Creating Mandalas for Spellcraft and Meditation - by Rindy Tietjen
"As above, so below." Microcosm, macrocosm. From tiny strands of DNA to the movement of the plants, the entire known universe is composed of patterns. Mandalas were originally patterns designed by practitioners of Buddhism to aid in their meditations. Personal mandalas can be created and used for many purposes. This class will include discussion and hands on practice in using tarot cards, runes, crystals, and herbs to create your own personal mandalas. 1.5 hours, at Rindy's booth.

Who knows, you might even make a friend or two if you're not careful! 2 hours.

All are welcome to participate, including kids (must be 21+ to receive adult beverages - bring your ID!). Costumes are encouraged! Camps: Decorate your camp, have some sort of light or something to denote that you are "open for business," and have things to offer both adults and children, such as chocolates, candy, snacks, lemonade for minors, wine, margaritas, etc. Trick-or-Treaters: Bring your own cup (and ID) and a bag for goodies, and bring a flashlight and/or wear something lighted so you can find your way and others can see you (it's dark out there!). What if you want to do BOTH - offer treats and walk around? Simple! Take turns with camp-mates, or just walk around with the group until you get to your camp, then offer your own goodies to the trick-or-treaters. 1 hour. Meet at the main fire at the top of the hill.

The Give Away will act as our closing ceremony. Please bring something that is special to you, or has brought something good to you, that you are now ready to pass on to someone else. This gift doesn't have to be something physical; it can be an offer of help or service. Once something is given away, all strings to that gift are broken; the gift is given with no expectations. Each person will take a turn to talk about their item and its meaning, then place it on the blanket. Once all items are laid down, if you see something that speaks to you, and no one else wants it, you may take it. 30 minutes.
