Proclaimed from: San Bruno, California
If you're in the Bay Area, you probably know Abel, he's young, he's enthusiastic, he's just what our community needs so much more of! I first met him when he came to a Brigid ritual with a friend he'd met through the internet. He was still in high school then, Catholic school. Since that first ritual, he's jumped into helping organize rituals. Still a choir-boy, he sings in the Spiral Dance chorus and was a huge help to us on the Spiral Dance cell. In future years, I see him as one of the leaders of a new generation of Witches.
Now I'm writing to ask your help for Abel. Abel wants to take our Earth Activist Training, but he's a struggling student and doesn't have the money. We don't have the money to offer him a scholarship. Our big donors have been hard hit by the financial crisis, and some of them have lost everything. And we are overwhelmed with requests for scholarships and work trade. So we're turning to our community.
The Earth Activist Training teaches permaculture design‹ecological design that teaches us how to meet human needs while regenerating the environment around us. It's the practical application of our belief that the earth is sacred. And we teach it with ritual and magic, and also training in organizing and activism.
I really want Abel to get this training. Put those skills together with
his energy and commitment to the Goddess, and I know he'll be a great force in the world for good. Will you help?
Here's what I'll do, if we can raise the $800 we need to cover just the cost of having him at the course, Iąll commit to offering a workshop for our Bay Area community sometime this spring, called Greening the Goddess. It will outline some of the basic principles of regenerative design in a Pagan-friendly way, It will offer ways to link the practical things we need to do for the earth into our spiritual practice, and give you tools to jump start your garden's fertility, reduce your use of energy, and save money. If you donate now, you'll get the workshop free. And Abel will be my
Donations are tax deductible, and here's two ways to do it:

(Bring a copy of your cancelled check or a print-out from the web to the workshop‹heck, just tell me you donated and I'll believe you!)
While you're cruising the EarthActivistTraining.org website, click on
Climate Change Resources and you can download my Climate Change Primer. It's a good overview of the spectrum of solutions we need to put into place, and not coincidentally, a preview of much of what we teach at EAT.
Thanks! Remember the gift multiplies, and what we send returns to us three times over.
Love and Solstice blessings, Starhawk
