WanderlandGoddessWanderland Iseum honors the eight seasonal Holy Days with ceremony from 12-2 on the days listed below. These natural turning points in the Earth’s cycle have been celebrated by people of many cultures throughout time. At these junctures, the energy alignment of sun, moon, and earth is particularly powerful.

These seasonal cycles form the basis of myth, ritual, planting customs, and our understanding of birth, growth, death, and renewal. Honoring the continuous cycles of nature brings us into a closer relationship with the living Earth.

For a more detailed description of a Holy Day Ceremony, check our calendar about three weeks prior to the date of the Holy Day.



At Wanderland Rainforest Iseum

Monday, April 30, 12-2

Winter has been long. Rain, hail, and wind still sweep the Coastal hills.  Yet, in a moment of sun, Earth glows with radiant green and flowers burst forth. The energy is rising.  Beltane (May Day) celebrates the sensual joy of Life– flowers, food, touch, color, song—and the power of Love.

This ceremony will be led by Louise Christianson and Lark Miller with a focus on the gift of Pleasure. There is no charge for the ceremony, but donations toward the upkeep of the rainforest sanctuary are greatly appreciated.  Ceremony begins at noon. Bring a flower(s) and a ribbon, length about 24 inches. Please do not come late.
