This dream did not happen in chronological order. It happened in reverse order.
I'm gonna tell it backwards so it makes sense but the three parts were reversed.
In 3 parts:
3rd Part: I was driving with my old high school english teacher, Tom, who is a wizard of sorts to my old church (the UU Church of Bloomington) and I kept passing the turns. When I said "Ooops, I passed the turn", Tom said "No, you're going the right way" but he was wrong, so I turned around to get to the church. When I saw it, it was totally different and made of bricks and looked like a masonic temple. Inside I met up with Ethan and Dave Mellish and some of their friends and they were showing me a poster for a little show they were doing and they were expressing that they were sorta bummed that it was happening on the same day as the ritual/gathering that we had planned. The date was January 22nd that both the ritual and the show were happening on.
2nd Part: I was at the Elverton House, but it was different. That was where we were having the ritual, but it had these indoor bridges between levels of the house. Sort of like an indoor Ewok Village. It was Eve Ladyapples' house and An Ka lived there too. It was before the event and I was starting to welcome people who were arriving early. It was gonna start with the men having a men's circle and the women having a women's circle and anyone else who wanted to circle were gonna have a mixed men's/women's circle there at the El. The men's circle and women's circle were each happening somewhere else. After all three circle's got done we would converge for a community ritual. This was intended to be an all day process. I think at this point Eve gave me a necklace with gold trinkets and amber beads on it.
1st part: I'm helping people get to the ritual and because of this am missing it. I'm driving with Sean and Prisna and their baby Kiro of FlowToys and helping them get to the ritual. When I get into the space the ritual is in full swing. Eve and Isis are on the "stage" (front of this big room with very high celings). Shira and Isis are on stage naked laying on their side with one arm stretched up to the celing. The participants are all in an audience formation in varying levels of nakedness. I remember seeing Wing in the crowd and Dave jolley. I remember being impressed that people feel comfortable enough to be naked in such a large group (like burning man, but different feeling). It's very dark in the space. Eve is wearing a tall head dress. When I get to the back of the crowd to drop in the necklace that Eve gave me earlier that day breaks and I start collecting all the beads off the floor.
Then I wake up.
