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 10 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.

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.”

As always, we will be child-friendly and holding a potluck, so please bring a dish to share with the group. Hope to see you then!

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.

Full Moon Guided Meditation

10/26/2007 6:30 pm

Greetings All!! I am in the habit of honoring the Goddess when her most recognizable symbol grows full in the sky and would like to extend an invitation to all to come walk thru the park and join me in a guided meditation under Her wondrous light.

This will be a slight walk, and a mostly guided (by me) meditation as the moon rises. As such I would ask that you wear warm clothing that you can get dirty, comfortable shoes and if you like (or need) a lantern/flashlight/torch of some sort.

Full Moon


The Hunter in us all can use the energy of the Blood Moon to seek out new quests on our paths- use the coming winter to gather new skills and knowledge-

Park Clean-up

10/21/2007 3:00 pm

We’re still doing the park clean-up today @ 3. Since the Tea House visit was canceled due to lack of interest, there will be no costume exchange today. Wear warm clothes; with wind chill it feels like it’s in the mid-20’s.


Because nobody really wants to be there at 11:30 in the morning on a Sunday, we’ve moved the meeting time to 3:00 in the afternoon. Potluck, etc… will follow.

Healing Ritual & Discussion

10/14/2007 5:30 pm

Join us for a round table discussion on where and when to do Spiritual healings- maybe you feel like it is your job to do healings for any and all- perhaps you believe that a person must ask for help in their healing- it may be that we, as a group, can do a healing for any given Circle member- or maybe we need their permission- or even better, they must be present to ask for and/or receive a healing- bring a dish to share and an open mind as we discuss this night how to heal those around us, when to ask for help and when to ‘heal’ without being asked- be prepared to join in a group healing rit

Game Night

10/07/2007 5:30 pm

Join the fun and bring your favorite game to share with others. This will be a usual pot luck meal and then afterwards, we can break out the games and enjoy each others company and laughter.

Blessing Bottles

11/25/2007 5:30 pm

Energy raised by a group can be a powerful thing, and it can be stored to use when we are alone or in need. This is the theory behind a Blessing Bottle. I suppose I should call them Blessing Jars, as that is what we will be using but Bottle just sounds better.. don’t you think? Anyway, we will be sharing stories, food and chanting for joy this evening. While the power of the full Moon still lingers, we will gather to craft and empower small jars filled with dirt and trinkets to give as gifts or use for future house cleansings.

Full Moon Readings

11/24/2007 7:00 pm

Greetings All!!

The full Moon in November may be chilly, it may also be warm enough to walk through the park still- we shall see- this evening will be about letting go of problems that we have not yet solved ourselves-

I would like people to bring a poem or short reading about the Moon that you are comfortable reading and a dish to share- we will be reading our selections, freezing our problems and honoring the Goddess-

Blessed Be Jean

Marcy's first show!

11/18/2007 6:30 pm

**** Paraphrased from Marcy ****
I’m playing my first booked gig EVER on at Hi-Dive in Denver November 18th, which is a Sunday. The address is 7 S. Broadway Denver, Co 80209, the website is….

They give bands a time slot by how many tickets they sell, so I don’t know exactly when I would be playing- the show starts at 6:30 and ends at 11ish. The tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.

I HAVE to sell at least 30 tickets in order to be booked again! I could really use everyone’s support in this endeavor :)
