Day 1 Apollon’s return festival

This festival has really started out on a high note… and with my daughter taking her turn playing the lyre I can say that is almost literal. Below is what we did for the first day of the ritual

1. set out nine candles on the shrine to represent the nine day festival and the sacred number 9 in general

2. read the orphic hymns appropriate for the ritual

3. general prayer to Apollon

4. personal prayers to Apollon

5. giving offerings to the god (we gave a small stone called liquid light)

6. poems to Apollon Hyperboreas and Apollon in the North

7. we took turns playing the lyre

8. closing prayers
