SOLAR RITUALS

Our Feb 3 Imbolc ritual will be guest led by the Twisted Oak Coven in the Alexandrian tradition. Ostara on  Mar 24 has a leader. If you feel called to lead Beltane, please email mysticgrove@orlandouu.org.  If you need help, we can pair you with an experienced leader.

LUNAR RITUALS

Moon Circle returns on January 26, 2018 and will be inspired by Gathering for Goddess by B. Melusine Mihaltses.  Both men and women can attend as we study different deities each month.  There will be a main deity plus a few extra for homework reading. Handouts are digital.  There is still space in the Jan- June block.  We meet 4th fridays for study and lunar worship. Learn more here. 

CLASSES 

Decoding the Secrets of Egyptian Hieroglyphs class got off to a good start.  The students learned how to write their first names and began learning the rest of the alphabet.  You can drop in at any of the other sessions!

Circle of Song continues in the Spring term on  2nd Saturdays from 1 PM – 3 PM.   This is “easy choir” for the non-singers and experienced singers wanting to play!  Bring your smartphone or tablet to access lyrics if you do not have the book. Kids welcome.

CRAFT CIRCLE

This month you can learn how to make crochet slippers with a flip flop bottom. We will be using this tutorial:

“Three single women in a picturesque village have their wishes granted, at a cost, when a mysterious and flamboyant man arrives in their lives…”
