Spirituality Questionnaire

July 1, 2012 at 9:32 pm (Coven, Pathseeking) (, , , , , , , , , , )

In working to write out the concept and practice of a Pathseeker tradition I created a Spirituality Questionnaire. The purpose is for both myself to articulate my feelings and path as well as to give to those I practice with now (or possibly in the future) to see how their path looks and how to mesh that path into a group setting.

I feel you need an idea of Who/What/How before you can move forward with a project.

If you’re interested, please answer some or all of these questions. You can do it for yourself or if you’d like to share you can email me at maera (at) pathseeker.org.

I am typing up my answers now, and will be sharing them soon.

 

  • Describe a time you felt a close connection with the Divine:
  • Do you feel a closer connection to the Goddess or the God?
  • Can you explain or describe why you have a closer connection to one or the other?
  • Describe your view of the Goddess
  • Describe your view of the God
  • Do you have a patron deity? If yes how did you make that connection?
  • How would you describe your current spiritual path?
  • Explain the importance of initiation in you spiritual practice
  • Explain the importance of the Moon in your spiritual practice
  • Explain the importance of the Sun in your spiritual practice
  • Do you hold solitary ritual or attend group ritual for the New Moon? Full Moon? Why or why not?
  • Describe the place Sabbats hold in your spiritual practice
  • Which Sabbat do you feel the closest connection to? Why?
  • Describe the part tools play in your practice
  • What place does spellworking hold in your spiritual practice?
  • Does divination play a part in your practice? How? Which types?
  • Do you have any connection to spirit guides, totem animals, or other helpers?
  • Have you ever lead a group ritual? What type? If yes, describe the experience.
  • How much time do you devote to solitary practice each month?
  • If you are in a coven, or looking to join a coven, what part would you expect this group to play in your spiritual growth?
  • How much time would you expect to devote to a spiritual group each month?

Beltane Ritual

May 6, 2012 at 9:00 am (Ritual) (, )

“Hand to hand we cast the circle,”
Clasp the hand to the left.
“In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust.”
Continue around the circle. As each person clasps the hand to the left:
“In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust.”

“We consecrate this circle of power to the Goddess and God.
Here may they manifest and bless their children.
This is a time that is not a time,
In a place that is not a place,
On a day that is not a day.
We come now to celebrate Beltane!
We stand before the veil of mysteries.
May the Lord and Lady help and protect us on our magical journey.” Read the rest of this entry »

A Whirlwind

August 5, 2011 at 9:17 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , )

I was blessed to be able to take a two week working vacation on the East Coast. We spent a fair amount of time in upstate New York, I was able to spend five amazing days in New York City, and we had a weekend in Boston.

I’ll post up some of the things I have in the wings when I have a chance, and get some new rituals up as well.

Here’s to hoping you are all well.

Blessed Be.

Beltane 2011

Sample Passage:
Sabbat Invocation (High Priestess):
“The power of the sun mingles now with the power of the earth. The Lord and Lady unite as their love blossoms into new life. Even as the cold sits in our bones, we can see the warmth and promise of growth. Let this season stir in you passions and motivations. See your everyday with new eyes. These are the blessings our Lord and Lady have bestowed upon us, their children. With each new bud and blossom, with each new birth and amorous advance, see the quickening energies of the Divine. Let your soul be open to the awe-inspiring beauty that surrounds us. May the blessings of Beltane warm you like bale fires upon the hills.”  Read the rest of this entry »
