Wendy Rule Returns (updated)

Wendy Rule Returns (updated)

On July 5th, Australian Wendy Rule and Minnesota Nordic Roots performer Kari Tauring are re-united in this double-concert at Patrick’s Cabaret.

UPDATE. For those of you who think this is just your run-of-the mill concert, check out this video featuring Wendy calling the quarters and Kari playing her Stav in the background. This was from a prior Minneapolis visit. This is so much more than performance. It is ritual.

Both are modern mystics who draw on ancient myth to lead their audiences on sonic trip to the otherworld, invoking nature, fairies and dieties, as well as just providing great music. As a bonus, Wendy is offering her Ritual Music Meditation Workshop on the full moon before the concert.

Presented by Eye of Horus Metaphysical, this intimate double-concert event at 120 seat Patrick’s Cabaret features two extraordinary performers whose music has been called otherworldly and transcendent.

What: Concert at Patrick’s Cabaret
When: Thursday, July 5th 7:30-10:00pm
Where: Patrick’s Cabaret
Tickets: $17 in advance (buy online from the Eye) or call 612-872-1292

Tarot for Writers by Corrine Kenner

Most people think of tarot cards as a fortune-telling device, but did you know they’re also a great tool for writing and creative thinking? Writers from John Steinbeck to Stephen King have used tarot cards for inspiration, and Italian novelist Italo Calvino went so far as to call the tarot “a machine for writing stories.” You don’t need arcane knowledge in order to use this tool; just and open mind and a desire to jump start and explore ideas in creative ways.

Tarot for Writers

Take the class on Saturday, May 21st! Now you, too, can learn how to use tarot cards to develop your own short stories, novels, screenplays, and poems — with direct guidance and advice from Corrine Kenner, the best-selling author of the Tarot for Writers Guidebook. You’ll learn how tarot cards can help you break through writer’s block, help you with plotting and dialogue, and glean insights into your characters’ past, present, and future. The Tarot cards are rich in symbolism and relationships which can add twists, turns, questions and answers to your prose.  This workshop is extremely hands-on. Bring your projects, your ideas, or notes on napkins! Oh, and of course, a tarot deck. If you don’t have one, our staff can help you pick one out.

Eye of Horus Metaphysical is thrilled to host this class in our classroom.  In the Tarot for Writers Workshop, you’ll learn how to:

  • tap into the archetypal imagery and symbols of the tarot for writing inspiration
  • create characters and stories based on randomly drawn tarot cards
  • use additional cards to develop scenes, settings, dialogues, and description

Corrine Kenner Tarot AuthorCorrine has written twelve books and edited four anthologies, including Simple Fortunetelling with Tarot Cards, Tarot Journaling, and Crystals for Beginners. One of her books, Tall Dark Stranger: Tarot for Love and Romance, was a COVR Visionary Award finalist, marking it as one of the top three divination books of 2006. She created the Epicurean Tarot, and she’s currently finishing a book and deck set called the Wizards Tarot. Her work has also been featured in the Encyclopedia of Tarot.

Corrine has taught tarot classes and workshops in England, Canada, and across the United States — and while she’s recognized as one of the world’s foremost tarot experts and authors, she lives right here in Minneapolis. Wherever she appears, students love her sense of humor and her practical approach to New-Age subjects.

April Topic: Wicca, Friend or Foe? Wicca and Old Craft are NOT the same. How are they similar, how are they different? Can one be both Wiccan and Old-Craft?  The Old Craft Discussion Group has been breaking old taboos and new ground since June 2008. Every month we meet, a group of visionary elders and inspired neophytes, wholly committed to questioning everything, diving in deeper, and crafting for ourselves and our people the Witcheries of the future. Our regular attendees constitute a virtual “Who’s Who” of the Elders of Paganistan; at any given session, it’s not unusual for us to have several hundred years of collective Craft experience to draw on. This rich variety of viewpoints yields deep and often surprising insights into what it means to live the Craft today, yesterday, and tomorrow.
  • If you already know everything there is to know about the Craft–
  • If you’ve read everything Silver Ravenwolf ever wrote–
  • If you figured everything out in 1986 and haven’t entertained a new thought since then–
  • this is DEFINITELY not the group for you!

Your Divine Work: Weekend Intensive with T.Thorn Coyle

May 28th & 29th, (Saturday & Sunday) There is work that only you can bring to the world through your life, your dreams, your hands, your voice, your heart. What is the song of your soul? How can you tune into your own divine nature and shape your destiny? Many of us struggle with our daily, money-earning work because we have a sense that  there is bigger, work that we are meant to be doing. Listen, now, to the calling of the earth and the stars:

T Thorn Coyle

There is work that only you can bring to the world through your life, your dreams, your hands, your voice, your heart. You make manifest this magic, and help weave the cosmos in all its shining beauty.  What is the longing pumping through your cells? What is your life’s purpose and your True Will? How can you tune into your own divine nature and shape your destiny? Once we understand our Divine Work, our lives take on new energy, connection and significance: We are literally creating the cosmos.

In this workshop, we will listen to deity, to life source, and to our own divine nature and ask the question “What is the work of this God?” Whatever the answer to this question – a whisper or a shout – we will take one more step into full power and liberation. We can bring the work we do into alignment with our soul’s destiny and together, we can change this world and all the worlds. We can begin today.

Bring a journal, a cup, rhythm instruments if you have them, and simple art supplies (crayons, paper, pencils, magazines/glue/scissors for collage…).
