Yule 2007

Monday, December 24, 2007
Every year we host an open ritual for Yule. The number of people involved, the venue, and theme usually changes, but two things stay the same. We invite our family and friends and we have a great time! This year, we hosted a sunrise circle at a local park. We got a permit that stated that we were allowed to use candles- very exciting stuff. :)

Here are two pictures... one of our altar before the sun rose, and one of our friends after the ritual! For more pictures, click here!



Exciting News!

Saturday, December 15, 2007
In February 2008, we will be opening our Wicca 101 classes up to all women who are interested in taking them. This is the first time that we've done a thing like this, but we are very excited about it. These "Open circle" sisters will be taking the classes along with our Dedicants.

That being said... we are also opening our Outer Court to those who are interested in dedicating to our coven (which will entail extra classes, meetings, ritual attendance, social events, fun, laughter, etc. :). We will be hosting a small gathering and orientation for both aspirants (sisters interested in joining the coven) and for open circle students on January 26, 2008. If you are interested, feel free to email Ivy at barefootwitch at hotmail dot com.

Have a great day!

November's Rune Workshop/ Esbat

Saturday, December 01, 2007
Blessings to all who might be reading this during the beginning of holiday crunch time!

I just wanted to share what we did last weekend at November's meeting. Willow led an awesome rune workshop, and we made runes out of glittery fimo clay. They all turned out fabulous! Here is a picture of Nahimana's runes.

If we keep this up, we'll have a cupboard full of handmade tools. :) Our full moon ritual, led by Willow ended our really late evening.
