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.

Goth Interest: Graveyards Through Time

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

Largely ignored or forgotten about in the modern age, the graveyards of the western world have a long and rich history. They were once the centers of social activity for medieval communities, serving as the sites of festivals and even playgrounds of children. The industrial age changed all this, making them horrific and unsanitary places to be shunned and feared. Come and learn how these burial places were redeemed and reclaimed. And discover how they evolved into grand spectacles in the Victorian era, and why they are still among the best places to enjoy an afternoon.
