Coming up fast is Beltane, also known as May Day. A time of growth and the celebration of fertility. This is generally the season favoured for marriage and handfasting rites as summer unfolds and life blossoms.
The Maypole is a popular Beltane celebration and one that most people readily recognize.
For Beltane there will be a public ritual held at Avalon (1564 Chemin Herron suite 207 in Dorval) on Saturday April 30th. The ritual will be starting at 6:30PM but the doors will be opening at 6:00PM. If you have any feast gear, any food or drink to share, drums, or masks please feel free to bring them along!
This year the ritual will be a Shamanic Drum ritual led by Cauldron of the Yew Grove.
All ages are welcome, of course!
Also in celebration of Beltane on Sunday May 1st here in store there will be a Sabbat Sale, where everything in store will be 10% OFF!
And just in time we happen to have our mystery blend incense in stock! As usual they will be available at the cash.
And don't forget to pick up a Melange Magique tote bag! They are $5.00 each or free with any purchase of $100.00 or more.
We still have Kannon posters for sale. At $8.00 each for these gorgeous posters of the Goddess of Compassion the proceeds continue to go to the relief efforts in Japan. They are still in our thoughts and prayers!
We are still selling blessed palms, blessed by a priest and beautifully woven by our very own staff, they are for sale at $5.00 each. Give to someone you care for to give them positive energy and blessings or hang in your home and make it your own sacred space.
