“Light is returning, even though this is the darkest hour. No one can hold back the dawn…”
Please note, due to size restrictions, we are limited to 40 participants, first come, first served.
The event is held in a secret location, along with complete detailed schedule of events will be divulged only to those who register!
MYSTERIUM is whispering your name….
Join us for an alchemical blend of music, art, ritual theater, deep play, magick, spoken word poetry, invocation, meditation, divination, transformation, illumination and celebration!
Now is the time to open to new mysteries, deeper layers of knowing, and clearer ways of understanding.
The time for MYSTERIUM is fast approaching, and we wanted to let you know that the door is swinging open for you to join us.
Alchemy has been defined as the ancient and modern art of transmuting matter into spirit.
Alchemy teaches us how to experience our day to day lives on a much deeper spiritual and magickal level. Modern alchemy is not an esoteric study of hidden things, but a joyful discovery of the deeper mysteries we can experience in everyday things, and in each other.
Seeking community, friendship, knowledge, and fun?
This weekend, we will explore how we, as individuals and as a community, can refine and develop our understanding, through discussion, experiential workshops, movement, dreaming and celebration.
…an in-gathering of old and new friends, a point in time where we can reflect, as individuals and a community, the light that shines within each and every one of us.
…an opportunity to play, to create, to learn, to deepen in our relationships with each other and ourselves as we mark the wheel’s turning from darkness toward luminosity. Many of us will be wearing white for the evening’s ceremony; please join us!
Bring a book that has significant meaning to you for the Introductions and Welcoming Book Exchange ceremony! Give away a book, get a book to read.
There will be two pot-luck meals during the event both of which are vegetarian – no fish, no flesh. Please bring healthy organic (if possible) vegetarian food to share and your own plate/bowl and flatware as the Vegas Vortex has gone green and no longer provides paper products.
The MYSTERIUM RITUAL is…
…our Saturday evening’s working, a journey through mind, body and spirit using music, movement, voice and stillness to turn heavy lead into purest gold.
… PLUS the weekend includes engaging playshops presented by Jeff McBride, Abigail Spinner McBride, and our special guests.
