The "Wheel of the Year" is often divided into eight. Two Equinoxes - The end/beginning of terms here at GSW, Two Solstices - The longest Day/Night of the year, and then the 4 Cross-Quarters in between each of these. This is a pattern both of nature and cosmology, and times of the year often worship by many native traditions. In this spirit, we too shall start to celebrate these times in the virtual campus with a weekend of fellowship, workshops, classes and events!
This Cross-Quarter Virtual Conclave will be salute to both "Beltaine" in the Northern hemisphere - a sign of the fertility of Spring, the union of opposites and re-birth, as well as "Samhain" in the Southern Hemisphere, a sign of the Last Harvests, rememberence of loved ones lost, veneration of ancestors and the acceptance of Death and Dying.
If you haven't been to the virtual campus in a while, please come by and attend what you can! Everyone over 16 is welcome to attend! (Per Linden Lab rules). We are very close to finally getting the youth students on there, but not within the week, sorry. However, there is a good possibility they may finally be there by the June Solstice! We'll keep our fingers crossed!
In a Hurry??? To get to various points on the virtual campus and basic instructions, go to the Marauder's Map thread here: http://forums.greyschool.com/viewtopic.php?f=273&t=30712 and click on the appropriate hyperlink!!! See you there!!
