Posted on

Please join Tchipakkan and Chris Kimball on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, 8-26-15, 8-9 p.m. est.
New to CTCW, but well known in the Connecticut Pagan Community, especially fans of CWPN Harvest Gathering, Chris Kimball will join Tchipakkan on the New Normal.
At the conference Chris will be presenting workshops on the heathen background to the Grimm fairy tales, how and why people can connect with the spirit of the forests, and the spirits that are even older than the gods. We will probably cover these subjects, and other topics as well.
Please call in with any stories or questions: 619-639-4606

Workshop Spotlight: What Dreams May Come

Posted on Updated on

What Dreams May Come – understanding and unlocking your dreamsHolman_Josephs_Dream

Winter is a time for dreams. What we dream in the dark heart of night holds significant wisdom for us. But often it is hard to unlock the kernel of truth nestled deep within the symbolic, poetic, metaphorical language of the dream. We will share dreams and learn effective methods based on the work of dream pioneer Jeremy Taylor for unpacking the layers of meaning available within. Even if you rarely remember a dream this workshop can helpful. Bring a dream or a snippet of a dream to share.

Juniper TalbotJuniper Talbot began her psychic and magical training as a witch in 1982 and is currently an Elder in Lenai Aine, a Celtic witchcraft coven. She began her study of Tarot and the occult in 1983, through Servants of the Light, an off-shoot of the Golden Dawn, and continues to study with Builders of the Adytum, an esoteric school founded by Paul Foster Case, focusing on Tarot and Qabalah. Juniper has extensive knowledge and experience Celtic myth, ritual and magic, having written and taught on Celtic subjects for over 25 years. Juniper also works actively with dreams and co-facilitates a monthly Dream Circle in her hometown. As a professional dancer and choreographer, Juniper has toured widely to teach and perform both traditional and creative dance/ritual pieces based on her connection to the earth and ancient ways. In 2004, Juniper was chosen as a delegate representing Paganism to offer “Dancing with the Earth” at the Parliament of World’s Religions held in Barcelona.

Panel Spotlight: Trickster Panel

Posted on Updated on

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!)How_loki_wrought_mischief_in_Asgard_by_Willy_Pogany

Trickster Panel

Sometimes one gets the impression that those who call them selves Erisians are simply looking for an excuse to cause trouble. But often as one panelist said “You don’t choose them, they choose you.” and often the trouble they cause results in valuable learning experience.

This one should be lively- especially if the entities feel invited! Our panelists Starwolf, Lady AMber Dawn, Taliesin and others will be folks who’ve worked (intentionally or not) with Tricksters like: Eris, Loki, Coyote, Hermes, Lugh, Esu, Gwydion, Raven, or others…  They are humorists and teachers, although the stories are probably funnier in retrospect than being lived through. Come laugh and learn.
