Make your own Roman Style Curse Tablet
All across the Roman Empire a common form of folk magick was the so-called ‘curse tablet,’ or a spell inscribed on a soft sheet of metal and then turned over to the gods. Often these spells were used to recover stolen goods, have success in court, or secure love. Formulaic incantations were scratched onto lead or tin by the petitioner and were part of asking local patron deities, especially liminal gods such as Hekate and Saturn, for assistance. In this workshop we will review some of the hundreds of actual tablets that have been found underground or in springs across Europe, and using their formulas for petitioning a deity, we will each make one of our own! Supplies provided, limited spots available.

About Rayna Templebee Rev. Rayna Templebee is a daughter of the Ocean Mother and High Priestess of Beachfyre Coven in Miami, Florida. She was raised in a family that spoke with plants and initiated as a Witch in 1983. She is a faery seer and one of the founders of Turning the Tide Festival.


The Gifts of Saturn – Help Craft Main Ritual!
We invite all of our Turning the Tide family to help us craft invocations to Saturn to be used during our main ritual. During this time, we will discuss and meditate on the Gifts of Saturn: the Secrets of Plants, Opening to Living in Wealth, New Beginnings, and Ending Negative Situations. You will be invited to break into groups based on the gift that calls to you most. Maybe it’s an area you wish to strengthen, or one you have always been drawn to. Each group will craft their own invocation to Saturn to petition His guidance in that area. One person from your group will read the invocation during Main Ritual.

About Alpandia Alpandia is a Seer and Strega living with her cats in South Florida. She is the “Hermione” of Casa Verde, the second Florida hosting of HoB.

Please bring your own White Eagle Medicine Cards, or other medicine card deck you have. I will use different decks in this category but focus primarily on the shapeshifter tarot, shaman tarot, and medicine hat medicine cards.

About WanderingFreeSpirit I walk a path that truly has no name. Some aspects of my path do resemble shamanism, animism, and even some old folk magic paths. But in truth I don’t fit into any of these paths completely. Learn more about me at my website.

Turning the Tide Workshop: Eating the Dead – How Plants can Teach us about our Ancestors

2015_ttt

We are so excited to announce the next workshop that will be presented at Turning the Tide 2015.

Eating the Dead: How Plants can Teach Us about our Ancestors

Ancestral energy runs through our genealogy, our bodies, and blood. Ancestral agreements between green bloods (the plant world) and red bloods (humans) form who we are today and by exploring ancestral foods we can learn more about those ancient agreements. This workshop will introduce basic and helpful information about working with ancestral energy in a variety of forms but especially through working with plants that have strong ties to our ancestry. By reviewing the long and magickal process of plant domestication, a complicated contract between humans and plants, we will learn tools for coming into alignment and agreement with the plants that fed the bodies of our ancestors. Those same bodies (and plants) in turn fed the earth where our ancestors lived and worked alongside plant devas. We will conclude with discussion (and feast!) of three plants that are key to common ancestral groups such as the Celtic, Native American, and West African peoples. We will contact the overarching devas of these three plants who knew and cared for our ancestors. Please bring your own bowl and utensil for the feast

Our Eating the Dead workshop will be offered by Rayna Templebee. Rayna Templebee is a daughter of the Ocean Mother and a bee priestess. She is a student of faery seership as taught by Orion Foxwood and has been an initiated Witch since 1983. The Mighty Dead keep her very busy.

Turning the Tide Workshop: Connecting with the Ancestors through the Dark Goddess

2015_ttt

We are so excited to announce the second of the workshops that will be presented at Turning the Tide 2015.

Connecting with the Ancestors through the Dark Goddess

This workshop involves discussion and ritual to help us connect with the Ancestors through a journey to the Dark Goddess. Through a guided descent into the Underworld, the Realm of the Ancestors where the Dark Goddess reigns, participants can develop and nurture personal ancestral bonds. This is a co-ed workshop. This session is two-fold:

Discussion: How we can work with the Dark Goddess to connect with the Ancestors, and preparation for ritual.

Ritual Journey: Inspired by the Descent of Inanna, participants will descend into the Underworld, passing through three gates as they descend, and three gates during the ascent. This is a ritual of transformation. During the Descent, we are challenged at each of the three gates, and meet the Dark Mother. During the Ascent, participants will reflect upon the messages received and the gifts of the Ancestors.

This workshop is hosted by members and friends of Daughters of the Goddess (DOTG). We are a private group of women who share circles to learn, support each other, develop our craft, and to create sacred space. It is facilitated by Rhiannon Morribrid, Strix, and Jette.
