The boys rite of passage, Secret Men's Business, culminated in the two boys painted up with ochre returning to the camp fire at dusk, holding blazing flares on high to light the Beltane fire. The women, girls and younger children dancing around the ring calling them in. Rich with symbolism our rituals express the Beltane energy.
The women held a Menarche ceremony, welcoming a new sister to womanhood. A beautiful sacred circle, all the women dressed in red, lavishing the maiden with wisdom, love and presents.
