SCHEDULE

12:00 pm
Nature Matters: Connecting to Mother Earth in a Busy World - by Seba

This class will discuss ways in which we can reconnect to Nature, regardless of our schedules or habitat. As Pagans, such a connection is critical for balance and spiritual health. Come chat with us about some of the methods that our Tribe uses!

1:00 pm
Show and Tell - by skippy

Come "show" yourself and "tell" us about your path, experiences, and any other bits of personal information you might want to share with the community. This will be an informal discussion, with attendees surrounding the moderator in a circle. So, come, meet, and learn about your fellow pagans. Who knows, you might even make a friend or two if you're not careful!

2:00 pm
Beginner Dowsing and Pendulum Reading - by Eponaskia

In this class I will teach the basics of dowsing with the aid of a pendulum or even a heavy weighted object of the students' choosing.

2:30 pm
Church of the Spiral Tree's General Membership & Elections Meeting

A voting meeting for all active members of Church of the Spiral Tree. Interested non-members are also welcome to stop by and meet us!

Light Yoga & Meditation - by Beth

Join us for some gentle stretching and balance work. We will begin and end our practice with meditation, in order to reach a full mind/body connection. Please bring a mat (and extras, if you have them), water, and an open heart to guide your journey.

Reiki ( Healing Emotional and Mental Wounds) - by LaDeana C. Robinson

This class will teach you a short history of Reiki and how working with the energy for your heart chakra releases deep emotional and mental wounds from any past life.

Ten Reasons to (Not) Be Pagan - by Hephaestia

Paths cross, deviate, and intertwine, but how do you know a pagan path is for you? We'll be discussing ten talking points to give your hungry spiritual mind some good for thought, highlighting reasons why or why not the pagan path is for you. This class is excellent for newcomers to our community as it discusses general guidelines as well as etiquette.

Join us at our Main Ritual to celebrate the Equinox. The ritual is open to all.
