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 November 22nd, 2014
Ritual: A Super Dark Ritual of Penultimate Darkness in the Dark . . . really. (with Jane)
We now descend into the dark time of the year. As the sunlight fades from our waking memory, we are left only with the dark of night. Each day, minute by minute, it closes in around us, cloaks us, surrounds us; a darkness so dark it’s like being in a closet with all the lights off, except without the crack under the door, which inevitably lets some light in, even if you stuff a towel or blanket against it. In this ritual we will face our fears, conquer them, and make ourselves stronger through totally serious examination of things that are fearful. This ritual contains some serious dark business… maybe more darkness than you can handle… (note: sunset is at 4:26pm and there will be no moon, so the ritual will be for really reals dark)
Kids Workshop: Shadow Magick (with Ruthie)
The dark part of the year can be a scary time. All Younglings are welcome to join us as we talk about how to best face and deal with our fear in both practical and magickal ways. We will also be making shadow art and telling stories with our shadows.
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.
We also encourage environmental stewardship and support religious freedom through grassroots actions and working with existing organizations dedicated to similar goals. We collect donations for Northwest Harvest at all OLOTEAS events.
