Merry Meet, friends! The sultry days of summer are now upon us and local festivals are in full swing to honor our Gods, Mother Earth and each other. Don’t miss out on exciting opportunities to network with other Pagans in different venues who offer many lessons vital to our personal growth. Members of Deeply Rooted are encouraged to attend and support the various activities that happen in the surrounding area as a way of diversifying ourselves and spreading awareness of our community. If you’re interested in attending the upcoming Fox Valley Pagan Pride Music Festival, you’re in for a real treat!
Immerse yourself in Pagan culture by finding new social connections, take a gander at a variety of vendors loaded with goods made by skilled craftsmen and enjoy the musical talents of independent Pagan performers. If finding some new spiritual insights is an enticement to you, there will also be various psychic readers who will be happy to give you a new perspective on your spiritual progress. This year, July 22nd, 2017 Pierce Park in Appleton will be hosting the 5th Annual Pagan Pride Music Fest! So come on down, pull up a chair and enjoy the musical styling of Celia, Brian Henke, Sentinel Grove and Random Factions. We can’t wait to see you! Blessed Be!
Good morning all, just dropping a note here updating folks on general DR-ness. We have had record breaking rain this entire year and thusly the place is a wee bit on the wet side, more so than usual:-). The plant and animal activity has been way high as well with eagles, coyotes, bears, turkeys, song birds, ducks, cranes, rabbits, hawks, weasels, and a ton more critters rolling through the tremendous green growing from every square inch of the place. The apple and plum trees are growing quickly and had a cloud of blossoms in spring so should be a solid year for fruit. The ritual circles, shrines, and fairy grove are all delightfully overgrown as I hate taking a weedwacker to sacred space but that all have a very full active vibe to them as life is flowing(literally) through them. Come on out to see what the place is like here at the height of life and growth but know that the mosquitoes have taken advantage of all the rain and are rather hardcore most parts of the day. See ya soon!
The weekend was… Interesting to say the least. The Litha celebration turned out to be a rather small affair with eleven attendees including three kids at Grandmother Apple, Massive props to Kim for pulling together a ritual with dedication and focus.
Kevin and Andrea came out and provided conversation and fun (yay, more Settler players!!)
Thanks to those who worked on machinery and also partaking in the ritual as well.
All in all, a decent, relaxing, even slightly productive weekend.
Happy Solstice to everyone!!
