Event Description

Join us for simple wheat weaving to celebrate the harvest.  We will be using organic wheat, lovingly grown and hand harvested by Full Circle Wheat in Ashland, to make bundles and simple weaings to adorn and bless the temple, or to take home.

Karley Loveling will be returning from Eugene, Oregon, to lead us in harvest songs and chants as we work. 

Wheat’s lineage can be traced to the ancient grasses of Mesopotamia and is the first cultivated grain.  In much of Europe, the last sheaf of wheat from the harvest was cut down with reverence and ceremony, and displayed in the home through the winter.  In Spring, it was returned to the soil, returning the spirit of the grain to the earth to be reborn in another crop of grain. Wheat weaving’s were often hung in the home as both decoration and protection, a symbol of the cyclical nature of birth, life, and resurrection, prosperity and our connection to Mother Earth.

Extra scissors would be greatly appreciated.

Blessed Be!

We Have Five Years To Save Ourselves From Climate Change, Harvard Scientist Says | Forbes

The level of carbon now in the atmosphere hasn't been seen in 12 million years, a Harvard scientist said in Chicago Thursday, and this pollution is rapidly pushing the climate back to its state in the Eocene Epoch, more than 33 million years ago, when there was no ice on either pole. "We have exquisite information about what that state is, because we have a paleo record going back millions of years, when the earth had no ice at either pole. There was almost no temperature difference between the equator and the pole," said James Anderson, a Harvard University professor of atmospheric chemistry best known for establishing that chlorofluorocarbons were damaging the Ozone Layer.

Scientists Keep Warning About The Dangers of 5G; Will We Listen? | Gaia

Over 180 scientists and doctors in almost 40 countries are warning the world about 5G health risks. “Resolution 1815 of the Council of Europe” spells it out quite succinctly: “We, the undersigned scientists, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF)… and has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.”

Humans Are Speeding Extinction and Altering the Natural World at an ‘Unprecedented’ Pace | The New York Times

Humans are transforming Earth’s natural landscapes so dramatically that as many as one million plant and animal species are now at risk of extinction, posing a dire threat to ecosystems that people all over the world depend on for their survival, a sweeping new United Nations assessment has concluded. The 1,500-page report, compiled by hundreds of international experts and based on thousands of scientific studies, is the most exhaustive look yet at the decline in biodiversity across the globe and the dangers that creates for human civilization. A summary of its findings, which was approved by representatives from the United States and 131 other countries, was released Monday in Paris. The full report is set to be published this year.
