Canberra’s witches are taking over Ginninderra Village from June 17th to July 16th, 2006 to celebrate the Winter Solstice. Details here. It sounds like a pretty exciting program of witchy events, with singer Wendy Rule coming to both sing and give workshops in the use of voice in ritual. (I now understand a lot more about my female friends who own Wendy Rule CD’s).
The Witches meetup page is also very excited.
I particularly liked this description of the main event.
Winter Solstice Ritual – AN ASATRU BLOT – all welcome including kids
BYO plate to share afterwards
Because after making supplication to the Elder Gods, I guess it’s nice to share your pasta bake.
Incidentally ACT Tourism should be doing something with this. I’m sure North American wiccans and witches would love to experience a Winter Solstice in June.
