this felt completely personal to me. I look forward to the next session!
