Still More Coolness

A Ringing Endorsement: The Feast of Persephone

The first time I ever went to Diana's Grove was almost exactly four years ago (is that all?) in 2001. It was right on the heels of 9/11 and I coerced invited my friend Rowan to go with me. I had no idea that a little over a year past my first camp experience, the thread that would change my life would be picked up at a little retreat center in Missouri. The experiences I had with the community at the Grove -- the skills I learned, the life-changing rituals, the experiences with Self and deity and the intersections of both, the commitment to impeccability -- those things I did in the small space of 72 hours in the cooling temperatures of fall against a backdrop of lovely rolling hills and multi-colored trees... those things set my feet on the path that led me to where I am now.

So many of you have mentioned that you admire my friends, my community, my commitment to my spiritual path. In many, many ways, that started at the Grove. If you can go, I couldn't recommend anything more highly. Tell them RavenFire sent you.

Fall Equinox: The Feast of Persephone
with River and Matt Guynn

at Diana's Grove near Salem, MO
September 23-25, 2005

Inspired by the timeless story of Persephone and Pluto...
...we will dive into the depths of our society's unconscious. We will explore questions such as: How can the Depths be our ally in the struggle to change long-term injustice and oppression? How do we embrace a dynamic of love and devotion for patterns that have been rooted in our societal subconscious for eons, in order to lay new patterns in ourselves and society? How does our love fundamentally change the world, rather than just scratch the surface?

During the day, join us as we find ways to live in active compassion... with passion... for our world, our community, and our selves as unique parts of a larger pattern. And at night, take Persephone's hand as she leads you to the Underworld to meet with her lover. Become a part of the story as Life kisses Death, and Time falls into the arms of Eternity.

At this moment when summer gives itself to autumn and the gate between the above and the below is open, discover how your intentional actions can change all of the worlds.
