We put together this sacred circle in 2009. Since, we have had at least two rituals per month. Celebrating the Esbats {dark & full moons} and all Sabbats!. At the Circle of Sublime Elms, some have practiced all of their life and others began practicing here. The members are all-embracing with many abilities & attributes; offering vast enthusiasm & passion to share each others paths. We go all-out to encourage participation and encourage each to prepare and promote their paths with a different theme for most every circle. Some examples are at Yule we incorporated Hanukah, January’s Wolf Moon the Tri-fold Goddess, Imbolc/Dark Moon with Native American influences, February’s full moon for Celtic Ogham tree alphabet & Goddess Diana. The March dark moon with a Draconian theme and at the March full moon focused on the Egyptian paths. This makes our circle unique for inviting all to share their wonderful gifts and pagan paths. We also offer seating for the curious who are somewhat hesitant, timid, or inexperienced to enter the Magikal circle of ritual magic!

Our main purpose is to become close friends and to do open circles. The plan is to assist each other in practicing and learning the Craft. To fulfill love, honor, and respect not only for The God and Goddess; but to Love each other and all, including GAIA ~ Our Mother Earth.

A circle is a safe, sacred space that we create. It is "between" the worlds, the magickal and the mundane worlds. It marks a "place that is not a place, in a time that is not a time". What we mean by this is that it is sort of a nexus, a place that can touch and reach all other places and people in time and space. by Lady Bridget, © 1999

The New Age is in fact a free-flowing spiritual movement; a network of believers and practitioners who share somewhat similar beliefs and practices, which they add on to whichever formal religion that they follow.

New World Order As the Age of Aquarius unfolds. This will be a utopia in which there is world government, and end to wars, disease, hunger, pollution, and poverty. Gender, racial, religious and other forms of discrimination will cease. People's allegiance to their tribe or nation will be replaced by a concern for the entire world and its people.

Channeling is a method similar to that used by Spiritualists in which a spirit of a long dead individual is conjured up. However, while Spiritualists generally believe that one's soul remains relatively unchanged after death, most channelers believe that the soul evolves to higher planes of existence. Channelers usually try to make contact with a single, spiritually evolved being. That being's consciousness is channeled through the medium and relays guidance and information to the group, through the use of the medium's voice.

Crystals are materials which have their molecules arranged in a specific, highly ordered internal pattern. This pattern is reflected in the crystal's external structure which typically has symmetrical planar surfaces. Many common substances, from salt to sugar, from diamonds to quartz form crystals. Crystals possess healing energy.

Meditating is a process of blanking out the mind and releasing oneself from conscious thinking. This is often aided by repetitive chanting of a mantra, or focusing on an object.

Divination The use of various techniques to foretell the future, including I Ching, Pendulum movements, Runes, Scrying, Tarot Cards.

Astrology The belief that the orientation of the planets at the time of one's birth, and the location of that birth predicts the individual's future and personality. Holistic Health This is a collection of healing techniques which have diverged from the traditional medical model. It attempts to cure disorders in mind, body and spirit and to promote wholeness and balance in the individual. Examples are acupuncture, crystal healing, homeopathy, iridology, massage, various meditation methods, polarity therapy, psychic healing, therapeutic touch, reflexology, etc.

With Love & Light Always,

Full Moon in Virgo: This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between work and service, practicality and impracticality, criticism and acceptance. With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic “illumination” occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves with gratitude and to let things out of our systems.

On this February Hunger Ice Moon, We ask the Old Ones for help in planning our future. The growing light gives us hope, but there are still hard days of winter ahead. Even with the icy grip still upon the world, you feel the life force awakening and know that your life must begin to quicken. Many things can unfold this year, but which way should they go? The sabbat of Imbolc and the month of February are times of divination. This is the time of the ‘seer’ within.

BANISHING RITUAL CLASS

Please bring a pack of stick incense with you. Sandalwood would be a good choice for an all around use.

This class is for people who want to be able to understand and use the magickal principles that are in the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram along with other standard ritual symbolism. We will demystify what it is all about. We are going to take it apart like a mechanic takes apart a car and see how it works. Then we are going to make a car that goes and that can be hopped up later as you become comfortable.

Alexander will go through each phase of the ritual so that you understand the symbolism and visualizations that are contained in it. By the end of the class everyone will be able to do a functional banishing ritual and understand its importance and its applications.

By the end of the class everyone will have a grasp of the following:

Symbolism of the pentagram

How to draw the pentagram

How to visualize the pentagram.

Symbolism of the circle and its relationship to the Sun

Names of power and what they are

The elemental quarters and when and how to use them.

Standard Archangelic and Elemental king correspondences and how to use them.

How to perform a functional banishing ritual.

IN MEMORY & HONOR OF RAVEN GRIMASSI ~ April 12, 1951 - March 10, 2019

In Memory & Honor of Raven Grimassi as a Pagan scholar with over 40 years of research and study. He's an award-winning author of over 20 books on Wicca, Witchcraft, and Inner Mystery teachings. His titles include The Witches' Craft, Italian Witchcraft, Witchcraft: A Mystery Tradition, Spirit of the Witch, Crafting Wiccan Traditions, Grimoire of the Thorn-Blooded Witch, Communing with the Ancestors, and many more for sale right here on this page. And you can have any book, DVD or CD personally autographed, of course, at no charge

Raven also co-created and co-authored the two oracle kits The Well Worn Path and The Hidden Path with Stephanie Taylor, illustrated by pagan artist Mickie Mueller. Raven is an initiate of several Witchcraft traditions including Strega, Brittic, Pictish Gaelic, and Celtic Traditionalist. He is also a recognized expert on Italian Witchcraft and the foremost authority on the works of Charles Godfrey Leland in this particular field.

Raven lived in New England with his wife and divided his time between writing and co- directing the Ash, Birch & Willow training system of Old Ways Witchcraft. Having been born on the festival day of the goddess Ceres (Patron of the Mysteries) Raven was devoted to preserving and teaching the Mystery Tradition of pre-Christian Europe.

WICCA
Grimassi became involved with Wicca in 1969. He created his own system of witchcraft known as the "Aradian Tradition" ten years later, publishing it in print beginning in 1981. He is currently the co-directing elder of the Ash, Birch and Willow tradition. In 1994, the new age publisher Llewellyn Publications accepted his manuscript for Ways of the Strega, which was reprinted the following year as Italian Witchcraft: The Old Religion of Southern Europe .

STREGHERIA
Reports that Grimassi claims to belong to a "family tradition" of religious witchcraft has opened him to criticism.

Professor Sabina Magliocco, a critic of some of Grimassi's claims, however points out that "Grimassi never claims to be reproducing exactly what was practiced by Italian immigrants to North America; he admits Italian-American immigrants "have adapted a few Wiccan elements into their ways". After personally meeting Grimassi, Professor Magliocco writes in her letter to the Pomegranate Reader's Forum:

I had the pleasure of meeting Raven Grimassi during the summer of 2001, unfortunately after the final draft of my article had already been submitted to The Pom. He was very gracious and helpful to me. From information he revealed during our interview, I can say with reasonable certainty that I believe him to have been initiated into a domestic tradition of folk magic and healing such as I describe in my article.

AWARDS
Grimassi won "Book of the Year" and "First Place - Spirituality Book" from the Coalition of Visionary Retailers in 1998 for his book The Wiccan Mysteries, and his book the Encyclopedia of Wicca & Witchcraft was also awarded "Best Non-Fiction".

His publisher Weiser Books, produced the author's biography, Horns of Honor.
