10:00 AM Oya Dark Mother

with Luna Pantera, Priestess


Tsunamis,Earthquakes, Hurricanes, and Tornados create: sudden change, devastation, ruin and loss. This is the energy attributed to Oya. She is the "Mother of Change". We sometimes wonder when she comes into our lives, "Why me? What did I do to deserve this?" Instead we should ask, "Why have I been blessed with this gift?" "How do I work to make this transformation as easy and painless as possible?"


Come with me and meet the "Dark Mother" and find out what she has in store for you as we begin to head into the dark. Learn to face your fear with Oya by your side knowing that you will always make it to the other side as long as your learn the fine art of "listening" to her call.


12:00 NOON Spinning a Life of Gold: Abundance of Black Isis

with Dailey Little, Priestess & Reikimaster


One of the basic rules of abundance is “like attracts like,” but what if you’re filled with anger, frustration, or poisonous thoughts? How do you make the leap from knowing what you want to embodying it? Come work with the wisdom of Black Isis. Learn how Aset (Her Egyptian name) used her poisonous scorpions to escape imprisonment, and how to identify and transform aspects of your own shadow nature to work with you as you reach for your goals. This workshop includes: alchemical myth-telling, trance, and practical application of the concepts.

3:00 PM Oshun Warrior Working

with Heaven Walker, Priestess

When we hear the name Oshun we think of her in her role as the Goddess of love, beauty, and sensuality. However, there is far more to Oshun than meets the eye. Oshun is also a fierce warrior who protects her children and her community. She carries a machete under her belt and rouges her cheeks with the blood of her enemies. Join us as we cut away our fears, initiate ourselves as warriors, and honor the awesome power that we share as women.
