Apologies for the long absence.
Recent FestivalsFor the last weekend of June, we once again celebrated the Anadikia at Temenos.
Hestia altar on the hearth.
It was an amazing and reflective weekend of rituals, divination, and simply being away from the everyday hustle and bustle. As per usual, we determined our calendar for the year at this time. Upcoming dates below.
Today, we celebrated the Fall Festival.
Our divination was a reminder that while, with courage, we will succeed in our endeavors, these must be for the greater good.
As it is traditional to offer Demeter pork, theoxenia was pork teriyaki along with rice, baked beans, and salad to round out the first harvest, with apple pie to finish.
We also celebrated the Panagon, and thus after theoxenia, we played the game Tiki Mountain, which may not be a marathon but is still a sort of race.
