Portland Metro and Vancouver Area Eclectic Pagan Teaching & Fellowship Group
Lyceum is an eclectic group of solitary pagans and witches who come together to teach, learn, serve and share. We have been incorporated under Oregon law as “Lyceum of Trees, Inc” since 2009, as a religious 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” class, a 13 month long course for anyone interested in an overview of contemporary pagan practices. Read more of our history…
In addition to our Year and a Day classes, Lyceum also offers graduates of the class the opportunity to participate in a three year-long program of study toward ordination as pagan clergy to groups of four or more interested candidates. There are currently seven clergy ordained by Lyceum of Trees with four more who will complete their studies in the Spring of 2018. Read more about our courses…
We hold rituals and participate in pagan events in the greater Portland Metro area. Check our calendar to find out more about scheduled rituals and other events.
We meet at the Powell’s City of Books coffee shop on the 1st Monday of each month from 7:30pm-8:30pm to answer questions from those curious about us. We will be at the table with the Lyceum of Trees sign and usually a bunch of books are being passed around. Generally we are the loudest table in the room, with lots of laughing, joking and sharing going on. We invite you to join us and ask questions about Lyceum, or just observe us at a distance.
January 23, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 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 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.
This is the only eclipse visible from Portcouver in 2018, but it is a remarkable one: this is a Super Moon (the Moon is at its closest to Earth) and it occurs when the Moon is close to the western horizon, which also makes it appear much larger. It is also a Blue Moon, since it is the second Full Moon in the month.
Totality starts at 04:51 and ends at 06:07. Moonset is at 07:37, and sunrise is 5 minutes earlier; but these are by the astronomy definitions. For the viewer and photographer, what is of greater interest is that at 07:35 the Sun will be about halfway above the horizon while the Moon will be about halfway below the horizon ---and still in partial eclipse.
