Report on Our Beltane Celebration
Great turn out! Over twenty people attended (some from this Meet Up site, many from our regular group which has been around since 1987). This  included our High Priestess Linda and High Priest Lawrence. It was a rousing ritual with a Shakespearian flavor in verse and costume. Lovely ladies and gallant gentlemen linked arms and the Energy rose high from our grounding in Mother Earth as we set an intention of Abundance and Joy for Spring time and the year ahead…

BELTANE is a celebration of spring. It is also a way of connecting with the Earth Mother very directly—the idea being that the sexual connection of those present flows their fertility to the earth herself encouraging growing things for good crops and to the women of the tribe as well. The priest and priestess are believed to become or at least represent the God and Goddess in their love making. The Great Rite was part of this celebration in ancient times and from it many children were born. Since their fathering was often questionable, they were considered children of the Gods. While Jewish and Christian traditions are considerably different, they agree in the belief that we are all sons and daughters of God and that the divine is within each of us.
