Presented by the Circle of the Sublime Elm of Orlando and the Druid Ancient Earth Grove of Eustis, FL
The 2014 Beltaine main ritual will honor Aine, the Celtic Queen Under the Mound, and Aengus mac Og, the Celtic God of Love. Ritual attendees will pass through one of four gates of their choice (North, East, South, or West) and be smudged and asperged as they enter.
After taking their seats, all attendees are invited to show their respect and honor to the May Tree, which replaces the May Pole in this Druid ritual, by placing gifts or tokens of respect either on or beneath the Tree. Attendees may also choose to approach the Tree to pay their verbal respects aloud or silently. As attendees visit the Tree, the circle will be smudged and asperged.
The ritual will end with the traditional Jumping of the Bale Fire and a Spiral Dance.
