Kala Chutroi!


“Dionysos in his coming and going recalls us to the origins of the sacred, those animal powers that both manifest our finest energies and threaten to devastate all that we cherish. If you let him into your life, under appropriately ritualized circumstances, you will be deeply disturbed but also deeply enlivened, touched by the sources of good and evil and yet sanely returned to the casual comedy of civil society. If you refuse him entry he will invade…. His rituals will involve madness, and resistance to them will involve even more.” – Dudley Young, Origins of the Sacred: The Ecstasies of Love and War
