Earth Centered Spirituality Circle (ECSC)

2018 Yule Ritual

Saturday, December 15th, 2018
First UU Church of San Diego, Hillcrest Campus
Meeting House
Magick begins on the patio at 5:30pm.
Ritual begins at 6:30 pm.

The Earth Centered Spirituality Circle is happy to present this year’s Yule Ritual, a celebration of winter solstice. Yule is a magickal time of year when we come together to honor the dark half of the year and to celebrate the promise of light. Using song, dance, firelight, drumming, spoken word, and community ritual, our church community will honor this ancient pagan holiday and carry on a long-standing tradition at First UU. This is a celebration for all ages, and festive ritual garb is welcomed!

All in attendance must have a ticket, as we often reach capacity for this event. This multi-generational event will be held in the Meeting House at First Church. It is wheelchair accessible and ASL will be provided. For additional questions email sdpagansuu@gmail.com

Tickets are $10.00 and can be purchased at the ECSC patio table at First UU Church of San Diego, Hillcrest campus every Sunday between services or you can buy them now online.

Our Mission

The mission of the Earth Centered Spirituality Circle is in direct alignment with First Unitarian Universalist Church's goals of "Creating community, nurturing spiritual growth, and acting on our values to help heal the world." The ECSC provides a safe place for individuals and families of all structures to explore Pagan and Earth-Centered spiritual paths. We honor in ritual the Eight Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year, lead periodic Religious Education Classes, and participate in outreach to the wider community to those seeking a spiritual home in which their beliefs are honored and affirmed.
