Community Beltane Celebration
Time & Location
About The Event
May 1st marks the approximate half-way point between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice. It is a time to celebrate abundance and the fertility of the Earth! The word 'Beltane' originates from the Celtic God 'Bel', meaning 'the bright one' and the Gaelic word 'teine' meaning fire. Together they make 'Bright Fire' and traditionally bonfires were lit to honour the Sun and encourage the support of Bel and the Sun's light to nurture the emerging future harvest and guide the earth into summer.
Join shamanic practitioner Roger Lockshier on Sunday, April 29th as he leads this outdoor (weather permitting) event where we will partake in creating a traditional May Pole, share traditional cakes and (non-alcoholic) wine, and dance to celebrate the abundance of life!
You will not be required to bring any candles or tools because the May Pole is the altar for this event! This event is open to all spiritual paths and there is no previous experience necessary to participate. Be prepared to be outside and wear comfortable shoes as running and dancing around the May Pole will be happening!
This event is a free offering to the community, is family-friendly, and is open to people of all paths.
