Ask the Psychopomp

Oct. 30 - Nov. 02, 2014

Ask a question. Roll the dice. The answer may arrive in the form of a song, a shift, a letter from the otherworlds, or some other form entirely. There are many possible outcomes. Even the Psychopomp cannot predict which will happen.  The outcome depends on you, your question, and of course, the dice.

Stay for 5 minutes, or for as long as you want. Come and go as you wish.

* A psychopomp is a magical being that moves in between the worlds, shapeshifting, trickstering, and most of all serving as a guide for souls moving from one world to the next. The psychopomp’s work is with death, transition, and change.
