The Wheel of the Year - Our Ancient Calendar - $15 / $20
This is a 2 hour class
Modern Pagans follow two calendars: the standard calendar used by most of contemporary society, and a far older one used by ancient cultures. This older calendar is called the "Wheel of the Year". It features the 8 holidays celebrated by early mankind, consisting of 4 solar holidays and 4 seasonal ones. Many prehistoric monuments, like Stonehenge, were built to indicate the 8 holidays of the Wheel. In this class we will examine the attributes of each holiday and discuss ways to incorporate these ancient days into our modern lives.
Course Materials: 1 candle in each of the following colors: red, pink, green, blue, yellow, orange, purple, black.
A personal notebook or journal.
