Workshop Descriptions

Ritual Participation Skills by Phaedra Bonewits
The priest, priestess, or ritual facilitator in your magical or religious ceremonies can’t do everything themselves! Starting from the premise that ritual is a participatory activity, not a spectator sport, Phaedra will lead an exploration of the ways you can intensify your ritual experience. Something for everyone, whether they’ve been to five hundred rituals or none.

Naturalist Paganism by Lupa Greenwolf
You don’t have to believe in the supernatural in order to be pagan! In this workshop we’ll discuss how to find magic in the mundane, how science can inform spirituality, and reignite the physical world with wonder and awe.

The Tarot of Bones by Lupa Greenwolf
This unique divination set combines the messages of nature with the archetypes of tarot. You’ll learn how the deck was created, and how to get the most out of its use.
