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 for Lughnassadh to celebrate the first harvest holiay. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed the food that everyone brought. To celebrate the holiday we each told something we were thankful for. It was a relaxing evening!
September 22, 2013 Mabon
We meet to celebrate Mabon, or the Fall Equinox. When the day and night are equal length. We all enjoyed a nice ritual and celebrated with a home cooked dinner including Cornish game hens, mash potatoes and squash casserole and finished with homemade apple pie. 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.
December 21, 2013 Yule
This is our 2nd Yule celebration and with the success of the last year's event we had another sit down dinner. We had a wonderful outside Yule ritual then came in for a good meal. After dinner we had a gift exchange and talk about what we are grateful for. It was a good evening for all.
January 11, 2014

February 2, 2014
We had a beautiful Imbolc night in Basalt. We had a small ritual for Imbolc outside in the cold weather but with the fire it was warm. After we had a BBQ and good discussion as usual. We even had the super bowl game on for anyone who wanted to watch.
March 20, 2014
Spring is here! We celebrated Ostara in Glenwood Springs that night. We have an egg hunt which was enjoyed by young and old"er" alike. After the egg hunt we enjoyed getting to know some new members to the Circle. We finished up the evening with a ritual to honor the start of Spring.
April 12, 2014
