Lughnassadh 2008Tue, August 5, 2008 - 2:18 PM
Tiracai's birthday on August 1st was celebrated by attending a concert at the Lincoln Center seeing Celtic virtuoso Eileen Ivers.
On Saturday August 2nd, my vision of having a "Pagans in the Park" Lughnassadh Festival at Treehenge became manifest. We had 5 different circles present a ritual or activity. CUUPS represented by Collea Devi started it off with good intentions for the harvest. Kelly and the Sun Tribe did a marvelous meditation laying on the grass in the full heat of the Sun, revering and learning. Greeley circles led us in some wonderful ritual setting intentions with a formula of herbs and trees. The Treehenge Druidic Circle did our formal ceremony with 37 in attendance. We had a wonderful potluck, followed by Sara Rain doing a large family friendly ritual which included the very fun Goddess Tag game. I was very proud of our community and this larger networking of the independent open circles.
On Sunday we went to the Fort Collins IRish Festival and saw the Glengarry Bhoys and The Elders to top off the week.
