Genesia 2016


Today we celebrated the Genesia at HTAZP.

We did an ancestor ritual honoring Hades, Persephone, Hermes, Hekate, and ultimately all cthonic and psychopomp deities.  We made offerings of ribbons to the Gods, our deceased blood relatives, families of choice and kin, and heroes and teachers.

Our space was kept safe by our fierce Temple Guardian, Toby.

After the ritual, we processed to a local cemetery and left flowers at various graves that did not appear to have been tended to recently. 

Feasting included pork, cheesy mashed potatoes, corn, apple cider donuts, frosted brownies, and fruit.

Our next festival will be the Panaia on November 6.

May the blessings of the Gods be with you.
