On Sunday March 23rd, Lansing's Cedarsong Grove shall be hosting their annual Ostara Rite at Camp Frances in Charlotte, Michigan from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Though set up and preparation for the event begins at 1:00 o'clock, it is advisable to arrive a bit beforehand if this is your first time attending this event.
Ritual itself is scheduled to begin at 2:00, and as always, it is advisable to be sure to allow for our unpredictable Michigan road delays so that you can be on time. Also, as this is a campground, it is advisable to bring sturdy footwear.
The event itself is set up tentatively as a pot luck, but it is wise to check by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure that plans have not changed. This would also be a good way to enable the event organizers to round out a meal menu. Courtesy is very cool.
There is a cabin at the site, however if it is possible, the ritual is to be held outside. This is in accordance with the philosophy of Nature being the preferred Sacred Space. Keep this in mind, and dress appropriately for the weather conditions.
Camp Francis is located at 1501 S. Cochran Avenue. The locale is lovely, and is a gently touched area where you will be able to enjoy the celebration in the embrace of the Wind and the Wood.
This event is an open Ritual, and if you have never had a chance to experience the actual Love with which a Druid Ritual is conducted, this is a great event. New beginnings for the Earth, and for yourself.
