Beltane Witchery on Mt. Tabor
Saturday, May 4, 2019 @ 8pm
Witches! You are invited to come together on the dark moon at Mt. Tabor Park, an extinct volcano in southeast Portland. We will sing, chant, and hold a twilight ritual procession through the park. At nightfall, we’ll circle under the trees, and make offerings to the land and its spirits. Please share this information with your witch networks.
Who should come: Witches of all genders, ages and backgrounds, and those who love and support us are welcome.
What to bring: Please bring a safe source of soft illumination, whether a lantern, a solar light, or other enclosed and gentle light source. Bring small, organic, biodegradable offerings for the land spirits. This might be a tiny bottle of cream, spirits, or simple things that the birds and animals may consume, or can compost safely in the ground.
What to wear: Dress comfortably for the weather, including good shoes for walking outdoors on earth pathways. Wear your witchy finery, and feel free to wear a veil or a mysterious mask.
Physical logistics: The procession will involve about 30-40 minutes of slow but hilly walking on trails and paths.
RSVP: Please contact me to let me know you are coming. It will help to know how large the group will be.
Getting to the site: Meet at the bend in the road near the reservoir indicated by the red dot on the map shown below. It’s about 8-10 minutes on foot from the #15 Belmont St. bus stop at SE Belmont and SE 60th. Enter through the Salmon St. park entrance. We’ll gather at the hairpin turn in the road next to the oval reservoir. Look for a group of witches!
How do you find Mt. Tabor Park? Here’s a link to the Google Map.
Bus # 15, the Belmont St. bus, stops at SE Belmont and SE 60th. There is also parking in the park, along the sides of the road, and near the top of the park in a lot.
If you have questions, please contact Talasyn.
I look forward to meeting more of the witches of Portland.
Full Moon on the Labyrinth
Saturday, April 20, 2019: 7-8:30pm
Come walk an 11 circuit labyrinth under the gaze of the full moon. We’ll visit a local labyrinth off Stark Street, and will be outdoors for the whole time. Please dress for the weather, and come prepared to take a problem or question into the labyrinth in search of answers or insights. You are especially welcome if you’ve never walked a labyrinth before.
We’ll be walking as the sun sets, and will finish up in the liminal time of twilight. This can be a contemplative, mystical experience.
When we finish walking, we may step across the street for a glass of beer or cider afterwards at Belmont Station, 4500 SE Stark St. (21+ required).
Please RSVP if you plan to attend. I’m particularly interested in meeting you if you are a woman interested in the CauldronFire Witchcraft group that is forming.
