ESC Beltane Ceremony, “As One”

11:45 am - 12:45 pm

Beltane marks the return of the Green Man, the opening of the Gathering Season, and the beginning of the planting time. Join ESC as we gather at USG for our first sabbat since the start of the pandemic to honor the “Awakened Green” and plant a sunflower garden in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. (Seedlings will be provided.) For information, contact ESC Coordinators at

Wheel of the Year Holidays (Sabbats)
ESC gathers to celebrate the eight Wheel of the Year holidays, or sabbats, of the Neopagan/Wiccan calendar. However, we encourage practitioners of nature-based traditions worldwide to come and share their Earth-honoring customs and insights in community. Those with an interest in, but no prior experience with, nature-based spirituality are also welcome! More information about EarthSpirit Circle at USG can be found on our webpage.

Linked here is a list of the Wheel of the Year holidays, a modern interpretation of their themes (there are many), and the month in which each is celebrated.

Wheel of the Year Celebration Planning Meetings
Anyone interested in suggesting, presenting, or leading a celebration piece for the next sabbat is welcome to attend. Linked here is the EarthSpirit Circle Planning Meeting and Celebration Schedule for 2022.
