About the Event
This Circle Includes:

- Meditation & Self Reflection
- Planting Seeds & Flora Crafting
- Group Sharing
Flora is the Roman Goddess of Flowers, one of several fertility goddesses with monuments to her in Italy, Spain, & Poland. Her name is derived from a proto-indo-european word meaning 'blossoming' & she can be seen in Spring blossoms all around us in May. For this reason, Flora is a key component in many May celebrations & rituals.
In the wheel of the year in Pagan tradition, May 1st is celebrated as Beltane. The celts divide the year into two seasons, not four, Winter (the dark half of the year) & Summer (the light half of the year). Beltane is on the edge of time, when Winter is over & Summer is about to begin. On Beltane, Witches celebrate all that is blossoming & the fresh new life on Earth we experience during the exuberance of Spring.
The Circle Way:
Circle welcomes us into a shape where we can sit together in all our differences, see each other eye to eye, listen, & be heard. Circle is a social art form. Once you've taken your seat, you're there & every person's level of engagement or lack thereof is noticeable. There is nowhere to hide or secretly check your phone. This intensified & intentional way of showing up creates deeper experiences & meaningful connections.
Circle offers space to:
- Take a breath.
- Focus on the people you're actually with.
- Fully experience the present moment.
All Are Welcome Here:
This event is open to all genders & queerities as Goddess is no more a woman than God is a man. The divine knows no separation. ☯️
