We Can Provide
CedarLight Grove offers various classes and workshops for attending members. We have many knowledgable Grove members from Reiki Practitioners and Masters, Fire Dancers, Web Developers, to Herbalists, Gardeners and Environmentalists. We also have scholars who love to read and talk about history. Classes and workshops are generally done during Lore Meetings on Sunday afternoons or on weeknights.
High Day Celebrations
For our High Rites, we gather around 3 or so (unless otherwise announced). We have a pre-ritual briefing about 30 minutes before the Rite. This briefing fills you in on what chants will be sung and the outline of the ritual. Ritual is usually around dusk, but in winter we try to have it a little earlier. All of our Rites are held outside, weather permitting. Snow, rain, heat, and mud do not keep us indoors. After ritual, we have a potluck feast and if the mood is right, drumming and dancing.
Spiritual Healing and Meditation
CedarLight Grove provides guided meditation, journey/path workings to help our connections with our allies. We teach Reiki classes when folks are interested. We have a couple very talented herbalists as well.
