Welcome to OLOTEAS!
Our Lady of the Earth and Sky is a non-denominational Pagan church. We are a volunteer run, non-profit religious organization providing family-oriented Pagan religious services and workshops since 1995. We are dedicated to promoting religious tolerance and freedom and environmental sustainability.
OLOTEAS monthly services include a workshop, potluck feast, and ritual in a beautiful natural setting featuring a stone circle, heated swimming pool, hot tub, and acres of wetlands.
Our next Event Day is:
Saturday December 27, 2014
Ritual: Home for the Holidays (with Ananda)
Home. Everybody has one whether currently or in memory or dream. Whether where you live or somewhere you only go once a month. Home is where we want to be for the holidays. The place where our culture and traditions are shared.Bring a midwinter holiday tradition to share in circle. Share a song, story, dance, or activity. Bring a holiday snack or dessert to pass around (preferably a finger food), or a beverage (non-alcoholic). Bring an object to show, or tell us about a tradition that can't be brought into circle. This can be from any tradition close to your heart, whether one you currently practice, something from your past, or a tradition you would like in your future. Religious or secular. Pagan or cowen. Please be able to share in two minutes or less so that everyone can have a turn. We will share our traditions in circle, making merry together and strengthening our spiritual home and our community.
Note: This month's ritual will be held indoors.
Workshop: Crossing the Streams: Christian Faith, Pagan Practice (with Morgan)
Paganism and Christianity are often regarded as being mutually exclusive spiritual paths, but does that have to be the case? In this workshop we will explore the often-contentious relationship between Christianity and Paganism and discuss the intersections between them. We'll also hear from several people whose personal practices combine Pagan and Christian elements.
Kids Workshop: Birthday Party for the Sun King! (With Ruthie)
There are so many wonderful traditions and symbols that are associated with this time of year, but most go back to the Longest Night and the Birth of the Sun. Come prepared for birthday cupcakes and fun Solstice crafts!
OLOTEAS community events are open to the public. All are welcome, regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, political affiliation, gender identity, or gender preference. For specific concerns or questions about accessibility, please email OLOTEAS at oloteas.org.
