Our rituals are very participatory, with each person free to be as involved as suits individual preference. The grove will provide materials for offerings available to be used by all.

Mindless Meditation – Kieran Nightstar
this is a class that focuses on the “failures” of meditation (trying to empty your mind, being completely still, and others that make people feel they “suck” at meditation). Instead, in this class, those concerns are faced, and I explain why meditation isn’t about emptying your mind, and teach others that they do not “suck” at meditation. The classes is ended with a fun, active, guided meditation.

Because one simply does not serve soup with a butter knife. Therefore having just one wand and expecting it to do everything is over simplification.
The Patchwork Quilt: Diversity and Inclusion in the Pagan Community – Evan Barton and Sarah Amis
Since the 1950s the English-speaking world has developed a renewed interest in practicing ancient, pre-Christian spiritual traditions. Though many of these traditions are new, they often draw inspiration from mythology, folklore, and the Western Mystery Tradition. Now, “Neo-Pagan” faiths are practiced throughout Europe, the Americas, and Australasia. During this class, we will discuss the history of modern Paganism, providing a context for exploring how race, ethnicity and ancestry complicate ideas of Pagan “inclusion” and whether groups often seen as “non-Western” or with origins in non-Western parts of the world have a role within the modern Pagan community.
