Spring Mysteries Festival @ Fort Flagler
Apr 9 – Apr 12 all-day
Spring Mysteries Festival @ Fort Flagler

The Spring Mysteries Festival is a recreation of the Eleusinian Mysteries, the ancient initiatory rites of classical Greek Paganism which were conducted in secrecy for over two thousand years before the common era. The ATC brings you this continuing initiatory cycle, now in its 35th year of continuous presentation, including the Rites of Passage for youngsters coming into their adulthood in our community; and the Adult Affirmation of Path, for those new to the path.

This year is extra special for us as The Aquarian Tabernacle Church of Canada will be installing a new Archpriestess, our very own Mary Malinski!

For newcomers: Welcome! You will be Mystai (the Greeks’ name for participants), and will undergo the Lesser Mysteries.

For those returning (who have gone through the Lesser Mysteries in a prior year) Welcome back! You will undergo the Greater Mysteries, or Epoptaic Initiation. The Greater Mysteries are for adults 18 and older who have attended the Lesser Mysteries in a previous year, and for children who are between 13 and 17 years old who have also attended the Lesser Mysteries in a prior year, and have gone through the Youth Rites of Passage.

This festival is packed full of various workshops, classes, and lectures about all aspects of Wicca, Paganism, and the ATC Tradition. They are often hosted by well-known elders and members of the regional and national community. “Friday Night at the Apollo Theater” is always a lot of fun with a Talent Show and Auction. There are also amazing Shrines to many of the Greek Gods, as well as celebrations, bardic circles, music, drumming, and magic running throughout the entire weekend.

Merchants from across the land come to offer their special wares for sale in the Snack Kitchen area, the source of between-meals snacks, sweet delights, and ESPRESSO to jump-start your mornings and prolong your nights! Indoor bunking is in heated dorms where lots of hot water showers are available. Standard meal service is mainstream (unless otherwise indicated on your registration form) to suit every taste, with big servings of wholesome, tasty food prepared by our staff of professional cooks and many volunteers. No one ever goes away from our kitchen hungry!

Beltane Celebration and Potluck @ Halbe Hall
May 3 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Join us as we celebrate the union of the God and the Goddess with the festival of Beltaine! The weather is warming, the air is filled with the scent of flowers, the birds sing their mating calls and a fiery passion stirs deep within all nature. The eternal race for survival begins anew as the goddess is courted once again.

In the Celtic tradition the two greatest festivals of all are Beltane and Samhain. Today we celebrate Beltane, the time of year where the weather starts to get warmer, and the first sprouts of the food crops can be seen making their way out through the rich earth. Beltane is about prosperity, fertility, and the strengthening of bonds. Young men and women would jump over the Beltane fire to attract wives and husbands, pregnant women would jump over the fire to ensure a safe delivery, and couples would jump over the fire to strengthen their bond. This is a time of year where Greenwood marriages are traditionally performed. The bond would last for a year and a day and then could either be renewed the next year or dissolved if the partnership didn’t work out. The May Pole would also be placed in a hole on the ground and people would dance around it with ribbons. Dancing around the May Pole brings fertility and prosperity for the coming year.

Please prepare a meal to “share” with us online, and RSVP to let us know you are coming. Children are very welcome at this event.

The Circle of the Sacred Muse is an open Wiccan community serving Courtenay, Comox, Campbell River and the surrounding communities on Northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Our circle is accepting of all, regardless of race, gender or orientation. Whether you are an experienced covener, new to the craft or just curious, you are welcome here. As we are told in the Charge of the Goddess, we bring “mirth and reverence” to our rituals.

We ask that you RSVP for rituals so we can make sure we have enough supplies for everyone. Dates may be subject to change. Feel free to contact us for more information!

Recommended donation for Circles is $2.00-$5.00 for members, and $5.00-10.00 for non-members. You can make donations or pay for your membership using PayPal on our website. Children do not need to pay membership. Please do not let money stop you from coming to Circle. We would rather have *you* there!
