Join Dancing Lights Grove in celebrating Bealtaine!
We will rekindle our hearthfire from the nine woods sacred to our Grove, and lay our fire on the body of the Earth, establishing our worship outdoors for the light half of the year.

We will hear the story of the coming of the Tuatha Dé Danann to Ireland with their skills and treasures, and bring honour to the tribe of gods.

We will tie ribbons onto our Tree as the May bush, and then, purifying ourselves between two fires, we embrace this strange between-time as a time of transformative possibility and wonder.

WHERE IS IT?
