SLPS participated in the Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable’s interfaith month by hosting an open full moon rite to the Norse Goddess Freyja. Held Sunday, February 21, 2016 from 7-9 at the Sugar Space in downtown Salt Lake, ten people gathered to see and participate in the Wiccan rite. The altar was decorated with bone runes, statues of the deities, flowers, and a drinking horn. A hand burned wooden slab of the rune Ingwas provided the perfect backdrop.

The society opened by invoking the Goddess Freyja and the All-father Odin. The song “Freya” by Kelliana on her album I Walk With the Goddess. The Goddess spoke to all those present and gave them advice for the next month to guide their lives. A rune was pulled for each person to give them further clarity and wisdom through divination.

The offerings were apple juice and cookies, after which sacred items presented to the Goddess were blessed and a question and answer period opened. People asked tradition differences, how Pagans view the world, and thanked SLPS for hosting as part of the interfaith.

The 12th annual Salt Lake Pagan Pride Day was a success! The festival began at 10am on Saturday, September 14, 2013 in Murray Park’s pavilions 1, 2, and 3 and lasted till 6pm. SLPS had a beautiful sacred space set up and offered free tarot readings. The shops Gypsy wagon of American Fork, UT, and The Typsy Gypsies of Lehi, UT were the neighbors for the day on either side of the SLPS. booth. The day opened with the morning ritual by the Four Dragons Clann of the 1734 Tradition and people filing in for free readings. As noontime approached, the heavens opened and rain poured down for twenty minutes on everyone. Most of the guests took cover under the canopies and pavilions and watched the bards and belly dancers perform their art. The rained stopped and the people returned. 4pm brought the closing ritual by Harts Hearth Clan of Grantsville. They performed a ceremony to Frey And Freyja in the northern Asatru tradition. 6pm was the close and everyone packed up to return home till next year’s pride. Till we meet again!
