What if this is my first pagan festival?
~The Gods have smiled on you, my friend...you are in for a scintillating adventure! Beltane is the Spring Feast - it is a fertility festival. It is the time to celebrate not only the season of procreation, when all the world is swept away in delicious twitterpation; but also the fertile mind, the fertile life, and the sticky-sweet juice that runs out of it! Come and revel in the marrow of life! Loose yourself in the heady drunkenness of spiritual ecstasy within the safety of The Inner Temple; where the same beautiful players come together year after year to celebrate the Sabbats, recognizing one another as clan and kin and joining together once and again in the Dance of Olde...and always, we are gathering our tribe to us! Welcome to the Inner Temple!
Come with us Into the Green and Revel in the Rites of Spring ~

Will there be nudity?
