Dionysos, the Hospitable One,
Invites You to Attend a Lammas-Tide
3pm - 8pm
The Lord of the Vine, Dionysos the Hospitable One, invites you to a Theoxenia (Thee-ox-zania), an ancient Greek feast of Divine Hospitality. In honor of our Harvest of First Fruits (eatable and otherwise), let us join together in a Community Feast—sharing food, drink, and conversation.
The ancient rite of Theoxenia was modeled largely on the Greek symposion, a word that means “drinking together.” Guests ate, drank mixed wine and water, and shared conversation on a topic chosen by the host. The topic of choice for this Theoxenia is Gratitude, Service & Love.
In Gratitude, we celebrate our Harvest together and offer thanks to the God and to all our Divine Ones.
In Service, we will take turns serving food to each other during the various courses of the Feast.
In Love, we join together as a community to share our harvests and our joys with each other under the purview of Dionysos Symposiarch—Dionysos Leader of the Symposion and Lord of Divine Hospitality.
You are encouraged to bring entertainment--a story, song, poem, topic for group discussion; all offerings are on the theme of Gratitude, Service & Love...or any part thereof. Please specify when you register if you would like to entertain.
This is a free Lammas event for all Ffynnon Members and supporters, but attendance will be limited so please register soon!
We gladly accept any and all donations to help us as we grow and become a better space for our community.
