Monthly Gathering

We offer an open circle using earth-based ritual on the third Tuesday of every month from 7 – 8:30 pm.

We’ll be outdoors if possible, and otherwise we’ll be in the Main Hall or Hitschmanova, the room in the basement with a direct outdoor access down the slope from the parking lot. We announce the theme for each month so you can attend as you please, no pressure to attend every session.

If you’re new, we’d appreciate an RSVP so as to plan in an appropriate sized space. However, if you feel like being spontaneous, just show up and we’ll welcome you! Questions or suggestions, please send an email to the organizing group.

We hope to start offering public rituals for some of the sabbats. Here are some of the ways we celebrate…

Our events also usually involve creating a sacred space to honour the four elements/directions – Earth/North, Air/East, Fire/South and Water/West as well as the God and Goddess (masculine and feminine) and our spiritual centre.

West – Water
East – Air
South – Fire
North – Earth
