Happy May Day! How will you celebrate?

May 1, 2010

In addition to today’s Lettre Sauvage’s May Day Open Studios in Santa Paula from 6-10pm (and deadline for their poetry contest!), there’s a number of Beltaine celebrations going on Saturday May 1, both public and private.

PUBLIC DAYTIME, OJAI:

The email invitation from Frugal Goddess Adrienne reads, “The Maypole is the very heart of this holy day.  A symbolic merger of soft feminine ribbons playfully winding around an erect & receptive phallus.” A tree has been prepped and ready for ritual at noon with a  phallic procession.

“The Goddesses will open & prepare the earth by digging a hole,” according to the email. “Continuing with the Maypole ribbon tying ceremony…Once the Maypole penetrates the heartbeat of the earth- the Goddess dancing will begin!”
LOCATION_ Morgan’s Magic Meadow (& wild life preserve)
DIRECTIONS_(from 101) – 33 east (towards Ojai). Lt Baldwin (150 towards Santa Barbara). Pass the Lake Casitas entrance on left side …. the next right turn available is YOUR TURN. (this road is half paved & half dirt). Go through the cattle gates – stay on the road until you see the Magic Meadow!
BRING: cotton ribbon or all natural ribbons,  picnic/pot luck to share, blanket/chairs, drums and any other musical instruments (Shiva’s play for us!), dress comfortably (temps in 80s), bug spray (it’s a magical meadow with all living creatures!),  hiking boots ( many trails and rocks to climb!), towel (swimming pond!) The more goddesses – the better!

Then hie thee to Bell Arts Factory where in the Vita Arts Center you will find faeries in their native habitat and more at a closing reception from 6-8pm for Borbala Arvai’s magical exhibit of faeries.
