The Lady of Shalott** was cursed. Her life experience was limited to visions of reality reflected in her mirror. We too face a world of second hand and anecdotal information. Join us as we explore the differences between direct and indirect experience. The Lady risked everything to know truth. What will you do?
**A ballad by the English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1832

“Draw Near And Fear Not”

Opening Ritual



1) "Down We Go" - Unknown

Down we go to the world below,

We bring with us a light to show.

Up we rise with the dark in our eyes,

We bring to light the peace of the night.


2) “Crack the Mirror” by Judy Olson-Linde

Crack the mirror from side to side

From the Truth no longer hide

Crack the mirror from side to side

Make a choice to open wide


3) “Farewell” by Judy Olson-Linde

Spirits of Earth and Sky,

Spirits of Sun and Sea.

We've honored you this night,

And shared your mysteries.


Tho now we end this rite,

When we next call for thee,

We ask that ye return,

Farewell and blessed be.
