Status: Established Group
Community Support: Open Circles...
Group Overview: We are a diverse group (ages 24 to 71) who have been gathering twice a month for ten years and we welcome new people. Tied together by our love of earth-based spiritual paths and practices, we get together for book discussions and personal sharing, seasonal sabbat ceremony and celebration, field trips, fire circles, potlucks, and rituals that explore the old/new ways. Our discussions have centered around a wide variety of topics that relate to our many interests such as divination, shamanic journeying, plant spirit medicine, the ways of magic, the fay, witchcraft, past lives, Celtic traditions, Wicca, Druidism, setting up the altar, and more. Lately we are incorporating relevant fiction and films. We have taken workshops, had guest speakers, and made candles and brooms.
Some of us attend the annual Beltaine celebration at A Sacred Place in nearby Canaan, NH, the Samhain festival and ritual in Peterborough, NH, and we sometimes travel north to Plymouth, NH to celebrate pagan holidays with the White Mountain Pagan Alliance. We hope to go to the Earth Spirit Twilight Covening gathering as a group. Some of us have gone down to the Pagan Four Quarters Sanctuary in Pennsylvania and we plan to make a field trip to America's Stonehenge in NH.
We try not to take ourselves too seriously, have fun being out of the broom closet and laugh a lot, as well as share support for those following a pagan path. We are an open coven, and all are leaders, although one of our members is beginning study to become a leader and priestess.
Our regular meetings are on the First and Third Thursdays of the month at 7 p.m. in Lebanon or Canaan from September through June and less regular gatherings outside in the summer. Contact us, tell us a little about yourself, and we'll give you more detailed directions.
Those of us who have been attending regularly are wanting to
-follow the pagan spiritual path as an integral part of our lives
-deepen connection, commitment and support within our circle
-expand our knowledge of pagan practices and rituals
-practice creating sacred space and raising energy at each meeting
-learn how to weave spells and help each other in this way
-broaden our knowledge and skills in a variety of directions
-encourage personal conversation that draws us together
A TASTE OF WHAT WE DO: At our meetings we create an altar, light candles and cast the sacred circle. We love to sing and often sing rather than say the directions and learn new chants, listen to pagan music or tell stories. Someone may report on an investigation into some topic of interest and we discuss it. We are creating a group Shadow Book and we have personal sharings, and always include cakes and wine (nonalcoholic!) .
Our usual meeting place is a private, homey, easy to find office on the Green in Lebanon. We also have another meeting place in Canaan that is very private and in the woods with fire circle. We welcome curious beginners, recovering Catholics, Protestants and Jews, and experienced Pagans in all traditions. Each adds a special flavor to the brew and brings their own unique gifts. If you feel to, bring an object for the altar we set up each time.
Please bring: magick, stories to share, check-ins, ritual contributions and readings, words to honor a particular one of the five directions you are pulled to these days. Ideas for this year: things to delve into, books to read, field trips to make, and more. We'd love to hear about your pagan roots and evolution.
