Samhain – Honoring the Ancestors

Samhain is a sacred time when we welcome the turning towards winter, the last of the harvest celebrations, the half way mark between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice.

It is also often considered to be the beginning of the Druid New Year. We honor our ancestors at this time when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest.

Come and join Druids of the Light in a very special Ancestor Rite in honor of Samhain, followed by a special blessing to carry us into the coming year. We will be meeting on Facebook Live at 4:30 pm on Saturday evening, October 31, 2020.

The ceremony is approximately 30 minutes long.

Suggested love offering of $10.

Autumn Equinox – celebrating the Harvest

It’s less than a month away. September 19th at 5:00pm on Facebook Live.

Autumn Equinox is a time of balance, a time when day and night are equal in length, and a time of turning inward as we contemplate the coming winter. It is also a time to express gratitude for all of the abundance and blessings that have come our way in the past year.
Druids of the Light will be meeting on Facebook Live September 19th at 5:00 pm to celebrate this wonderful time of harvest, and to honor Nuada and Airmed, the god and goddess of healing and prosperity. The ceremony is approximately 30 minutes long.

Lughnasadh online

We celebrated Lughnasadh on Facebook Live on August 1st. Quite a few people have tuned in – well over 300! This is amazing! We have saved the video so you should be able to watch it at your leisure here: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=2405607063072498

It was a lovely ceremony, and we are so grateful that we can celebrate online and share with others in this way!

We forgot to take pictures of the altar, but we did capture a picture of our Lughnasadh bouquet.

Stay tuned to learn more about the Autumn Equinox ritual – tentatively scheduled for September 19th.

Blessings of the harvest to all!

Lughnasadh

Lughnasadh is coming. On August 1st at 6:00pm, we will be celebrating online via Facebook Live, once again. The link to access the ceremony is here: https://www.facebook.com/druidsofthelight.

This is a special time of year – the time of the first harvest, as the wheel of the year turns from summer towards autumn. And what a year it has been. Our lives have been a little crazy since the Spring Equinox, but the seasons still go ’round and ’round, even if the form isn’t the same.

So, let’s remember that this is a wonderful time to give thanks for all that has come to pass; the realizations, the caring that folks demonstrate during these trying times, the opportunity to do our inner musings and work, which brings us to a state of being more prepared to live more fully from our hearts and souls.

Hope to see you online next Saturday. Blessings of the season to you!

Summer Solstice Ceremony

We had our Summer Solstice ceremony on Facebook Live on Saturday, June 20th at 6:30 pm.

Aside from the beginning, where I had a few technical difficulties, it all went well. Here is a link to watch it on Facebook as a saved video: https://www.facebook.com/druidsofthelight/videos/264209844886459/

In a way, I like doing these live as they reach a larger audience. It’s really fun!

Not sure what we will do for Lughnasadh yet. I will let you know.

Here is a picture of some of our flowers that were on the altar!

Blessings of Summer to you all!

Summer Solstice

Due to things still being rather uncertain regarding the COVID-19 status, we are choosing to have our Summer Solstice ceremony on Facebook Live again. The ceremony will be on June 20th at 6:30 pm Arizona time, and should last about 30 minutes.

We will also be creating a Watch Party for the English Heritage event at Stonehenge, from just before the exact moment of the Summer Solstice (around 2:30 AZ time on June 20th) through sunrise on June 21st (around 11:30pm AZ time on June 20th).

Here is a link to the Stonehenge event: https://www.facebook.com/events/581183132524229/

We will be posting more as the time gets closer… less than 2 weeks away now!

Spring Equinox Ceremony

The ceremony was wonderful, even though only one person attended. Due to COVID-19, I didn’t exactly expect a crowd. In any case, we welcomed the season of Spring, the time of rebirth.

I could say much more about COVID-19 and may do so in a following post, but just wanted to share some pictures with you from the ceremony!

Spring Equinox – a Time of Balance and New Beginnings

Spring Equinox marks the time of balance between the dark time and the light time, winter and summer, night and day; a time of rebirth, of planting seeds….Come and join us as we celebrate the exuberance of Nature as she bursts forth to receive the warm and penetrating Sun in the creation of new generations.

We will be meeting at the Unity of Sedona Peace Park (back lawn area) on Saturday afternoon, March 21st, 2020 at 5:00 pm, to honor this time of new growth and innocence. 

The ceremony is approximately 45 minutes long, and there will be a time of socializing after the ritual. Please feel free to bring light snacks to share.

Suggested love offering of $10, but none will be turned away for lack of funds.
