None can stand against You!

All will fall before You!

Battle Champion, Guardian,

Mighty Cú Chulainn, accept our offering!

Warrior offers ale to Cú Chulainn, pouring it on the ground by the Hero’s tree.

People: Mighty Cú Chulainn, accept our offering!

Presiding Druid:

Children of the Earth!  Please follow me into the Sacred Precinct.

People process to the circle with Presiding Druid leading, then Warrior follows behind the folks. Sanctifier and Sacrificer are at the end with smudge and bowl of water.

PROCESSION

Presiding Druid leads people to the circle, singing:

We approach the Sacred Grove

With hearts and minds and flesh and bone.

Join us now in ways of old;

We have come home.

(Repeat until Procession is ended)

People find their places in the Circle. Presiding Druid stands to the left of the altar. Seer stands near the well. Warrior stands near the fire. Sanctifier and Sacrificer are the last to enter.

Santifier and Sacrificer circle the Henge deosil, censing and aspersing the space and People, as they chant:

By the might of the water, and the light of the fire, this grove is made whole and holy.

After completely going around the circle, they move to their places, Sacrificer to the east of the altar, and Sanctifier to the east of Sacrificer.

WELCOME

Presiding Druid rings the bell 3 X 3, and says:

Nature Spirits! Ancestors! Shining Ones! Welcome! We shall meet here at the Sacred Center when we open the gates to the Otherworlds.

THE EARTH MOTHER

Presiding Druid: Earth Mother!  Bearer of all life!  We show you honor!

People kiss their hand and touch the ground.
