In communities throughout Europe, stretching back as far as 2500 years or more, folks have gathered during the dark season, donned grotesque masks and bestial costumes, and wildly cavorted through their towns to drive out evil spirits and the doldrums of winter.

Bring your furs, antlers, horns, masks, grotesque costumes, rattles, drums, bells, and brooms.

We Are Aradia Ritual
These are the times we were made for. The Goddess Diana saw her people were suffering from tyranny. She sent her daughter Aradia to earth to teach us the secrets of witchcraft so that we could rise up. We don’t need a savior. We must save ourselves. We need to be the Witches. In this pan-traditional ritual we will call on Aradia to once again bring her wisdom to us to fight the tyranny. This ritual is a call to action; it is time to empower everyone who needs it. "For now as witches we all shall rise!"

Using techniques developed by the Deep Well ~ Great Heart Society, in this ritual we will explore the empowering magick of revelation, witnessing, acceptance, and connection.

Do you yearn for hope and healing? We are unity in diversity…a constellation of stars sailing across the sky.

Through community and ecstatic ritual, chanting, and trancework, we call to the stars and the depths of our shadows, to the magic burning in our veins. Doors close @ 10 min.
