Our story for Summer 2023 is Inanna and the Seven Gates of Me. Our ritual arc team will be inspired the poem of that name by our own Jynx Bower. Here’s a taste of the poem:
The hero of the cedar forest
spurns the great goddess herself.
Hot anger shakes her Heavens and she swears vengeance.
Reckless, selfish, lashing out
with tongue of silver and crown of gold.
For this, the Great Bull has fallen,
cut down like wheat, puppet strings loosed from their moors.
His blood pools around the feet of an impetuous Queen.
She does not care to seek forgiveness,
but redemption will find her, nonetheless.
