10am - 1:30pm Central time (UTC-6:00)
ONLINE at the Circle Sanctuary Facebook Page
Coordinated by Rev. Sharon
It is Beltane! The Earth warms under the sun’s caress and the world is new and bright again! We emerge from the darkness of a long difficult winter; our eyes drink in the green hills, budding branches and tender shoots on Sacred Land as we breathe deeply the fresh fragrance of radiant blossoms. Dance the maypole! Feel the heartbeat of the drum! And mark sacred moments of connection as we gather to celebrate the high energy of this most fertile season of potential and possibility. Merriment calls and magick is afoot!
