Tues. Aug 1st 7-9PM
Summer has ripened. Our glorious Sun has warmed our Sacred Earth, and the Blessed Rains have nourished Her. She in turn has given us Her life-sustaining bounty without question or hesitation. Our Mother has worked very hard these last few months, giving all of Her energy and strength to manifest the food that we now have begun to collect. We have also abided by this energy, working to produce a reality that is bountiful, nourished and whole.
The Summer isn’t quite over, but we feel the shift, and for this we pause and remember.
This is the time of the First Harvest…this is Lughnassadh (LOO-nah-sa).
We will celebrate the beginning of The Harvest Season of the Northern Hemisphere, Lughnassadh (Lammas, Loaf-Mass, etc.) by sharing in ritual, when the Sun God shines His strongest, and the Mother Goddess has given us Her first bounty. This is a time to cheer for our many fruitful blessings, to take stock of any losses, and to remember that what we have today should be cherished and appreciated, should it not be there tomorrow. Lughnassadh is traditionally honored with feasting, story, games, and all-around celebration. We will honor the Irish God of the Sun, Sky, and Crafts; Lugh, and His Earth-Mother, the Goddess Tailtu, for whom Lugh is said to have created the games of Lughnassadh.

The Sabbats, of the Wheel of the Year

An 8 part series
In this 8 part series we will delve into each Sabbat of the eight, on the Pagan Wheel of the Year. We will explore the reason for its place on the wheel and its deeper meaning. The holy/days marking the Sabbats are based on a pre-Christian tradition of the Celtic inspired Pantheon. Each month we will examine the potential origin of a Sabbat, its purpose and how we can incorporate these markers in time into our lives. Please bring journal and pen. All materials included $25.00
