Wheel of the Year


Lammas Grain Ripening in the Sun
Lammas

August 1


Lammas,(LA-mas) or "Loaf Mass" (Anglo-Saxon), also known as Lugnasadh (Irish Celt), L�nasdal (Scottish), Calan Aust (Welsh), Lugunassatis (Gaul), and Feast of First Fruits, is celebrated on or around August 1st. Lammas celebrates the first of the major harvest festivals of the year, that of grain or "Corn".

In England during the medieval era tenants were required to present to their landlord the first of the freshly harvested wheat crop. The first corn from this harvest was baked into a ceremonial loaf and given as an offering to the Gods.The last sheaf of corn was not consumed but kept back and made into a effigy to represent the spirit of the corn and the harvest, sometimes called John Barlycorn. The effigy was placed at the center of the feasting table and then next year when the fields are being prepared for the sowing of new crops, it was ploughed back into the soil so that the spirit of the sun and the corn did not die.

Among pagans, (especially those with Celtic roots), the most common name for this holiday is Lughnasadh, (loo-na-sa), in honor not of the God Lugh, but that of his foster mother Tailtiu. Tailtiu died while clearing the plain of Breg in County Meath for agriculture. Lugh instituted funerary games called �enach Tailteann in her honour, which continued to be celebrated as late as the 18th century.

The daylight is now visibly waning as the mature Lord of the Forest and Field becomes more the Wise Sage and his power awareness begins to pass from without to within. The Pregnant Mother Goddess rules beside Him as they both bask in the bounty of Nature in this, the beginning of the harvest season.

The Power of Runes


Rune Pop Up Day!
With John Hyatt (aka Jan Tjeerd)

Intro to the Runes class at 12:30pm limited seating $20

Stop in today to learn about and experience Runes with runeworker John Hijatt (aka Jan Tjeerd).

Runes are a divination tool rooted in Germanic/Norse spiritual practices for insight and wisdom today. From the time these mysteries were revealed to Odin and passed on to humans from Heimdall, the runic energies give us insight from the realms of Germanic cosmology of the Nine Worlds.

John will have a display of hand-crafted rune sets, talismans, and god-boxes for sale. Take advantage of this opportunity to chat with a runeworker, see rune sets, and ask questions.

Don't know about runes? Sign up for the beginning rune class at 12:30 (limited seating). In this class, John will introduce you to the expansive realm of the runes and how they can be a part of your spiritual experience. Learn the basic meanings of the 24 runes, how to start using them, and connections to Deities and realms in Germanic mythology they are connected to. .

John Hyatt is a member of the San Diego Pagan Community for over a decade. He is co-founder of Coast Oak Grove (San Diego’s Druid Grove) and co-leader of the Kindred of the Northern Hammer (a Heathen Kindred celebrating the Gods of the Northern lands). He is devoted to Freya and Odin and is currently active in the Lore Program of The Troth.

John is honored to teach, read runes, and lead ritual at The Tree of Life. He believes community to be an essential part of our practice and a great place to start is at The Tree of Life.

The Power of Runes


Runes have been used in Northern European lands (Germanic, Scandinavian, and British) since the second century BCE for a variety of purposes. These purposes included writing, branding, protection, magic, and divination. The progression of the Roman Empire and its religious practice eventually rendered the rune systems all but obsolete.

Archaeological studies of the last 200 years have brought the runic systems back into a place of interest. With the growth of the modern neo-Pagan movement and Heathen practice (such as Asatru), runes have made a resurgence in North America and their native lands primarily used for magic and divination.

This class will explore the power of the runes as we connect with them for magical use and as a tool to gain insights from the Gods & Goddesses. We will touch lightly on the history and meanings of the runes then learn how to use them in our practice wisely and effectively.
