     What do you do when death ripples through the communities you are part of?

     How do you respond when grief and bereavement tears apart people, 

     their lives, and their community bonds?

How can you rise up to help others in an environment where death has become institutionalized?

Come join me as we journey through these difficult yet utterly necessary concepts to come to a place of understanding and gain a better understanding of how to provide appropriate means of emotional and spiritual support in your community.

Patricia Lafayllve, author of Freyja, Lady, Vanadis: An Introdution to the Goddess and Freyjasgythja, brings what is known from the remaining source material to bear in this discussion of Freyja. This complex deity was known as the "blot-gythja," or "Sacrifice-goddess," and reigned as one of the Vanir living in Asgard. If there is time, some discussion of unverifiable personal gnosis (UPG) will be included.

Our lives are filled with moments of transition. Some, like birth, marriage and death, have complex, socially influenced secular rituals associated with them. Others, like the onset adolescence, are less widely recognized in American culture. In this workshop, there will be a discussion of the various types of transitions and their secular and religious observances. After looking at the types of life events that could be considered a rite of passage, there will be a discussion of how to craft rituals that support individuals going through those transitions.
