The members enjoyed a lovely Lughnasadh, praising the Celtic sun god Lugh on Saturday, August 5, 2017. The gathering was held at the temple, with dimming light in the west and the altar of life set in the center. A beautiful sunset graced the meditations, and a journey was led to meet the Celitc God, who gave warm, brotherly advice to those present. The feastings included chicken, mashed potatoes, and baked asparagus.

On August 6, 2011, UUPS drove up to Logan to attend a wonderful ritual set back 2 miles in Green canyon with USUPA. A small altar, decorated with flowers, fruit, chalices and more was set in the south of a circle lined with rose petals.

Our very own Muad’Dib played the part of Lugh. The participants entered through the west gate. Each attendant was cleansed with water and purified with air. The circle was closed when everyone was inside and Kassie began the elegant and short ritual to the God and Goddess.

Bread and honey were offered in thanks. All the participants took a piece of bread as the symbol of their harvest and were asked to think about what they were grateful for, what blessings they had received, what service had been given to them and what all of this meant in the larger cycle of their life.  After a moment, each person was allowed to speak allowed their feelings, thoughts and emotions and to throw the bread in the fire as the final act of thanks to the God(s)

With the closing of the ritual brought a feast and fire with the God and Goddess. The food included items such as mead, red beans and rice, pie and dutch oven enchiladas!

As the sun set, the fire added a much appreciated light! Even the fire Gods were seen walking around this night!

UUPS Thanks USUPA for hosting another wonderful ritual. We can’t wait to see you all again!

UUPS has the wonderful opportunity again to visit and participate with our fellow Pagans at Utah State University. The ritual is set for a nearby canyon in Logan on Saturday, August 6, 2011. We need all of you to post your comments so we can get organized and know who’s going, who can carpool, who would like to volunteer their car for use. UUPS can offer a small reimbursement for gas if necessary. We also ask everyone to chip in on the gas cost because simply… the prices are out of this world (as everyone knows).

What: Lughnasadh/ Lammas Ritual

Where: Logan UT with Utah State University Pagan Alliance

When: Saturday, August 6, 2011 7-11pm

Out in Tooele Canyon, a small group of UUPS members gathered to release pent up energies, dead goals, angers and other frustrations in a simple shamanic ritual led by our very own Laurence Miles.
Lughnasadh, one of the 8 holidays in several of the Pagan traditions and the first harvest fall holiday, was celebrated in the Shamanic path. A simple rite, A fire was lit, frustrations written on paper, a grounding moment, and then the paper was thrown in to be released to the four elements, deity and the universe. This mild sunny day allowed us to snack on the chicken, vegetables and fruit until about ten minutes after the ritual was completed, gale force winds came barreling down the canyon, accompanied shortly after by rain. We all understood this to mean that our energy had been released and was being taken up by higher causes!! Over all, everyone left feeling accomplished, more relaxed and spiritually deeper
