Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.
― William Shakespeare, Sonnets
And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
― Kahlil Gibran
September offers many opportunities for our members and friends to participate in circle dance, ritual and labyrinth walking.
Start off the month off with our 1st Tuesday Earth Spirit Circle which will feature picking herbs for tea and sharing our stories about tea. (Tuesday, September 4 6-7pm).
Sacred Circle Dance returns after a semi-hiatus over the summer. The regular 1st Tuesday and 2nd Mondays will start up again (and this year, we’ll stick to the 2nd Monday schedule even on holidays in October and November.) As well, Mairy and Mary enjoyed introducing new folk to circle dance over the summer, so are going to continue to offer a gentle circle dance every 4th Monday 7 – 8:30 pm. These gatherings are especially for those who are new to circle dance or want some extra practice. We practice four dances each time and we repeat each dance three times. So it’s easy on the brain and the body.
In September and October, we’re planning outdoor Sunday afternoon events on the labyrinth with herbal tea and various activities. Come on Sunday September 16th and celebrate the autumnal equinox with us. These events are family-friendly. Bring your kids if you like.
Last but not least, the first session of Paganism 101 will be on Tuesday, September 28th. Louise Bunn who co-wrote the curriculum will be the lead facilitator.
Can you pitch in?
We always appreciate offers of help from spontaneous help with putting the chairs or such back in place or being part of a planning team to put together a ritual. Contact us if you’re interested by email or in person.
