Welcome to The Spring Celebration of BELTANE!
Join us for a fun and festive afternoon to celebrate the season of spring, fertility and Love!. Our Pagan ancestors celebrated sexuality and harmonious union symbolized by dancing around the maypole with ribbons. In modern times the symbolism is still intact!
We gather outside on private land in Santee at the edge of 70 acres of Mother Nature. During our afternoon together we will be joining in 3 separate breakaway workshops to honor the Sacred Masculine, Sacred Feminine and the fluidity of gender AKA The Androgyny, the union of opposites. All these expressions live within each of us! We will craft lovely head wreathes (with or without flowers)share ritual and the Maypole dance. We close our celebration with drumming, dancing and more celebration
