Making Rituals That Matter with Starhawk & BrightFlame
How do we bring magic and myth into the actions that address the crisis of our time? How do we take our spiritual work out into the world in embodied, compassionate and active ways? How do we create rituals that can bridge barriers, inspire and support social change, and help us heal and renew our hope when things get tough?
Whether experienced or new to priest/essing, join us to take your next steps towards creating tight, effective rituals that flow. We'll explore the tools of ritual--our bodies, our voices, movement, trance, and story-weaving--to deepen our craft. We'll learn how to listen deeply to the needs in our homes, workplaces and communities, how to craft intentions that lead to powerful magic, and how to create inclusive, empowering ritual language. Out of our collective wisdom, we'll weave a ritual that leads to justice and liberation.
