Pagans in the Park – Ostara

March 24th: Pagans in the Park – Ostara

This gathering will be a short Ostara ritual to celebrate the Spring Equinox.

The ritual will begin at 5pm at the quarry and last about 20 minutes.

The ritual is also scripted, so anyone, regardless of experience, can participate (call quarters, deity, cakes and ale, etc.). Afterwards, there will be time for picnicking and socializing.

***Ritual garb and tools are welcome, but please leave your athame at home as this is a public park and blades are prohibited***

The ritual will be held at Meade’s Quarry (part of Ijams Nature Center) near the overlook for the lake. To get to the area, follow the train tracks from the parking lot (with the lake on your right). You will see a clear path to the right of the tracks as you leave the parking area, that leads to the overlook and a raised flat area. We will be holding ritual there.

PPET’s Pagans in the Park gatherings are open, public, gatherings hosted by Pagan Pride of Easth TN. These rituals are designed for solitary practitioners who wish to connect with others, individuals not associated with any specific group/path, or for those who are just curious or new to Paganism. The hope is to bring more visibility and understanding to the Pagan Community in general, while also allowing individuals to connect with one another spiritually.

Anyone who is respectful is welcome to attend, participate, or just watch.

Julia Stearns-Smith: The Starry Crown: The Starry Crown, which is a tool in personal sovereignty work. Personal sovereignty is essential in everything from witchcraft to running a Fortune 500 company. This tool can be used to harness personal power and develop ones purpose in this life.

Johanna: Casting Powders: Using powders in magic

Wynne Thomas Carluk: Four Functions of Tarot: Of the four functions of the Sacred Tarot, only two of them are Divinatory and the other two are Sciences as credible and valid as Algebra, and when those other two functions of the tarot are realized and understood, the accuracy of the Divinatory function of Tarot becomes 100% one hundred percent of the time.

Event Policies

Attention participants of PPET events

It is the policy of Westside Unitarian that no weapons are allowed on the property. This includes blades, swords, etc.  Alcohol is only permitted with special permission, which PPET has not obtained (and cannot obtain due to Pagan Pride International requirements). Westside also has clear rules about children being monitored by their parents at all times.

As such, all events hosted by Pagan Pride of East Tennessee must be alcohol-free and no weapons may be carried or vended at the location.

Parents are expected to supervise their children at all times. 

The same policies are also in effect for the Sevierville Civic Center where Pagan Pride Day will be held again this year on September 13th.

PPET asks that you please do no carry these prohibited items on your person or bring them in to any of our sponsored events. Doing so will require us to ask you to take the item back to your vehicle.

Parents – do not  leave your children unattended / unsupervised. Supervision does not include leaving younger children in the care of underage teenagers / siblings.

Those who choose not to respect these requests will be asked to leave.

These policies are not only to comply with the requirements of the venues at which we hold events, but also for the safety of everyone attending and working at these events.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

– Pagan Pride of East Tennessee Board
