Ishtarfest 2019

June 7-8th
Check out this year’s line up!

“From the Great Above, Inanna opened her ear to the Great Below.”

The Hands of Change coven presents Ishtarfest 2019, To the Kur and Back, to be held at G3 on June 9, 2018!

Join us as we explore our Pagan roots in our 4th Annual festival celebrating the goddess Ishtar/Inanna.
For those of you wondering, the Kur is what the ancient Sumerians called their underworld. In the myth of the Descent of Inanna, the goddess passes through 7 gates in order to enter the Kur. We will be exploring that myth ritually throughout the festival.
Throw off the cares of the modern world and immerse yourself in Babylonian culture and worship for the weekend with us! Ishtarfest will feature rituals, sweat lodge journeys to the Kur (you won’t want to miss it!), as well as our signature fire/bardic circles, potluck, and a vendor & psychic fair.
This festival is in honor of Ishtar (also known as Inanna and Astarte) and the Babylonian pantheon, helps you learn a little about our Pagan roots in the fertile crescent of Mesopotamia and is designed to fill you with festivity and delight.
Bring your household guardian to be charged by the light of the Summer Solstice sun! (Household guardians are protector spirits that guard your home and can take the form of an object, statue, rock or even plant that is placed near the door to your home).
Overnight camping will be available.

Registration is open!
