Kayleen Asbo 

For Love of the Grandmothers:

A Celebration for All Saints/All Souls Day 

Join Mythica for a two day online festival of story, art, music and ritual in celebration of the ancestors. On All Saint's Day, cultural historian Kayleen Asbo will share the French Legends of the Boat of Bethany: Mary Magdalene's arrival on the shores of Provence with her brother Lazarus and sister Martha as they carried the bones of Jesus's grandmother, Saint Anne. Catherine Braslavksy will lead us in Medieval music written in celebration of this community of pilgrim saints and we will explore cross cultural traditions for these Holy Days.

On All Soul's Day, the "Day of the Dead", artist Emily Grieves will offer stories of the forgotten grandmothers of Mexico,  while Kate Munger (founder of the Threshold Choir) teaches us simple chants and iconographer and ritual specialist Sue Ellen Parkinson leads us in a writing practice to connect to our own ancestors as we share their stories and light with one another.

This two day event is available on a sliding scale from $30 (reduced tution) to $180 (Patron donation of tuition for self +  scholarship for another) and includes access to a video recording for later viewing and downloading.
