Eye of Horus Celebrates 13 Years

Eye of Horus Celebrates 13 Years

Eye of Horus is celebrating our store’s thirteenth year throughout October. We will have a proper Anniversary Party at the end of the month, but there are numerous events throughout the month with authors, artists, and ritual. It’s the witchiest month of the year, and we are doing it up right.

October 28th Anniversary Costume Party

Where: Eye of Horus Metaphysical Store, 910 West Lake Street in Minneapolis. click here for map
When: 7pm to Midnight, Friday, Oct 28, 2016

This pre-Samhain soirée will feature door prizes for the first 50 customers, starting at 7:00, refreshments, hobnobbing and a mini-psychic fair. You don’t have to wear a costume, but you can get $5 off readings if you do. The theme? Anything magical, steampunk, occult, fantastic or fun. We will have three readers on hand until midnight. Call 612-872-1292 to reserve your reading in advance.

Eye of Horus first opened our doors on October 31st, 2003. We’ve moved a couple of times since then, but the 3rd location, at 910 West Lake Street, in Minneapolis, is a perfect fit.

Kari Tauring carries the cultural traditions of her Nordic heritage in story, song, and dance and is called a staff carrier (völva in Old Norse), a culture bearing woman like those preserved in the art, poetry and folksongs that Kari loves to sing and dance.

Do you want to hear Kari sing from her new double album Ljos and Svart?

She sings of the Norns, of Hulda, the Germanic goddess of spinning, seasonal change and the life/death/rebirth cycle. She chants the runes. She sings of Huldre, Trolls, Trees, maidens and magic, and the four dwarves who hold up the sky:

“Austri, Vestri, Sudri, Nordri”
This is the chant of the Four Directions of East, West, South and North and the names of the Four Dwarves which hold the sky (Ymir’s skull) up over Midgard.

Do you want to ask questions?

This intimate setting at the Eye of Horus is perfect for tender bear lullabies, whispering hidden folk, and the poetry of Minnesota’s own staff carrying woman, Kari Tauring.

Concert is free but space is limited so call 612-872-1292 to RSVP today!

Kari combines deep scholarship and personal practice to create new interpretations of what it means to be Nordic for performance, in teaching, and in her writing and musical recordings. Called “innovative folk” music, Tauring gives modern relevance to the ancient poems and songs that inspire her.

CDs will be available at the event.
