9th Biannual Weekend Workshop

Mark your calendars for another biannual Weekend Workshop. We are anticipating some growth and moving our location to Nature's Treasures, the rock and crystal shop just up the feeder road from Fiesta on I-35 north (across from Hancock Center).

With the expansion of our capacity to seat 100 people, we will be increasing the vendor space so that we will have up to five vendors this time around. If you know a vendor of Pagan/Heathen oriented wares, please let us know.

Vendors so far are:

Wren's Runes

Split Rock Studio

World on a String

Dragonscale Chainmail

Mystic Serenity

 

 

We will continue to have a BYO food/snack/drink buffet.

 

Workshops for the event are as follows:

The Future of Paganry in Austin by Torvald Adolphson

A continuation of plans and details to advance the Austin-area Pagan and Heathen communities into a self-sustaining religious outlet.

Core Shamanism by Sativa Esper

This is a system of techniques that allows a person to enter an altered state of awareness which may be used to facilitate healing of the self and others. Core Shamanism draws on practices rooted in indigenous cultures and presents those practices in an accessible framework for people living in scientifically and technologically oriented societies.

Mindfulness Meditation for Pagans by Cliff Hamrick, MS, MA, LPC
Participants will learn how to use mindfulness meditation as a daily practice to improve other spiritual practices as well as for everyday benefits.

An Introduction to the Elder Futhark rune system by Torvald Adolphson

Presenting a concise history of the true, original Futhark system, its functions and modern usage.

Intuitive Aromatherapy by Joanne Carpenter

The physiology of the olfactory system as well as health and well-being benefits for our body and spirit, plus basic recipes and intuitive applications.

Oracles, Shamans and Otherworld Walkers by Spark Adolphson

A brief, concise look at the role of seers from a variety of origins, from the Greek Sibyl to the European Seidr; an introduction to how various cultures approached the need to keep the lines of communication open between worlds and who traditionally filled those roles.

    What a good time! The presentations were informative and fun, the food was great, and the vendors had just what I was looking for. I'd do this again in a heartbeat. Loved the venue, Torvald.

    Torvald, I sent you an email about vending. I'm interested in doing so, if we get to set up indoors. Someone associated with APPD gave me your email since I had vended there.

    Who made that corn casserole? It was divine! I would love to have the recipe. You can email me at thunderhoofdesigns at yahoo dot com if you like.

    Hey Torvald!

    I was wondering it you were bringing your mead to the workshop like last year?

    January 13, 2013

  • Cliona nic T.

    Torvald, will you need any paper plates/plastic cutlery/cups, or should we all bring our own? If you want to provide them, I can help out with that.

    January 3, 2013

    • Torvald

      We still have a bit of rotating stock. But yes any additional helps.

      January 3, 2013

  • Stephanie

    Oh, and: When you say, "We will continue to have a BYO food/snack/drink buffet" is that essentially a potluck?

    December 29, 2012

  • Stephanie

    Do we have the last vendor yet?

    December 29, 2012

    • Torvald

      No. Lunar flame backed out so would like two.
