  • Mabon at Ardantane

    Ardantane Campus

    Ardantane will host at the Celtic harvest festival of Mabon on Friday, September 25, and people are invited to gather at 6:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public, and will take place at the geodesic dome at Ardantane, a educational and retreat center located about seven miles south of Jemez Springs. Mabon marks the fruit and vegetable harvest, and is known to many as "The Pagan Thanksgiving." It follows the grain harvest of Lughnassad, and precedes the meat harvest and commemoration of ancestors at Samhain. The program will include music, singing, gratitude exercises, stories from mythology, and of course a potluck feast afterwards. Though not all of us have a harvest from gardens or orchards, we can still celebrate our personal successes at home, at work, and in our arts, crafts, and hobbies. We will also discuss and celebrate the creative harvests of people worldwide who are taking bold action to address problems of hunger, disease, conflict, and other challenges. Participants are urged to wear comfortable and festive clothing, and to being a potluck dish and/or beverage to share. There is no charge for the event, although donations are always welcome to defray expenses. In an effort to reduce Ardantane’s environmental impact, we ask that if you can, please bring your own feast gear: plate, bowl, cup, and flatware. This will reduce a lot of paper waste! Thank you! We gather at 6pm to mark the fall equinox. Bring a potluck dish to share afterwards, and call[masked] for directions.

  • Samhain at Ardantane

    Ardantane Campus

    Samhain (pronounced “SOW-en”) is the Celtic Pagan feast day honoring our ancestors and those who have passed during the preceding year. It will be commemorated on Friday, October 30, 2020 at the Ardantane campus, south of Jemez Springs. Participants will gather about 6:30 pm and the ritual will begin at 7:00. Everyone is invited to bring a photograph or token of your beloved dead, or anyone who is no longer with us whom you would like to honor. These will be placed on an Altar of Remembrance, and we ask that you remember to take them home after the ceremony. Samhain traditionally takes place on October 31st, though at Ardantane we schedule the commemoration on the nearest Friday. However, it is not the same as All Saints’ Day, and certainly not Halloween, which is a modern secular and commercial event. It bears some resemblance to the Mexican Day of the Dead, though arising from a different religion and culture. The evening’s program will recognize the loss we feel, but also celebrate the lives of those lost to us, and our belief that they continue on another plane of existence, and that we will be reunited with them in time. In an effort to reduce Ardantane’s environmental impact, we ask that if you can, please bring your own feast gear: plate, bowl, cup, and flatware. This will reduce a lot of paper waste! Thank you! There is no charge for this event, although voluntary donations are gratefully accepted to defray costs. Participants are invited to dress in whatever way feels appropriate, and to bring beverages and dishes to share in the potluck dinner that follows the ritual.

  • Yule at Ardantane

    Ardantane Campus

    The winter solstice, called "Yule" by many of our European ancestors, will be marked on Friday, December 18, at the Ardantane campus south of Jemez Springs. The public is welcome to join in celebration with song, stories, and feasting. The solstice marks the shortest day and longest night of the year; every day thereafter brings a little more light as the Earth continues its journey around the sun. The holiday is considered to be the "rebirth of the sun" in Pagan and astrological circles, and was adopted by the early Christian church as the season to mark the birth of their divine Son. Our celebration will include decorating the traditional Yule tree, carol singing, stories, perhaps some wassailing (toasts and blessings with hot, mulled cider), and a potluck feast after the candlelight ritual. We will celebrate the returning Light in all its forms, gathering together with our hopes and dreams for the new year. In an effort to reduce Ardantane’s environmental impact, we ask that if you can, please bring your own feast gear: plate, bowl, cup, and flatware. This will reduce a lot of paper waste! Thank you! We will gather at about 6:30 pm and begin the celebration at 7:00. Participants are invited to wear festive clothing and bring a potluck dish or beverage to share. This is a family-friendly event. Although there is no charge for attendance, donations to maintain Ardantane are always appreciated (and tax-exempt). Anyone needing directions or more information is invited to call Amber at (505)[masked]
