A few of the core members gathered to honor Lugh on Saturday, August 2, 2014. This year’s Lughnasadh was small in comparison, due to schedules and other circumstances, regardless, Lugh was satisfied and happy to be honored and remembered with penis break and sausage gravy as the main offerings.

Lughnasadh is the traditional time for offering the first bread of the harvest, in which this year’s form they were penis bread. The foundations of the Sun and Moon temple were restored and the Angels welcomed back. A simple druid ceremony brought all the parts together before the close. The feast included grilled bratwursts in honor of Lugh, spinach salad and funeral potatoes.

Thanks to everyone who came and participated in the Imbolc ceremony on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at Dancing Cranes Imports at 6pm. SLPS helped kick off the 2014 Interfaith Month with Imbolc. Lakshmi stood in since Brigid arrived late. The table was decorated with a handmade table cloth by Woman Between the Wolves in the late winter seasonal design. Flowers, cookies, sparkling apple cider, candles and more all decorated the altar. Since the ritual was squeezed into the small time space of an hour, some creative editing was necessary.

After reading Imbolc poetry, there was singing and dancing, cleansing and blessing, all before Brigid appeared. She stepped in for a visit through one of the mediums and gave spiritual advice to everyone through the tarot. Afterwards, everyone came forward to received blessings from her through sacred fire.

The energy was sent out into the universe at the close and the rest was returned to the living Earth.
