Yule Solstice Ritual

  • December 21, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • House Of Earth And Air

Celebrate the longest night, the beginning of the solar progression, and the eternal struggle of the Oak and Holly King in a mountain setting. This is an evening ritual, and recommended primarily for adults Snacks and drinks will be provided, but please plan on having dinner prior to attending. It will be held at a private residence. Strip maps and instructions will be provided at a later date, but plan on driving about 10 minutes west of Manitou Springs on US 24 to the location. Ritual garb, although not required is highly recommended. It is an indoor ceremony.


UPDATE:

Our Yule ritual has moved locations from west of Manitou to north central Colorado Springs, hosted at the House of Earth And Air. It is inhabited by four legged family members and there will be incense used during the rite. Please e-mail us if you still need the address.


We are delighted to celebrate the ending of the Dark Time with ritual, festivities, spiced wine and cider, treats, and merry making. Indoor ritual will be followed by the lighting of the Yule log and general frolicking.


It's not too late to RSVP, one and all are welcome!


Blessings,

Kelly

    My very favorite part of the night was looking around all the folks gathered in the house, and later in circle, and just basking in the energy of this amazing tribe we are building. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for attending, participating, and sharing yourselves!

    I am so happy that I have found such an incredible group of people to share this journey with. I was apprehensive about coming out from being a solitary witch and allowing my children to meet others who share our beliefs. Now I feel content with my decision to reach out because I have found all of you. This ritual was beautiful. Merry Yule and Blessed be!

    Alrighty folks, change of plans! I'll be sending out an email with the address to all RSVP'ed. It will be at the House of Earth and Air again for convenience of those working that day as well as folks driving down from Denver rather than the location originally considered past Manitou.

    Being held in what part of town? Is this in a home of smokers? Will there be scented candles, incense, Or smudge used? If it's safe for me, then I can give ride to Manitou folks. Cheers!

      I know that the person hosting the ritual, Chris Thomas, and his wife, are not smokers, but I do not know about scented candles, smudges or incense. They also have two dogs, as I recall.

    Greetings to everyone. I apologize for not making the most recent meetups. Working 2nd shift, weeknights are out for me I am driving to Alabama for the holidays, so I am going to miss the Yule gathering. Totally bummed, but I only go see family 1-2 time a year. Hope all of your holiday season are joy-filled.

    I know I haven't been around much but my work does keep me busy though out the week. Most of the classes and get togethers are during the work days. Sorry about that. I don't know if you remember me or not. Anyway I hope to be there if there isn't a snowstorm and I can find my way to the location. Just send me the location. Thanks Tracy

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
