We had wonderful concerts this weekend. Friday night Katie and Christ LaFond played flute, harp and guitar. They are shown here with Tchipakkan (co-chair). Below Jane (or other co-chair) poses with Kelliana and Jenna Green who sang and played for us on Saturday evening, and between them Sarah Trow, the winner of the free concert tickets on Facebook. Both concerts ran long, so we are feeling especially lucky and grateful to our wonderful artists!
Thank you Lois Fitzpatrick for these great pictures!
You can still join us at CTCW!
We have day rates: $45 for Saturday, or $25 for the Concert alone. $35 for Sunday.
Do check the updated schedule, there have been a few changes.
Thor got sick and couldn’t make it, but other speakers are presenting their classes again in his slots including two new classes: A presentation on Gilgamesh at 1 on Sunday, and Great Balls of Fire: Lady AMber Dawn, Jane Sibley, and Mockingbird will talk about the many fire and thunder gods, volcanos and others like them.
And don’t forget the Lady Moon Concert with Jenna Greene and Kellianna 7-9!
If you aren’t there- look what you’re missing! Day rates available!
Almost everyone has a favorite method of looking for information about the future, come and see a bunch of them. This workshop will feature a brief overview of a variety of divination methods including tarot cards, scrying, pendulums and even tea leaves. Anyone is invited (and encouraged) to bring and share their own favorite forms of divination. This will be an exciting and wonderful hands-on experience to anyone, including those that are simply curious or just starting out. We will have many decks of Tarot cards, oracle decks, pendulums, scrying mirrors and bowls, and other mediums that can be used for practice should anyone want to try their hand at them.
Hope you’ll be coming! The conference starts at noon! Day and evening passes (for the concerts) as well as full weekend rates available at the door!
Fate Destiny and Wyrd Panel
The Greeks would ask the Pythia, and the Romans the Sybil to tell them what their fate was, and while she would speak accurately, their words were often misunderstood and those attempting to escape their fate created it. The Norse felt that a man’s wyrd was set, and how he met it was the test of his character, yet a person’s luck could be taken from him and given to someone else. Palmists call the line running from your wrist to your fingers your Fate or Destiny line- but what is Fate/Destiny/Weird? If things aren’t predestined, how does prophesy work? Different Christian denominations consider the variations of the predestination question incredibly important articles of faith. How does your spiritual path (collectively or personally) view destiny?
Come to the Atrium and listen to several of our speakers and guests talking about various issues. (let us know if you’d like to be on a panel, you don’t have to be a speaker, just have something to say about the topic. Let us know with the form below, or come to the facebook group and join the conversation!)

He can also be heard as a panelist on the topics of Magick in Gaming, and the Ancestor Panel. (Friends will also visit his lady Mary who’s running Hospitality this year.)
