Ritual Zone – VanPPD 2016

At the centre of it all, the Ritual Zone is dedicated to all kinds of ritual presentations. This space is large and open to accommodate any size of ritual!

It wouldn’t be Pagan Pride without ritual presentations. Each year, Vancouver Pagan Pride opens and closes with ritual in the Ritual Zone.

See below for full schedule and descriptions of rituals planned throughout the day on Saturday, September 10, 2016.

1:00 – 2:00 PM We Can Reimagine
Ritual by Silver Spiral Collective

Join the Silver Spiral Collective in a ritual exploring the power held by Pagans to imagine and create a better world. Inspired by the re-creation inherent in neo-Paganism, this ritual seeks to empower us to reimagine the very roots of our social, political, and economic structures. This ritual aims to be accessible for all. It is suitable for all experience levels, including non-Pagans and children are very welcome, though the ritual is not child-oriented. Participants are welcome to bring a chair if standing during the ritual doesn’t work for you. Let us know if sight is an issue and we can provide assistance and we can provide a copy of the script if hearing is an issue. Additionally: there will be no mandatory public speaking, Sharpie markers will be used briefly by participants [optional], and the shared food and drink will be water and grapes [optional]. If you would like to join us and have a specific need or request, .

Learn the chant in advance!———————————————————-

3:00 – 4:00 PM Community Ritual with Violet Redekop

One of the great joys of Pagan Pride Day is a chance to learn or remind ourselves of the greater community of pagan folk that we are a part of. This ritual will be in celebration of that, of our community. For those taking the Ritual Construction workshop, we will be discussing and formulating this ritual in that workshop.

5:30 – 6:00 PM Closing Ritual
