On Meeting Death
Tonight, Pluto, with the crescent moon as my witness,
I welcome you as my lover.
If you have come to break down my door,
See, I have opened it,
And wait here for you at its threshold.
If you have come to tear off my clothes,
I have flung them aside already,
And stand naked, shivering gladly.
If you have come to hurl me into the abyss,
Watch now, as I release all false supports, one by one,
And fall toward you in ecstasy.
Hear this, Pluto, lord of transformative fire:
What you have come to take from me, I offer you.

Finalizing your registration
Cost– We have three tiers of pricing, a pre-approved discounted price of $495 for those who need it, a standard price $695, and a supporting registration for those who can afford it $850. Further scholarships are available, by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. It is of a high value to us, that to the greatest extent possible, money is NOT a barrier to participation. If money is the reason you might not come, PLEASE ask for further scholarship–we have it in our plans to extend this money!
The price includes all lodging, food, and program, (it is higher than MROP’s in part because the cohort of new elders is constrained to 30 men.)
Payments can be submitted by credit card as part of the registration process or by mailing a check to:
