In Autumn in Melbourne, 10 of us gathered around our central altar and shared a special time together. There were so many Goddess Eyes created those days, lots of women's wisdom shared and a deep connection to our inner knowing and the sacredness of pregnancy, birth and motherhood.
One of the subjects that we dialogued on was Orgasm as Teacher and Preparation for Childbirth. Much deep wisdom connecting a woman's experience of orgasm with clues for what she will need in labour and how her partner can best be with her at that time was shared. See my blog on http://www.kindredcommunity.com/ for some words on this subject:

We honoured our ancestors and the turning of the wheel of the year, scryed in the crystal ball, burned our fears away and then played traditional Hallowe'en games - eating donuts hanging from strings with no hands and bobbing for apples.
In the dark, with the campfire glowing we feasted on pumpkin and autumn vegetable soup, damper, sausages and pumpkin tarts. Then finally! - we got to handing out the treats.
Lots of fun.
The gathering was a perfect melding of suitably solemn and riotous fun. And we all were reminded of the inevitability of endings, of death, and our responsibility to be Present and in full awareness of the sweetness of life.
