CELEBRATION OF MOTHER EARTH

Root & Bough, We Learn & Grow

         We at Northern Spirits want to welcome the community to our Celebration of Mother Earth. It will be a weekend full of learning and fellowship.


        Sponsored by Once in a Blue Moon, this event is put on by Northern Spirits Coven of Witches.  Elder Lord Chadow and his High priestess Lady Darkest lead this coven.  This year's event will be held at Angel Light Sanctuary located at 12101 Central Avenue, Swanton, Ohio 43558.  We will be celebrating our ties to the earth with classes, activities and fellowship.  The dates for this wonderful event are May 19 through May 21, 2017.

         Admission to the event will be a $5.00 donation to Angel Light to help them maintain and improve this wonderful piece of land that is open to people of all faiths.  There will also be a $5.00 fee for each class you wish to participate in.  This fee will provide the basic materials required to make the items in the class, for some classes additional materials will be available for purchase.  Classes will include, but not be limited to, cingulums, wands, and oils.  There will also be drumming around the fire for those who wish to participate.  You don't need a drum to have fun, bring your noisemakers of all kinds.

       Stay tuned for more details!  If you have any questions feel free to contact Northern Spirits Coven.  Come join us for an event that ceebrates not only our ties to Mother Earth, but the ties that bind us as a community!

Update #2:
Angel Light Sanctuary has very limited seating.  If you are coming out for the day please bring your own lawn chairs or camp chairs.  If you are planning on camping with us, you will need to bring your own tent.  Also, remember to bring plenty to drink with you, while Angel Light is a beautiful location, it is a rustic/ primitive site with few of the modern amenities.
