Beltaine 2006: A Pagan Odyssey

Author: Rev. Alicia Lyon Folberth [a WitchVox Sponsor]
Posted: August 7th. 2006

Sponsored by: The Panthean Temple
Location: Oxford, Connecticut
Event Date(s): May 5th-7th 2006
Attendance: 300

Beltaine 2006 Pagan Odyssey – It was my second time attending the Beltaine Pagan Odyssey festival, hosted by the Panthean Temple, and this year we were blessed with great speakers, great performers and great weather. A wide range of local and national talents gathered together to make the event a success. For me, highlights included getting to see follow author Ellen Dugan again, and attend her workshops on the Coming Out of the Brook Closet and Garden Witchery and finally meeting and spending time with prolific author Trish Telesco. Both were a joy and I hope to see them again soon. After the Friday afternoon workshops and festivities, and the early evening entertainment including a laser show, we had singer-songwriter extraordinaire Wendy Rule lead us with torches blazing to the fire circle, to officially open the sacred space of event with signing, dancing and drumming. Wendy played again on Saturday night, both a formal concert and due to the cold, moved the show to the fire circle where you continued again, and gave a shorter performance on Sunday to make up for the short official show on Saturday. I also got a chance to see Laura Powers perform and picked up her new CD. Classes over the weekend included a wide range of topics, from my own workshops on the shadow, astrology and instant magick, to classes in tarot, healing, ritual tools, ethics, drumming and abundance. I even attended a wonderfully strange class on the magick of Mother Goose. We celebrated Beltaine with a ritual led by Alicia Folberth and Rapid C. Freeman that included a Spiral Dance and the MayPole. I was particularly honored to be a part of Alicia and Rapid’s handfasting held at the close of the event, conducted by Tamara and Richard James. I look forward to attending again next year.
