Covenant of the River

The Northern Colorado Covenant of the River, of Fort Collins, CO, has been an active part of the greater Pagan community for over 9 years. We are a family friendly, eclectic group who gathers to explore, exchange knowledge, learn about and further understand our own Spiritual Paths, while finding acceptance within the comfort of an open circle atmosphere. The Northern Colorado Covenant of the River is a place where all with an open heart and mind are welcome. Come out and meet local Pagans, Asatru, Buddhists, Druids, Wiccans, Witches and other practitioners on a Pagan Path. Our activities and topics vary from week to week to support our diversity and also to celebrate the Wheel of the Year. Join us to share ideas and lore, make friends, craft tools and other items, write and perform ritual, participate in lively discussions and to explore the rich and varied practices of the Pagan traditions. This website is a living work of love and will be updated as often as possible, so please check in often to see what we have planned.

Park Clean-up & Discussion on Tools

07/15/2007 5:30 pm

Come join us in cleaning up our community park, a vital part of giving back and helping the Earth.

We will also be having a discussion on ritual tools- why we use them, when we use them, and how we use them. Because we all come from different paths, and because we’re all very individual, everything we do is different, and the tools we use are therefore different. Come share your knowledge with us, and learn from those who have different knowledge!

We also request that you bring a dish or dessert for the potluck meal we will share.

Independence Day Celebration

07/01/2007 5:30 pm

When we, as pagans, talk about the history of our paths, the conversation quickly turns to Europe. But what of our history here on American soil? From the American Indians and their worship of the Great Spirit to the American Governmant allowing the Pentacle on a solider’s grave, American Paganism has a great history. We have marched for our rights, fought schools for inclusion and petioned the military for religous leave. Lewis and Clark participated in American Indian rituals in order to gain approval from the natives. The Salem Witch Trials marred the history of America.

Park clean-up and craft

08/12/2007 5:30 pm

Many traditions send prayers to the Great Spirit in a great many ways. This day we will be sending ours through a park clean-up and in the construction of Prayer Sticks. All materials will be provided (minus the prayer, of course). Our participation in the care-taking of a green space is a group prayer for society at large to recognize their involvement in the Earth, and we as a group take it upon ourselves to care where others may not. The Prayer Sticks are borne of an Native American tradition of handing worries over to the Great Spirit.

Lughnasadh Ritual

08/05/2007 3:00 pm

According to Irish mythology, the god Lugh set down this festival to honor his foster mother, Tailtiu, who cleared the land of Ireland so it could be planted and died from the task. It was celebrated by huge fairs that would last for weeks in the larger towns of Ireland where people would gather to sell their wares, party, and make legal arrangements. Agriculturally, it was the beginning of the first harvest and people would go out to pick wildberries.

Join us as we celebrate our own version of this festival! We’ll have feasting, a druid-style ritual, and an all-around good time.

Songspells and Poetry

09/16/2007 5:30 pm

Many ancient societies believed that poets held special magic and power over all other people, including their kings and rulers. What a poet had to say about a person would be remembered forever, ensuring their reputation.

Music, song, and poetry hold no less impact over us today. Join us as we explore some of the ways music is involved in our daily life, magical life, and spiritual life, followed by a small songspell done “Laura-style.”

Samhain Ritual

10/31/2007 5:30 pm

Samhain is a time of endings and beginnings. Take some time in the days before Samhain to quietly reflect on your past year. Consider the passings and arrivals, lessons learned and opportunities lost through in-action or incorrect action. Evaluate these thoughts and decide which aspects of your life you wish to do a way with, to have those thoughts and circumstances end. Write these on a card. Then think about the year to come. Think about what you want to and what you can create from a blank slate; projects to begin, loved ones to forgive, good habits to start, old habits to end.
