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 the Sublime Elm, 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,
