HERMES Workshop & Ritual: All Liberating

Join us for for a powerful workshop & ritual celebrating the Greek Messenger of the Gods in his "All Liberating" aspect!

"Cultivating your relationship with Hermes"

Join Mage & Priest of Hermes, SAM WEBSTER to learn a deep practice for invoking Hermes in his All-Liberating form. Hermes is the Greek god of commerce, good luck, sudden or unexpected enrichment, crossroads, and hospitality. He may be called upon to remove obstructions to successful commerce and communication, and has a playful, joyous presence. Intended for daily use, the Hermes practice introduces Tantric Buddhist methods in a Pagan setting. This Hermes invocation may be used to cultivate divine vision, develop inner yogas that clear energy blocks, and explore 'secret' yogas that liberate the mind.

This workshop is open to all levels of experience and abilities. The Hermes Workshop may be paired with the evening Rite of Hermes (below).

Saturday, July 27
3:00 – 5:00 pm
* Please dress comfortably in layers and bring drinking water in a reusable bottle. You may also bring a mala (strung meditation beads) if you wish.
