Descriptions of Online Events:
2:00–2:55 pm: Young Adult & Occult Discussion Group: Ethical Beliefs Within Pagan Spaces
Young Adult & Occult is a space for Pagans in their late teens and early twenties (roughly 15-25) to build community and learn together that is held monthly at OLOTEAS events (and sometimes offsite). At this month's Young Adult & Occult we'll have a group discussion about ethical beliefs within Pagan cultural and community spaces.

3:00 pm Zoom Opening Circle (with Laura)
3:15–4:45 pm Zoom Workshop: Natural Healing 101 (with Stephanie)
In honor of Brigid, Goddess of Poetry, Healing, and the Forge, we will explore the realm of natural healing as it intersects with Pagan identity and practice. With so much information available to us about this topic, what does natural healing mean, how do we assess different resources and techniques, and what are the risks and benefits?
5:00 pm Community Announcements followed by...
Zoom Ritual: Fetching Back the Light (online with Stephanie)
The Solstice has passed and the days are getting longer, but are we feeling more light in our lives yet? In this meditative ritual we will make an active effort to deliberately bring light back into the world, for ourselves and for the good of all.
If you are able, bring a candle, matches/lighter, and something to write on and with to the ritual.
6:00 pm Zoom Closing Circle (with Jayson)
6:30 pm Zoom meeting closes
Descriptions of In-Person Events:
6:45 pm Gather in person at Meridian Playground park
7:00 pm In-Person Ritual: Waning Wolf Moon Ritual (with Jane)
The light of the year returns, the full moon flares, but then dims and the world seems to dip into darkness again. The post-holiday lull, the return to school rush, the new year's resolutions, the pile up of work, and current events... sometimes it feels like it's all too much. In this self-care ritual, we will look for something that we can set aside for a time—not banish or get rid of, but something we can come back to—like the moon fading, resting, then growing back to fullness.

In addition to our virtual programming this month, we are meeting at Meridian Playground park in Seattle for an in-person ritual.
