As many of you know, each fall I participate in the All Souls Procession. This is a local event that is about mourning, honoring the dead, and community. The event features a mile long walk/procession that culminates in the burning of a bunch of petitions in a gigantic urn:

As part of my work for Osiris, I like to extend the offer out to anyone and everyone to submit a petition to be carried during the procession and then place into the urn to burn. People write all sorts of these in these petitions:
- Things you wish to release from your life
- Things you are embracing
- Things you are remembering
You name it (they don’t approach this entirely as an execration).
If you would like to participate in this rite, please send me any petitions you’d like to have placed in the urn on November 9, 2014.
I will be accepting petitions until noon, PST November 8, 2014
As stated above, you can place whatever you like on these petitions (feel free to check out the All Souls website for more ideas on how others do this, you can submit a petition there, if you’d like), and no you do not need to be of any particular religious persuasion to participate. Just make sure I get them by the date listed above.
You can submit your petitions to me here via Tumblr, through FB (for those of you who have it) or directly to devoTTR[at]gmail[dot]com
This event is run purely off of charity, so if you are inclined, please donate to the organization that makes this possible.
If you have any questions, lemme know.
