Geelong Pagan community events
Pagans for Lunch
You're invited to join us and our special guest speakers for lively conversation and great food. Pagans for Lunch is a monthly informal lunchtime get together for local Pagans at a Geelong cafe. In 2018-19 lunches are held on the Monday before the Full moon at The Sprout About, 1 Martin St, Thompson. (The Sprout About caters to a wide range of dietry requirements.) We often used these lunches to plan our lunar and solar gatherings, come and get involved. Also check the Geelong Pagans facebook group for details.
Full Moon / New Moon Gatherings
Come to Pagans for Lunch to find out about and help plan Full Moon Gatherings. Meet other participants in an informal, friendly setting and introduce yourself.
Public gatherings to celebrate major seasonal celebrations are planned for 2019. Each event will be preceded by a planning workshop focusing on history, traditions and crafts linked to the seasons. Please check back again for more details.
Winter Solstice Lantern Parade
Run by the Geelong West Neighborhood House. Traditionally, the Winter Solstice is an acknowledgement of the day of shortest daylight. Walking with our candle-lit lanterns along Pakington Street honours this tradition of rising from our dormant Winter. This is an amazing and memorable occasion of colour and light. Location: West Park, corner Autumn and Pakington Streets, Geelong West. www.gwnh.org.au
Sun Return Gathering
Join a small group of hardy folk at a public gathering to celebrate the sun return before dawn after the winter solstice. Participants will gather at Eastern Observatory, Corio Bay foreshore, Geelong to share a hot breakfast and watch the sun rise on the new solar year. Held annually at sunrise after the winter solstice.
