Why hello all!
We will be doing a clean up of our FB and email accounts this coming week.
If you are not attending USU (Logan campus) this fall or are an active member (community) you will be removed. You will have a chance to become a member in August during Day on the Quad/club rush or at our opening social. ALL dues are expected between these events but not after so please be mindful. It’s $10 for the school year or $20 for the school year and a club tshirt.
This can be done on the website thru paypal on the right side bar or in person with card or cash to one of our officers or Kassie.
For the email purge PLEASE email us if you want to stay on our email list. If you don’t send us an email your name will be removed. We will clean up the FB account Wednesday July 25th. Emails are expected by August 1st.
We would like to be more organized for the upcoming year and since we are a spiritual club, we also feels this protects our members privacy and helps maintain our ability to construct personalized, meaningful activities and rituals for all involved.
Thank you very much for your membership and time. We will see you all in August!
-Megan, Dano, Jason and Kassie
I have always watched the world through a broad lens. Growing up, my family experienced a lot of pain and a lot of death. It made me feel heavy, and it brought many burdens, but these experiences taught me about what life means, and they shaped me into the person I am now. I was never angry at God for the things that happened. I’m still not. I understood that being responsible for myself and loving others to the best of my ability are the only things I can do in this life, and that blame solves nothing. I turned to God without anger when times were hard and I never felt truly abandoned. I know now that the universe never abandons you, but that you often abandon yourself. The universe is always there waiting for you when you want to return home to yourself.
Yes we are active during the summer! Check out our Event calender on this website and see what we are up to!
PLEASE READ THE BELTAINE FB EVENT PAGE! We just changed a few things. The site is clean so we don’t need people up there Friday afternoon.
Please be at the site and ready to go by 7 pm. yes ritual starts at sundown but it would be disruptive to show up later. **This is a closed ritual. Remember USUPA dues need to be paid before attending and you have to have been abiding by attendance rules. Why? because we want a safe environment both physically and spiritually and knowing YOU before helps create that. Non-members are not allowed( exception is spouses)**
0.6 miles from the gate in Green Canyon will be our ritual site and campsite will be just above that. please park by the USUPA banner and walk up the trail to the site. Please bring stories/poetry/songs to share over the Beltaine fires. please see the website for ritual details.
We need the following volunteers:
- 4 people to call the directions
- A man and a woman to start each of the Beltaine Fires
- 1 or 2 face-painters
We need everyone participating to bring these items along with their camping gear (if you are staying the night):
- at least 1 bundle of firewood (the fires will go all night)
- A bright strip of cloth for clooties
- Drum or tambourine (if you’ve got them)
- Bright clothing
- Colorful flowers
(ritual written by Megan)
First, Megan explains the ritual and everyone takes their shoes off and enters circle through Eastern gate.
Directions and Deities
We will now call the directions for protection, strength, and support.
We call upon the powers of the East and welcome the winds of awareness to this circle.
May the winds continue to shape the land around us,
All the while providing us with the vision for change.
Let us see the beauty of the Earth through the eyes of the wind;
Let us see the rustling of the leaves, the soft bending of blades of grass.
Let us see the Earth as it is and as it can be.
We call upon the powers of the South and welcome the fires of change to this circle.
May the fires be tamed and provide only the destruction that is needed for rebirth,
All the while teaching us of the importance of transformation.
Let us see the beauty of the Earth through the eyes of the fire.
Let us see the cycles of life and death, the brilliant green that rises from the ash.
Let us see the Earth as it is reborn.
You Go HERE! ” It’s probably easiest to take 1200 E (the street that runs East of USU) and follow it until you hit 1900 N, then take a right and follow it all the way up. Eventually you’ll see a pavilion to your left (before you get to the actual canyon parking area); that’s where we’ll be ”-Megan
It is hard to read on the map but the street is actually 1900 N. Cell phones don’t work in the canyon so please be sure to arrive early/on time ( that’s 4 pm) We will do our best to hang the banner from where it can be seen on the road to make it easy for you.
I love being pagan. I love the way it lets me make connections that are meaningful with nature, with my community, and with myself. I love the way that simple archetypes and symbols are like mirrors to my self, how they let me explore all of life as a deep reflection of my own, and celebrate it. Read more
