Basic ritual for the Beginner

This is for the VERY NEW to this path, people. In other words never been to a public ritual, or read a book and want to know if, "I'm doing it rite." It is also a great way to get a refresher if you have been away from public ritual for a while.

It will be a very basic ritual class. This is for those of you that have questions like, "What do you mean by call the directions?"

It will be 4 hours long. It is designed to answer basic questions and give a modicum of comfort to those of you who are not sure or a little shy of trying something new.

These are some topics that I hope to touch on. If you have questions please bring them with you and I will try to answer as many as I can in the time that we have.

Calling Directions- what/why

Casting the Circle

Deity- Goddess/God

Grounding

Chanting

Workings

Widdershins/Deosil

Wheel of the Year- Sabbats vs esbats

Cakes and Wine (cakes and ale)

Opening the Circle/dismissing directions

I'm asking a donation of $5-10 to cover costs. Printing, space rental, cakes and wine(juice) etc.

No one will be kept away due to lack of funds

This class will be followed by a Potluck which will be followed by an Imbolc ritual as Feb. is the half way between the Solstice and the Equinox. By some Pagan calendars is the first day of Spring. It will be a good chance to put your new knowledge to good use.
