Ringing Anvil is a program for personal transformation and spiritual development. We host activities, gatherings, and education to help seekers learn to be better leaders, ritualists, and agents of transformation.
We believe that change begins with you, and becoming a change agent means doing deeply intensive personal and spiritual work. Together, we reach for our dreams, we explore our shadows, and we connect to the divine within and without.
Ringing Anvil events include monthly activities that are open only to members, as well as public events, classes, conferences, festivals, gatherings, and experiential arts. We use language of myth, dream, and the arts to engage all our senses.
All Ringing Anvil events will support personal growth, community building, leadership development, ritual skills, and creativity.
This group is open to people of any spiritual or religious path, though we will be using tools common to Pagan, Earth-Centered, and Shamanic traditions. We believe that in using the ecstatic language of myth, music, dance, painting, sculpture--that all the arts, and that ecstatic and earth-centered work--engages transformation at a deep subconsious level. Through the arts, we connect to spirit.
Our intention is spiritual growth and cultural transformation, with a focus on teaching tools for leadership, community building, event planning, facilitating workshops, designing and facilitating rituals and ceremonies. We will also teach esoteric skills in divination like Tarot and dreamwork, as well as tools such as the Chakras, Alchemy, and other skills and tools as there is interest and as we are able to bring in guest presenters.
You should join Ringing Anvil if:
You are a seeker, a drummer, an energy worker, an environmental activist, a Pagan, a gnostic, a healer, a change agent, an artist.
If you can imagine building a collaborative art piece the size of Stonehenge as a way to connect to your spirituality...if you can imagine singing, dancing, and drumming together to build community...if you are interested in the logistics of how to design an effective ritual, or lead a successful community...if you are as interested in ethics as you are in energy...if you can imagine sitting in a circle together under the trees, talking, sharing, or even learning how to compost....then Ringing Anvil may be the place for you.
