Though I've been giving workshops and presentations about herbalism and natural health all along, it has been quite a few years since I've attended a Pagan gathering. The ones we had been going to for years had mostly degenerated into loud parties with a little too much public intoxication for my taste (and I had a small child to consider, way back then) so we just quit going. Mystic South promises to be a bit more grown-up, with more of the flavor of a con than a wild party.
So I'm delighted to announce that not only will I be attending Mystic South this year - I'll also be giving a workshop on Modern Minoan Paganism. In addition to this being the first festival I've attended in a while, this is the first official "public outing" for Modern Minoan Paganism; up to now, the tradition has largely existed online and in private rituals and books. So I'll be sharing what we've created over the past few years in terms of pantheon and practices, along with many examples of the beautiful Minoan artwork that helps inspire our spiritual path. I hope the folks who attend will find it informative and maybe a little inspirational.
Mystic South takes place in Atlanta, Georgia (USA) in late July. If you're in the area or able to travel, I hope to see you there!
