Ostara Recap

Last night was our CUUPS Ostara Circle, a beautiful ritual led by Bonnie and based off a previous Ostara ritual composed by Dolores. We had 35 in the circle plus another 7 in childcare, which is a good turnout for us.

My week of preparation was helpful in a general sense, but I can’t say it made a huge difference in the way I experienced the ritual. Still, I think it was a good start, and I will definitely do it again in preparation for future sabbats. Huge spiritual leaps are rare – more frequently we make progress in bit and pieces, two steps forward and one step back. Patience and persistence are considered virtues for a reason.

I have little patience. Persistence, now that’s another matter…

About John Beckett

I’m a Druid in the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. I’m an ordained priest in the Universal Gnostic Fellowship. I’m the Coordinating Officer of the Denton, Texas Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. This year I’m also serving as a member of the Board of Trustees of CUUPS National. I’m a member of the Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

I write as a spiritual practice. It helps me organize my thoughts and work through ideas and concepts. It helps me evaluate my beliefs and practices against my core values and against what I know (or at least, what I think I know) to be true. It helps me interpret my experiences (religious and otherwise) in ways that are both meaningful and honest.
