VOX LUNA : Full Crow's Moon Supper

“The Mind void yet the Thought fully formed.
The Body hungry yet the Spirit replenished.
The Wood unfinished yet the Table carved.
The Platter empty yet the Larder full.”

- Midnight’s Table. Robert Fitzgerald

The Witches’ Supper is an enduring motif of the Sabbat, an ecstatic communion of the body, spirit, and the land. Join us tonight to celebrate the Full Crow Moon and usher in the Vernal Equinox of this year, Tonight we feast among the crows with a special menu created exclusively by Melissa Madara, co owner of Catland. Ritual and ceremony will be presided over by Damon Stang and members of King’s County Coven #1 .

The Crow Moon is traditionally understood of the final Moon of Winter when the cawing of the crows signifies the cracking of the frost to reveal the fertile soil ripe with worm and seed. Crows are special allies, they react to hunger and invasion by vigorously vocalizing their feelings. They display happines, anger and sadness. Tonight they dine at our side.
Our meal will be served banquet style and is set as follows :

Slow Cooked Black Chicken - pearl onions / black pepper / ginger
Truffled Root Mash - celery root / potato / parsnip
Farfalle - sweet peas / enoki / mint
Farro Stew - spring beans / artichoke / lemon
Radicchio Salad - beets / pistachio / orange / fennel
Fresh Rustic Breads - green olive / spring onion / thyme
Rhubarb & Berry Tarts - creme fraiche / roasted white chocolate

VOX LUNA is a conversation, a dialogue, and an investigation into the meanings and potentialities of witchcraft as a cultural practice in both its devotional and operative manifestations.
Witchcraft is a feast! sometimes a celebration , at times a lamentation.
VOX LUNA is not a lecture or a class in the traditional sense, but rather a convocation, a gathering, an immersion, a collusion, a sabbatic ascent.
We gather to both practice and discuss, to weave wyrds but also to enchant. We gather to listen and to speak, but also to dance, to charm, to ensorcel and enthrall.
VOX LUNA is spiritual forum neither requiring nor advocating any formal devotional practice. Our table stands at the top of an invisible mountain in a nameless country without borders. All are welcome at our supper, a Sabbatic meal to be shared among the living, the dead, and that which is both and neither.
