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.
Optimism is a skill. It can be learned, and with practice you can get better at it. This class will explore tools for bringing the light of the Sun with us through the dark places in our lives, working with the Bright Gods when we are in the shadows, and using a discipline of optimism as a tool for spiritual transformation. Optimism doesn’t come naturally to many of us, so we’ll look at specific techniques we can apply to develop the skill of choosing joy.
