The first Witch's Night of the New Year went great. We had people standing in the store so many new people came. This one was very different than the rest. The group wants to start doing more "event" type of gatherings. We talked about having open circles to helping pick up trash along the rivers. There will even be a name for the group picked at the next Witch's Night! Everyone also wanted to meet more than once a month so there will be more Witch's Night to look forward to.
For next Witch's Night you can look forward to another ritual performed by one of the memebers.
February 2, 2013
For Imbolc we had a ritual outside. All enjoyed the coven style ritual that was performed. The Witch's Night group picked a name and will now be known as Enlightened Circle. We also did some energy and meditation work. All enjoyed this and you can look forward to more such work at Witch's Night. Plus everyone enjoyed the food and drinks.
Next Witch's Night will be held on the new moon. This will be at one of the membrer's homes and she has offered the use of the hot tub. For the New Moon will will be doing more energy work and meditation work.
February 10, 2013
The New Moon Witch's Night was a very relaxing night. We enjoyed sitting in a hot tub talking. Great way to relax and enjoy the night. No spell work was performed this night but it was a great way to recharge our batteries. Donnie and I have not felt this relaxed in a long time.
Next Witch's Night will be held on the Full Moon. We will be meeting at the store then going over to the Hot Springs Pool for an evening to enjoy the full moon in the Pool's healing waters.
February 25, 2013
Enlightened circle enjoyed another relaxing night. The healing waters of the Hot Springs pool were a great place for the group to perform healing energy work. And when the full moon came up we did more energy work for wisdom from the Goddess. All enjoyed the night out.
The next Witch's Night will be here at the store. We will be sharing our favorite New Moon spells. We will also be talking about future events including an interview with the Glenwood Newspaper.

April 21, 2013 Earth Day
For Earth Day Enlightened Circle met to help clean up Mother Earth. What better way to show what being a pagan is all about than to help out the environment. The group picked up trash along the Rio Grande trail that runs south of Glenwood Springs. They city of Glenwood Springs donated trash bags to our cause and we were thanked by many bike riders along the way. It was a great work out that left everyone feeling good about helping out.

May 1, 2013 Beltane
Enlightened circle met in Basalt at a member's home for Beltane. We talked and enjoyed appetizers before the ritual. Even with the snow the ritual fires kept it warm in the circle. We performed an outside ritual with two ritual fires to welcome Beltane. We blessed seeds to plant in our garden and danced around the bonfires. There was even a maze in the front yard.

May 25, 2013 Full Moon
What a great night! We had one of the largest turn outs we've ever had. We celebrated Witch's Night at Veltus Park in Glenwood Springs. All enjoyed talking before the ceremony at dusk. It was great to have nice enough weather to practice outside. The lilac's are in bloom and you could smell them from the ritual circle plus the grass was cooling under your bare feet. We honored the Mother Goddess that night and all felt energized after the ritual. Our next ritual will be for Litha.
June 21, 2012 Litha
We celebrated Litha by starting out the evening with dedication ceremonies. All who participated enjoyed the special ceremony. Once it was dark we went to the fairy ring we made to honor the fairies. Most of us were able to see them at some point that night and enjoyed thier company. We had a great BBQ and I thank everyone who brought food for us to all share. For the month of July the group is so busy that we are waiting till Aug. 1st for our next celebration.
August 1, 2013 Lughnassadh

We meet to celebrate Mabon, or the Fall Equinox. When the day and night are equal length.

It was a nice evening enjoyed everyone's company, despite all the rain.
October 31, 2013 Halloween
We meet to celebrate Halloween one of my personal favorite holidays. We dressed up in Halloween costumes again this year but this time we had a full ritual lead by two of the members of Enlightened Circle. We enjoyed the "treats" everyone brought and good company after the ritual.
Because I was unable to join this Witch's Night the group got together just to visit and enjoy each other's company.

April 12, 2014
What a great Witch's Night! We had some more new faces. The divination night was a success and we will definitely have another one. Lots of spirits came through and had special messages for their loved ones. It was emotional on several levels but enjoyed by all.
June 21, 2014-Litha
What a nice day to welcome in summer! It wasn't too hot and even with the clouds we still got some sunshine. This day is for dedication and we had the great honor to dedicate three new ladies to their path in life this day. It truly was a magical experience! I was not able to attend the whole event but everyone enjoyed the rest of their evening. I hope everyone took advantage of a great day to see our fairy friends as well.
August 1st, 2014-Lughnassahn
What a nice change of pace going back to the old format of having Witch's Night at the store again. We have had a huge change of members and for the better of all. We are now once again a group who is truely here to learn from each other. It was a wonderful evening that went by way too quick!

April 18, 2015
This was a smaller Witch's Nights but we all had a nice evening talking about divination. I brought my black mirror for everyone to see.
May 23, 2015
Good to see a new face at Witch's Night. We talked about gem/stone magick and I even brought some of my favorites rocks to show. Due to the remodel we've done at the store we will be meeting here then going over to the library for Witch's Nights. We all liked going over their on Feb. 21st and feel this is the best place to hold Witch's Night other than the store. Now you don't have to bring a chair!
We are still holding Witch's Night but I will not be adding to this any more. I think you get the idea of what Witch's Night is about from the above. Come join us and find out for yourself! Blessed Be!
