Rituals Attended

At CedarLight Grove, we commemorate ritual attendance with a bead, which we wear on a pair of leather thongs attached to a button with our Grove sigil on it. I’ve kept track of my rituals fairly good in my journal on tawodi.org, and in the last 4 years we’ve implemented a guestbook to be signed during ritual to help members (and the membership coordinator) keep track of ritual attendance as well.

Someone once mentioned “Why keep track of the rituals you attend? It’s not like it’s a race.” Well no, and that’s entirely missing the point. I keep track of them here because otherwise I’d have no way of knowing. I can’t remember all these rituals, and what happens if I lose my Grove pin?

You can also view the Rituals I wrote up for the Dedicant’s Program.
