Khalil Gibran said in The Prophet:

“Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.”

Come and join us on November 8, 2014, beginning at 6:00 PM (ritual begins at 7:00 PM), as we peer over the precipice of the Unknown and use music to bring forth and dance with our ancestors, our family, and our friends who have passed on before us. We will travel from the land of the living into the realms of the Underworld in order to meet with and leave messages for our loved ones who have moved to their next great adventure.

We will travel down to the Otherworld Circle over uneven ground, so be sure to wear appropriate shoes.

Following ritual there will be a potluck dinner with the dead so bring something you would like to share with the other attendees, both corporeal and ethereal.

As part of our public outreach program, we are collecting new, unwrapped toys to be donated to the Toys for Tots organization. If you are donating a video game or DVD it must be new and in its original shrink-wrap, so bring something for those less fortunate children.

There will also be a few vendors to buy neat stuff from as well as a bake sale and a raffle to assist in raising money for Blackberry Circle for future open rituals.

Remember, bring:

  • Yourself (and anyone else you would like to corrupt)
  • Money (cash) for raffle or to buy from the vendors
  • A sense of humour (humours will be for sale at the gate)
  • Food to share at feast
  • A camp chair or other chair to rest your weary arse in
  • More sense of humour
  • And hell, go ahead and bring your kids, but if you don’t keep an eye on them they may be sacrificed (we’re joking folks, jeez!)

Open Circle, Charismatic, Evangelical Pagan Revival

With two Wiccanings, and a Handfasting

Join Blackberry Circle for an old fashioned, evangelical, charismatic, southern revival…

Pagan style.

Think of Ray Steven’s “Mississippi Squirrel Revival,” except I heard there might be stuffed beavers there in the stead.

Dress your Sunday, go to Pagan worship best, and since this is the south, big hats are a must for you wimmin folk.

In addition to the “holly yew yas!” and the “Praise the god of your choice” revival, we will also be having a double Wiccanning of little Owen and little Madalyn as well as the handfasting of Keith and Lynette.

A potluck feast will be following the ritual(s), so bring something you would like to share with others.

Also, hopefully there may be some drumming afterward, so if you have a noise maker and the ability to make some semblance of music, bring that sucker along as well.

Remember, bring:

  • Yourself (and anyone else you would like to corrupt)
  • A sense of humour (humours will be for sale at the gate)
  • Food to share at feast
  • Dress your Sunday, Southern, go to Pagan meeting best
  • A camp chair or other chair to rest your weary arse in
  • More sense of humour
  • And hell, go ahead and bring your kids, but if you don’t keep an eye on them they may be sacrificed (we’re joking folks, jeez!)

As a part of our public outreach and helping the community, each ritual will have a theme of sorts where we will collect for those in need within the general community.

For this Mabon ritual we are collecting school supplies to be donated to the Montgomery County Women’s Shelter so the children in the shelter can go to school with the supplies they need.

Here are some of the supplies they need:

  • Folder pocket (non-plastic, w/ brads)
  • Filler paper (wide rule, 500 count)
  • Pencil (#2 wood)
  • Crayons (Crayola, 24 count)
  • Scissors (Fiskar, 5”, sharp)
  • Ziploc bags (reclosable, quart size)
  • Kleenex tissue (120 count, box)
  • Copy paper (ream/500 sheets, white)
  • Erasers (pencil cap)
  • Pencil bag (nylon, clear top w/ grommet, 7-1/4” x 10-1/4”)
  • Index cards (3×5, 100 count, ruled)
  • Spiral notebook (80 sheets)
  • Binder (zippered, examples: 5 Star, First Gear, 3 ring, 2” ring)
  • Hand sanitizer (12 oz.)
  • Composition book (not spiral)
  • Erasers (1”x2”, pink)
  • Construction paper (assorted colors, 9” x 12”, 50 count)
  • Construction paper (assorted colors, 12” x 18”, 50 count)
  • Manila paper (9“x 12”, 50 count)
  • Manila paper (12“x 18”, 50 count)
  • Markers (Crayola)
  • Highlighter (yellow)
  • Protractor
  • Wipes (Lysol)

Also, we are assisting the local Amtgard group, Ironwood, with a food collection during the month of September. Non-perishable food items, or even cash, will be given to Ironwood for donation to local food banks.

And finally, we will be having a raffle at the ritual for items made or donated by our members. If you would like to participate in the raffle, please feel free to do so.
