Inglis Concert Hall
Each day from 7-8pm there will be a Main Ritual. We invite all Beltanians to attend! Drummers, please bring your drums and join in.
Let your heart be your compass. A sacred space is set apart from the outside world, away from the mundane and daily chit chat. In this circle we are all invited to play a part. There are no spectators here. Every Face we see around us is a co designer, co-creator, and co conspirator in the making of magic. Let us touch the outer edges of our comfort zone, moving and stretching, giving and accepting.
This is where the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual unite in the divinity of the self.
Please arrive by 6:45. The ritual begins at 7pm and no late entry is permitted. Plan to move, breathe, and sing together! Seating is provided for those with mobility issues. The ritual will last no longer than one hour. All are welcome.
This ritual is led by Oliver Crow and Venus Lotusfire who come to us from Spark Collective in Oakland, CA.

Oliver Crow says, “Ritual can be a crucible in which to explore ourselves and to excavate expressions of who we are now and who we are becoming.” Oliver practices an approach to creative expression through ritual arts which he finds to be a powerful tool for self-discovery and authentic expression. He believes that immediatist ecstatic ritual practices can be a be a doorway to greater authenticity, clarity, and to creating communities where our inner and outer lives can be commingled. Oliver is a co-organizer of the Bay Area Spark Collective. He has facilitated and organized rituals in the fire circle tradition, since 2009.
