SHWC2006: Personal Altar 1 by steward SHWC2006: Personal Altar 1 by steward
The 2006 SpiralHeart WitchCamp was held in late July at the Claymont Society for Continuous Education in Northeastern West Virginia.

At one end of The Barn is the Octagon, where the major nightly rituals were held. Approximately half of the Octagon was used as ritual space, the other half (being somewhat under reconstruction) being used as storage space. (You never know what a Reclaiming Witch will want to work into a ritual. :evillaugh: )

This is one of the personal altars set up in the area of the main ritual space. Camp attendees may set up small altars honoring spirits or deities if they feel the need to, and in doing so, share the visual energy of their devotion.

I can't be sure, as this was a personal altar set up by someone else, but given the major Goddess for ritual that week was Tonantzin, and the story was "La Llorona" - who is sometimes associated with Tonantzin - I would assume that the bowl is in honor of Tonantzin, and the statue is a representation of La Llorona (the crying woman.) One version of her story is on the web here.
