ConVocation is a convention of the many mystical spiritual paths and faiths and the people that follow them who desire to teach each other and promote fellowship among all esoteric traditions.

Since 1995, this 4-day event has brought together over 100 classes and rituals presented by local instructors, internationally renowned guest speakers and authors. Along with workshops, ConVocation offers over 40 tables of merchandise in our Merchant Room, an Art Show and the largest indoor Drum Circle in the Midwest.

For 2013 our theme will be based on the message of the 19th card of the Tarot, The Sun. The theme we are working on from this card is “A Little Illumination, If You Please.” We will be focusing on the messages of the Sun, on our Inner Light, Reason, Personal Power or Youthful Exuberance. We will explore the masculine energies that come from the Sun, and how each of us in finding our Inner Power build our Community.

Saving ourselves with the sacred waters: a reflection on ordinary sacrifice.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Sometimes the hardest thing is simply getting through the day. Sometimes life is hard and magic seems far away, both for ourselves and for those we love. In this workshop we will work with techniques for simple ways to incorporate the magic of the sacred well into our daily practice. We will explore ancient myths about the winning of the waters of the sacred well in Celtic, Norse, and Baltic, traditions, exploring their similarities and differences. We will then talk about how those myths can inform our daily lives, infusing us with healing and strength. In particular we will examine stereotypes of sacrifice and how we as pagans have an ancient and strong tradition of transformational gifting, where she or he who gives of themselves is healed and transformed even as they give.
