These celebrations are open to Pagans and people curious about Paganism, though this is not to be viewed as a spectator sport. People are expected to join circle and participate to their ability. Levels of participation vary, from standing (or sitting) in circle – to active rolls (such as calling quarters). No one will be asked to do something outside of their comfort zone, though participation is encouraged – as all participants add to the synergistic energy of each celebration.
Children are welcome to attend ritual, and guardians should discretely answer any questions that children may ask, or explain rituals and terms in greater detail for such curious minds.
A children’s activity table is also available, including colouring, crafts, books, and puzzles. If children do not want to participate in ritual, they can play at the activity table and also observe ritual from here. We ask that children under the age of seven (7) be supervised by a guardian at all times – therefore, volunteer adult(s) supervising the children’s activity table will not be actively participating in ritual.
Due to the family-friendly nature of this event, we will not be conducting any controversially dark or overly-provocative rituals.
Sabbat celebrations will be spiritual, but PG.
The Hub – 251 E 11th Avenue, Vancouver, BC.
This 550 square foot space includes a full kitchen and two bathrooms. The HUB is easily accessible by public transit, and free parking is also available in front of the building or in the parking lot accessible via the alley behind. (Their bathrooms use air fresheners, so people with scent or chemical issues should take necessary precautions.)
The Hub has an elevator (operated with a key), so anyone requiring the elevator should let us know in advance or ask someone else in attendance that can use stairs to find ED to coordinate elevator access.
$5 door fee ages 13+ (children 12 and under are free), plus a potluck dish to share.
All events happen on the Friday before the Sabbat, with the exceptions of holiday long weekends.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Ritual begins at 6:30 p.m. (potluck to follow).
