Weekly Druid classes resume

We have resumed our weekly Druid classes at Unity of Sedona. They are on Monday night at 6:00pm in the Chapel. We have been meeting for three years now, and it is very exciting to be continuing this wonderful time of camaraderie and learning. This week, we talked about the symbolism Samhain, and the origins of Halloween. We also did a brief ceremony for the ancestors. We introduced the topic of Moon Phases by talking about the New Moon and how we can use that energy for manifesting. And we showed slides of the British portion of our recent trip.

Next week and the week after, we will be focusing more on the Moon, as well as showing slides from Ireland and Scotland.

Highlights from the British Isles trip

We had an amazing trip to England, Ireland, and Scotland in the first two weeks of October. It was a very ambitious trip and we were able to see several sacred sites. This was a planning trip for future tours, and we sure learned a lot. In the future, the tours will be concentrated to certain areas. We are hoping to get something together as early as Spring 2020, so stay tuned.

We visited the following sites: In England: Tintagel, St. Nectan’s Glen, Glastonbury – Chalice Well, Glastonbury Abbey, and the town itself, Stonehenge, Avebury. In Ireland: Newgrange, Brigid’s Well in Kildare, Cnoc Aine, Lough Gur’s newly excavated Grange Circle, Bunratty Castle, Hill of Tara. In Scotland: Edinburgh Castle, the Scottish borders, Rosslyn Chapel and Rosslyn Castle.

Here are some highlights from the trip in photos!

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 at Unity Peace Park (the lawn) at the back of Unity of Sedona, 65 Deer Trail Drive, Sedona, AZ 86336 at 4:30 pm on Saturday evening, October 26, 2019.

The ceremony is approximately 30-60 minutes long and there will be a time of socializing after the ritual. Please bring light snacks to share.

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

Autumn Equinox – celebrating the Harvest

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. We will be meeting 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.

Location: Peace Park Lawn at Unity of Sedona
Admission: Suggested donation $10, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds

Lughnasadh ceremony

We had a lovely Lughnasadh ceremony last Saturday, August 3rd. It was right in the middle of the monsoon season, so we held the ceremony indoors once again, and only had a small group of attendees. Lughnasadh is such a lovely time to affirm our blessings and to give thanks for the coming harvest season. Everyone felt the ceremony was quite meaningful.

Lughnasadh is almost here!

Traditionally, Lughnasadh is celebrated on our about August 1st. This year, Druids of the Light is offering our ceremony which celebrates the first harvest on August 3rd at 6:00pm. Lughnasadh is the time of the year when summer starts turning towards autumn. It is also the time of the first harvest, and is the first of three harvest ceremonies. In Arizona, Lughnasadh is a time to be thankful for the rains and for the bounty of the land. It is a time to gather with friends and kin in merriment. The ceremony is approximately 45 minutes long, and there will be a time of socializing after the ritual. Our ceremony will be at Unity of Sedona, in Unity’s Peace Park (lawn area), but will move to the Chapel in case of rain.
