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.

For all those who don’t know, SLPS will be hosting a public ritual, the first sabbat of the year, on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 6pm at Dancing Cranes Imports located at 673 E Simpson Ave (2240 S.), Salt Lake City, UT 84106. Dancing Cranes is accessible on public transit on the 700 E S-line stop on the Sugar House Street Car Trolley. This celebration will welcome back the light of the sun and bring an end to the dark times of the year. Known as Candlemas to Catholics, this is the time of year when the Lady takes over from the Lord and is honored in the form of the Celtic Goddess Brigid (Saint Brigid) at Imbolc. Brigid is over poetry and blacksmithing, and will be visiting the attendees to give them guidance for the upcoming spring season. Join in if you can, it’s free! You can find the ritual outline in the rituals section of our website. If you’re on Facebook, RSVP on the event page on the Salt Lake Pagan Society’s Facebook page.

President Muad’Dib was recently interviewed by Metamora Films for an upcoming movie about forgiveness. Matthew Duhamel had a pleasant question and answer on Friday, January 10, 2014 at Dancing Cranes Imports. The questions covered aspects of what is forgiveness in Paganism (and more specifically Wicca), is there any divine mandate, and how do pagans view those who are commanded to forgive in the three Abrahamic religions. Look for the upcoming video release from the company around August-October 2014.

It has been decided… the Salt Lake Pagan Society will be meeting at Cafe Solstice inside Dancing Cranes Imports. After several weeks of searching for a new meeting place, Cafe Solstice came out triumphant. “With being a new age place, good food, prices, friend staff and the soon opening 700 E trolley line from TRAX, this was the ideal location. And with the addition of Dancing Cranes inside, it makes it easy to pick up supplies on a weekly basis” said President Muad’Dib. Come join us the starting on the second Sunday in August (August 11th) after Lughnasadh at our new location!
