The sophomore issue of Sabat Magazine is now available, dedicated to the growth of the Maiden into the Mother.
What is mother? This second issue of Sabat tries to cast light on what is, to me, one of the most mysterious of female archetypes. Persistent in her duality, mother is vastness, Nature, a love unyielding and beyond, sacrifice and almighty power, creation and destruction embodied. She performs the ultimate act of human magic, creating new life. Yet in this she reminds us of the cycle of life. Ripe with vitality, she is also the one who whispers of death. A memento mori at the peak of the harvest, calling us to take our place in the circle, or to come home, well knowing what that entails.
Sabat: The Mother issue features contributions from Pam Grossman, Ellen Rogers, Linda Nagler, and many more. Articles cover topics such as individual altars, Victorian ghost mother photography, and an outstanding interview with the Hood Witch, Bri Luna. The graphic design of the magazine is superb, with translucent inserts and stylistic page layouts, creating a truly beautiful tome.
Sabat’s Mother Issue is a worthwhile addition to any library. Available to purchase online or in select brick and mortar shops around the world.
