Finally we found a group of 5 and stayed in their vicinity, attuning. We also visited the big-bellied Oak (some of us managed to get `inside’ it and toasted glasses of Champagne (Thanks Jinji!). Much mulled Wine, Mulled Cider, Coffe etc later, we walked to a special Oak and did our Yule ritual, of bringing light forth from darkness!
Previous Quarterly Special: Windsor Hern Ritual. Saturday 9th April’11.
Way back in April 2005, Hern’s Tribe undertook to do annual Hern-rituals in Windsor great park, for the well-being of the land!. Little did we know, that due to the Pope dying and change of plans, Prince Charles will move his wedding (to Camilla) onto the same day that we had planned. Well, hey did their events, and so did we- on the same day (not that many people knew about ours!) We repeated that the following year, and fell into a gap. 2 years ago, HT people went to Windsor again for some `Male mysteries’ workings. And now, in April, we’re going back to Windsor, on the anniversary of our first Windsor-Hern ritual, to keep a promise to Hern. Stangely, we had planned this as way back as autumn in 2010, and a bit later, Prince William announced his wedding to Kate, to take place in April’11. Question we ask is- do you still need proof that Hern’s Tribe is onto a powerful magical stream connecting old Windsor-Hern myths and the Sovereignty of this land?
