EarthSpirit Eastern Massachusetts
Annual Open Beltaine Ritual

 

EarthSpirit Invites You to Celebrate the Spirit of the Season!

Beltaine ~ Saturday, April 30, 2016

Beltaine is the midpoint of Spring, when we gather together to reconnect after the Winter.

The Annual Clean Up and Maypole Circle will be held at:
Greenwood Park, Middlesex Fells, Stoneham/Medford, Massachusetts
Directly across from the Stone Zoo

Beltane

We are returning to our great location this year with plenty of parking and across the street from the Stone Zoo.

We'll meet at 11 AM for the annual "spring cleaning". By cleaning up trash and removing the leaves from the new grass, we come together to do something to help the Earth. Magically we use it as a symbol to clean away our winter debris and reconnect with the sacred ground. Children are encouraged to attend. (Extra trash bags, gloves, and tools always help in removing any winter-accumulated trash and debris!)

We'll begin the ritual at noon

During the clean up, we add to the symbolic Winter Spirit with some of the debris we collect. So come early to be a part of this.

We also have flower wreaths to make, bubbles to blow, and always encourage drumming and connecting.

After the Maypole, we'll have a potluck picnic and spend time enjoying each others' company. Please bring a dish (with ingredients labeled) to share, and if you can, your own plate and utensils so we don't have to use disposables.

Come Celebrate Spring!

Flower Wreath

We'll pass a hat for small donations of $5-$10.
