What we're about

We are a tradition of Witchcraft based in the DC/NOVA/MD area. We put on public rituals for many of the sabbats as well as a number of classes on various Wiccan and Witchcraft-related topics. We are also a Wiccan tradition that people can participate in casually, or through the deeper path of initiation. All respectful individuals are welcome!

February 2023 Full Moon Esbat

Link visible for attendees

Join the Firefly House for a brief full moon esbat online.

We'll gather from 8pm Eastern to about 8:10 allowing folks to get online and get ready. It'll probably last about 20-30 minutes, and then folks who want to hang out and chat for a bit online can do so.

For a few full moons in a row now, we've used some sort of pathworking or guided meditation as the core of our ceremony. This time, we'd like to try something different. In some forms of Christianity there is a spiritual practice called lectio divina; literally: sacred reading. Typically, folks would use portions of the Bible or maybe the writing of an important theologian. But for us, those spiritual sources probably don't speak to us in the same way.

Instead, we'll be using a Pagan prayer or poem. We're not quite sure which one we'll use yet, but we'll put it on-screen so everyone can read it while we recite it a few times. More instructions will be provided during the event.

Instructions

Good news: you don't have to bring anything other than your attention to this one. This'll be the first time we try a ceremony like this, so we'll be very interested in your feedback at the end of it.
