The Abysmal Witch will be teaching a number of workshops and presenting one ritual at Vancouver’s Pagan Pride Day 2016 on Saturday, September 10th.
Sound is powerful, unifying and connects into some of our deepest magics. This is a “hands” on workshop (mouth on just sounds too strange), where you will get to practice toning, simple word chanting and some standard song chants (as well as learn the differences between them). Join us as we get our vibration on!

Ritual Construction Workshop
Come and learn about the many and varied points to consider when planning ritual, from individual rituals to large-scale group ones. We will discuss the basic layout to consider, as well as common problems and solutions. We will put these ideas into practice by planning the Community Ritual that will be run later in the day. (Attendance at the following ritual is not required.)

Community Building Ritual
One of the great joys of Pagan Pride Day is a chance to learn or remind ourselves of the greater community of pagan folk that we are a part of. This ritual will be in celebration of that, of our community. For those taking the Ritual Construction workshop, we will be discussing and formulating this ritual in that workshop.
