Patron Saints with Papa Newt

Our festival opens with a workshop that sets the tone for charitable assistance to the victims of last October's wildfires. Papa Newt will lead a participatory presentation on the veneration and powers of saints in Catholic folk magic, both European-American and African-American, their patronage, and how to develop a working relationship. Along the way he will introduce us to a few of his favourites, including Saint Expedite, sometimes called the saint of the Internet. He'll also facilitate the creation of a community altar where we can approach Saint Joseph the Carpenter with appeals for help in rebuilding the homes and business buildings of our devastated town. The altar will be kept up throughout the festival and people can leave petitions and donations for contribution to the Redwood Credit Union's rebuilding fund.

Lithomancy with Jon Saint Germain

For centuries, stones and crystals have been valued for their pretty colours and inherent magical qualities, and certain gifted individuals have employed them for divination.

* Answer questions with common river rocks
* Cast colourful gemsstone readings
* Divine with the Elder Futhark runes
* Tell the future with Witch Stones
* Use common coins for character analysis

Teach you how to select your stones, train them for divination, and use them to read for yourself and others. Beginning with simple two and three stone castings, and working up to multiple-stone layouts.
