Our Next High Day Celebration is for Bealtaine - Saturday, May 10th
Come welcome the green part of the year with Northern Rivers’ Bealtaine ritual!
We will celebrate the returning fertility of the land by honoring Medb, a sovereignty Goddess of Ireland (as well as intoxication and femininity), and An Dagda, a God of abundance (as well as magic and virility).
*** Arrival and Catchup ***
*** Workshop ***
The annual Maypole dance! Arrive on time to secure your place. No prior experience necessary. It is a time for light-hearted frolicking; no need to take yourself too seriously when you dance our Maypole!
*** Ritual ***
As is traditional in Ireland, our magical working will be jumping over the sacred bonfire (or a candle lit by the same flame if you are uncomfortable jumping the bonfire). The purpose is to obtain good luck for the coming season. Ritual will take place outside so dress for the weather!
*** Potluck ***
Our potluck theme is “party time!” Bring your favorite party dish as we celebrate the return of green!
*** What to Bring ***
Please bring a dish or beverage to share, your own plates, cutlery and cups, and any offerings you would like to give during ritual. Please make sure the offerings are either safe to burn (no plastic, toxic plants, etc) or biodegradable (seeds, flowers, “first fruits,” wool, etc)
The ritual is free, but the space is not! Please bring at least a $5 donation toward using the beautiful space at the Kripalu Yoga and Wellness Center!
