Circle of the Red Moon-Troup #1
A path of ancient mysteries for maidens of magickal intent
For the cunning and wise-based in the Old Faery tradition.
Gaia Scouts is a school year long-once a month-four hour class taught by adults Victoria Gill and her assistant, Amy Bean FOR girls ages 12-15.
This unique form of scouts holds true to the ways of the magickal heart and mind of young women (ages 12-15) . Gaia Scouts is an outcropping of a class called, Faery Scouts (ages 9-11) which began in 1999 in Olympia, Washington. Two new groups of Faery Scouts followed in Portland, Oregon; one in 2005 and one in 2010. The 2010 Faery Scouts, Troup #3 is still in session. There is a group for the little ones (ages 6-8) called, Pixie Scouts. Gaia Scouts begins on Sunday (to assist those with Saturday conflicts) , September 16th, 2012. The class runs from 1-5. Payment options available upon request. Ten young women accepted.
What is a Gaia Scout?
A Gaia Scout is involved in a series of teachings that follows the ancient ways of the Goddess and addresses the magick that dwells in a young maiden’s body-mind and spirit. It is a path that works with the Old Druid and Faery tradition. As a girl enters and lives her teen years, there are overwhelming challenges that face a girl of this age. Gaia Scouts provide a safe place to honor the goddess within-to honor herself and others and the earth (Gaia) upon which she stands. Gaia Scouts also provides an opportunity to learn to sit at the feet of wise women and men and to learn the ways of those who have walked before her, especially her elders. I would like you as a magickal guardian in her life to join me in this wisdom circle. The following are some of the areas of study that will be covered in this 10 month long time spent with your daughter.
♦The Great Faery Circle
♦Tools of magic
♦ The five sacred directions
♦Silver Faery branch
♦Druid Wheel of the Year and holidays
♦Magickal symbols and ancient alphabets
♦History of the Faery linage
♦Guardian totems and animals
♦Study of herbs
♦Personal sacred temple
♦Working with Faery allies
♦Druid Tree oracle (Ogham)
♦Meet your dragons
Each scout meeting, the girls will make and create wonderful magickal projects such as wands-spirit dolls-paper mache skulls-dragon pendants-ancient alphabet scrolls-a secret book-goddess work-a broom (for sweeping out the negative) -bard invocations and poetry work-etc. They will have ‘nine doors of the adept’ to move through (magickal accomplishments) and subsequently receive a Faery Crest or charm for their mantle (sash) . The girls will need a cloak and cap along with a mantle of any color of choice but must be lined in red for Circle of the Red Moon. This is the official Gaia Scout uniform. In traditional Girl Scouts, teachers and helpers are called, Den Mothers. In Gaia Scouts, we are Cottage Grandmothers, Cottage Mothers and Cottage Tenders (helper) . There is a passage ceremony as the conclusion of the scout year in June that includes all girls who are: returning to Gaia Scouts-moving on to other interests or finishing their four years (special initiation) .
Victoria Gill M.Ed.-cottage grandmother has degrees in special education- music education with minors in art and theater. She works with sacred art, is a black and white photographer-poet-chanteuse and a lover of magick and enchantment. She is an avid gardener and a lay herbalist-growing many of the herbs that she works with. Teaching children of all ages as well as adults is one of her passions. She taught yoga for 40 years having finished some of her studies in Northern India.
Amy Bean LPTA, LMT-cottage mother is an empath and healer-known since childhood for her intuition-energy and healing hands. She loves every moment of mothering her two magickal daughters, perfecting the lost art of sacred self-care and seeking ever-deepening connection with the Divine. Amy is honored to witness-guide and empower girls as they discover the wise-woman within that is their birthright.
