Feri Friday™ April

Apr. 17th. 2009 
"Eerie One of the Ivory Tower: The Courtship of Inspiration" 

Some days the world shimmers like a jewel all around us, and we are filled with insight, sparkle and magick. Other days life seems gray and drab, and we feel we can't touch anything meaningful. What makes the difference? Is there anything we can do to increase the sparkle? You are invited to share in an evening of Courtship! We will commune with the Feri Moon Goddess, in the guise of a quirky little poem from the Drawing Down the Moon rite in the Bloodrose line of Feri. We will explore symbolism, we will sing, we will journey to her realms. Far from being hostage to the whims of our Muse, we can learn to coax that elusive force that the Welsh know as Awen, the Irish know as Imbas, and we know as Inspiration - surely one of the great Promethean fires!

To attend this event, you must be: studying Feri with a Feri teacher, have studied (with a Feri teacher) or an initiate of Feri.

Feri Friday in November

Feri Sex! Sex in Feri! Life Force abounded in the Great Grove during Storm's workshop. He took us through several very moving exercises, most developed from his own personal work and then we went into circle to stir-up that sexual, sensual life-force. You could almost see the hot streaks of red passion flitting about the Grove and we
opened our own life-force into heated night air. Wow...Feri Sex...Sex in Feri... 
what more can I say???

Feri Friday in October

In October we had Medusa join us in Working with Our Beloved Dead. There was a quiet nature to this work and Medusa led us in an explorative conversation, deftly guiding us with her personal practices. We cast a FireDrake Feri circle and invited our dead to join us. This was a quite personal and individual working, as each of us connected on various levels with Our Beloved Dead. Food and touch were shared in silence. After the dead were invited to depart, some of participants spoke of their experience, while others at in silent contemplation. Doing this work felt so right at this time of year.

May all our Beloved Dead feel our deep reverence and love for them.

Feri Friday in Sept

Wow! Talking with the Peacock Lord in the Redwood Grove was truly'somethin else'. We a short introduction from Dominic and then cast a FireDrake Feri Circle, with FDF students doing all the parts! They were fabulous! The Peacock Lord's possession of Dominic was clear to all and after He had settled a bit, had a drink, remarked on the clothing He was wearing and whisked His tail feathers around the circle, the Peacock Lord beckoned to each of the participants, asking if they had a question for him and speaking to each person directly. We had arranged to have two transcribers, at Dominic's suggestion, since folks might not recall all that was said to them in the moment. The Lord's words were revelations, confirmations and surprises to many of the participants. When all had been addressed, we thanked the Lord and His Kaseka assisted in bringing Dominic back to us. More cakes and wine and conversation ... and then the circle was opened. Wow! What a beautiful night with the Peacock Lord!
