The Goddess Inspired Advent draws on the elements : Air, Water, Fire and Earth to tell the story of what happens when the Sun and Moon give birth to new life. For four Mondays (moon-days) leading up to Xmas or the Solstice, another layer of the story is shared.
While the Moon Priestess and the Sun Priest journey to the Sacred Place of their vision to birth their child, we also witness three great Medicine People on journeys of their own. Traveling from the farthest corners of the Earth, each Shaman is following her/his wisdom of a prophecy that says that the greatest time in Earth’s herstory is about to come.
Of course, you know how the story ends… or do you?
Here is the story, the storybook images and activities we’ve used in our family to celebrate the Goddess Inspired Advent. You will receive six emails over five weeks which include :
A short herstory of advent
5 audio chapters of the Goddess Inspired Advent story
3 story photos for each chapter

This Learning Journal is all about encouraging life-long learning by supporting students to follow any interest they have.
I educate my children at home, and had been looking for something like this, but everything I found was either full of “busy work” or really ugly!
My interest in the work of Maria Montessori has taught me that children do best when they have the freedom to work within an environment that has been prepared specifically to their needs. It is important to allow the child to choose, while providing the work that is specifically helpful to that child’s stage of development.
The Choose Your Own Topic Learning Journal is a prepared work that supports self-directed learning by allowing the child to choose a topic, and be guided in various ways to explore their education.
Various resources are suggested throughout; awesome for students who like to learn using various methods, and for families who wish to give their children more autonomy in their education. Resource suggestions mention books, as well as the internet, including YouTube and Pinterest.
Working in this way fosters self-responsibility and independence, and supports many learning styles.
This is an activity workbook with room to breathe. Suitable for the self-reader, yet also suitable for a parent-child team to work together.
Cross-curriculur guidance means that many subjects are covered in the work of the Journal. This is akin to the “Unit Study” approach which many educators, both in schools and at home often use.
This Journal will support a study topic for anywhere between 10-28 days, depending how fast your child chooses to work through.
Pages include :
Personal planning and scheduling, Reading, Handwriting, Spelling & Grammar, Drawing, Countries of the World, Film Study, Observation, Music & Songwriting, Cooking, Poetry, Culture & People, Art, Reporting, Presentation…
As the student explores the topic with this guide, it is likely that Science (through experimentation and design), and Math (through measurement and geometry) will be covered too.
Your child can choose any topic that interests them! They will be directed to find 4-6 books on the topic of their choice, and it doesn’t even need to be a serious ‘research book’. Story books, Manga or Comics will work too!
The Self Crafted Life Year Book is made for people who don't need so much schedule and to-do list, and still desire to be in rhythm with the Earth, the Moon, the Sun and Self. Self Crafting is defined as what you do when you create a life that is truly your own.
This is an excellent primer in tracking your individual flow. It speaks to the Rhythm of Life, tracing the cycles of the Moon and making space to track your own cycle, whether it be emotional, menstrual, environmental…. whatever you desire to track and become more focused with, the Year Book will guide you through the steps to become all you can be. When we get in rhythm with the outer flow of the world, our inner world flows more easily too.
This Year Book is a delightful stand alone journal for the year. It gently guides you in keeping to your Vision, and honouring your own personal journey. It also works as a companion to the Self Crafted Wellness Journal.
Perfect for teens as well as women just starting out on a journey of paying attention to your own individual flow.
The research shows that when people track their habits, they are more capable to stick to the plan. When we track anything we are able to visualise exactly where we are paying our attention. This is a powerful tool for transformation, because when you know what you have been doing you can enact transformational change to what you will do next.
Both the Lunation Annual Planner and the Self Crafted Life Year Book are designed to guide the user to Know ThySelf. When you pay attention to yourself and your responses to different situations, encounters, and phases of life, you have a record of coming to Know ThySelf. Get to know You. Journal, talk, feel and really be true with your Being.

Visioning is a term you will find all over the Institute for Self Crafting..
To get the most out of your experience, it will be rad if you have a fabulous understanding of the Visioning process because the use of this conscious work really, truly will make your own journey even better.
This Workbook guides you through the process of starting upon the Shamanic Path. It details everything you need to know to journey your inner realms, in safe and constructive ways.
We enter the Visioning process to enable our Inner Wisdom to have a voice. When we make a decision to enter into the internal realms, we are allowing for the parts of ourself that don't always get to speak, to have a clear pathway to the mind.
Visioning is a space for reflection; for deepening understanding and to listen to your own internal support. You actually know everything you need to know inside. Visioning is helpful to hear what you know!
This workbook will give you tools and practical work to develop your Visioning practice. When you purchase this as a download you will receive the audio chaptersand the ebook.
