Gather to mark, support, and celebrate moments of significance: cycles of the season, phases of the moon, and other collective transitions.
Next Community Ritual:
Spring Equinox... In Place! The Spring Equinox Ritual is STILL ON! ...zoom. That's right! We will gather virtually and create ritual together IN PLACE. Grounded in the intimacy of our own homes, together we will cast a ceremonial circle as wide as we are spaciously spread, and tune into the many blessings of Spring. Our time together will integrate on-line council circle with on-the-ground flower blessing ritual and in-body movement. We will consciously connect with the land at hand, and blossom blooms of awe and gratitude for the place we call home. Plenty of space for grief, gratitude, fear, and frolicking: bring your full self (and keep your body at home ;)
Imbolc Saturday, February 1st 2020 at 10:30am - 1pm Oakland (outdoors!) Imbolc is that magical point at the bottom of the breath where the inhale begins. From the Celtic wheel of the year, Imbolc raises us from the season of earth into the season of air. Aloft on the wings of the airborne, we are invited into clear-sighted vision. Come into the sacred circle to see and seed visions of the year to come.
Winter Solstice Thursday, December 19th 2019 Winter Solstice gathers us in velvety robes of night sky and glimmering stars. A growing darkness that soothes and hushes the hustle bustle body. Snuggles sweetly into rest amongst the warmth of dear ones. And gazes into the greatness of night… . Come bask in the longest night & celebrate the growing light with community! Samhain Friday, November 1st 2019 Samhain rolls in silent on a time-blending shadow-soft mists. It is the liminal time of year when the veil between the living and spirit realms is most permeable. Samhain is the Celtic name for this seasonal phenomenon that is celebrated in other traditions as All Souls Day, Dia de los Muertos, and Halloween. It is a time to recollect and honor our ancestors, the spirits of the land, and those aspects which linger in shadow on the spirit side of the veil. Join in ritual to honor those who’ve passed and to feed the unseen.
Fall Equinox Monday, September 23rd 2019 The Fall is not a slumping collapse. It is BURSTING with flavor, ALIGHT with color, and WILD with warm-weather-wriggling. On Fall Equinox we dance the fruitful line between the light & dark halves of the year. We celebrate our harvest. And we gather in gratitude, licking our lips as we prepare for the descent.
Beltane Thursday, May 2nd 2019 Spring is spilling its sweet smelling sassiness every which way. It would be impossible to refuse Spring’s amorous approach. Just breathing the fragranced air is to participate in this peak of pollination, alchemy, and sacred union. So come participate on purpose! Cross pollinate in community and juice the juju of this fertile time of year. We alchemize and weave our prayers together as we dance the May Pole.
Spring Equinox Ritual & Celebration Wednesday, March 27th 2019 In the lush embrace of the winter rains and the summer sun, we gather to celebrate Spring! Spring Equinox marks a moment of balance and breath in the in-between. Come celebrate with the freshness of flowers & the sweetness of nectars. Cross pollinate the prayers of one another in this flowering season of possibility and hope. The evening will include a somatic orientation to Spring Equinox, a community ritual to embody the flowering essence of this season, and time to celebrate and connect.
Imbolc Friday, February 1st 2019 Imbolc is a time to call to consciousness the seeds of the future, stirring in the dark, on the brink of becoming. Aloft on the wings of the airborne, we are invited into clear-sighted vision. Come into the sacred circle to see and seed visions of the year to come.
Winter Solstice Thursday, December 20th 2018 Winter Solstice marks the longest night of the year. We welcome the returning light to slowly grow from the deep embrace of the dark.
