Upcoming Events

March 14th, 2020

There’s a lot of concern right now regarding COVID-19, and we’re being advised to physically isolate. Physical isolation doesn’t have to mean social isolation, though. While we will not be meeting in person for the next little while, we will still be meeting together online.

All of our scheduled events, including coffee cauldrons, will be moving to Microsoft Teams. We will be updating the website and Facebook events to include the meeting links. Even if you don’t have an Office 365 account, you will be able to join as a guest.

We are here to support you spiritually throughout whatever challenges you may be facing. Please reach out to us through Facebook messenger – either personally or through our page, or by email (mary at circle of the sacred muse dot org).

With lots of love and blessings,
Lady Mary Malinski, HPS

The Circle of the Sacred Muse is an open Wiccan community serving Courtenay, Comox, Campbell River and the surrounding communities on Northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia. We celebrate the Sabbats and Full Moons – our rituals are open to the public to attend. We also have informal “coffee cauldrons,” where we can meet, share experiences, and have fun.

Our circle is accepting of all, regardless of race, gender or orientation. Whether you are an experienced covener, new to the craft or just curious, you are welcome here. As we are told in the Charge of the Goddess, we bring “mirth and reverence” to our rituals.

We ask that you RSVP for rituals so we can make sure we have enough supplies for everyone. Dates may be subject to change. Feel free to contact us for more information.

Spring Mysteries Festival @ Fort Flagler
Apr 9 – Apr 12 all-day
Spring Mysteries Festival @ Fort Flagler

The Spring Mysteries Festival is a recreation of the Eleusinian Mysteries, the ancient initiatory rites of classical Greek Paganism which were conducted in secrecy for over two thousand years before the common era. The ATC brings you this continuing initiatory cycle, now in its 35th year of continuous presentation, including the Rites of Passage for youngsters coming into their adulthood in our community; and the Adult Affirmation of Path, for those new to the path.

This year is extra special for us as The Aquarian Tabernacle Church of Canada will be installing a new Archpriestess, our very own Mary Malinski!

For newcomers: Welcome! You will be Mystai (the Greeks’ name for participants), and will undergo the Lesser Mysteries.

For those returning (who have gone through the Lesser Mysteries in a prior year) Welcome back! You will undergo the Greater Mysteries, or Epoptaic Initiation. The Greater Mysteries are for adults 18 and older who have attended the Lesser Mysteries in a previous year, and for children who are between 13 and 17 years old who have also attended the Lesser Mysteries in a prior year, and have gone through the Youth Rites of Passage.

This festival is packed full of various workshops, classes, and lectures about all aspects of Wicca, Paganism, and the ATC Tradition. They are often hosted by well-known elders and members of the regional and national community. “Friday Night at the Apollo Theater” is always a lot of fun with a Talent Show and Auction. There are also amazing Shrines to many of the Greek Gods, as well as celebrations, bardic circles, music, drumming, and magic running throughout the entire weekend.

Merchants from across the land come to offer their special wares for sale in the Snack Kitchen area, the source of between-meals snacks, sweet delights, and ESPRESSO to jump-start your mornings and prolong your nights! Indoor bunking is in heated dorms where lots of hot water showers are available. Standard meal service is mainstream (unless otherwise indicated on your registration form) to suit every taste, with big servings of wholesome, tasty food prepared by our staff of professional cooks and many volunteers. No one ever goes away from our kitchen hungry!

Courtenay Coffee Cauldron @ Games and Grounds
Apr 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our monthly Coffee Cauldron is a place where we get together in a casual atmosphere over food and drink. Stories and experiences are shared, new and old friends reconnect and community is built.

We will be going through the ATC Threads of Wisdom cards – each coffee night there will be one or two topics about Wicca to explore. You will receive a card at the end of the night for each topic.

Newcomers are most welcome! This is the perfect place to sit down over a cup of tea or coffee to get a feel for the group and ask questions. Whether you are interested in exploring a new path, new to town and looking for community or just want to drop in and say hi, you are welcome to join us.

Coffee Cauldron is also a great time for show and tell! Please feel free to bring your witchy items along to share with the group. (Tarot cards, stones, crystals, etc).
