September 21- September 23
Come to Wisteria and join us in a traditional blot to Freyr, with a goat, in honor of the second harvest of the season. (If you do not understand what a “traditional blot” is, please contact Donna Donovan) By sharing a blot with the Gods we reaffirm our connection to them and thus reawaken their powers within us and their watchfulness over our world. There will be an orientation at the pavilion prior to ceremony. As well as a community feast on Saturday…so bring your home-made contributions to the meal! With Bonfires, feasting camping dancing and community
Please be advised that on Friday night we will be humanely slaughtering the goat during the Blot, then preparing the goat for Saturday’s Blotfeast.
