PantheaCon 2006, experiences

I'm back at home from the convention, and with a bit of rest and reflection I'm ready to delve into my experiences this past weekend. PantheaCon 2006 was, as usual, very busy and highly provocative on many levels! I feel like I grow a little bit each time I attend- certainly I tend to be presented each year with many valuable opportunities to learn and think about what I've been doing, where I'm headed, and why. It's a lot of fun, and very exhausting all at the same time- and there were certainly times this year when I wanted to just go back to my room and mull things over! But there's never enough time to do everything that I want when I'm there as it is, so it's important to take advantage of as much of it as possible! Achilles wants to go back already- but honestly, I don't think I can handle too much of this sort of thing all at once. I'm happy to wait out the year getting ready for the next visit- although there are rumors of the con becoming a biannual event.^_~

So this might get a little bit long, and I'm thinking of posting these in multiple reports. I'd like to start off with the main reasons why I go to this convention, though- those events of a Kemetic nature. Then I'll fill in with the rest as I have time.^_^

The Church of the Eternal SourceCollapse )

As it turns out, the next event involving the ntjrw at the con was the Skhmt ritual- and as it was a public ritual, I'll give my account of what happened to the best of my memory.^_^ However, I'm still contemplating some aspects of what happened, and I'd like to review my write up a little bit more before I actually post it.
