Shining Lakes Grove Ritual Outline

Since others have been sharing their ritual outlines, here's ours in Shining Lakes Grove. We have made one glaring addition, the "Allies," who are the spirits of the people and their gods who once lived on this land. We did this because we felt it was needed (we got lots of indications that led us to this conclusion, including several High Day divinations), and because it is an IE way of dealing with one's defeated rivals.

We also have "Ana honoring" in the place of the Earth Mother. Ana is the goddess of the Huron River, who is the goddess of our land (the Huron watershed, where our grove is located), so she is our Earth Mother goddess. That said, here 'tis:
