Deborah Castellano’s Twenty Years With the Amethyst Circle of Sisters Presentation

Mage Deborah Castellano posted “Twenty Years With the Amethyst Circle of Sisters” her presentation from this weekend’s Magickal Women Conference held in London at CharmedFinishingSchool site. An excerpt reads:

“When I first started attending The Amethyst Circle of Sisters, I thought that a women’s only space was a charming antiquated notion that was at once time important, in the murky second wave before I was born.  I didn’t know how powerful women’s space could be.  But I came to need that space in my life both in practicing witchcraft and eventually, other spaces in my life as well.  I know x, y, z gender space isn’t for everyone, but it’s been a powerful part of my practice personally.  When I was a younger witch, women’s space helped give me strength to be brave and to find my voice.  I processed some really difficult trauma in that space, I asked for healing before I knew I had fibromyalgia and just knew I was sick all the time, I did magic to honor my body and my spirit.  Now, as a middle aged witch, I find that women’s space helps soften my hard edges and to open my heart.  I talk about my doubts and fears as well as my triumphs, I do magic to reclaim my power and manifest my intentions, I feel the tiny beginning of becoming an older witch and the inkling of desire to pass on my knowledge to others.  When we cast a circle, we enclose ourselves into a snowglobe-like space together and I feel really safe in that space.  Regardless to what magic we cast, there hasn’t been a time where I haven’t come home more centered and grounded, with new ideas and re-charged.  If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is in this life, honestly.”
