May Day has its origins in Beltane, an ancient Celtic seasonal festival and ritual day, which celebrates the fertility of Spring and the upcoming birth of Summer. During this special time, bonfires were lit signifying the returning intensity and power of the sun as the season drew closer to Summer. The fire also symbolized purification, healing and protection.
This Sunday, May 1st at 12:00pm EST, I invite you to celebrate May Day and experience a Beltane Processional Ritual of Transformation with traditional music to revel and connect you with the cycles of nature. The power of the fire element awaits you to initiate something new and beautiful in your life.

This peace within will then be shed abroad into the world.
