Temple service days are days of celebration, work, prayer, food, and fellowship.
We usually work on projects such as decorating the temple, labyrinth repair, or herb planting.
Reflections students and alumni, OEM initiates, Connect DC regulars and the general public are encouraged to join in with the fun.

In this course, we will dip into the common, underlying language of the "n-fold" mysteries -- mysteries of unity, duality, threefold and fourfold paths, as well as the power behind fives, sevens, and tens. In many Wiccan and Pagan traditions, these numbers are important foundations to the work we do and the magick we create.
Each mystery will be explored via several systems (such as the sevens in chakras, the elder planets, and alchemy) if possible to illustrate the way the core mystery expresses itself in multiple ways.
In this course, we will delve in to the core mysteries of the elements within the wheel of eternity and how they relate to the elements within the realm of time. We will explore the dynamic polarities of time and eternity, force and form, the ethereal and the manifest, among others.
This course assumes a working knowledge of the elements of air, earth, fire, and water.
Reflections meets eight times a year corresponding to the closest Saturday to the Sabbath. During the class portion of the session, we discuss topics in line with our mission. We also use this time to share food, the progress of our individual journeys and handle administrative items.
We then hold ritual; a place and time for integration, celebration and transformation. Afterwards we clean up, care for each other, and then say our goodbyes till next time.
