Raising the Sacred Fires with Chicago Ringing Anvil

Three days of learning skills to facilitate ecstatic, transformative rituals, including hosting a public Beltane ritual to practice skills.
April 26-28


Imagine the most magical ritual you’ve ever been to, or wished for. You can lead rituals that are that potent, memorable, and effective. You can make possible transformative spiritual experiences where participants connect to the divine. 

Through discussion and hands-on practice, this workshop explores what works and why. We’ll work with common pitfalls, structure, flow, and logistics, to ways of strengthening charisma, and building energy through chanting, movement, rhythm, and connection.

Experienced ritualists will learn ways to craft more transformative, participatory rituals; new ritualists will learn foundations. Workshop participants can practice their skills by taking ritual roles for the Beltane ritual.

We will explore skillbuilding in:
--Public speaking, charisma, and engaging the group
--Authenticity and speaking from the heart
--Performance skills
--Structuring a ritual
--Facilitation techniques and managing logistics
--Raising energy
--Chanting in ritual
--Facilitating trances
--Anchoring altars

....and much more. What have you always wanted to learn about facilitating rituals and ceremonies?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
