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.

Ostara Ritual

03/22/2008 1:00 pm

Greetings All!! Join Cherie and the Covenant in ushering in Spring this Saturday afternoon.

The spring equinox is a time of balance, of fertility, and of change. We will be saying goodbye to winter and hello to spring. We will also release what binds us and plant new dreams. This ritual will have meditations and an activity of planting seeds.
This ritual is loosely based on an Ancient Ukrainian rite.

Time: Ritual starts at 1:00 pm sharp.

Full Moon Fire

03/21/2008 7:00 pm

Short notice, I know, but Chris wants to break in the new fire pit.

We will gather tonight to honor the Full Moon with laughter and friendship. No real Ritual is planned but impromptu Spiritual moments are always a possibility.

Please bring some wood to burn and a beverage if you would like. We will NOT be having a potluck, but if you have a burning desire to bring some munchies please feel free. Appropriate clothing is recommended, as it is still brisk at night.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact any of the organizers.

Blessed Be Jean

Drugs & Alcohol from a Pagan Perspective

03/16/2008 5:30 pm

*** I do not have children, and therefore have a hard time making this decision but I ( along with others hopefully) will be honest tonight about my experiences and opinions on this subject so I would encourage parents to think about that before they bring their children. I am not sure I can ban them from a discussion, but I must caution all parents that tonight’s discussion will raise question in the mind, and you (not I) have to be prepared to answer them.***

Tuatha Show in Denver

03/14/2008 8:00 pm

Numerology Lecture

03/09/2008 5:30 pm

Join us this evening for a Lecture on Numerology. Of course, there will be discussion but for the most part I will be presenting a history of, the current uses of and cultural differences in Numerology.

Numerology is any of many systems, traditions or beliefs in a mystical or esoteric relationship between numbers and physical objects or living things.

Please bring a dish to share, and an open mind. Beverages are avilable upstairs from the Alley Cat. As usual children are welcome and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of the organizers.

Trees, Water & People (TWP) has been proud to host the great annual Riverboat the Rockies party and fund raiser since 2000, always with the help of wonderful volunteers! This year, we are thrilled to announce that the Riverboat is charting a new course. Renew the Rockies â?? The Magic of Clean Energy will transport guests to an enchanted world of magicians and more!

Wood Gathering

03/08/2008 1:00 pm

Greetings All!!

To the best of our abilities and in keeping with environmental friendliness, we will be gathering wood today for the Beltane fire. The bundle is traditionally gathered during the spring pruning and left to dry until Beltane. The bundle consists of three sticks from each of nine sacred trees. I expect that we will really be gathering twigs but a tree hunt will be fun. We have a map of City Park with all of its trees listed and from there we might head out into the world to find what we need.

Ritual Tool Cleansing

03/02/2008 5:30 pm

Cleansing your tools, (in what ever format at whatever time) can be a powerful way of letting go, and moving forward. It can also be a way of releasing the energies built up over time back into the Universe. Join us this evening for a group cleansing as we look forward to the Spring and all her blessings.

This event will be group written and performed. Even if you didn’t get to come to the writing on Thursday, we encourage you to come be a part of the Ritual.

Witches' Balls Craft

04/27/2008 5:30 pm

I heard about this craft from a group of friends, and altered it a little bit. We’ll be taking basic Christmas ornaments (silver or clear balls) and painting them!

This craft was originally a mundane craft, but I’ve decided that we might as well make this something purposeful, so these balls will be blessing balls (or whatever purpose you give it).

I’ll be providing acrylic paints and a number of symbols that you can use, or you can go completely wild and make the ball whatever you want!

Park Cleanup & Full Moon

04/20/2008 5:30 pm

Greetings All!!
We will be gathering at the Landings Park this Sunday for our monthly clean-up. Please bring gloves and wear appropriate clothing/sunscreen/hat etc. Adopting this park was our first venture into community involvement and I hope to keep it as long as we can.

The weather will be warmer and the day longer so we will be sharing our meal at the park. There is enough picnic tables, and a great playground for the kids when they get bored with the grown-up talk. Please bring a dish to share.

Who’s for Spring Cleaning??

Here it is.. the Loveland Waterway clean-up information. I have just copied the email I received through our participation last year. I need to know how many people we will be bringing (of course that number is always subject to change), before I contact the organizers of this fine opportunity. So please, check your calendars, and let me know ASAP. Hopefully, we will have the great weather we did last year and then can have lunch afterwards.

See you all soon!!

I Ching

04/13/2008 5:30 pm

The I Ching is an ancient form of divination, handed down from the Chinese. I’m going to be giving a presentation on the (very) basic history, uses, and methods for using the I Ching. Traditionally, the I Ching is done using yarrow sticks; however, the method I know uses coins, and that’s the easier way.

Statues Ritual

04/06/2008 5:30 pm

I don’t know if you’re like me- I have a statue fetish, in the way that I absolutely love collecting statues and placing them around my house. It occurred to me one night as I was getting ready for bed that my statues all seemed to have distinct personalities and things that they provided me.

Tonight, I’m going to be talking a little bit about this idea, from the Hindus to gargoyles, and leading a ritual to welcome a spirit into any of your statues and/or fetishes that you’d like.
