Beltane at Gaia’s Garden 

Join us at Gaia’s Garden for a delicious evening honouring the season of Beltane.

Lover Earth

FEEL HER

mailout1As she burst into glorious bloom, erupting in delectable rapture, of colour, scent, taste, texture. It’s time to Drink. Her. In. Caress her as you lay on the grass, draw in the scent of honey suckle, wattle, wisteria. Nights grow warmer, Moist fresh air caresses skin.

Is that rain, or the trickle of sweat down your back?

HEAR HER 

The increased bussing of insects, the song of birds, Her voice calling out in the throes of sensuous ecstasy. ‘I am alive, I am here, I am rising’

TASTE HER

The plump textures of the abundant bounty of her body, ripe, fragrant, inviting,

She yearns for you to take a bite.

We call to you Rhiannon Avalonian Goddess of love, and breath you in!

We call to you Aphrodite, Persephone, Magdalene, Holy whore, ‘Lover Earth’ Divine, and breath you in!

This is Beltane, Season of Lover and Beloved

Wear red, or many colours, as the blooming of Lover Earth.

Bring a plate of food to share (Locally sourced preferred) and any altar items of beauty you wish to embalm with the energy of Beltane.

The Wheel of the Year at Gaia's Garden

Women are invited to join us to celebrate the eight festivals at 6pm for 6:30pm ritual commencement on the following dates. We are using a Wheel of the Year adapted to the Southern Hemisphere and modified to acknowledge the seven Indigenous seasons for South East Australia.

The traditional festivals were developed over thousands of years in parts of Europe where they celebrated the changing of the seasons and the shifts in the land such as harvest and spring. Not surprisingly our Celtic forebears brought these traditions with them although the seasons and the land is very different.

Like other people, we have translated the festivals to the southern hemisphere. We have more recently acknowledged the seasons for our part of the land and the placing of the elements as fits our place on the land.
