Main Ritual

"Finding the Balance"

Come; take a magickal journey to another space and time, where we may witness the forces of nature at work. The Winter King and his Court have presided over the land these last six months, holding nature in status until the warming sunlight of the Summer Prince and his Court come to challenge for the right to rule over the growing season. Will Summer’s fiery youth and vigor win out over the experience and wisdom of Winter? Will Winter deign to release his icy grip, allowing the wheel to turn? Join us to cheer on your champion in a duel of the elements!

Heathfire Coven & Friends re-create their Ritual from the first FPG at Ocala, Beltaine 2006. There will be no procession, so please come and place your chairs or blankets around the ritual space. Listen to the music while you prepare yourself for ritual. We invite the Faeries, young and old, to frolic, tumble, and dance to the music. Be prepared for excitement, surprises, and a Bale Fire run/jump. Hail Beltaine!
