The members of SLPS met on Saturday, July 22, 2017 to honor the new moon goddess and to drum by the meditation fire. The ritual began at 8pm, and with the clanking of sticks, beating of drums, and shaking of percussion, the trance work allowed members to speak to their honored dead and seek the will and advise of the Gods. Desert included a home made cream cake.

The members of SLPS gathered on Saturday, July 8, 2017 to honor the full moon goddesses. Columbiana was there in spirit, as the table cloth for 4th of July was wandering about the warehouse this year. With a storm raging, the magic was potent and powerful, drawing down the storm energy. Vice President Ashton Longhurst led the rite, taking over for President Cureton who will be moving for work next month.

SLPS gathered to celebrate the Summer Solstice Friday, June 23, 2017. After mowing the lawn, moving logs and stacking firewood, the ritual space was clean and ready. Part of doing ritual is coming together to prepare the space, whether clean or dirty, all parts should be a joint effort with the members.

The Holly King took over for the Oak King, acknowledging the path of the sun as it has reached its zenith and will now descend till Winter Solstice. The members sing “Midsummer” by Heather Alexander and read poetry, “Midsummer” by William Cullen Bryant. Almond marzipan cookies and sweet wine toasted the change of kings. The feast included chicken kebabs, lentils, and rice pilaf.
