Celebrating Beltane, looking ahead to Summer Solstice

The VU Earth Spirituality Group gathered to celebrate Beltane on May 1 to mark the midpoint of the year and the beginning of the summer season. Beltane is a time to celebrate the fertility of the earth, and to dance around the maypole!
The ritual was an opportunity to rejoice in the warmth of the strengthening sun, in the joy of passion and fertility, and in gratitude for all of the earth’s blessings. This year we also tried a rather intricate pattern with the maypole which resulted in a lot of fun and laughter.
The Earth Spirituality Group holds rituals eight times a year to celebrate the equinoxes, solstices, and cross quarter days (midpoints between them). 
Our next ritual will be on the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, on June 20th at 7 pm, outside at VanU, weather permitting.
If you are interested in celebrating with us, please contact earthspirit[at]vanu[dot]ca.
