Reminder: PDX Rite of Death and Wisdom 2017

Come As You Are to...
CAYA Coven’s Rite of Death and Wisdom
Hosted by High Priestess Yeshe Rabbit and High Priestx Jaina Bee

Saturday, October 28, 8:00PM

Regents Center, 3185 NE Regents Drive, Portland, OR 97212

$10-$20 donation requested, no one turned away for lack of funds.

This is our ritual honoring those who have gone beyond, who have built the cultures we have inherited, who innovated, dared, led, and served humanity and the Earth with honor, who lived in ways we admire, and who brought forth ideas that have shaped us or educated us.

In this feminist ceremony, the Goddesses Athena and Medusa will be invoked to tell their story in their own words. Years of patriarchal sheen have been painted atop the story of Athena and Medusa, but in this rite we will conjure their original wisdom, and learn more about the power of the shedding serpent in ourselves.

Up from the cemetery
Out of the ground
The dead join us in our dance
to turn the Wheel around
Spider weaves a new year
and Serpent sheds her skin
Change from without and
Change from within

You are cordially and joyfully invited to the Festival of Heart and Harvest celebrating the feast of Lammas/Lughnasadh at the Sacred Well in Portland, brought to you by CAYA PDX and the Order of the Black Madonna.

Our great Dark Mother, the Mother of All who loves and watches out for all Her children no matter where they are on the path of life or in the world, bids us ask about those who are vulnerable in our society. She asks us, “Do they have enough?” We ask ourselves: “What kind of community can we build if workers are treated well, food is plentiful, love is plentiful?”

Come and join us to celebrate and create abundance for ourselves and community!

This event is also a food drive to help those struggling with food safety in our community, so please bring an offering of canned/dry goods to donate. Most needed items at present are: canned tuna or chicken, natural peanut butter, nuts and beans, brown rice, quinoa, low sodium canned soup, whole grain cereal, and oatmeal; remember, no glass containers please. Thank you!
