What is an Esbat: Day for Spiritual Gatherings

Last Updated:


By Morningbird

An esbat is a day for spiritual gatherings of a coven or circling group or observation by a solo practitioner.

Esbats are days specially set aside for spellwork or worship (or both) and may take place on either the full moon or the new moon or both depending on tradition.
