Mutsun Language Coloring Book Fundraiser

mutsun coloring book

Kanyon CoyoteWoman Sayers-Roods of Indian Canyon is fundraising for another round of prints of the Mutsun-Ohlone Coloring Book, an important indigenous language revitalization project. It’s one of those “all or nothing” fundraisers that needs to raise the entire target amount in order to receive any of the money, so please consider DONATING and/or spreading the word, especially if you or anyone you know is residing upon unceded sovereign Ohlone territories (the so-called San Francisco Bay Area).

Also, for those in the area as well as allies elsewhere, please support the struggles to defend the West Berkeley Shellmound and Juristac from desecration by developers and sand/gravel quarries respectively.


Offering One Spiritual Protection Consultation!

As a perk for the Strong Roots Wide Branches Pan-Polytheist Temple fundraiser, I am offering one spiritual protection consultation in exchange for a $70 donation:

One hour consultation on spiritual protection, specializing in work with ancestors of family and tradition. May include divination on specific problems, targeted spirit-work, and facilitation of stronger relationships with your own protectors. Available in person or online.

I also encourage everyone to check out the other new perks, including Bay Area honey harvested on Day of the Dead, beautiful artwork, and more!


Fundraiser: Strong Roots Wide Branches Polytheist Temple

Help us put on a Pan-Polytheist Temple and Hospitality Suite at Pantheacon 2018!

Our suite will provide a fully functioning, dedicated Pan-Polytheist temple space for prayers and offerings. We will also provide Polytheist-focused classes, rituals, workshops, and spiritual triage services. We are dedicated to providing inclusive, safe, and welcoming space for all con attendees.

The main focus of our Temple hospitality suite will be to provide space for folks to worship and meaningfully connect with their Blessed Powers in the ways best suited to their personal paths and traditions, within what is possible in a shared hotel space!  We will also be providing spiritual triage services as needed, including spiritual cleansings, divination, and other services. Though our main focus will be providing open worship space in our Temple and hospitality to both our human and divine guests, here is a small sampling of some of the rituals, classes, and workshops that we will also be offering at the Suite:

Rituals

·         Matronae Devotional

·         Honoring the Ancestors of Resistance (in which I will be a lead ritualist!)

Classes and Workshops:

·         Polytheist Meet & Greet

·         Introduction to Polytheist Beliefs and Practices

·         Irish Polytheism 101

·         Gathering for Polytheist Trauma Survivors

·         Introduction to the Matronae Cultus

·         Furious Revels! Parades and Processionals Throughout Europe (and the

opportunity to get costumed up for one!)
