Celebrating Beltaine May 2022

Updated: Jul 15


Honoring the seasons has been a part of my personal spiritual practices for more than 20 years. Connecting with the nuances of the eight holidays associated with the Celtic Calendar or the Wheel of the Year, has been a way for me to access my spiritual practices, throughout the year, with a specific theme to each event.


Below are some suggestions for celebrating the season of Beltaine which happens on May 1st every year. Enjoy the turn of the wheel of the seasons!
