Thanks to everyone who was able to come to Lesson 2 today!
Both the slide deck PDF and the Study Hall sheet for Lesson 2 are posted online at
That is the main “hub” for all the class stuff. You can use the LESSONS tab at the top to get to the ones available so far. Both Lesson 1 and Lesson 2 materials are posted.
You can talk to classmates in between sessions on the matching Facebook group if you wish.
Homework is “pick your level.” Suggested minimum is from the red square area of the study hall 2 sheet.
These are the main items
- Read Article #2 “What is Ritual?”
- Practice #2 “A Solo Hour in Nature”
- Think about what “sacred space” means to you.
As willing and able, you can explore other ideas on the sheet if you wish. We do NOT expect you to try to do it all! It’s just for ideas. You can also pick your own activity or idea to explore for your spiritual practice this month.
Next time we talk about creating “sacred space.” We add a few more components to mini ritual — practicing casting the circle, calling elements, calling the lord and lady, raising energy in a simple way, and cakes and ale. Then we practice releasing all the things and opening the circle back up as we leave sacred space.
Our new tool is the pentacle plate. You can use any plate to serve your “cakes” at the home altar.
Minimal supplies are your
- UU chalice/candle/finger chalice
- a small plate with bread, cookies, or other treat for “cake”
- a glass with a beverage for “ale.”
You can set up your student altar with extra items if you wish.
You can bring a drum if you have one or you can drum on your lap or table.
We enjoyed seeing you today and look forward to seeing you next month!
