PaGaian Cosmology Meditations
a set of three CDs and 16 page booklet;
also available below in digital format
A beautifully produced collection which supports the preparation and performing of ritual /ceremony for each Seasonal celebration: the Winter and Summer Solstices, Autumn and Spring Equinoxes and the cross-quarter days of Early Spring/Imbolc, Beltaine/High Spring, Lammas/Late Summer, and Samhain/Deep Autumn.
Each season has two tracks: one which helps you prepare your ritual space while the other guides you through ceremony. Includes music and meditations spoken by Glenys.
Whether you are new to ritual celebration or an experienced ritualist, this work will support and inspire you.
“Glenys has deepened my experience of the Wheel by setting it into the vast web of all creation. We are as connected and held by the planet as the planet is held by the gravity of the sun and, so the relationships go on, back to the very creation, the great birth of the universe. Glenys’s meditations invite us to experience these natural rituals of the season as our birthright.” Review by Jude Lally for SageWoman magazine 2017.
This set of three CDs with booklet is a treasure. … Livingstone’s narration delivery, including pace and timing of pauses, is outstanding – easy to understand and neither overly dramatic nor boring, but rather wonderfully appropriate. Each meditation includes music, and when there is music, the balance between the narration and music seems perfect to me. … These are meditations of great depth, which contain both mystery and celebration…., and is likely to appeal to both those beginning on the Goddess path as well as those who have been on it for a while. I recommend it with gratitude for the technical perfection of its audio and the spiritual depth of its content.

These meditations are based on decades of ceremonial devotional practice and meditations that have been part of PaGaian Seasonal mentoring and ceremonies at MoonCourt, Blue Mountains Australia. Each meditation may be a ceremony/ritual in itself, if one chooses: they may simply be a method of engaging with the Seasonal Moment, and when participated in fully, will facilitate a magical process, as Her Gaian Creativity is. I have been told they are also good healing bedtime stories to plug into as you go to sleep, anytime: they are an ecopsychology.
In these times of deep change, a return to sacred ceremony seems necessary – medicinal, even urgent – for the wholing and healing of each and all, for the remembering of who and where we are. Participating consciously in the sacred process of Earth’s everyday journey around Sun, the wheel of the year, is a Poiesis … the making of a world.
The meditations may be for group or individual contemplations: inviting your own creative process within the cosmology offered.

Though these meditations are prescriptive: that is, pre-scribing a creative process, room is allowed within that for any person or group to vary some things for themselves … there is space for your own scribing/authoring within the cosmology offered to you.
Each of the individual meditation tracks come with the preparation track and the Introduction included in the package download. Samhain has another music track as well – acknowledgment below.
