Bone Dance

The Kaleidoscope Gathering is Canada’s largest Pagan festival, which has been going for 26 years. The theme this year is “Bone Dance.”

Our own flesh and bone is given to us through our ancestors’ experience and their very DNA, we are fed through cycles of death and rebirth. Within the flesh, below conscious thought, moves the bones. Whether cloaked in skin, fur, feather or scale, whether in joy or despair, love or hate, wonderment or fear, the form of life clings to the bones. We can gain knowledge beyond these cloaks by dancing our minds to the bones; find spirits, find depth, find wisdom, find freedom. In the bone dance, nothing matters, but it all does.
