Rituals for 2018 – Save the dates!

Ritual schedule and planning dates for 2018

The Upper Mississippi River Reclaiming ritual planning cell has scheduled out the dates for this year’s rituals. Please mark your calendars so you won’t miss them.

Help us plan the rituals

We invite you to participate in ritual planning. Dates and locations are noted below each ritual.

Our community rituals are a place for seasoned priestesses to stay in touch with their craft and for new priestesses to learn and practice while safely held by community.

Your participation helps make our rituals sustainable.
