Cerridwyn's Call: To All Who Love the Earth...Join in Gaia's Healing

Sunday, October  31, 2010
4 PM - 6PM

Unitarian Univeralist Church of Long Beach (UUCLB)
Under the Structure   
5450 Atherton Avenue, Long Beach, CA

Join Cerridwyn and The Holly King as they lead us in creating a Magickal Compost Pile of Healing energy to send out to the world. It is the Pagan New Year so we honor that which has fallen and died by offering what no longer serves us to into Cerridwyn's mighty cauldron of transformation.
Please arrive by 3:30 PM. Blessing the boundary in Native American style will begin at 4 PM.  Leaders of the Pagan and Goddess communities will call cross cultural Goddesses and Gods for Elemental energy. The Knot of ISIS will be sung and snipits of the red cord will be shared among participants. 
This is an open invitation to all paths Pagan and non Pagan. Children are welcome. Drummers are welcome. Dancers are Welcome.  All who wish to participate in healing Mother Earth this night of the turning wheel are welcome...  Earth is non denominational and so is this event.
Please do not bring actual organic material for a compost pile as we do not yet have a facility for that. Your offering will be on parchment (provided)  or from your heart. Approach Cerridwyn, ask her blessing and leave your offering...then collect your gift. When all attending have done so, Cerridwyn will begin to stir her cauldron and transform the contents into rich fertile healing energy...then the Holly King will be summoned to lead the Spiral Dance. With each step we take we send the healing further and further. Please contact Glory Vernon at thelivingmuse@aol.com for questions and comments. Blessed Be!!!

She changes everything she touches and everything she touches, changes
She changes everything she touches and everything she touches, changes
Change is, touch is; touch is, change is. Change us, touch us; touch us, change us.
We are changers; everything we touch can change.
We are changers; everything we touch can change.

The main Norwich Chant Collective (NCC) meets every Wednesday evening in the Alec Bussey Scout Centre, Norwich from 7:45 - 9:45pm, although participants often linger for drinks and gossip. A suggested donation of £2 to cover the cost of room hire is asked at the end of the evening. No equipment is required, however if you wish to bring appropriate percussion this is welcomed. Wednesday gatherings are limited to over 13s only.

The women of the NCC host a regular Full Moon Rite as close to the night of the full moon as possible. The aim of this gathering is to provide an opportunity for solitary practitioners, those who are new to the path or anyone who wishes celebrate the zenith of the moons power. The rite is kept as simple as possible so that those of any path can celebrate fully. Ritual attire is not expected, however the rite is held outdoors whenever possible, so a warm jacket and a brolly may be useful! There is no cost for the outdoor rite, however in inclement weather, a small donation will be asked to cover the cost of room hire. Women usually bring a little food or drink to share at the end of the rite. The Full Moon Rite has no age restriction and mothers with boys under 7 are welcome to bring them. Further details of this can be obtained from Gee at the Wednesday evening gatherings. http://www.norwichchantcollective.org/Events.htm
