Samhain 2017 Main Altar

Thanks to those who came out for Samhain 2017!  We had a lot of fun. You can find more pictures here.

Thanks also to those who attended the November 5 monthly meeting.  Here’s the notes if you missed it.

RITUALS

Samhain: It went well and was well received. Thanks for all the feedback!

Yule: We now move on to planning for the Winter Solstice evening service and the Annual Yule Vigil.  If you would like to help with these events, please email mysticgrove@orlandouu.org

Imbolc:  We are currently working with Twisted Oak who will be our guest ritual leaders for this event. Details soon!

CLASSES CONTINUE

Tarot 2: Minor Arcana is about half way done but it is not too late to join the Facebook Group version and take the class as an “at home player.”

Requiem Class on 2nd Fridays might be the class for you if you need help getting your personal affairs in order. The next session is Nov 11.  This study group is “work at your pace” so just bring your planner and jump in on whatever tab we’re discussing next. Class is free, and either of the two suggested planners are $12 on amazon.

Circle of Song is a new “drop in” friendly class on 2nd Saturdays from 1 PM – 3 PM if you would like to learn to sing in a family friendly environment.  This is “easy choir” for the non-singers and experienced singers wanting to play!  Childcare is provided on the coop model.  If you are bringing a child or grandchild, please RSVP over email with your name and ages of children so we can have enough supplies in the Kid’s Club.  The next session is November 18.  Please Note the date change due to the 1U Open House. 

3rd Sunday Movie Nite

Our 3rd Sunday movie nite will come back in the Spring Term now that we are settling into the newly remodeled spaces.  We are taking suggestions for the Spring Term movie list.  If you have ideas? Email us!
