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.

Pantheacon 2020

What an amazing time at Pantheacon. I was a part of the Family of Druidry Hospitality Suite, and we really had a great time – lots of visitors, lots of questions, and it seems that the five Druid groups did very well together! I also really enjoyed many of the talks, which were more in alignment with Druids of the Light than I ever expected to be so…. about the Oneness we share and how we are shaping the future. Yes, yes, yes! To find out more about the Family of Druidry, go to https://familyofdruidry.com/

Imbolc – the tender promise of Spring

Imbolc marks the halfway point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. This is a time of hope and beauty, an appreciation of the warmth of hearth and family, and the tender promise of Spring, when life is born anew.

Come and join Druids of the Light as we acknowledge this gentle, loving season of newness in a traditional way with a sacred sharing of candlelight and poetry, as we honor Brighid, the triple goddess of healing, inspiration, and hearth.

We will be meeting at Unity of Sedona on Saturday  afternoon, February 1st, 2020 at 4:00 pm, to celebrate this gentle time of promise.

You may bring poetry to share, or you can choose from the selection of poems that will be provided.

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.
