Discordia: An Offering To The Goddess of Strife


Discordia: An Offering To The Goddess of Strife

Thelesis Lodge: 1627 North Second Street, one block South of Cecil B. Moore.
7 pm on Wednesday, Sept 9 and
3 pm on Saturday, Sept. 19.

On Wednesday, September 9, 2009, at 7 pm and Saturday, September 19 at 3 pm, Thelesis Lodge will present Discordia: An Offering to the Goddess of Strife. If you are looking to calm strife in your own world… or to sow Discord amongst your enemies… then Discordia is here to help you.

Inspired by the story of the Judgment of Paris in which Discordia, Goddess of Strife, threw the Golden Apple of Discord between three Goddesses and their fight to prove themselves the fairest of them all sparked the Trojan War, this event is both theatre and magic spell. If you choose, you will receive a magically charged Golden Apple and instructions on how to use it to calm or cause strife. Or you can just sit and watch. Either way, Discordia will shake you up.

A cash bar will be available both before and after the performance.

The Robert Fagels translation of the Iliad was the source material I used in putting together the ritual, along with original workings with the Goddess Herself.
