Reminder: South Bay Circles and CAYA Pagan Congregation's Festival of Heart and Harvest

Come As You Are to...

South Bay Circles and CAYA Pagan Congregation's Festival of Heart and Harvest!

This is the time of year when we celebrate the work we have done and the bountiful harvest we have created. We reflect on the sacrifices we've made to ensure that our labors are rewarded, and share with each other the glorious results of those endeavors!

The most valuable crop we harvest, and that which makes our harvest possible, is our community! We share the best of ourselves, we support one another, and when challenged, we prevail through our strong and ever-renewing commitment which is at the heart of our community.

Join us at our joyous communal feast & ritual as we honor the Earth Goddess Anu, Goddess of fertility and prosperity and Dagda, The Good God, Master of magic and God of the Earth.

We will be sitting on the earth during this ritual, so if mobility is a concern, please bring a camp chair to sit upon within the circle. Blankets will be provided.

We will be sharing in a potluck feast after ritual, so if you are able, please bring a dish clearly labeled (Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free, Carnivorous) with enough to share. If you have dietary restrictions, please bring a dish that you can enjoy.

$10-$20 sliding scale donation requested to cover the costs of renting the site. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Sunday, July 23, 2017
Gather at 4:00PM, Ritual will begin at 5:00PM

Ritual will be outdoors at a park in San Jose. For more information and exact location, please contact Bianca at southbaycircles@gmail.com 408-623-5048.

A ritual collaboration between CAYA Pagan Congregation and Nigheanan Brighde.

In the dark of winter, we find the light within that brings us the courage to share our light with the world.  We will honor Brighe, ancient Irish goddess who teaches as Poet, Healer and Smith. We will also celebrate and solemnify the first of Come As You Are Pagan Congregation's first initiation toward Clergy hood in the PNW! What will you initiate in your own life? What light within yourself will you discover?

All ages and genders welcome! Participants are asked to bring a small jar or bottle to bring home blessed water. Feel free to bring food or drink items to share after ritual.

Erin Lund Johnson, Sara Sawyer, Amy Trampush, and Christine Ramme are sisters of Nigheanan Brìghde, Daughters of Brìde, a Celtic Polytheist Flametending Order dedicated to the Irish goddess Brìde, founded and directed by Erin in 2011.  Nigheanan Brìghde fosters sacred sisterhood and mutual growth through shared devotion, contemplation, service, and ritual.
