Dark Gods and Goddesses Panel

Posted on Updated on

Odin,_der_Göttervater  Almost all pantheons have divinities or supernatural beings who may be regarded as on the dark side and who primarily deal with sickness and death. In the North, we have Odin and the valkyries, as well as some of the elves, vettir, and the Underjordiske (Under-Earth Ones). Heading south, there are Charun, Pluto, Apollo, various demons, Set, and more. Christianity has Satan/Lucifer and a legion of various devils; Islam has Shaitan and Iblis. Judaism seems to have demons (lower case d) floating around, but no major Dark gods or goddesses. Tibet, China, Japan, India, and Africa have Dark Ones, as do the cultures in the New World. In this panel, we shall explore the nature of these Dark Ones, contrasting and comparing their attributes.

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.
