OLW welcomes the growing season Sunday

-A A +A

Our Lady of the Woods a Wiccan coven based in Los Alamos, will celebrate Beltane at 2 p.m. Sunday in front of the Unitarian church in Los Alamos with a ritual, feast and Maypole dance.
Beltane is one of the most important days in the Wiccan year, marking as it does the beginning of summer, the season of growth, warmth and fertility. This period was very important for ancient cultures, dependent as they were on the success of the growing season for the survival of the community.  
“Modern people don’t always see this vital link with nature,” said Rowan, the high priestess of Our Lady of the Woods. “But it is still there, even if we try to ignore it. The celebration of Beltane reminds us of our connection with nature and the important role it plays in our lives, whether we choose to acknowledge it or not.”
 The Beltane Sabbat, one of eight in the Wiccan year, marks the beginning of the summer for the Celts. Indeed, in the Irish language, Beltane is the word for May.
For many English towns, the Maypole remained stationed at the town center, becoming a gathering place for the whole season, which was a sort of ongoing block party.
Our  Lady  of the Woods hopes  to  recreate some of those good times at their celebration.
