Public Beltane celebration and Maypole on May 5th

Published by:

Once again the Wiccan Hearths Gate Coven has volunteered to lead our Beltane rite, complete with a Maypole to celebrate the fertility of Spring. Please arrive at 2PM for a ritual starting PROMPTLY at 3. Due to prep time required anyone not present by 2:30 will not be able to dance the Pole. It will be held in Himmel Park (on 1st St between Tucson Blvd & Country Club), between the tennis courts and Hippie Hill.

It may be hot, so be sure to remember your water and sunscreen. And, if you’re dancing, appropriate shoes. If you’ve never done this before it is loads of fun! Hope you can join us!

FYI, due to time of day and expected temperatures the coven is not having a potluck afterwards, so find a way to celebrate with your friends.

Beltane, and more

Published by:

Hearths Gate Coven has volunteered to once again lead TAWN’s Beltane ritual, complete with maypole. Details will be added as soon as available.

SAZCUUPS will be doing our Mabon rite after Fall Fest on 9/22, but plenty of other opportunities are available. PLEASE consider volunteering for one of the other Sabbats, or for other occasions of your choosing. Several groups have said maybe they’d do one… but I need firm commitments. It’s actually fun! I had 51 people at the one I led for Ostara. Hope to hear from you (group or individuals) soon.

Mabon/Fall Equinox ritual after Fall Fest

Published by:

Julie & Carrie of AZCUUPS have volunteered to lead the ritual for Mabon, at 6PM, after Fall Fest on Sept 22nd. As we will already be there at the church (4831 E. 22nd St) the logistics will be easy, and they are hoping to be able to get us some kind of discount as well. This will be a joint celebration with their congregation, so it may have extra-good attendance. That will a great opportunity to expose their people to TAWN as well. It will be an eclectic Wiccan ritual. I have met with them, and they seem to be delightful ladies, with experience leading public rites. I’m looking forward to it.

Open Ostara Ritual 3/20/18

Published by:

Greetings all. I have agreed to lead a Spring Equinox/Ostara ritual jointly for  Southern AZ Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (sazcuups) and TAWN. This will be a Wiccan rite, with a snack potluck to follow. They usually conclude by 8PM, so not too late for those of you who work in the morning. It will be held at 6PM on TUESDAY 3/20 (the actual Equinox) at the Unitarian church at 4831 E. 22nd St. This is the same location we have had Fall Fest for some years now. In keeping with my usual practice we will be outside unless the weather doesn’t allow otherwise. Hope to see you there.

Looking for ritual volunteers

Published by:

Volunteers still needed to lead TAWN open rituals! Patrick & Morgana have graciously offered to lead our Imbolc/Candlemas Circle, but many others are still available, including one for Spring Fest. Any Nature-based tradition welcome. I ask only for knowledge of your faith, and confidence and competence in leading a rite for the public. You pick the date, time, and location. Please contact your ritual coordinator, Carol Garr, at carol@garden-realty.com or 520-883-4444.

Thanks to Hearths Gate Kindred for Yule ritual

Published by:

The Yule Ritual was well attended with some 30 folks, plus 4 celebrants in attendance. (Total 35).

The ritual celebrations of the solstice and season, along with a feast, ran for about 3 hours around the Yule Fires, with a splendid potluck of hot roasts, stews, pies and other delicious warmness.  Wassail and other warm goodies were to hand and a truly festive occasion was had.

TAWN appreciates your efforts to offer a meaningful celebration for our members and guests.

Beltane – Maypole!

Published by:

Hearth’s Gate Coven is leading their 5th annual Beltane and Maypole dance May 1st on behalf of TAWN.  The pole is 13′ high and the individual ribbons are 10 Yards long and 5/8″ wide.  It is being held at Himmel Park (1035 N Treat Ave, Tucson, AZ 85716, United States) near the tennis courts and participants need to be there no later than 1:30 PM.  Children 10 and under must have an adult that dances the same ribbon with the child, the dace is physically demanding!

Once we raise the pole we won’t be able to add more ribbons so show up early or on time!!!!
