Rituals for 2019 – Save the dates

Ritual schedule and planning dates for 2019

The Ritual Planning Cell met recently to dream and plan for the year ahead.

After a bit of magic, a review of community feedback, and an examination of our own capacity, we’ve created a schedule for the year that we hope will honor the commitments we’ve made to one another, meet the needs of community, and be sustainable moving forward.

This includes hosting rituals on the Solstices and Equinoxes and holding space for community to gather in other ways. Below are the dates and times for planning meetings, rituals, and events planned for 2019.
