2024 Events

Yggdrasil by Lioudmila Perry Displate

All ceremonies are planned in outdoor settings. Occasionally, a potluck meal may follow. Please see our Health and Safety page for guidelines on gatherings.

Visitors may attend our moots and public ceremonies; please email us for details of the location. A moot is a meeting of grove members to perform a group practice, or just to have social time. Moots are often online, as it seems more convenient for many people's schedules. We welcome input on themes or activities to do during moots!

Private ceremonies may be attended only by people who've met with us at any three public events.
