Chant Albums From The Assembly of the Sacred Wheel

The Assembly of the Sacred Wheel’s chant albums were created with the intention that the chants be simple, powerful, and easily performed by individuals and ritual groups. They are mostly a cappella with some percussion and an occasional instrument to ease there use in covens, circles, groves, etc. Most of the chants do not require a wide singing range and the harmonies, while pretty, are not necessary.

WITCHING HOUR: Along with her friend Kenna O’Rourke, Arthur is the co-host of the iTunes podcast “Witching Hour,” in which they discuss contemporary witches in modern times, the idea of a witch, what witches mean for femininity and womanhood, and how witches are portrayed in pop culture. “We watch really old ’80s movies about witches, like ‘Teen Witch,’ and talk about that, or a H. P. Lovecraft short story about a witch,” she says.

“The Nature Of The Divine” and “Company Of The Great Ones” with Michael Smith

February 25 @ 12:00 pm4:00 pm

A benefit for the New Alexandrian Library.

General Admission20.00 USD
ASW Members15.00 USD
Students & Seniors15.00 USD
Your eTicket will be emailed after payment to your PayPal email address.

Class “The Nature Of The Divine” (2 hrs)

Much is said, written, discussed, and frankly, avoided concerning the Divine nature and humans’ relationships to Them. In this class we will examine one system of relating the various God and Goddess forms, the Divine Nature that enlivens them, and how we relate to Them. We will explore both practical questions, such as ‘when I hear the voice of the Goddess in my mind, how does She do that?’ and highly metaphysical questions, such as ‘Who do the Gods and Goddess worship?’

Ritual “Company Of The Great Ones” (1 hr)

In this ritual we will anchor the presences of six Great Ones using two triads: Maiden, Mother, & Crone and Youth, Father, & Sage. After calling them to our circle, we will honor their places in our lives. Then we will listen with our souls for whatever we must hear. We will end with an offering of thanks. Note: This ritual is not for the faint of heart or those that are ungrounded.

Michael Smith, Gwydion Stormcrow, has been practicing Wicca, Magick, and various esoteric disciplines since 1989. He has been active in the pagan community since 1993 when he became a member of the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel (ASW), a Wiccan organization in the Mid-Atlantic region. He is an Elder of the ASW and and formally served as High Priest of Coven of the Rowan Star, a coven in that Tradition. He is also involved with the Tradition’s New Alexandrian Library.

Couldn’t make it to the big ritual that had been planned for today due to lousy roads near me. Bob has a miserable cold and didn’t want to share it, so we improvised and participated from afar.

I truly missed being with my Circle of Capricorn sisters and brothers.


Sharing the Sun
