On the Horizon

If you live in or around New Hampshire, I wanted to give you a heads up about some things that are going on if you are a Pagan or just an open minded individual who would like to expand your horizons.

First, I wanted to suggest that if you are like me and "hunger" for activity with people of like mind, you may want to consider friending the following organizations on Facebook: Temple of Witchcraft (founded by the wonderful author Christopher Penczak), Myths & Maidens (a metaphysical shop in Manchester NH which offers classes and special rituals), In the Lap of the Goddess Productions, and New England Pagans and Witches.  All of these organizations offer events and rituals for Pagans (or people who are just open minded and curious) to attend.  Its a good way to network and put yourself out there in the community.

I also recommend requesting to be added to the newsletter of Misty Meadows Herbal Center in Durham NH.  Their website address is: http://www.mistymeadows.org .  They too have wonderful classes, geared more toward herbalism, reiki and natural healing.  They also have rituals that are open to the general public.

Temple of Witchcraft, though their Sabbat rituals are open to the public, its important to note that their full moon rituals are only open to Temple members who are attending their seminary school.  This isn't always obvious in their event listings.

That being said, here are some wonderful events going on this month, most of which I intend to go to, and I'm looking forward to attending and I hope to see some familiar faces and meet some new people.....

Full Moon Ritual offered by Lap of the Goddess Productions: Sunday, January 8, 2012 at 7PM. This is taking place at the Cambridge Masonic Hall in Cambridge MA

Temple Book Club offered by Temple of Witchcraft. Sunday January 8th at 1:00 PM in Salem, NH. Join us for discussion of a new book each week. This month's book will be The Cauldron of Memory by Raven Grimassi. Contact pisces@templeofwitchcraft.org for more information. 

Class and Open Circle on Songspells offered by the North Shore Witches on Meetup.  Sunday January 8, 2012 at 6PM at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Haverhill MA.   Music plays an important role in magick, even when not in a formal ritual setting. It is not just theater used to set the mood. It is a way of expressing honor and connecting to the spirits. A re-commitment to music can bring sacredness not only to rituals, but also into daily life and home, bringing you back in balance. When you reflect on the magick, energy and wonderful people that music can bring into your life, you will be truly thankful! As usual, class begins at 6PM with Open Circle to begin at 7:30PM

Pagan Pizza Party at La Festa Brick and Brew in Dover NH: Thursday, January 12, 2012 at  7PM.  I may attend this since its on my birthday, I have never been and have no other plans that day.  This event is put on by the wonderful Deirdre Hebert, a DJ on PaganFM.

Women's Circle offered by Temple of Witchcraft. January 14th at 7:00 PM in Salem, NH. All women are welcome to join the Cancer Ministry in "Dreaming in the Bear Cave" during this month's women's circle, a powerful ritual not to be missed! Contact cancer@templeofwitchcraft.org for more information.

Witch in the Woods offered by Temple of Witchcraft. January 15th, 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The Taurus Ministry offers our "Witch in the Woods" nature walks and meditations. This month we'll explore a portion of the trails of the Musquash Conservation Area in Londonderry, NH. Email wren@templeofwitchcraft.org for more information.

Prosperity Ritual offered by Myths and Maidens in Manchester NH. January 21st at 7:00 PM in Manchester, NH.  for this free public ritual to secure prosperity in the new year! Facilitated by Aurielle.

Reiki Healing Magick class & Healing Circle offered by Temple of Witchcraft. January 25th at 7:00 PM in Salem, NH. Reiki and magick work well together. They both connect to the universal consciousness and the divine, but in their own ways. This class examines how to combine Reiki with magick, rituals, and meditation to help empower you and your clients. The class is a good introduction to those who have not taken a Reiki attunement and helpful for those who have. The class is from 7 PM to 8:30 PM for a $15 donation, followed by a short break before the healing ritual from 8:45 PM to 9:30 PM, which is free and open to all.

Queer Spirit Circle offered by Temple of Witchcraft. January 26th at 7:00 PM in Salem, NH. The Temple's Gemini Ministry is responsible for the "Queer Mysteries". Gemini lead minister Steve Kenson invites men who love men-whether identifying as gay or bisexual-to attend this inaugural meeting of the Temple's Queer Spirit Circle to explore those mysteries from the male perspective. Email gemini@templeofwitchcraft.org for more information.

I hope to see you around :)
