New Moon Sunday, September 25, 2022
I am the Muse,
Your inspiration,
Coming to you from
That part of you that wants to dance
To sing, to fly, to dream,
To choreograph the next leaf game with wild dolphins.
I am the fairy circle that invites you to tea
That holds you in rapturous wonder
The ecstasy of total delight when
Something never before seen or experienced
Floats into your awareness.
I tickle you gently
Whispering in your ear with the lightness of bubbles
Floating around you,
Making rainbows in the sun
Until I pop in Divine timing, and you awaken.
Inspired by beauty
From the inside out, I draw you in,
Following me down the path of
Surprise, adventure and awe
Not knowing what will reveal itself
I lure you on. 
I hold you, entice you, and claim you,
For there is nothing that I have not created.
My evidence is everywhere . . .
The colorful fish on the reef,
The corals that host them,
The sea Jellies that never really die,
Remind us to reinvent ourselves
To use our imaginal cells to
Remember our nothingness until
Our everything-ness returns in
All its newness,
it’s never before been in a body-ness
Like me, like you, dancing me
With words never before strung together
From wherever they flow in the moment.
Sylphs painting wild rainbow
You are new in every moment
Recreating every cell in your universe
Simply by your perception
The newness of how you see things
Changes them – to their very atom.
Electrons spinning sympathetically
From my heart to yours.
How you see me changes me
The joy with which I know you
Ignites the muse
to reveal Herself
once again in newness.
If you want me to dine at your table,
See things anew
Don’t assume anything
Be curious and astonished
Let the beauty move you
Share your delight.
Vyana (Heather) Reynolds, a Temple Keeper of The Muse Temple, offers this transmission.
Guiding Principles & Guidelines
for Preparation and Participation in
Sanctuary of the Open Heart Circles
A STRONG REQUEST from Ariel to watch these important GUIDELINES for all Sanctuary circles!!
Inspiring wonder, astonishment, miracles!
Dear ones,

 Have you always searched for the deeper meaning in things?
Do you wonder about the larger patterns and how everything fits together?
 Where do you have a place to bounce the Mystery around in a circle of magical beings?
(These live circles are supportive of the Sanctuary Instagram page, where you can play the Mystery Mirabilis game of responding to the mystery questions for points toward a prize. Sound fun? If so, join us on Friday, December 24 at 4PM Pacific. (Accruing points towards a free deck of her Consciousness Koan Cards!) Mostly, we just want you to have fun playing with consciousness and deepening with the Mystery!
In delight, Ariel
Beloved community,
Greyson is currently the 13 Moon Temple Keeper for the Initiator archetype. Her gift with being able to perceive and then speak the truth she sees, has been literally honed to a fine art, in the sacred work that she offers. She will be sharing the back story as to what brought her to this artistic form in her Priestess path. Her intention is to inspire each of us to step more fully into crafting our own unique path from the gifts we each have been given in this lifetime!
Greyson has submitted her new book called Letting Her Go to Reese Witherspoon’s publishing company. She will hear soon about when that will be available to inspire all of us!!
In the realm of art as soul exploration, Greyson is a gifted intuitive astrologer and water color artist. She has brought these gifts together in three forms in what she calls SoulStar Charts, Gene Key charts and Archetypal Wheels. She creates these charts for individual self-inquiry, inner exploration and meditation. SoulStar Charts are Astrology charts painted to reveal the unique keys you hold in the alignment of planets, asteroids and signs in your birth chart. Gene Keys Charts are painted as as wall art or to sit on your altar for use in contemplation as you embrace the shadows of your individual gene keys to reveal the gifts and embody the siddhis of your Soul. And finally, Archetypal Wheels combine your natal chart with an archetypal wheel to map how your personal astrology weaves together with the primary archetypes guiding your life!
Greyson is a gifted teacher and initiator of the 13 Moon Mystery School work. She will be relaunching her virtual two moon (months) long offering (once a week) an introductory program to explore the underlying core principles guiding the 13 Moon Mystery School work. This will be a virtual zoom offering called “ Into the Mythic”. In it, she will be also be offering people the opportunity to dive into a general exploration of archetypes and in particular their Archetypal Wheels. The content for each module will be given on a Sunday to be explored and deepened with until meeting on Thursday evening to explore the material in each module more deeply together . It will begin on October 20th. If you have wanted to have a delicious taste of the deep fruit of the journey around the whole archetypal wheel of the 13 Moons, you would delight in this introductory exploration with Greyson! 
Greyson’s offerings can be explored on her website here:

A New Community Offering!                  
13 Moon Oracle Divination each moon!
Dear Ones,

There has been an expressed interest in creating a way to deepen as a community with The 13 Moon Oracle, to use it as an overview divination for that moon. If that sounds like delightful fun for you, please join us on Friday, October 21st at noon for our voyage of this adventure!!

SAT. SEPT 24TH 2022
Beloved community,
Human beings are designed to connect in the heart!
Without that connection, a withering can take place, a lack of truly thriving. For all time, beings have gathered in community to share seasonal Turns of the Wheel.. such as we are beginning to feel, as we move toward Fall Equinox Sept 22nd. In our technologically oriented society, many tend to under-value taking time to meet with each other in person to connect around these impactful “acupuncture points” of Mother Gaia’s seasonal Turns of the Wheel.
  I have been honoring the four major seasonal Turns of the Wheel each year since I was in my early twenties. (I am almost eighty!) I have gratefully found community in the Sanctuary of the Open Heart, like yourselves, who also want to honor our Mother Gaia in this tangible way, to meet at the times that are most potently impactful on these four major Turns of the Wheel of the Year. I always wonder why there aren’t more beings who choose to come play and celebrate life together, live and in person. So, I would like to make a very personal invitation to each of you to come experience a live celebration, to feel how uplifting and inspiring these celebrations are to our hearts and spirits! 
   I remember a time in Avalon where beings traveled for days to come to these seasonal Turns. In the Bay area at least it takes only a few minutes to gather. This time we are meeting in the East bay at the Yurt Temple. Please come play with us in consciousness to celebrate this harvest time of year together! Let us remember and honor Gaia as our Mother and honor the body of the Earth as sacred. Please come share in Her Harvest celebration! And wherever you find yourselves, please celebrate this important seasonal Turn on Gaia!
When: Sat. September 24th NOON (gates open at 11:30)
Where: Yurt Temple Berkeley, CA. (directions given when you register)
What to bring: Please bring an autumnal harvest feast item to share after ceremony,
musical instruments, and ANY offerings in poem, song, dance to co-create the magic, around the theme of re-balancing, re-harmonizing with the Earth!
If in your joy, please bring a symbol or image, poem or song to share what you are harvesting at this time that you want to celebrate with community!!
Who: We welcome all genders and children who can hold ceremonial space.
Please join us for this delightful shared, supportive community celebration!
Heart donations gratefully accepted!
The Dream Weaver Circle
Dearest Weaver Dreamers,
Do you dream vividly and garner guidance and support from your dreams? If so, consider joining Priest/ess’ from around the world in the Dream Weaver Circle to share and connect around dreams. We will hold a zoom call once a moon to look at and garner the wisdom from our personal and collective dreams. We will also set the patterning to connect etherically in Dream Temples. Our next Dream Weaver circle will be Friday, October 7th, 2022 at 12pm Pacific.
Throughout all times, Priest/ess’ have been sensitive receptors for the Greater Divine Dream, dreaming itself through us. They have functioned as oracles seeing into the non-linear matrix of time and space, as sensitive instruments aware of a broader spectrum of quantum possibilities manifesting. They have been messengers for the archetypal realms who interface and seed divine, creative possibilities through the non-linear nature of dreams. For the collective community, oftentimes they were harbingers of events providing an immediate opportunity to act on the messages delivered from higher realms. It is for all these reasons, that we gather as a Dream Weaver Circle. If, as an aspect of your Priest/esshood, you perceive of yourself as a conscious Dreamer in these reflections, then join us in service, by submitting dreams that have this mythic, collective, archetypal and transpersonal quality. 
 This Dream Weaver’s circle focuses on dreams that are archetypal and mytho-poetic in nature. It is the intention of this offering to look for the larger patterns in the collective Dreamfield that are emerging through the lens of the conscious dreaming of the priest/esses in the circle. As well, themes can be suggested for our conscious dreaming of reality, that can and do affect the collective Dreamfield matrix.
   It is not the intention of this circle to analyze or necessarily even to respond to the dreams, as each recipient will garner his/her own wisdom, inspiration and gifts from sharing a given dream. However, if you choose to respond by lucidly entering the Dreamtime to share and commune telepathically, that is certainly being encouraged!
Please enjoy going to have a look at the new Dream Weaver offering on the Sanctuary website, where you can post dreams, make comments and find the schedule for our once a moon zoom call Dream Weaver circles! Click HERE!
If you are interested in connecting with other dreamers between moonly zoom calls please join our facebook group: Click here to join Facebook group.
Perspicacity is more subtle than simply demonstrating high intelligence or mental acuity. It implies a penetrating aspect of intelligence that more than soley reasons and “understands things”. It is one thing to have the intelligence to reason and understand something, it is another to penetrate the more subtle aspects of that which is perceived… to be able to have the refined discernment to compare and contrast those differences with the subtlety of penetrating intelligence. Perspicacity moves more into the realm of the way intuition works. Come to this Soul Salon to explore this powerful concept and in the process perhaps become more perspicacious! We will explore Complexity theory, the scientific realm called “the edge of chaos” to find new ways through the present global eco-system collapse that is the hallmark of that realm. Rather than capitulating to helplessness, how can we discover how to celebrate and move with this transition phase that is between stagnation and anarchy toward spontaneous, adaptive solutions?
Join us for this exploration on Wednesday, October 5th at 12PM PST!

Re-Visioning-Alchemy Circle
“May thine eye be single.”
Dear Beloveds…
For me, the most potent aspect of Empty Presence is the alchemical transmutation that becomes possible as we hold that field together. We are inspired to offer a moonly call expressly to focus our attention on collective transmutation through alchemical re-visioning, as we are trained to do in etheric Priest/ess temples. That is, with our unified attention in Emptiness, to re-script and re-vision what appearances on the screen of life are most requiring transformation at the time, while also amplifying and giving thanks for that which IS changing and working toward life sustaining choices. We have the power to work WITH Divine intention to change the constructs we have chosen to accept and call “reality”. Whether you call that process the hundredth monkey theory postulated by Rupert Sheldrake as morphogenetic field theory or the formula for shifting underlying reality constructs postulated by Gregg Braden in the Divine Matrix of the square root of one percent of the human population, it is the same operant principle. The summation of which can be simply stated:
WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE to the outcome of the “reality movie” in which we participate!
Do you hear the call to be a part of a Re-visioning-Alchemy circle to make a shift in the reality constructs of this planet? If so, please join us for our maiden Voyage to the Temple of Astraea on the etheric to remember and be re-trained in this advanced Priestess meditation art!
Let us gather in our unified power as Priest/esses to offer the ancient art of Re-visioning-Alchemy for the Purpose of being the Divine Shuttle Reweaving the collective Dream!
Join us for our Voyage to the etheric Priest/ess Temple of Astraea (that we journeyed to at Winter Solstice) to dimensionally gather for this sacred intention.
Sunday, October 16, 2022 at 4PM PST
We know we have the power to shift
the collective constructs of this planet
through our unified intention in Love!
Let us use our singular vision for the potent purpose
of greatly needed alchemical transmutation!
( Through Priest/esses mythically spinning straw into alchemical gold!)
In Oneness…Ariel

A Personal Invitation from Ariel
Dear Ones…
Drink from Her Well is a direct demonstration and training for how to work with collective alchemy! It means so much for the collective awakening, that we hold these alchemical circles, both physically and etherically, beyond ego mind and in Divine Love’s name. It is so critical now, that the Divine Feminine rise in alignment and integrity with the most expanded viewpoint of what is being asked of us at this intense time of planetary transformation. 
Please join us for the next Drink from Her Well!
In Her Name,
Change the Story, Change the Future!

JOIN US FOR A Look at Changing the Meta-story
of our Times.. SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23RD AT 4PM PST
Gather ‘Round the Fires of Consciousness to Explore and Share Awareness
Dear Ones,
I stand ecstatically under the hot shower water in the morning, often in tears of gratitude for the amazing gift that that actually is. Such a precious offering from our Mother, that we take so much for granted, when many of the beings on Earth don’t even have clean drinking water, let alone hot showers. 
As we all know, water is the basis for life on this planet. (Earth is fondly known around the galaxy as “The Planet of Waters”.) We are literally held by the watery womb of our Mother’s oceans and the truth many have forgotten is, we exist here, only by Her grace. As a species which is literally trying to survive, to birth itself into the New Story we are all creating, of cooperation and love, we are deeply connected, not separate from, that watery-womb.
 As the Mother would have it in divine timing, a dear friend suggested I read a book called “Change the Story Change the Future: A Living Economy for a Living Earth” by David Korten. At first glance I had my regular resistance come up of complete non-interest in anything to do with money or the economy. (I don’t even own a TV to avoid being programmed by this insane model). So a few days went by and I got another nudge from guidance to move past my immediate resistance to get this book. I eschew the distorted 3D obsessional focus on money at every turn, so I was perplexed as to why this would even interest me. Well that didn’t take long to figure out, as soon as I received the book. 
It was the perfect compliment, from a linear point of view, concerning changing our story to change our future, as I had written in my latest book from a right brained, non-linear, spiritual point of view, Gaia’s New DreamCoat: A Faerie Guide to Gaia’s Greening. The point of which, was to playfully assist beings in considering the power of affecting those changes and creating that new story, from a planetary, larger lens, morphogenetic, alchemical point of view.
This New Story asks we humans to change our belief in the current story from one of greed, manipulation, and considering the Earth as something to be plundered, to seeing Her as a LIVING BEING, who rather, needs to be honored and cared for if we are to survive as a species! 
Come join us in being part of CHANGING OUR STORY!!
