DUMB SUPPER FOR THE DEAD / ROSEMARY ELLEN GUILEY
One of the most unique experiences of the conference weekend! The dumb supper is one of the most powerful and moving rituals we have for honoring our loved ones on the other side. It is a meal eaten in silence and in reverse order while we contemplate our relationships with those who have passed on. We create sacred space and open and close with ritual. Music will play in the background. An altar for the dead will be set up, and participants are invited to place photos and mementoes of loved ones, human and animal, on it for the evening. Seating is extremely limited for this event! Includes full dinner and experience.

This includes methods of protection to keep things from following you home, protecting your home, and methods to clear a home so things won't get back in.
