Public Rituals & Salons - All are welcome!

Some are In-Person*and*some are Online/Zoom!


Mark your calendars for the Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Temple Public Sabbat Ritual & Salon celebrations for 2021-2022!


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. (Remaining 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).​ You're welcome to join our two Meetup pages as well - The Eclectic at Spirit's Edge and Witches, Shamans, Mages & Pagans Meetup

In-Person Ritual Venue & Entrance:

Our in-person rituals for Fall 2021 are at Babler State Park in its *indoor* Gallery meeting room, in the lower level of the meeting room. The stairs and elevator are to the left of the welcome desk when you enter the Visitor's Center. Please just be respectful as far as demeanor/language and maybe stash your capes if coming through the Visitor Center so as to be as great of tenants as possible. :) The website for the park is HERE, which you can use to help plan your visit in the park before and after the Ritual & Salon. Here is our awesome new ritual space!! :) This pic is from our first ritual there at Mabon, which was our 9th anniversary of public rituals by Spirit's Edge! 














In-Person Rituals Food Situation & Pre/Post Ritual Activities in the Park:

Please be sure to eat prior to coming to Ritual, as we will not be eating in the meeting room. We encourage you to come early and/or stay late on your own to enjoy the park. You may wish to enjoy a picnic breakfast in the park prior to the ritual, or a late / mid-afternoon picnic lunch after the event concludes. Definitely please enjoy the park and make a day of it! If you need to, you may wish to bring a quick snack to eat outside for during our 20-minute break between the Salon discussion and the Ritual. You are welcome to bring a non-alcoholic drink to have at your seat during the Salon and Ritual. 


In addition to picnicking as an option before/after the event, you may also wish on your own to walk, hike or meditate in the gorgeous park before or after ritual. It is exciting to be able to offer this great amenity to all those attending our public rituals!!


In-Person COVID Protocols:

We will be following strict covid protocols including, but not limited to:

  1. social distancing /no physical contact (handshakes/hugs),
  2. masks required for all attendees (once you are seated and socially distance, you may take your mask off at your seat; you may sit closer to your own family members of course);
  3. we will not not moving around the circle;
  4. using hand sanitizer frequently after touching things (we will have some and also encourage you to bring your own little bottles).
  5. If you're ill at all, please stay home as folks with illness will be turned away at the door (let us know in advance if you're sick and we can apply your registration to the next in person ritual.
  6. Also, we will have disinfectant spray/paper towels that you are welcome to use to wipe down your own chairs, etc. 
  7. We will do all of these protocols - regardless of government requirements - to be protective of our members who have varying levels of underlying health conditions and the continued evolving nature of the worldwide COVID pandemic. Many of our members, even those who have been vaccinated, especially those with underlying health issues still are very cautious because shots are not 100% effective. We want ALL of our members to be able to successfully participate, so we will do the added precautions out of Love. 
  8. If there are any additional government requirements and/or CDC guidelines, we will follow those as well. 
  9. Attendance is at your own risk as any covid protocols are not a guarantee.

 

Attire & Ritual Etiquette: 
  
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 do have some ladies that wear skirts because they like to. We also have some ladies who wear shorts or jeans. Some folks wear robes or capes and some don’t. Some people like to dress up and dress a little witchier - like the time to sport your black and fun witchy ensembles or jewelry. But some like to come understated. And some just come as they are. Really, we want folks to be dressed how they like and how they're most comfortable.


For our
online rituals, 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.


In our
online and in-person rituals, we have found that we raise a *ton* of energy through through both formats! That is great for the Work and the experience, and we have also found that the temperature can increase in our online rituals, just like it can in the in-person ritual circle. You may wish to dress in layers. For when we have guided meditations/ journeys, you may want to bring a cushion or yoga mat 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.


​Rattles/Drums…Some rituals we build power with rattling or drumming. For our online rituals, please have your own rattle or drum.  For in-person rituals, we are not using drums due to noise restrictions at our new venue, but we will rattle softly, so if you'd like, please bring a rattle. (We are no longer providing rattles due to covid.) We usually mention it on the event page.


Standing or Sitting?... You always have the choice whether to sit or stand. Sometimes physically we may have something going on (i.e. surgery, injury, etc.), and sometimes there's a reason why it's not easy for us to stand, a host of reasons. 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 ravins522522@mypacks.net or post your question on one of our event pages.


What to "Bring":

  • A non-alcoholic drink to have at your chair.
  • Dress in layers (even for online rituals!) as the rituals raise a lot of energy, and of course for in-person rituals, the venue temperatures also can vary. 
  • For online rituals, if you can, please have a candle and a rattle or drum, and watch the email the day prior to the ritual for more information.
  • For in-person rituals, please bring a rattle (no drums due to venue noise restrictions) and watch the event pages for any other items to bring.
  • If we announce a meditation on the event pages, please bring what you need to be comfortable during a meditation (i.e. blanket, cushon / yoga mat, eye cover, etc.).


In-Person Transportation Tips:

Please be sure to arrange your own transportation both to and from the ritual *prior* to arriving at the ritual. Please check the bus schedules, which may not be running when our ritual is over. We are not able to provide transportation to/from the bus/metrolink routes, nor to/from the ritual, nor arrange transportation for you. You may wish to call Uber or Lyft if you do not have a car or a ride. You'll need to have your own cell phone to install the app to arrange the Uber or Lyft. We believe you can pre-order the pickup time/place with Uber/Lyft, so you can have it all pre-arranged before you come to the ritual. As for timing of dropoff/pickup for Uber/Lyft. Prior to the ritual, you may arrange to ride share with a member by posting it on our event page and then private messaging with anyone who says they are interested in ride sharing with you to/from the ritual. It is not guaranteed that there will be a member that can ride share.


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!
