Hosts: Stasia Weston/ Aevalle Galicia; Belladonna Laveau / Belladonna Yarrowroot; Phoenix Silverstar; Dee BlissWitch.  Wooston-Steen Theological Seminary

Sacred Caldron houses the virtual campus for Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary. WSTS is an environmentally conscious institution that works to reduce our carbon footprint by drastically reducing the amount of travel necessary to attend and teach at our seminary. We provide a visually rich online learning experience using the Second Life virtual reality platform. From the comfort of their homes, our students are able to connect and learn with other students from around the world in a graphically enticing interactive environment where their teachers give lectures, offer demonstrations, and answer questions in real time.

Our immersive experience will include a walk-through interactive ritual which is season-based. The experience has been designed and constructed by our Junior class as part of their studies.

  • Visitors will become immersed in the “story” or deep mythology related to a season/holiday.

Accessibility: We transcribe the spoken word during activities into text as the event occurs. For the interactive walkthrough, the elements give out notecards with directions as well as “speak” in local text.
