Deepen your spiritual practice.
Join a group of heart-centered people to expand your knowledge and experience of the holidays of the Wheel of the Year.
Every six weeks, many contemporary Pagans celebrate solar holidays. The solstices and equinoxes are ones you may know about. But what about the “Cross-quarter holidays,” those holidays that fall in between?
Turning the Wheel
A Free Online Course for Pagans, Pagan-Curious, and Seekers of Deeper Spiritual Connection
I am pleased to offer small, free classes on each of the holidays that occur throughout the Pagan Wheel of the Year.
For those of you who are curious or seeking, you will learn how to celebrate each holiday for yourself. You will discover the qualities of each holiday and the value each brings to the turning of the Wheel of the Year.
For those of you who have been practicing for many years – whether as a solitary or with a cherished group – you will enjoy the unique energy that comes with celebrating the holiday in a gathering of like-minded people, along with a deepening of your spiritual connection to the holiday as it approaches.
Our next class is in preparation of the Autumnal Equinox – keep reading for the full details!
Each class will be 45-60 minutes long on a Monday evening or late afternoon, depending on where you live. I will provide information about the holiday, we will share a small meditation or ritual, and then discuss about how to celebrate the upcoming holiday.
There is no obligation to attend all of the classes. You are free to attend as many or as few as you wish. The classes are delivered live via Zoom. All classes are recorded and the videos are made available inside our exclusive, private Facebook Group, typically within 48 hours. You are welcome to tune in live or to watch previous classes at your leisure.
Next Class: The Autumnal Equinox – Stomp Those Grapes!
Winemaking, hard work, and song! Let the fruit harvest continue! Beltaine and summer’s height may be times for the great party, but it is the fall equinox that celebrates the nitty-gritty of beginning the delight and deliciousness. What do we preserve in jams and jellies? What are we pickling from the garden (please tell me it’s garlic green beans!)? And what, oh what will we stomp and thrash and mash and transform to slowly become the nectars of spring? Join us in the WOTR Zoom Room for some Dionysian delights!
Class Date: Monday, September 18th, 2017 at 7PM Eastern / 4PM Pacific
By signing up for the class, you will receive exclusive access to the The Way of The River Facebook Group and a regular reflection from me on a topic related to spirituality, delivered by email.
