Healing Roots Culture and Spirituality
Limited Capacity seats available

Culture provides coherence to human experience.  It can give us a sense of connection to ancestors, to  place, and to the cosmos.  Culture gives meaning and power to spiritual practices.  How are culture and spirituality interconnected in your own practice?   What implications does that question hold for issues of culture appropriation, decolonization, and movements for liberation?

Bardic Open Mic
The Druids of Northern Roots Grove invite you to “An afternoon with the Bards of Paganicon.” This will be an Open Mic event where Bards and others can share poetry, stories, and music. We will meet in the cozy surroundings of the Fireplace Lounge from 12:00 pm to 03:00 pm on Saturday, March 23rd. All are welcome to share their creative talents! To secure a performance slot, we recommend participants sign up in advance. Sign-up is open now! Visit our Bardic Open Mic website for instructions.

In ancient times Bards held a sacred role as lore keepers: poets, tellers of story, singers of song. Through Bardic works, Awen —  divine artistic inspiration — flowed from the Universal life force through Nature and was made manifest in words, visual art, and music. In this way, history and traditions of the tribe were preserved and conveyed. Today’s Druids still recognize the sacred nature of creativity, believing every person has an innate creative potential that can be nurtured and developed. Bardic paths taught in modern Druidry open the mind and spirit to Awen. Join Northern Roots Grove for a relaxing afternoon of Bardic arts and get the Awen flowing!

The Marriage of Heaven & Hell
Limited Capacity seats available

Join us for a unique double-ritual, led by two practicing ritual magicians, in which the celestial and infernal conjoin. The first rite uses the traditional angelic adjurations set forth in the 500-year old  grimoire, The Heptameron, to evoke the aerial king MAYMON REX.  The second rite fuses archaic shamanic technologies and modern LHP techniques to evoke LUCIFUGE ROFOCALE, the Spirit of Endarkened Light. This rare, back-to-back demonstration of white and black goetic magic  will conclude by uniting opposing forces to rend the Veil of Ignorance and bestow the gift of gnosis on all who attend.

Resurrecting the Goddess: Inanna, the Queen of Heaven & Earth
Limited Capacity seats available

This ritual will be dedicated to Inanna, the Sumerian goddess of love, passion, sexuality, and war. Inanna is depicted as the “liberated woman” who bears the traditional symbols of masculine and feminine power and is featured in some reliefs as a woman wearing armor traditionally worn by men.
The subject matter of the ritual will include the Inanna Cycle - the chronological retelling of Inanna’s gradual rise to power from a goddess of the storehouse to a prime mover who decreed destiny.
Participants will be led in a symbolic purification prior to the ritual proper; the ritual will consist of a call and response invocation with drumming, chanting, offerings, and proclamations of praise.

Hardship, Fear, and Power ~ A Deep Wild Magick of Connection
Limited Capacity seats available

Within the shifting constellations of our communities, we find ourselves moving through, with and about all the aspects of life, some more difficult than others. Unburdening ourselves and sharing these hardships can make them easier to bear. Hearing others speak of their own fears and pain can open our hearts in new ways. Using techniques developed by the Deep Well ~ Great Heart Society, in this ritual we will explore the empowering magick of revelation, witnessing, acceptance, and connection.

Uniting our Groves: A Druid Diversity Ritual
Limited Capacity seats available

With diversity comes strength, but so too comes isolation. As we create this shared ritual of honor, worship and magic, we seek to not only strengthen Druidry in all its forms, but to also build roads between us. We reach out to Epona and Cernunnos to both praise them and to ask for their assistance in our work. Let us honor our traditions while building an understanding of the others.

This will be a hybrid ritual combining elements of at least ADF, OBOD and RDNA ritual forms. All are welcome to participate or spectate as your comfort level dictates. Let us show you what we value in each of our traditions, how we can work together, and how we honor the divine.
