We do this through holding meetings that may be workshops, discussion groups, or rituals commemorating the moons and seasons of the year. Workshops and discussion groups are open to anyone interested. Ritual meetings are open to anyone prepared to participate.
Last year we met to celebrate each full moon, running these meetings as "teaching circles", so that new participants could learn the basis of constructing earth-based ritual. At present we're holding a series of workshops on topics of interests to pagans, and we're always on the lookout for people who wish to share their ideas, methods and knowledge, and those who wish simply to come along and learn.
Time 7:30 p.m. All are welcome! Contact MJ at the address below for details!
If you are interested in contacting us, please email [email@example.com], or leave a message at the UU church.
Last year we held meetings on or near each full moon. Some of these deserve a special mention:
Imbolc at Marion's house was a joyful celebration of the return of light after the dark of winter... It included much discussion of the concept of Imbolc, and the Irish goddess Brigid.
At our meeting on Friday May 3 we celebrated the festival of Beltane, which in the Celtic year cycle marks the start of the summer half-year. We danced round a maypole, braiding our ribbons into the year's Fate. We also conducted a tree ritual, and later had a fine drumming session.
There were two full moons in June, and each was celebrated. Sometimes people call the second full moon in a calendar month a "blue moon". Does it have special significance? Accounts differ, but our second June celebration was notable...
