Weaving Words of Woo - A Beltane Celebration
It’s Beltane! The days are longer and the time of the waxing sun is upon us! Hearts and spirits are hopeful as we move into summer.
This year our Beltane event will be facilitated by, Thistle and Al, our 2014-2015 May Couple.
Join us as we gather in community to celebrate!
-- Help make a sweet deliciousness to share in ritual.
-- Weave your own, beautiful handfasting cord to celebrate the Sacred Marriage of the land, your love for it, and your connection to it
-- Walk between the sacred flames
-- Bear witness to those who would like to re-commit their vows* and to the installation of the new May Couple, who will carry the tradition of blessing the community each month throughout the year.
-- Participate in a Beltane Ritual
-- Work a spell
-- Share a sonnet
-- Dance the May Pole
