Our next holiday celebration is the Summer Solstice at the Kripalu Yoga and Wellness Center!
Gather with Northern Rivers Grove as we celebrate the Summer Solstice.
We will honor Manannán mac Lir, god of the sea. It is traditional to “pay rent” to Manannán at this time. Join us as we thank him for the beautiful waters we live near, and how they connect us to the rest of the world. Guests are invited to bring a yellow flower from their garden (or crafted with paper, yarn, fabric, etc). We will add this to a “wheel” and offer it to the sea god.
4:00 – Workshop and Socializing – If you want, bring a plant to exchange. There is a lot of tradition around herbs at this time of year, so if you have some extras that need a new home, feel free to bring them! You can also share some of what you know about the plant. We will also add some plants to Daniel’s Dragon Garden in the Fairy Garden area of the Yoga Center. No matter what you bring or do, this is a great time to catch up with old friends and learn about Northern Rivers Grove.
4:45 – Pre-ritual briefing
5:00 – Ritual begins. We will celebrate in the shade by the Yoga Center. Dress for the weather!
Potluck feast to follow. The theme is “picnic food.” Please add what you are bringing to the potluck thread below to help us plan ahead.
*** What to Bring ***
– An open heart and mind
– Offerings to Manannan (yellow flowers, whiskey, seashells, etc); offerings to your spirit allies (biodegradable and/or safe to burn).
– A potluck dish to pass as well as your own place settings ( emphasis on reusable so as to respect the Earth Mother as much as we can ).
– A small donation towards our rental fee and ritual supplies ($5 suggested).
