Our old site is archived here for now, while we move content over.
NOTE: there will be no meet-and-greet in Portland on July 4th. Enjoy your holiday!
Lyceum incorporated under Oregon law as “Lyceum of Trees, Inc” in 2005, as a 501(3)c non-profit organization. Four of Lyceum’s Elders studied for, and became ordained as clergy under Oregon law, in 2006. Since 2002, Lyceum has offered a “Year and a Day” 13 month long course for anyone interested in an overview of contemporary pagan practices.
We offer classes in Gresham — a town bordering Portland — and in Salem. We have rituals and participate in pagan events at various locations between Salem and Vancouver.
Lyceum also provides a three year long program of study toward ordination as pagan clergy whenever there are four or more interested candidates.
We meet at the Powell’s City of Books coffee shop on the 1st Monday of each month to answer questions from those curious about us, and to give anyone who comes by an opportunity to look us over. We will be at the table with the Lyceum of Trees sign and usually a bunch of crafts books being passed around. Feel free to join us and ask questions about Lyceum, or just observe us at a distance.

September 27, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Eastrose Fellowship Annex, 1133 Northeast 181st Avenue, Portland, OR 97230, United States
Oregon Power and Light meets the fourth Tuesday of each month. Our next meeting is September 27th. This is our first meeting after the Summer recess.
We are going to begin studying and practicing ritual as part of our continuing explorations. The emphasis is on developing effective ritual: that which brings participants deep into a sacred experience. This will involve more practical work on stagecraft and delivery than on any particular theory of neopaganism, although we will be working more or less within the theoretical framework developed by Victor Anderson and Feri practitioners.
Our primary goals remain mutual support and continuing education focused on neopagan and other earth- centered spiritual traditions. We are sponsored by Eastrose Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and Lyceum of Trees.
Our group serves people who have studied neopagan traditions in course work or independent study and would like something more, and we especially invite those in solitary spiritual practice who yearn for some structured interaction with other pagans.
We Meet at the Warren James House, owned by, and adjacent to, Eastrose Fellowship.
6:00 pm: doors open, bring your own supper (kitchen available) and socializing
6:30 pm: program starts.
8:30 pm: wrap up.
There is a suggested donation of $1 per person per meeting which goes to Eastrose Fellowship to help with maintenance costs of the house.
