September Service for the Spirits of the Ocean: We have 2 services today. One on Zoom and one at Assateague Island Sat Sept 19th, 1 PM set up Assateague Island National Seashore (U.S. National Park Service)
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information regarding the beach service.
Contact email@example.com for the Zoom service.
(For Assateague) Please RSVP. Carpooling is encouraged. We want to start the ritual early because it starts getting colder at night. And it is dark on that beach too.Assateague Island National Seashore. (This is very important. Do not go to the state park and expect to find us.) This ritual calls for more planning before the day. We've had only sketchy cell reception out there as well, so please don't try to get a hold of us to coordinate that day for directions, etc. Know where you are going. RSVP via email or FB if you run into trouble that day, but try not to do so in the 1st place.Set up is at 1. It takes a long time to set up, as we must carry everything down the boardwalk. Please be there at 1 to help. Ritual at 2. We must be out of there completely by 1 AM on the 10th. If we wait that long for clean up, we will be cold. So we're not aiming for an evening ritual.
Tell the gate guard you are with the Universal Temple of Spirits and there is no charge for coming in on the 19th, as this is 1st amendment right use. We should be on the permit list.I expect we will be in the same location as last time. I'll give more details when they send the permit back and give us the location on the beach. I expect we will park at the parking lot at the North Ocean Beach and take the farthest left boardwalk, across from the toilets, when you are facing the ocean. At the other side of the parking lot is the National Seashore Campground Office https://www.nps.gov/asis/planyourvisit/maps.htm'''
Please Bring:-Your Spirit of the Ocean (give this to me ahead of time) -a design for them (veves in the sand!) -a song for them (It's all live singing. We've got no beach electronics.)-Drums -beach towels -Sunscreen -Bug repellent (The beach is ok. Area around parking lot not so much.) -beach blanket/chair...-bathing suit -flashlight, lantern...Once it gets dark it is DARK out there.-Water -Food (easy to eat with fingers the better). -Warm Clothing if we are still out there when it is dark. -Wood. We need to pick up wood on site if we want a fire.
This is a pack in, pack out. No offerings, even biodegradable ones put in the ocean, are allowed to stay at the National Seashore.
October Service for the Spirits of Autumn: Probably Oct 3rd. At this rate, probably on Zoom!
November Service for the Ancestors and Spirits of the Dead: Saturday Nov 7th at 3 PM, at Where the Sidewalk Ends, near Gettysburg, PA. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information. Wear your mask and drop the covid numbers, so maybe we can meet in person this time!
December Service for the Spirits of Prosperity: Sun. Dec 5th 2 PM If we can meet in person, we will do a holiday gift exchange of presents, picked randomly. Please bring a wrapped gift of value $20 or under. Handmade or regifts ok.
