April Pink Moon Lunar

April 20 at 4:00 pm to 11:30 pm

All are invited to Lunar Gatherings at Oak Spirit Sanctuary. They are family friendly and FREE. Arrive and join in at any point in the schedule and leave whenever you need to. Please sign the attendance book at some point in the evening.

If you are new to OSS, attending a Lunar is great way to “dip your toe” into events at OSS and visit the land.  Please know that the land and retreat center (farm house) are rustic in nature.  Porta-potties are used for restroom facilities.

Lunars are generally scheduled during the waxing moon phase on a Saturday closest to the upcoming full moon during months OSS is not hosting a larger, ticketed weekend event.

Lunars are a one-day event with an afternoon class from the OSS educational series: “A Year and A Day,” for training and information in basic Neo-Pagan topics.

After class, potluck dinner follows, then a short briefing for the upcoming ritual (“ritual conspiracy”), then the ritual itself. Afterwords, merriment and camaraderie around the evening bonfire complete the night’s observances.


4:30–5:30:  Year and A Day class

6:00:  Community Potluck Meal

7:30:  Ritual

Post-ritual:  Community time around the fire

What to Bring to a Lunar

  • A pot-luck dish suitable for about 10 to 12 people with an ingredients list.
  • Drums, acoustic instruments, stories, songs, poems, jokes to share around the fire
  • If you drink alcoholic beverages, bring your own and imbibe responsibly
  • A camping or lawn chair or blanket for seating

If you would like to camp overnight, please visit the Camping Information and Registration page for more information

You may also register and pay for camping the day of the Lunar.  Simply let OSS personnel know and they will help you out! 

Although lunars are free, donations are gratefully accepted a “donation cauldron” is available for free will donations. 

Note: OSS welcomes guest presenters. If you, as an individual or as part of a group, that is interested in presenting a community-oriented ritual at OSS, please contact us at info@oakspiritsanctuary.org

Sometimes, an OSS work day and Lunar Gatherings are held on the same day. Joining in for the work day is welcome but optional. If you work the day, camping is free for the evening.  If you come out only for the Lunar event and camp, please pay the appropriate fees for your camping.
