Unity Church of the Hills, Austin, Texas
9905 Anderson Mill Rd., Austin, Texas 78750
For countless moons we've gathered here, to cast our magics under dark, betwixt time and between two moons, come with us to worship, hark! By cauldron, fire, and pillar stone, we call our kin to meet with us. Here at the center of the world, we honor our grandmothers close and deep. The shinning gods accept our rites, and bless us with bounty keeps. From the edge to the center and back again, the sidhe folk come to collect their due.
What we're doing:
We are performing Indo-European folk magics in preparation for the month to come. We perform charms, poetry, divinations, spells, chanting, and worship pacts with spirits and gods. Bring an charm, poem, and offering to an otherworldly entity, be it god, spirit, or honored dead. Or just come as you are and observe.
7:00pm — Class (Ritual Steps 12 & 13: Kindred Offerings, Main Sacrifice.)
7:30pm — Round Robin / Ritual
-This month we will be located at the labyrinth towards the back parking lot behind Unity Church of the Hills.
-Before ritual, Chris Godwin will lead a short class/discussion about the «Kindred Offerings» and «Main Sacrifice» parts of ritual. The function of those steps and a practice run through of the songs we sing during those parts.
-Before ritual we do a group introduction we call Round Robin, where everyone can tell a bit about themselves.
-Within ritual we will be calling Celtic deities to aid us in our working.
-There will a time for everyone to individually give to patron deities, passed loved ones, spirit guides, etc. (Need not be Celtic)
-There will be the occasional blessing of an expecting mother and child.
-Ritual ends around 8:15pm
-Restrooms are available until 8:30pm
-We have been known to have impromptu drum circles so feel free to bring a drum and/or other hand instruments.
-Kids of all ages are welcome. We only ask that you remove them from circle if they are being disruptive. Some kids are super entertained by ritual and some are bored to tears so first timers should definately be aware of this. Occassional low Q&A whispers between you and your child during ritual are not considered disruptive. =)
WHAT TO BRING:
If you'd like them to attend, bring a friend.
If you wish it, an offering for ancestor, deity, or spirit. (need not be Celtic).
A monetary grove love offering if able.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Most are in casual dress but ritual garb — robes, cloaks, etc. are welcomed. Please don't show up skyclad.
