These are co-created Dianic Wiccan Rituals for women only and are celebratory and participatory. We create sacred space by calling in the directions and elements and Goddesses. We journey, sing, drum, and have an enactment that helps express the meaning of the ritual. We cast personal spells and community spells, focusing our intentions for our good and the good of all. We usually allow time for your short, seasonally appropriate, creative offering (poem, song, dance, story), if you are so inspired. Vegetarian Potluck follows the ritual.
For our indoor Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox rituals (usually at Graton Community Center), doors open at 5:30 pm and the ritual starts at 6pm. Doors will be locked when the ritual starts, so please arrive on time! This facility is handicap accessible.
For Summer Solstice and Fall Equinox rituals outdoors in Kenwood, participants are welcome an hour or so earlier in order to take advantage of the beautiful, private, women-owned land – and swimming in the pond. Bring a towel, chair, clothes for changing weather, and a flashlight. We appreciate you being on time so that we can maintain the integrity of the sacred circle. The Summer Solstice starts at 6:00, Fall Equinox starts at 5:00. (Since this is private land we do not like to publish the location, but you can RSVP for directions.)
Please call BEFORE the day of the event for directions or information.
Suggested Donation $10-50. No one turned away for lack of funds. All women are welcome. Donations go directly to securing the space as well as purchasing ritual items; thank you for your support! You can also support Diana’s Grove by donating here, or by volunteering to help with rituals. Please contact us to sign up.
Please bring a prepared vegetarian potluck dish, utensils, rattles and shakers, networking materials (please take any leftover materials with you at the end of the night). Watch for the email announcement which might have you bring some other item for the ritual.
We try to be accommodating of our “scent”-sitive sisters, which means no smudging, limited candle burning, no perfumes.
Sometimes in the heat of a good drum jam, or the heat of the afternoon, there will be occasional (and optional) nudity.
