Samhain – Grail of the Birch Moon and Tenders of the Earth Temple

Please join Grail of the Birch Moon and Tenders of the Earth Temple for an Open Samhain ritual.

In this rite, we ask the Great Ones to help us rid ourselves of any unnecessary baggage we carry around so that we step more lightly into the coming turns of the Great Wheel and, thus, more freely accomplish that which we set out to do.

Please bring a snack to share for post-ritual fellowship. Ritual wear encouraged but not required. This is a free event.Parking behind the building in unreserved spots only. Entrance at the back of the building & up the steps. Please use this Facebook event for all RSVP’s.

If you RSVP’d and find that your plans have changed, please update the event so we can plan accordingly for those who will be joining us.

Pagan librarians rescue books, preserve history | The Wild Hunt

Gypsy Sorcery and Fortune Telling by Charles Godfrey Leland [New Alexandrian Library].

Thanks to two Pagan-centric institutions — the New Alexandrian Library, located near Georgetown, Del., and the Adocentyn Research Library, a similar enterprise located in San Francisco’s East Bay — Pagans and the general public alike now have access to thousands of Pagan, metaphysical, and esoteric books and periodicals, including rare and out-of-print works. Both libraries continue to accept donations of Pagan and Pagan-related books.

He’s everywhere, and for good reason, he’s a a great teacher and an even better person. And there’s also that New Alexandrian Library project he’s a major part of. Ivo is amazing.
