Closing Ritual

The Beginning - at first thought this is oddly named as it is the last ritual of Harvest Gathering, but it truly is our first celebration as transformed spiritual beings. We've spent day's together learning from our amazing speakers, laughing with new and old friends, feasting to nourish our bodies, drumming and dancing around the fire to ignite our spirit, a little retail therapy with our vendors and created bonds that will last a life time. Today we celebrate The Beginning!

 

Liber Resh vel Helios

Will be performed four times a day Liber Resh vel Helios is an adoration of the sun preformed four times daily at sunrise, noon, sunset and midnight. This simple yet effective ritual honors various aspects of the solar deity Ra as a manifestation of the eternal divine in our everyday experience.
