Lughnasadh / Lammas / Harvest (Drum Circle)

Lughnasadh / Lammas / Harvest (Ritual and Drum Circle)

Date: Saturday, August 3, 2013

Our celebrations consist of 2 parts. First there is a drum circle from 7 until 8 (, and then a participatory ritual from 8 until 10 ( You can go to one, the other, or both.

People can come and go as they please for the drum circle, but we hope that people who arrive for the ritual will stay until the end.

Time: Doors open for the drum circle at 7 pm.

People should arrive for the ritual by 8 pm so we can get started shortly after. Once the ritual starts, if you must arrive late, please enter quietly and wait to be let into the circle.

Location: The beautiful MIT Chapel, on the MIT campus in Cambridge, MA at Mass Ave & Amherst St., MIT Building W15 (

Price: Free, but suggested donated of $5.

In February our seed lay dormant. In March we planted it with intention and saw it sprout. In May, our dreams started to take on physical form. In June we reached our pinnacle and stood midway between planting and harvesting.

Now is the time of the First Harvest. We give thanks for the Harvest and Earth's bounty and honor the sacrifice of the spirit of the grain.

This is an open public ritual. It is intended both for those curious about Paganism and for practicing Pagans. All participants are equally welcome.

This event is drug and alcohol free.

Live music will also be provided by Martin Case and the Lee (

The MIT Chapel (W15) ( is the cylindrical building with an odd spiky thing on top near the MIT Student Center. Get to 77 Mass. Ave. on the side opposite the MIT entrance with the pillars and walk west, away from the pillars, towards dorm row -- the chapel will be on your left. If you get to Kresge Auditorium (the building that looks as if you could ski off it), you've gone too far. If you notice a large inflatable grub-like thingy to your left, you have definitely gone much too far.

Parking is available in the Chapel Turnaround: "Parks 20 cars and is for use with Chapel events. Turnaround is located on Amherst Street just after the Chapel." (

Future events:

11/2, Samhain / Remember
12/7, Yule / Begin

    Parking is in the Chapel Turnaround right by the Chapel and we have it starting at 6.

    In the link , it shows you a picture of it. It's the empty, curved part, not that part where a car is shown.

    Is parking IN that unmarked area or just in marked spots on st?
    How early to get space? I may bring some large dununs so parking matters.
