Hands of Change Open Full Moon  and Yule Ritual, Dec. 9, East Brunswick NJ

Bring the kid inside you to this family-friendly celebration of Yule. Help us welcome back the sun in song, games, ritual and merry-making. We will be having a full potluck dinner. Please note the 7:00 p.m. start time to this event to make it more kid-friendly.

Date: Dec. 9 - Full Moon & Yule 7:00 p.m. (family-friendly)

Location:

Unitarian Society
176 Tices Lane
East Brunswick, New Jersey

Hands of Change Coven Web:
http://www.handsofchange.org/index.htm

This Full Moon Circle Starts at 7:00 pm to be family-friendly!

That's right, folks. We're back indoors for the winter months at the Unitarian Society, 176 Tices Lane, East Brunswick. Meet us in the Octagon room for a special full moon ritual to herald the coming cold months. Please bring a snack or beverage to share. Requested donation: $5.

A Hands of Change Full Moon Circle is a public meeting for those who are looking to respectfully worship the Goddess and God in a comfortable friendly setting. It is also the best way to meet us or to see what were all about. Any one of our members would be happy to meet you and answer any questions. You can tell us by the gold cords we wear.

Our Full Moon circles are open to all respectful seekers. They are "teaching circles," where we explain the magic we are creating. We are an eclectic group, drawing strength from several traditions and disciplines. Much of our power comes from our acceptance of diversity and our commitment to inclusion. Our open circles generally draw 25-30 people. We recommend that if this is the first time attending you do so with an open mind and in comfortable clothing.
Donation Jar, Comment Cauldron, & Sign-up Sheets

    We ask all who attend to leave a $5 donation - more if you can, less if you can't. Rent is very expensive and rituals require a lot of supplies that need to be purchased every time.

    Please leave your suggestions and comments in the comment cauldron!
    We ask everyone to sign in the first 3 times they attend our Full Moon Circles. This allows us to keep you updated on future circles, and helps us to keep track of those who are eligible for invitations to our Sabbat rituals.

    Please bring a snack or drink to share

    If you'd like to get more involved, please sign up on our service sheets to
help at upcoming rituals. Roles available range from space prep to kitchen witch so lend us your talents and help us continue our 14 year tradition of serving the community.

kokopelligi@aol.com for general information, questions and comments


The Hands of Change Full Moon Ritual

The circles that we create at the Full Moons are cast using a basic Wiccan theme starting with:

Welcome and Announcements:

    The Priest and Priestess welcome all.
Lighting the Fire Candle:

    The Priest draws the divine spark of life into the circle.
Calling the Quarters:

    We welcome the directions and corresponding elements East (Air), South (Fire), West (Water), and North (Earth) to protect and witness the ritual.
Welcoming Deity:

    We welcome God and Goddess energy into the circle. This is done in many various ways depending on the Priestess and Priest.
The Circle is Cast:

    All who enter therein shall set aside everything except their love and understanding of the Goddess and God. When we come to circle, we cast off the concerns of the mundane world--for all who enter here, enter in perfect love and perfect trust.

    The spiral of energy we create moves deosil (day-oh-sill) or clockwise as it grows and widdershins (wit-er-shins) or counterclockwise as it diminishes. Therefore, in the first parts of the ritual walk only clockwise around the altar (to build energy). At the end we dismiss the elements counterclockwise to bring the energy down.

    The circle is sacred space. As such, we ask that you remain within its bounds until it has been opened. If you need to leave sooner, a gatekeeper is designated to help you leave the circle in a respectful manner.
    When we are in sacred space, our words and our intentions take on a weight and depth of meaning they might not have in the mundane world. Thus, take care, for what we promise in circle, the universe will expect from us.
Ritual Body:

    Each ritual has a different focus, e.g., healing, preparing for a new season, releasing, and attuning ourselves to the changes around us. There are many ways we may raise energy to empower our magic. Chanting, dancing, drumming, artwork, game playing, and talking sticks are some of the more popular ones, though our creativity knows no bounds!
Great Rite:

    We integrate the God and Goddess, the Masculine and Feminine, the dynamic and the receptive within us, in this magical act of creating community through food and non-alcoholic drink. We say:

        I am faith and courage. I am being and doing. I am love and will.
        I am the feminine and masculine shining as one.
        Integration is my goal, creation my pleasure,
        and a centered self my will manifested.


Dismissals:
    We open the circle cast by thanking the Deities and Quarters we welcomed, but in the reverse order. We sing:

        The Circle is Open, But is not Broken,
        Merry Meet and Merry Part
        and Merry Meet Again!

Feast:
    We share in the community weve created by sharing more food and drink. You are welcome to bring food and non-alcoholic drink to share, but please take home what you bring.

GSPA's Samhain In the Park, Oct 23, Hurffville NJ

Time Sunday, October 23 · 10:00am - 6:00pm
Location Atkinson Memorial Park, Hurffville, NJ

Delsea & Bethel Mill Road
Hurffville, NJ
Created By Amie Tolomeo
For GSPA Discussion Group
   
Open Samhain Ritual
Kid's Activities
Grown Up Activities
Crafts
Workshops
Chinese Auction
Jungle Gym*

&#9733; FREE! FREE! FREE! &#9733;

FAQs
-----------
YES there is parking right nearby
YES there are paved pathways that go right to the site
YES there are flush potties :)
YES you can bring your kids! *

What to bring:
-----------------------
&#9658; Camp chairs or picnic blankets (there are picnic tables if you don't have any)
&#9658; Picnic lunch (though some snacks and water will be provided, more on this soon)
&#9658; Outdoor games (baseballs, gloves, basketballs, hoola hoops, whatever!)
&#9658; An offering for the Samhain Ancestor's Altar (flowers, fruit, a drawing, coins, treats, etc.)

This aerial map shows the park center. We will be on the left near the big parking lot. The blue swirl is the playground and the rooftop next to it is the picnic gazebo we've rented for the day. The little building in the white square is the potties.

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=atkinson+memorial+park+hurffville+nj&...

Directions
-----------------
Use Bethel Mill & Delsea Drive intersection in your GPS. Hurffville is the town. Enter from the Bethel Mill Road entrance, or else you will have to walk about 100-200 feet from the other parking lot. It smack between Sewell, Pitman, and Glassboro. Five minutes from 55, 47, and 10 minutes from 42. Very easy to get to, very beautiful park.

* Small Disclaimer: Your children are YOUR responsibility. There is a jungle gym and activity center at this location. It is "play at your own risk." Also, there is a creek nearby which is not fenced off. It is not within view of the play area, but young people can wander off and find it in a matter of minutes. PLEASE keep an eye on your little ones, and some of your bigger ones :) teenagers are notorious for this too!
