Parenting While Pagan
 Attend Link

Parenting While Pagan

A facilitated discussion about raising children in Pagan traditions. In this workshop, the facilitators will share their own experiences and introduce topics for discussion. Some likely topics will include how to resolve the tension between children's exposure to and desire to participate in dominant religious activities (i.e., Christmas and Easter), how to "reclaim" traditional Pagan practices from how they have been co-opted by secular interests (Halloween!), and the challenges of co-parenting with a non-Pagan partner. We may also discuss the pros and cons of practicing Paganism with children as part of a community and explore some age-appropriate activities and resources for parents.

Sharing Abundance through the Magic of Kitchen Witchery

In this ritual, we will activate and share the magic of abundance using the power of herbs and spices to kindle our witch's will. Together, we will concoct a batch of wealth-drawing spell that each attendee is invited to take home for use in their personal work.

This ritual will include a brief introduction to kitchen witchery and is suitable for witches and non-witches of any experience level. Together as a group, we will pinch, pour, and stir to empower the spell.

This ritual is accessible to any level of physical ability. This crafting is mindful of sugar and gluten allergies, and does not use animal products. No special materials are required. Ritual attire is not necessary. Come as you are!

Listen Up, Trans Witches

An exercise in speaking powerful truths, this session is intended to provide space for trans and non-binary witches to share our stories of surviving in the interstices, of developing our practices while navigating gender and sexual identities in the “real” world. Where do we belong? How do we find our way to that place? Guided by a timer, each speaker may relate a story of exploration and magic. In the spirit of open exchange, this session is designed to be open to all who would like to listen, although we request that only trans and non-binary people speak during the session.

Sigils: History and Craft

Sigils are a hot topic these days, and they've been a core part of Dash's magical practice for years. If you've always wondered how they're constructed and a bit about where they've come from, this is the event for you. Dash will discuss a bit of the history of sigils before they share three ways that they construct them. After the lecture portion of the event, you will have the chance to practice sigil crafting on your own, and if you're willing, share your work with other attendees. When you leave, you'll have all the knowledge you need to include sigils in your own practice when they fit your work.

Sacred Circle Dance

Sacred Circle Dance is a moving meditation based on traditional folk dances from around the world. Come enjoy the the experience of dancing mindfully in a community of cooperation, emotional support, and acceptance. The "Sacred" in Sacred Circle Dance is non-denominational, referring to the spark of sacredness within each dancer and in the energy we create together through dancing. People who have experienced this form of dance often report feeling calm, balanced, and peaceful as a result. Suitable for all skill levels, each dance is easily learned. As the name suggests, the dances are danced in a circle or a line (open circle), so dancers need not bring a partner. All are welcome in the circle. Our motto is "There are no mistakes, only variations."

Saints: A Pagan Perspective

Saints are something many witches have assumed are strictly part of Catholic or Afro-syncretic practices. However, a short investigation into the historical and cultural nature of Saints reveals that this old form of ancestor veneration fits into a broad interfaith perspective, including polytheism. While the explanation is useful, the examples are even more fun.
