Join us for SBC’s Beltane ritual

Saturday April 27, 2019
gather 2:30pm
ritual 3pm

San Juan Bautista Picnic Area, Hellyer County Park
985 Hellyer Avenue, San Jose, CA
(Use the Velodrome entrance, We’re the first picnic area on the left)

Celebrate the joys of being in nature and in community, weaving that energy back into our lives.

Dress comfortably and bring a chair or blanket if you will need to sit during ritual.

Please bring a dish to share for the potluck and suggested donation $10-$20 (no one turned away for lack of funds). The park has a $6 parking fee, so carpooling is encouraged.

Guidelines for Potluck:

Please bring food that is ready to serve.

If possible, please label your food so those with food restrictions will know what’s in it.

Bring something you like and will want, that way you are guaranteed to like something.

Most of our potlucks are meals (unless the invite says otherwise) so main dishes, salads, side dishes, desserts, beverages to share are all welcome.

Ritual Etiquette:

Be polite, friendly, and considerate of others.

Use common sense.

Ask the owner before touching items (drums, altar item, jewelry etc.)

Stop chatting and turn off your phone when the ritual is about to start.

Rituals are participatory, so please join in when asked.

A cast circle is a sacred space so don’t be disruptive.

Assist in the post-event clean-up – please take care of your own

Be discreet if you run into people elsewhere, not all Pagans are public
about it.

The requested donations are used to pay for our insurance and site
rental fees. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, but these
contributions are essential to our continued existence.
