Yule Ritual December Friday the 13th

Published by:

Come and kick off the Yuletide season and jump the bonfire with Desert Henge Coven as we celebrate the birth of the Sun God at our Winter Solstice public ritual. Our Celtic ancestors celebrated the rebirth of the Oak King, the Sun King, the Giver of Life with the passing of the dark half of the year and look towards the light as the sun climbs just a little higher and stays a little longer each day. Dress festive and warm! Please gather at Himmel Park, the grove of pine near the library at 6:30pm for our 7pm start time. We will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items for the food bank OR an unwrapped toy for the refugee center so the joy of the season can be shared with those in need. We thank you in advance for your presence. A small feast of fruits, treats and spiced cider will be provided. Blessed Be!

Desert Henge to Lead Yule Rite

Published by:

Desert Henge, our British Traditional coven led by priestess Shea Hermes, has volunteered to lead a Yule ritual this year. Details to follow. With Patrick doing Samhain that leaves Lammas (or Lughnasadh), and Mabon to be covered for 2019. Please let me know if you are interested! And, of course, there is all of 2020 if you have a favorite holiday. Any Nature-based traditions are welcome to lead these, or other, public rites. Contact Carol Garr, ritual coordinator: carol@garden-realty.com or 520-883-4444.

Litha, & other rituals

Published by:

Sadly, no one from our community stepped up to lead a Summer Solstice ritual. It’s disheartening to me to find this lack of commitment to share our paths with others, but all I can do is ask again for each person or group who is knowledgeable enough about their tradition to help in the future. So far only Samhain has been spoken for (thanks Patrick!)

For now I encourage all who would like to share the Solstice with others to consider attending the Southern AZ CUUPS rite, being lead by Heathen Hearths Gate Kindred at the UU church at 4831 E 22nd St. It starts at 9AM Saturday June 22nd for a potluck brunch ritual. https://www.facebook.com/SAZCUUPS for more info

Blessed Litha to all!

Ritual Leaders Needed!!!

Published by:

We are still in need of volunteers to lead rituals for most of the Sabbats in 2019. Patrick Campion has graciously agreed to do Samhain, but no others are spoken for. Litha/Summer Solstice is barely a month away. Come on, people. You like to attend these, so please step up. Any traditions welcome. Coven, Grove, Kindred, or Solitary doesn’t matter. You pick the date, time, and place.

Sincere thanks to Hearths Gate Coven for the enjoyable Beltane, complete with Maypole dance.

Beltane ritual 5/4/19

Published by:

Hearths Gate Coven has again volunteered to lead a public Beltane rite to celebrate the fertility of the season, complete with a maypole, at 2PM 5/4/19 at Himmel Park. Be there NO LATER THAN 1:30 if you wish to dance the pole, as ribbons must be chosen and affixed beforehand. This is always a joyous event, so hope you can be there. No potluck is planned afterwards, though there are restaurants nearby if people want to continue celebrating.
