I'm passing this call for workshops along for a friend of mine who is organizing programming for the Milwaukee Pagan Unity Council's Ostara Festical on March 28th, 2010. She's looking for more workshop presenters, and she might be interested in something like a facilitated drum circle before or after the closing ritual.
My partner Mark and I are facilitating the closing ritual, and it will be in a participatory, ecstatic style with chanting and drumming, and we'd welcome the inclusion more drummers.
Blessings to all! Forwarded call for proposals below.
We are seeking potential workshops for Milwaukee Pagan Unity Council's
Seventh Ostara Festival to be held on March 28th, 2010 in Milwaukee,
Milwaukee's Ostara Festival celebrates the Spring Equinox and kicks off
the Milwaukee Pagan Festival season- the time when the weather is
better for coming out to see the community you are a part of, or
expressing who you are spiritually to the outside world. This year
there will be a provision of quality workshops, discussions, and
seminars for the local pagan and alternative spiritual beliefs
The theme for workshops is "Seeds of Change." These seeds could be
introducing new ideas or concepts; paths or traditions; and skills and
knowledge within our community. These are the seeds that help us grow,
and continue Milwaukee Pagan Unity Council's commitment to change,
growth and education.
We would like the activities at Ostara to be participatory or inviting.
We hope that participants will take what is shared at Ostara and share
it with others through the seeding and growth of local groups or
