Please join Come As You Are Pagan Congregation as we celebrate the turning of the wheel, emerging from the darkness to bring forth growth within ourselves, our community and our world. We will be honoring Persephone, and the changes  she brings within each new experience in this life. She is new green shoot, sprouting up from the fertile void, just as this community is rebirthing itself anew. During our festival, we will be prophesying for the Wheel of the Year ahead.  

This ritual marks the formal Dedication of our Aspirant class; talented and focused practitioners now completing their year of study. We will also be honoring our new Council members and Advanced Wildflower Initiates. 

Please feel free to bring drums, rattles, shakers, and anything you wish to charge on the altar. Clearly labelled contributions to our cakes and ale offerings are also welcome.

As the Wheel turns, the Priest/ess/xes of Isis bring messages in honor of Her healing waters. How can we heal our bodies, our hearts, and our Earth? We awaken with the urgency of spring to our potential to change our lives and the world for better. As a sign of this, in our annual cycle, we welcome new Dedicants and Initiates into CAYA.

Please feel free to bring an offering for cakes and ale, which we will share in the Home of Truth Cottage after the ritual has concluded.

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.
