2013 Rituasl & Workshops
Workshop & Ritual: Rediscovering Ancestral Plant Wisdom
When: Wednesday, May 8, 2013 (9:30am-12:30pm)
Where: BC Shamanic Conference, Squamish, B.C.
An overview of the history, mythology, and traditional ritual uses of European entheogens followed by a more practical discussion on their application as incense, smoking blends, teas, ointments, tinctures as well as herbal beers and wines to be used in our modern rites. The emphasis will be on legal and unregulated visionary herbs with a long history of ritual use. The discussion will be followed by a tea or pipe ceremony and a journey session for the participants to apply and experience the knowledge learned. In this journey they will be asked to commune with the plant ingested and share their experiences afterward.
Women’s Mystery Ritual: Queen of the Earth
When: Saturday, May 18, 2013 (7pm-9pm)
Where: Gathering for Life on Earth Festival, Belcarra, B.C.
Joining forces with the priestesses of the Coru Cathubodua we will all aid our community’s women in aligning themselves with the great Queens of myth and the Goddess as her primal, powerful, devouring, and wild ancient image. We will journey back through the river of blood to speak to our distaff ancestors and discover how they found the power within themselves to live their great lives.
