Dear Witchlets community,
At our last Weaver meeting, four stories for this year were proposed:
Siddhartha’s Journey to Awakening
Siddhartha is the prince who went on to become the Buddha, this is the story of that journey,
The Last Wild Witch
A pagan, witchy children's story by Starhawk,
The Sleeper and the Spindle
A reworking of the Sleeping Beauty story with a strong female lead, gorgeously written by Neil Gaiman.
Into the Woodlands
A musical — made popular as a movie this year — bringing together several traditional European folk tales.
Click the above titles to link to, or download the stories.
As you can see, all four of the stories we are considering represent a departure from the classic European myths we have worked with in recent years.
At our next meeting, on February 22, we will make final decision. We would love to hear feedback, thoughts, and input from you — the Witchlets community — about these stories! Please feel free to post comments here, or on the WITWoods yahoo group. You are also welcome to come to our meeting and participate in the discussion; however, the weavers will make the final decision.
I am so excited to go back to the woods with you all! Just six months away!!
Rahula, for the weavers
