Honor the Earth and all beings
Gather for traditional holidays that mark the cycles of nature
Travel a labyrinth, enter a stone circle, sing at a peace cairn...

We walk to honor & greet the sacred sites, then gather for seasonal rituals based on earth-centered traditional Pagan practices of Celtic Europe. Deepen your connection to the Earth and the places you love

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Join us at EarthSpirit’s home in the Hilltowns of Western Massachusetts for our first open house and seasonal celebration of the year!

EarthSpirit Beltane Maypole celebration: Sunday, April 29 1:00pm – 5:00pm Sacred Land walk & potluck feast (with Dawn, Sue & others). At 1pm walk and honor the land, then at 3pm gather for Beltane's joyous holiday maypole by the pond, marking the fullness of Spring & new beginnings! Bring babies!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sacred Land open houses begin with a walk of the sacred sites on the land, followed by a celebration of the Celtic holidays from Beltane to Samhain.

Please attend the sacred land walk if you have not before (usually at 1pm before the 3pm ritual, except on Solstice). All rituals are outside if at all possible (we have limited indoor space if not). Kids are welcome!

For directions and questions call 413-238-4240 or email openhouse@earthspirit.com. For questions read info below carefully, see the EarthSpirit Community’s FB page (for last minute details especially), or call the EarthSpirit office: 413-238-4240. Please note that we will try to check messages on the day of the Sacred Land event, but it may be a little erratic, as we will be mostly outdoors! Sturdy shoes are very, very important, especially for kids! We walk through beautiful woods, creek edges and rough fields.

EarthSpirit Sacred Land Guidelines for Visitors:

Please notice the private homes in the middle of the land, and respect the privacy of residents.
There are portable facilities available for visitors.
Do not bring any alcohol or drugs, and leave pets, including dogs, at home.
Dress for being outdoors, including good shoes/boots for walking in the woods.
We prefer to maintain a cigarette smoke-free environment, but if you need to smoke, please do so outdoors away from the buildings and field-strip your butts.
Please use no candles or incense, because of risk of fire.
Please angle park on the right as you drive in.
