WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION ~ “Stories for the New Era”
Stories tell us who we are and who we can be. Stories can limit us… or liberate us. The stories we share are integrally part of the magic we weave – they determine what images fill our minds, what possibilities we believe in, what forces we set in motion. Magic teaches us that to make a change, we must first envision it. In this half-day workshop, we will use ritual, trance, meditation, and song to identify our underlying personal and collective stories and transform them into tales of liberation that can heal the world (and us, too).
After the workshop and a delicious organic dinner, we will anticipate Halloween with a Samhain RITUAL & SPIRAL DANCE led by Starhawk and Reclaiming LA. For modern witches, Samhain is the time to honor one’s ancestors and celebrate the cycle of death and rebirth – the beginning of the spiritual new year. Join us in sacred space as we dance the spiral with the Star Goddess, celebrate community, and rebirth our selves and our world. [In support of those in recovery, this ritual is drug and alcohol free.
