First Annual Manitoba Goddess Festival

Cloaked Realm is pleased to announce our participation in the upcoming Manitoba Goddess Festival.

The Manitoba Goddess Festival is in the first year of operating and is Canada's First Goddess Festival! The goal is to create a space that is open to people of all genders, orientations and ways of being who want to celebrate the Feminine Divine in a format that is Spiritual, Creative and Intelligent. At the Manitoba Goddess Festival, we honor and celebrate the Goddess in all of her many facets, manners and forms. Behind this is a desire to create a safe, loving, non-judgmental, nourishing, healing, joyful and fun environment that is communal, connective and ALIVE!

Each year we honor a different Goddess and working with her aspects to create a new and unique experience - festival after festival. This year we are honoring Freyja -- Norse Goddess of Sexuality, Lust, Love, Warriorship and Death. The festival will also be featuring a variety of extraordinary speakers, movers and shakers on a cornucopia of terrific topics, Ceremonies, Belly Dancing and Fire Spinning, A Burning Freyja and the Freyja Temple, The Aurora Borealis Healing Tent and Goddess Spa, as well as the wonderful Hearth Market hosting a variety of funky and fantastic sellers! More information to come soon, so check back often. Hope to see all you warm and beautiful hearts there!

The end of a journey brings the start of a future.

"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." ~ Seneca

Its been a wonderful six years and Cloaked Realm ~ Pagan Emporium has been through many incarnations. We started out with just a small table filled with sterling silver jewelry at a fair to a full homebased shop bursting at the seams. As we step into our new future we can't help but thank those who helped and supported us along the way and not forgetting all the wonderful customers who walked through our doors.

This is not a time to mourn but rather celebrate the new steps that this little shop is about to undertake. So for that reason Cloaked Realm will be hosting one last Witchy Ware Party on Sunday May 30th, 2010 from Noon to 6PM. We will be serving refreshments and of course wonderful conversation. AND in order to thank all those who have been a part of this journey we will be having a THANK YOU SALE! Everything 20% off (excluding consignment). That's right, even statuary and books will be 20% off. Plus everyone walking through the door will receive a free gift (and a really special gift for the first ten people)

Hope to see you all there!



I promised an update so, here goes.

As of June 1, 2010 Cloaked Realm will cease the homebased operations. We will no longer be open Sundays. That's because we will be taking possession of our new store front! Yay!

Our new store will be located at 355 Langside just north of Portage right beside Hungover Empire! So exciting! One of my favorite stores! As well with this new step we decided a name change was in order to bring new life and celebrate change.

Book and Curiosity Shop

We hope our new name will appeal to a greater audience while still holding true to our Pagan roots.

Lastly, while the location is fabulous the space is in need of major repair. So we expect to have at least a few months dedicated to renovations but we are planning to open the shop full time at the beginning of September 2010. We'll be having a huge grand opening party so keep coming back for more updates!

“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.” ~ T.S. Eliot

Beltane in the Park ~ May 2nd, 2010 ~ Starting at Noon

Greetings, all

Beltane in the Park is happening this Sunday, May 2, 2010 in Assiniboine Park in the Central Picnic Area. Festivities start at noon, ritual at 2:00 with potluck, picnic, and maypole to follow. Come rain or shine (or the slight chance of snow). Dress for it. The Beltane festivities take place whatever the weather!

How to Find the Site
From Corydon Avenue, enter Assiniboine Park at the main park entrance and go straight north toward the Pavilion along Conservatory Drive. At the Pavilion, turn left until you get to the first driveway on your right, and you will find the picnic area with the sheltering roof. Beltane will use the sheltered picnic area for the potluck. The ritual takes place behind the picnic area in the grassy space through the trees. A few of us will get there before noon and will keep our eyes open for people. We'll be taking shelter in the picnic shelter. Look for us.

What to Bring
Like any other Manitoba outdoor event, dress for the weather. And since the weather is unpredictable, be prepared for change. If the weather's nice enough, there'll be time to drum, sing, dance and otherwise visit and make your own entertainment between events.

Beltane in the Park is also a picnic, where people bring their own food and share it. With that in mind, REMEMBER that people have allergies. Please know the ingredients of your food. Known allergies include, but aren't limited to, Peanuts, Seafood, Mushrooms. For the reasons of safety, good health, and just plain respect, LABEL YOUR FOOD INGREDIENTS.

Don't forget that there'll be seed swapping. (Thanks, Tim, for getting that going. And welcome back!)

Body, Mind & Spirit Show ~ April 18th, 2010

Cloaked Realm is pleased to announce that we will be vending at the Body, Mind & Spirit Show on Sunday April 18th, 2010; 10AM to 5PM at the Indo-Canadian Arts & Cultural Centre 479 St. Mary's Rd (behind Midland Appliance). This means that Cloaked Realm will be closed on the 18th.

Admission: $5 at the door (11 and under free)

Parking: Free parking on site.

Concessions: Food and drink will be available at the concessions stand.

NOTE: There is no ATM machine on site. Please bring cash for the vendors.

The purpose of the Body, Mind & Spirit Show is to bring like-minded people together to learn and find peace. We all start out not knowing. As we journey through life we encounter many events; some small, some large but these events and how we choose to let them affect us start to shape who we become.

Our event promotes holistic living, spirituality and alternative healing; showcasing mediums, psychics, card readers and channellors as well as alternative healing practitioners in the fields of Reiki, acupuncture and massage therapy to name but a few. To compliment the aforementioned, we have exhibitors displaying and selling items to assist you on your path. Items such as books, crystals, jewelry & health products.

Open your mind and heart to healing and enjoy life. This moment is all we have. We can always find excuses not to change our lives. Put that same effort into improving your life and watch what happens.

See you there!
