6:15-7:45pm - We Are Aradia - Workshop & Empowerment Ritual
#WeAreAradia reminds us: "These are the times we were made for." The Goddess Diana saw her people were suffering from tyranny. She sent her daughter Aradia to earth to teach us the secrets of witchcraft so that we could rise up. We don’t need a savior. We must save ourselves. We need to be the Witches the world needs.
We will first do the workshop/discussion, followed by a ritual. We'll cover some history (ancient and modern), look at practical witchery (offensive and defensive), discuss resources and ideas to fortify your practice. In ritual we will invoke Aradia to once again bring her wisdom to us - to protect, guide, and strengthen: to empower everyone who needs it. "For now as witches we all shall rise!"

8-9pm - The Mechanist & The Star Goddess Live Concert
The Mechanist & The Star Goddess is a dynamic music & dance project with Tempest, Nathaniel Johnstone, and Davis Petterson. They create improvised music and dance on the spot, inspired in the moment – as well songs from the repertoire of the Nathaniel Johnstone Band. The project title/inspiration evokes the exploration of the liminal space between the confines of the precise concrete world and the limitless divine.

7:30pm: Ritual Movement Workshop (Stirring The Cauldron) with LIVE MUSIC
9-10pm: Performance with @The Mechanist & The Star Goddess -

...

Workshop:
"Stirring The Cauldron: A Ritual Exploration of Movement"
Movement is a key element to connecting the mind, body, and spirit. The more we can shift from static to active practice, the more embodied our magick and other metaphysical experiences become. In this ritual-meets-workshop, we'll focus on how to incorporate dance elements into your practice regardless of
age, ability, experience, or tradition, using the metaphorical cauldron as our guide. Live music will accompany this workshop.

Immediately followed by being able to see these concepts put into action live with The Mechanist & The Star Goddess:
