Gifts for the Divine: The Art Of Making Offerings- Raven Kaldera
In ancient times, when people wanted something from a deity, they made an offering and asked. Today we are conflicted about whether it’s all right to ask for things, and whether we should pay a price for them, and what kind of a price is appropriate. The art of making offerings, however, can be a beautiful way to be in symbiotic relationship with the Gods. In this workshop we’ll discuss the issue of divine propitiation and share ideas for worthy offerings and what to do with them.
Offerings for today’s practitioner
Offerings are common in many of our traditions, ranging from libations poured by the ancient Greeks and Romans to the animal sacrifices in the temples of the ancient world to bread and milk left out for the fair folk. How many of these practices are still appropriate for us now? What new kinds of offerings might be appropriate instead? Do we need to make offerings at all?
