May 2022 Calan Haf (Beltane)
We will be celebrating Calan Haf at Trout Lake Abbey on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at 5:30 pm. This will be a Welsh pantheon rite. Bydded Felly!

The weather is forecast to be quite wet, so we will be holding the ritual indoors in the Mountain Room above the garage. The ceiling is tall enough to have the Maypole, so all will be well! We will ask everyone to wear a mask indoors, however. Covid is still not finished with us. If you don’t have a mask, we will supply one.

This is the rite of the beginnings of summer, of fertility, and of green and growing things. It is said that in medieval days, folks would go out into the woods and lay with whomever they came across. Welcome to the lusty month of May! 

It is also a rite to celebrate Nature, the Earth, and the Spirits of Nature. We honor those who share this world with us!

Please bring your own offerings to make to Rhiannon, Pwyll, or the other Spirits. Appropriate offerings include flowers, whiskey, horsey things, silver, oats, organic foods like apples and carrots, etc. As always, praise offerings of song, poetry, dance, etc. are always welcome.

There will be a potluck following the ritual, outside on the Mountain Room porch.

We look forward to seeing you here on Saturday the 7th!
