FRIDAY

Rite of Hospitality
Join us at the beginning of the weekend's festivities for a simple ritual of hospitality. Be welcomed and received as honored guests. Stay for an open discussion of Midian's 13 Noble Virtues.


SATURDAY

Children's Activites
more info coming soon

ADF Druid Ritual
In our third year presenting an ADF ritual at SIDHE, we will continue the work of healing the earth, our communities, and ourselves, allowing bears and other wildlike and people to coexist with each other in harmony as their full and whole selves.

Rune Class
Come join Marcus in a discussion on the history,  origins,  and use of the runes.  This is an interactive discussion so expect to be involved! 

Feast of the Gods
Our annual community meal is a pitch-in feast that honors the land, the Ancestors, and the Gods.Bring something to share. Monetary donations are also welcome to shore up any defecits in case folks forgot (or in the event that ou just don't want to make something) You can use the PayPal button on the registration page to contribute money.

If you have food allergies, be sure to bring something you know is safe for you. If you bring something that needs to be warm, please bring a hot plate, crock pot, or other warming tray. (We have electricity!) We also encourage bringing a washable plate, cup, bowl, and utensils to cut down on paper waste. We’ll have washing stations set up. (We'll also have some of the disposable type on hand, so don't worry about pitching those in. Bring your favorite foods/drinks to share or send money in advance and let us take care of it!)
 

Sumbel
At Saturday night's fire, enjoy a (sometimes rowdy, sometimes reverant) round of mead-poured toasts. At a sumbel toasts are drunk to the community, Gods, and the Mighty Dead. Rather than a toast, a person might also offer a boast or some story, song, or poem that has significance. At the end of the toast/story/etcr, the person offering it drinks from the horn, and in doing so “drinks in” what he spoke. (We will have two drinking horns -- one with mead and the other with a non-alcoholic drink for those under 21 or wishing to abstain for other reasons.) 

 

SUNDAY

Rite of Leave-Taking
Before we part paths, join us as we share blessings with each other for the journey home (and beyond).
