    I know, old thread. But it is a good one. I have one of those zipper pencil pouches with very small altar items inside for traveling or outdoor pagan adventures.
    - Battery operated tea light that flickers
    - Mini Mister filled with blessed lunar or rainwater
    - Tiny Ziploc with an aromatic herb or flower such as lavender or cloves
    - A crystal or other grounding stone (about the size of a quarter)
    - Coaster sized doily for an altar cloth
    - Keychain style prayer beads to represent the four quarters
    - Something to represent that holy day or season such as a little fake holly leaf or metal charm
    - Tiny crystal or tiny Ziploc of bird seed to leave as an offering

    Actually, you don't need anything but imagination to form magical intent, but I am often stressed when I travel so it's nice to have token items. I'm fine using a finger or pencil for a wand, but you might want to consecrate a sturdy stick or dowel to add.

    I will have to take pictures, but mine is one of those roll up toiletry kits. I can fit everything in it then roll it up and it fits in my carry on.

    I absolutely do.
    I have a shrine in my kitchen, and when I go away, there's a little hinged box that comes with me.

    at Lushfest
    which was it's first trip out


    and on a recent business trip (where my little shrine was competing for space with my absolute DARLING favourite colleague had all his make up. oh I love him, he's like a sort of gay son or younger brother to me. he's adorable.
    but anyway, the shrine



    it all folds away into the box, and then I wrap the box in the cloth. all in all it takes up less room than my toiletries, and takes a selection of things from my shrine comfortably away with me. complete with battery powered tealights that are suitable for hotel rooms and tents alike.

    My altar is in my brain. So, yah, it's small...but it works.

    Funny enough, I stopped using an altar about two years ago ... I just don't feel the need for it anymore I feel more spiritually connected with myself and the act of performing rituals stopped being important. Now I can gain the same satisfaction with a breeze across my cheek and a thanks to the Gods for a beautiful sunny day

    For the most part my mini-altar is outside. But when I used to have to keep a small altar that could be packed away (read hidden) it was a small vial of sea salt, a small vial I'd put water in, and a few sticks of incense wrapped up in a cloth.

    started a topic Do you have a mini altar? A portable altar?

    Do you have a mini altar? A portable altar?

    I know for me it is important to be able to have an altar when I go on vacation or am away on business and especially now that I live with my parents in-law, having a regular altar is impossible so I created a mini altar that I can use when I can steal away some "me" time in a house full of people.

    Share your mini altar kits. What you include and how you made any of the items in it.

    Thanks
