Our Circles and Ceremonies

We hold ceremonial gatherings where members rotate as space holders so that all have the opportunity to participate and learn from each other’s practices. This is the site for the most recent event. The AEP women’s circle began meeting online in January 2022.


We believe that clear agreements are the foundation of strong practitioner-participant relationships. All attendees complete our Participation Agreement and Health Self-Assessment, including event organizers. We also begin ceremonies with additional spoken agreements about issues like touch, privacy, maintaining the ceremonial container, consumption of sacraments, and responsibility for emergencies.

The Association has hosted quarterly ceremonial gatherings in North Carolina since June, 2021, developing a stable practice circle of 10-15 regular attendees.
