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. Due to family obligations, this event will be postponed to a date later in the 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.
GATHERING AROUND THE CAULDRON

Gathering around the Cauldron is specifically designed group that meets on the first Thursday of each month. Suitable for novices wishing to explore the practices and philosophies of magick, ritual and contemporary wytchcraft, as well as providing those who may have read a few books to gain experience by putting this knowledge into practical application.
