Khalil Gibran said in The Prophet:
“Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.”
Come and join us on November 8, 2014, beginning at 6:00 PM (ritual begins at 7:00 PM), as we peer over the precipice of the Unknown and use music to bring forth and dance with our ancestors, our family, and our friends who have passed on before us. We will travel from the land of the living into the realms of the Underworld in order to meet with and leave messages for our loved ones who have moved to their next great adventure.
We will travel down to the Otherworld Circle over uneven ground, so be sure to wear appropriate shoes.
Following ritual there will be a potluck dinner with the dead so bring something you would like to share with the other attendees, both corporeal and ethereal.
As part of our public outreach program, we are collecting new, unwrapped toys to be donated to the Toys for Tots organization. If you are donating a video game or DVD it must be new and in its original shrink-wrap, so bring something for those less fortunate children.
There will also be a few vendors to buy neat stuff from as well as a bake sale and a raffle to assist in raising money for Blackberry Circle for future open rituals.
- Yourself (and anyone else you would like to corrupt)
- Money (cash) for raffle or to buy from the vendors
- A sense of humour (humours will be for sale at the gate)
- Food to share at feast
- A camp chair or other chair to rest your weary arse in
- More sense of humour
- And hell, go ahead and bring your kids, but if you don’t keep an eye on them they may be sacrificed (we’re joking folks, jeez!)
