Beltania is the main annual fundraiser event for Living Earth, a nonprofit church in Denver, Colorado. Living Earth offers a public, nonprofit community center for all to use since 2012.
Living Earth’s executive director is Rev. Joy Burton, who handles the overall direction and organizing of Beltania. Beltania is just one of many of Living Earth activities, as we hold regular religious services and offer many different events, activities, and resources throughout the year, which are found on our Meetup Calendar. Beltania is Living Earth’s largest event and is our main annual fundraiser. We offer ongoing open ceremonies for all solstices, equinoxes, cross quarter days, and the full and new moons as well. There are many open drumming circles, chant circles, fellowship events, classes, and more. You are welcome to come, as you are! Most importantly, we hope to create community, celebration, and deep spiritual connection with each other, with the Earth, and with the Divine.

Northern Colorado Covenant of the River
A partnering organization that has been invaluable to the growth and success of Beltania is Northern Colorado Covenant of the River. NCCR, based in Fort Collins, participates as key staff and contributors to Pagan Pride, Orpheus Pagan Chamber Choir events, and many other large Pagan community happenings around Colorado. They began as volunteers but are now so much more.
Northern Colorado Covenant of the River (NCCR) is organized by Jean Loomis and Jordan Beard.
Jean has moved from Gate Coordinator to Facilities Director and she is now the Festival Director, taking on the main work of logistics, facilities, staffing, and overall event coordination, freeing up Living Earth clergy and directors to be in the role of priestessing, financial management, and overall event direction. Jordan Beard not only hosts the Sweatlodge but also the Young Men’s Rite and this year has taken on marketing as our Community Coordinator. He does too many other tasks during the event to even come up with a name! Ben Trammell is second in command to Jean, as our Facilities Coordinator and Security and wearing many other hats. Without these three, and many other volunteers from NCCR, Beltania would not thrive as it does. We have evolved into partners in decision making, and in giving our efforts and energies harmoniously in service to the larger community.
Staff and Volunteers
A special group of volunteers comprises the Beltania Staff. The Beltania Staff includes not only Living Earth members and NCCR, but also several other churches, groups, and individuals who want to find a way to make a difference through community service. Jean adheres to highest standards in customer service and staff expectations while creating a caring and tightly knit staff community.
