YEMAYA BLESSING OF THE WATERS
This annual beach side rite is held in honour of Yemaya around the first full moon of each new calendar year.
We meet on the grassed area outside the Grange Hotel at Grange Beach around 8.00pm (look for the purple banner) to head down to the shore in honour of Yemaya, the Queen of the Rivers and Oceans. Rite to commence around 8:30pm.
In this informal rite, we ask for Yemaya’s blessings of all the world’s waterways, sea creatures, and all other beings that fall under Her protection.
Please bring an offering to Yemaya (flower, crystal, stone etc) that will be thrown into the ocean. Participants will also be invited to share in a libation of watermelon (Yemaya’s favourite food).
Children are also welcome to attend but must be supervised by their parents/guardians.
A gold coin/loose change charitable donation will be collected.
THE WYTCH’S CIRCLE
(Commencing Wednesday, 10 August 2017 – 7.30pm)
Commencing just after the first full moon following the timing of the Southern Imbolc, “The Wytch’s Circle” will run for four sessions, held weekly, and will provide participants indepth information into the beliefs and spiritual practices of Wicca (modern Wytchcraft) and Paganism through the use of ritual, magick, divination and much more.
“The Wytch’s Circle” is specifically designed for both the complete beginner as well as those who have had some ritual experience (either solitary or within a group) and who are seeking more advance and indepth instruction.
Through the exposure of various magickal and esoteric techniques, the emphasis will be on working ritual and magick within a group format in order to … create a magickal egregore that will enable each participant to tap into the true concept of “walking between the worlds”.
“The Wytch’s Circle” course will include:
** Understand the philosophies and “spirit” of Wicca and Paganism,
** Explore the concept of Dual Divinity (ie a divine masculine, God, and a divine feminine, Goddess),
** Attune to the sacred seasonal festivals (referred to as “Sabbats”),
** Raise energy within a group context,
** Create and work with a magickal egregore,
** Craft your own spells for prosperity, healing, peace,
** Included participation in a traditional ritual,
and much more.
