Hi there Pagan Space people, Utu here from the troupe. Hope all of you northerners are surviving this last blast of old man winter, we are getting it pretty good here in Niagara.
So I wanted to post some info some of you in the Ohio and surrounding area might be interested in.
I will be at the Winter Star conference in Ohio on the weekend of February 28 to March 2, its Winter Stars 25th anniversary, quite a milestone. Now the DRD will not all be there, but Im there because my Priestess, Mambo Miriam and Priest Louis Martine form the New Orleans Voodoo Spiritual Temple will be there, along with several other temple members from across the continent. This is the first time we have all been together out side of New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina. Priestess Miriam and Louis Martine will be conducting a ceremony with full drum core, which is where I come in. When the temple does rituals the spirit raising and spirits raised is something to behold.
If anyone is interested heres the web link to the event. www.rosencomet.com/winterstar/2008/index.html
Please forward the info if you can, we would really appreciate it. If you have never been to Winter Star, let me tell you, not only great presenters, and a historic meeting of the New Orleans Voodoo Spiritual Temple members, but what a party! Its out there, nothing quite like it. And if any of you are going, please let us know, I would lave to meet you if I have not already.
I wrote a bit of a bigger blog about the special nature of this event for the temple on our myspace page, I cant write another one that big again, so feel free to go there.
Thank you to everyone for sending us nice messages and comments, we really appreciate it a lot.
Have a safe time out there, and please let people know about the event if possible.
Oh yeah, any one with drums are welcome to join in the ceremony, so bring them along!
