Enroll in Grove to Deepen Your Practices!
Grove is a community building program through which current Temple members and students collaborate with each other on ritual crafting on certain topics covered in our basics program, Making Magic with the Sacred, our exclusive Membership program, Crossing into the Mysteries, plus our Level One study program, The Deeper Wisdom of the Circle.
During our Outer Grove program, we deepen our relationship to all the “other-than-human” beings in Nature and to in-dwelling divinity. We expand our intellectual needs through recommended reading and book reports. We deepen our relationship to the seasons and create a “found object” altar that expresses that relationship. And so much more!
HOW GROVE WORKS
Each member of the Temple works independently according to the theme of the individual session and, at times, with each other to create ritual. Grove is a reflection of proprietary Ara teachings so each session is a chance to expand experiences and learnings that our programs offer.
Outer Grove also is a great way to start to prepare for the topics and practices we cover in our Level Two program, The Spirituality of Immanent Divinity.
Currently we host a private page on Facebook for Grove which serves as our hub for asking questions and sharing information. We then meet online every 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7-8:30pm ET via our online meetings platform.
Those who are not able to join live are still able to participate in the exercises & experiences and then can share feedback via email or the page on FB.
- Members in good standing who are not enrolled in our initiatory prep program and students who have not fully completed Level 1 are able to participate in Grove yet will not be able to co-create rituals.
- Once you enroll in Grove, you will be given instructions on how to join the private page on Facebook.
- As the Temple expands, we will offer live Grove sessions in each time zone of the U.S. (Pacific, Mountain, Central).
