Beltane Ceremony at Glastonbury Goddess Hall, Somerset.

Beltane always brings the crowds out and tonight was no
exception as around 200 people gathered in the hall to celebrate Rhiannon’s
festival of fertility and the union of the May Queen and the Green God. There
was standing room only as the priestesses opened the circle and beckoned the
goddess to bless us with her presence. In her honour we sang and danced that
night.

Outside we savoured strawberries and chocolate as the
Maypole was erected by the Green and Red men and dancers dipped and whirled
with the brightly coloured ribbons. The spirited energy of Beltane animated us
all in song around the pole accompanied by shamanic drum beats. Then came the
jumping of the Beltane fire to cleanse and rejuvenate. I jumped twice – I had a
lot of be cleansed of this year! Closing the circle the ceremony drew to a
reluctant close but I’d like to thank the priestesses for all their fabulous
festivals which are so anchoring and guiding for me as I travel the wheel of
the year.
