We are glad to share with you, with permission, an announcement from Faelind, High Priestess of the Tree of Knowledge Coven in Dallas. (We edited it only slightly. Goddess Alive! is a different ritual from the "Dancing the Goddess Home" ritual that was part of the Goddess 2000 celebration.)
“Goddesses Alive! A Ritual with Masks”
has been chosen to be performed at the upcoming Parliament of World Religions
in Salt Lake City, Utah, in October 2015. Originally created in celebration of the Goddess 2000 Project by M. Macha NightMare
(Aline O’Brien) and mask-maker Lauren Raine
, this ritual draws from several different contemporary and historical Pagan paths. Incorporating music and singing, chant and narrative, dance and direct interaction with attendees, 13 embodied indigenous, ethnic, and historical faces of Goddesses
speak to the issues of climate change and care for creation, respect for women and Nature, and can bring an experiential awareness of the divine feminine.
What: The 2015 Parliament of the World’s Religions
When: October 15 - 19, 2015
Where: Salt Palace Convention Center, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
The Parliament is the oldest, the largest, and the most inclusive gathering of people of all faith and traditions. The first Parliament took place in 1893. Since then, this historic event has taken place in Chicago, USA • Cape Town, South Africa • Barcelona, Spain R 26; Melbourne, Australia - and this year will be in Salt Lake City, Utah!
I am honored to be presenting Inanna among the 13 Goddesses. . . .Let me know if you would like to participate. We need technical assistants (low-tech for hand-held mag lights).
I hope to see some of you there!
