The workshops serve as a Celtic Cauldron of Plenty…
Everyone gets what they most need.
How is this possible?
How is it possible that three years on
from first tentatively considering the Epic of Gilgamesh
as a potential subject for treatment at such an event
it can still be teaching us things?
Lots of things!
Like a Celtic Cauldron of Plenty it keeps on giving…
Quite early on we wondered about the conception of the Sumerian ‘Gods’,
and precisely how they could be said to ‘move amongst the people’?
And when our numbers grew,
we knew that we had to embody them in the East of our Temple.
One by one we lost them,
to illness or circumstance or both…
Before we had quite lost them all,
it had become inevitable that the East would be populated by a vacuum…
…And then during the preparation for, ‘The Bull of Heaven’,
one of our Companions suggested that the Fates could also play the Gods…
And people who had initially shrunk from playing one role,
eagerly took on two…
And brought them both home!
The workshops serve as a Celtic Cauldron of Plenty.
Nobody gets everything.
Everybody gets something.
And we now know how the Sumerian ‘Gods’
can be said to move amongst the people…
