The ritual was really cool! Very similar to what I do at home as a solitary actually :) We called quarters, cast the circle, had ale and cakes, did a guided meditation, and then sent healing energy to those who needed it before closing the circle.
What I noticed was so different though was the amount of energy I could feel in the room! It was buzzing. Everything was so warm and full of light and energy and it was amazing! The people there were awesome and I would definitely like to join them again for their Beltane ritual!
I’m going to my first group ritual tonight! Wish me luck! I will let you all know how it goes :)
Now’s the time to gather supplies to create a crown of flowers for your Beltane celebration. Twist together green pipe cleaners (or color of your choice) to form a circle that will fit on your head. Take another pipe cleaner and form little arch like loops around the circle. Tuck fresh or silk flowers in the loops and secure with more pipe cleaners if needed. Tie ribbons down the back to create a beautiful waterfall of colors. Grab the streamers of your Maypole and dance a merry dance!!

Oh my gods this is perfect!!
I think I finally have a name for my craft. Not like I needed a name, but it’s helpful to know what’s important to me. I follow the path of the green witch and specialize in kitchen witchery. It’s what I’ve been drawn towards and it’s what I usually do. I focus all of my rituals and sabbats on food and I’m working on herbalism and feel a strong connection with nature. So ya! I wanted to share with you all.
Blessed be )O(
