Building Consent Culture
Rape culture is the problem; a culture of consent is the answer. With dominant culture as the backdrop, rape culture is nearly comprehensively a feature of developing sexual identity. Coming from the shadow of dominant culture conditioning, we aren't told how to ask for, or offer, clear consent. In this workshop we will talk about consent; how to give it, how to ask for it, and how to play with the process of consenting in a fluid and integrated way. Workshop will be closed 10 minutes after start. Ages 13 and up welcome. Younger kids welcome with parent.

Invoking the Divine - Ritual Invocations
Invocations are a thread between human and the divine – and invocation is a skill that can be learnt and practiced. Effective invocations draw the presence of the Goddess, Deity or other being into the room, the ritual, and even into the person invoking. In this experiential workshop we will learn, step by step, what makes an effective invocation and practice these skills. Experiment with words, tone, pacing and volume as well as gestures, movement and that sense of imminence that is felt in the most powerful invocations. Bring along a Goddess, Deity or other presence you would like to invoke.

As without, so within - we are all ecosystems
Pagans use the phrase "as above, so below" to explain the connectedness of our world(s) - but considering recent research into the many other organisms that share our bodies perhaps it's time to add "as without, so within". What might it mean for Pagan ways of being to consider that we are not individuals, but instead that each of us carries an entire ecosystem within our body? Hear about recent research on our microbiomes' interact with our human body systems, discuss how those ideas interact with pagan cosmologies, and join a guided meditation to discover how that knowledge might impact our spiritual practices. It's Science! and Spirit!

Biological Towns or Techno Cities?
Two quite different paths to sustainability are developing; can they co-exist? I perceive two radically different approaches to sustainability developing, one of dense, ‘smart’ cities and another of dispersed eco-villages and market towns. I suspect that most advocates of each approach are at best mildly aware of the other concept, but choosing wisely bids us understand both well. A summary of the 2 approaches, their advantages and constraints, and how Hestia and Hephaestus, respectively, symbolize these options, will be presented, followed by discussion.
