PantheaCon 2018

Monday, 19 February 2018

With the close of PantheaCon earlier today, this concludes the third somewhat major retreat-like event I’ve attended since 31 January. I have a lot to process, and will be processing all of it for some time, I think.

I really like it when PantheaCon and Lent overlap. And this year at a workshop for self-care, I heard another Christian-Pagan talk about a Lenten practice of self-care rather than self-denial.

I learn something new every year, and I am blessed and privileged to do so.

PantheaCon 2016: Rejoice!

My previous two posts about PantheaCon 2016 dealt with some of the problematic things I encountered. But, that’s not to say that the P-con was a downer overall. It wasn’t. After all, the whole thing started with Anne’s second degree initiation, using a script I wrote. Since she faced the ordeal of kidney failure, her heart stopping, and a stroke, there was no need to have any ritualized ordeal in the ceremony. To be able to do this with our coven, on the weekend of our first anniversary, was a blessing in and of itself.

First, there was the fact that Anne and I were able to even attend the con this year. With her unemployment after a critical illness and my persistent underemployment, we were just presuming we wouldn’t be able to attend this year. But, friends paid for our registration and helped us fix our car so we could be there.

There’s always so much happening at P-con, that I’m never able to attend everything that sparks my interest. But what I do attend is usually awesome, even if I find something problematic. I’m still being made to think and reflect on how my religion really is my way of life. And, there are those lovely persons whom I usually see only at the con. It can get to the point that my face gets tired from all the smiling.

So, don’t let my musings on the problematic things I’d encountered mislead you. I thoroughly enjoyed PantheaCon and am already looking forward to next year.
