After a brief review of what they’ve each been up to recently and how they celebrated the Spring Sabbats, Betwixt and Between discuss why the Eight Sabbats, and how they connect with each personally and augment with additional celebrations throughout the year. Hilarityensues when sleep deprivation and one crazy little cat take their toll.
For these two Witches, celebrating the Wheel of the Year provides balance and a sense of presence, both in the moment and in a scope of time and community. It also involves a balance between understanding a sacred narative and a heightened awareness of/deeper connection with natural events.
