Ritual & Magic
We have been creating, remembering, and recreating ancient land and song based rituals and ceremonies for summer solstice, samhain/day of the dead, Brigid’s Day, spring equinox, harvest and more. Need help putting together a ritual for your farm, home, or community organization? We can help you with songs and ceremonies based on ancient traditional Slavic rituals and folk magic.
