December 18, 2021 @ 4:00 pm – 9:00 pm EST
Celebrate the Winter Solstice with Weavers of the Web with a ritual to welcome in the renewal of the light and to exchange gifts. We will be at the church for this ritual, so be mindful of space and bring extra chairs for your group if you can. We will be asking for proof of Covid-19 vaccinations in order to protect the vulnerable amongst our clergy and guests.
Celebrate the best of 2021, leave the worst behind to be transformed by the flames of the Yule log, and get a glimpse of things to come before receiving your happy Yule gift from Santa. Bring a gift to exchange that is recycled (i.e., from your home, not purchased). For those of you who are not planning to come in-person, we are offering the ability to purchase a “gift ticket” for $5 and we will send you a small gift in the mail that you can open during the online ritual. In addition to your gift, you’ll also want to have a tree or something symbolic to decorate, along with decorations for it; a candle or Yule log; runes for divination (visit this page for a free online rune drawing if you don’t have your own), and cakes and ale. If you would like to donate any of the materials we need for our ritual, please contact us by email or phone call to arrange drop-off/pick-up, or you can order them from our Amazon wish list.. If you wish to stay after the ritual to break bread, please bring your own food and drink; we will have space for several socially-distanced tables.
We will plan to cast circle at 5pm Eastern, but our doors and Zoom call will open at 4pm while we prepare. Our ritual will also be available by Zoom, YouTube livestream, and Patreon, as usual, so everybody can enjoy the ritual in whichever manner calls to them best. (Click on the links above for online access.) Everyone will have a chance to honor their ancestors in our ritual. As a friendly reminder, all observers of WISE-tradition rituals must be participants within the circle, and all are welcome.
For those of you who are planning to attend online, you’ll want to have your own chalice and beverage ready for the ritual as well as your own cakes and ale. If you have a safe space, light your own fire or a candle. Setting up your ritual space at home with incense, candles, and your regular altar supplies will help enhance your experience.
Attendance to our sabbat rituals is always free! Donations help to cover the cost of our space and materials, and help grow our Temple fund. You can help out by bringing cash, donating via PayPal, or become a subscribing member through Patreon.
Again, circle cast will be promptly at 5:00 pm Eastern.
Weavers of the Web is located inside Keys To Manifestation in the Oakland Center on Center Street between Saginaw and Oakland in downtown Lansing. Enter through the main double doors at the center of the front of the building.
