Liber Resh vel Helios as Ritual
Where: Four Quarters Interfaith Sanctuary, Artemas, PA (see http://4qf.org/)
When: 5:30 am before Sunrise, June 16 to 1:30am, June 17
This ritual is an extension and interpretation of Aleister Crowley's Liber Resh vel Helios ritual, which is an adoration of sun done at sunrise, noon, sunset and midnight. It also uses a lot of readings from "Awakening Osiris," a translation of the Book of the Dead by Normani Ellis and the Invocation of Ra from the Sanctuary of Thoth. We will also be doing short workings at each of the stations of the day. These rituals will have a similar format with variations to go with the gods and time of day being celebrated. The intent of this ritual is to align ourselves with solar energy and become receptive to manifestations of that energy in its natural cycle. The gods invoked will all be of the Egyptian pantheon and this ritual will have elements of Egyptian magic in its workings.
HVGW will also be performing an Egyptian themed new moon ritual after dinner service and immediately before the dusk adoration in service to Four Quarters. Volunteering opportunities will be available. [ Edit: 2018-06-05, moon service is now scheduled before instead of after dusk adoration ]
Please RSVP with HVGW no later than June
9th 14th if you wish to go. Be aware that there will be a fee of $10 per night to camp at the Farm (see http://4qf.org/ for details). On Saturday, breakfast and lunch will be provided by HVGW for participants, and dinner will be served at the Farm kitchen as part of the Moon Service. While participation in all solar ritual stations, just the lunar ritual, or all ritual stations is recommended, participants may choose to participate in any ritual stations.
