Talking Stick
A Talking Stick is used to help us to become Sacred Listeners in a Sacred Space. Through the use of a Talking Stick we open and can be opened to deep thought and feelings, an expression of communication that is unlike our day-to-day lives. The things said and heard can be painful, joyous, sad and profound. The circle is Sacred Space, and nothing said in the circle leaves the circle. We will learn all this by DOING, after some instructions and a smudge, we will experience the power of a Talking Stick.

Druidic Council of All Beings
Following in the tradition of Eco-Buddhist Joanna Macy members of the ritual team will be calling down the spirits of the animal and plant kin within themselves so that they may speak to us of their difficulties and challenges in a world of extinction and global warming. In this full ADF Druidic rite we will be giving offering to the nature spirits of red and green kin and asking for their blessings and wisdom in return. This will be a ritual of mourning what has been lost so that we may move forward into the future with wisdom and power.

Some have even called Murray “the Grandmother of Modern Witchcraft,” but what exactly did her witches do? Using Murray’s books as a guide we will recreate the witchcraft rites of the early modern period, the height of the witch­trials!

Soul Communion
Those of us born into the highly individualized culture of modern “america” experience a chronic lack of deep connection at a soul level. This missing piece of the human equation leads to all manner of issues, from alcohol and drug dependence to self destructive behavior and depression. This ritual will offer a taste (just a taste, mind you) of the kind of soul-level communion experienced by our ancestors who lived their lives in a tribal setting. Bring a small token to represent yourself on the mesa. (You will get it back.)
