The Wolf Moon is an old name for the first full moon in January, coming from a time long ago when we listened to hungry wolf packs howling outside the village. One way we may have conquered our fear of a mysterious world was to invoke that which we most feared. We brought these entities into our midst in a safe circle, so that we could understand them, and maybe even talk with them. Ritual invocation helped us live in harmony with the world and avoid angering the powerful and terrifying entities we shared it with.
Now, when the howl of the wolf is rarely heard, and most believe the world is not so very mysterious, I think we can still benefit from these old practices. Invoking the spirit of Wolf while standing under the Wolf Moon can be a powerful experience, and though we no longer fear the wolf pack, there is much we can learn from them.
All are welcome to join us for this Circle which is held outdoors. An optional donation will assist in maintaining the gardens.
