Mark your calendars for the Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Temple Public Sabbat Ritual & Salon celebrations for 2021-2022! All rituals are on Saturdays, starting at 6:50 p.m. Our rituals through Lammas / Lughnasadh 2021 (and through the remainder of the worldwide covid pandemic) will be online / virtual live and interactive video rituals via the Zoom app. Ritual dates through 2022 are listed further below, so mark your calendars!
We offer a Public Sabbat Ritual Series with Salon Discussion to celebrate in community, join with Spirit and turn the Wheel of the Year! Each sabbat has a short teaching and discussion component called "A Seeker's Salon," followed by a formal ritual and a "Fellowship Circle” after the ritual. We welcome those of all traditions and paths. We welcome those that are brand new to the path and experienced practitioners. The Ritual is explained during the Salon discussion, so no worries if it’s your first time, and everyone is welcoming! We change pantheons that we partner with at each ritual, so each ritual is unique! Sometimes after the in-person sabbat rituals, we may offer a recording of our sabbat guided journey for sale.
We have created individual, public event pages on Facebook for all of the below events, so please join the event pages for updates! If you join our Spirit's Edge: A Seeker's Salon Facebook group page (all are welcome!), you will have ready access and notification of any events we create – just look under the “events” tab on the group page to find the entire list of all of our events. (2021 FB event pages coming soon!) Please also share the group page and event pages with your friends as all are welcome! We look forward to seeing you there! As the year goes along, we will add event pages that are public on our Spirit's Edge Shamonial Temple events page. You may subscribe to our Temple events page as well! .Also, please "like" our Spirit's Edge Shamonial Temple page and join our Spirit's Edge: A Seeker's Salon group page for information on our fun informal field trips (which do not have event pages).

More details on our Public Rituals & Salons
After Ritual Fellowship Circle:
You're welcome to have a drink and snack at your chair for after the ritual. We will have a fun after-ritual chat!
Attire & Ritual Etiquette:
Though we are going virtual, let's still make this magickal! Ritual attire is awesome. Black/dark colors are always great, or seasonal colors; capes and robes welcome; no alcohol or under the influence. You also may dress casually if that's more comfortable for you.
We will email etiquette for our virtual experience / Zoom video experience in your confirmation email as mentioned (to the email address you used for your PayPal payment, after your payment is received. Please have both your video and audio enabled and plan to be in the same spot for the Salon & Ritual. We will treat this just like we are doing it as an in-person circle, so thinking about it in that way will be helpful.
We have found that we raise a *ton* of energy through this virtual format! That is great for the Work and the experience, and we have also found that the temperature can increase just like it can in the in-person ritual circle. You may wish to have layers. For when we have guided meditations/ journeys, you may want to bring a cushion to sit on or a blanket to sit/lay on or otherwise cover up with and maybe even something to cover your eyes if that’s helpful. We’ll announce on the event page if the ritual working will include a guided meditation.
Standing or Sitting?... Given our virtual experience, there will be more options to remain seated than usual. However, no matter what, you always have the choice whether to sit or stand. Sometimes we're not feeling our best physically, like we may have something going on and such (surgery, injury, etc.), and sometimes there's a reason why it's not easy for us to stand, a host of reasons. I've even had these times myself. There are many of our members who find it difficult to stand. Our rituals are *totally* a judgement free zone!! On this and any other topic! That means our members and the Gods/Goddesses/spirits understand that we're humans in human bodies. You'll still be just as much a part of the ritual and the Circle if you're seated as if you're standing for certain parts of the rituals. We all come to the ritual with different things. The important thing is to be there. To be a part of community. To share in all the good energy. And to bring that back to your daily life.
For other ritual etiquette information and questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or post your question on this page.
What to "Bring":
If you can, please have a candle and a rattle or drum for the virtual ritual.
After Ritual Follow-Up:
Be sure to ground and be gentle with yourself after the energy from a ritual and drink plenty of water. If we have a guided meditation, we might offer it online for sale (for audio access) to benefit our Temple.
All are welcome!:
We welcome any honest spiritual seekers to join us in circle and celebration. It’s going to be an amazing working and we look forward to celebrating with you! 😊🕯 💜 If you have any questions or concerns, send them to us via ravins52252mypacks.net. Blessed be!
Love, Light & Blessings!
