As one of the long time clients, the University of Utah booked SLPS for their fall Crimson Nights events, run by the Union Programming Council (UPC) in the Student Union Building. This has been an annual/semi-annual event for SLPS for a number of years, and we are always happy to return and give free readings to students during the party. SLPS gives a discounted hourly rate, but the non stop lines and benefits from helping students is well worth the hours on a Friday night. Muad’Dib reading many hands from 7-1am.

SLPS enjoyed a fun evening reading free Celtic tarot for the University of Utah students at their bi-annual Crimson Nights event on Friday, March 25, 2016 from 10-2am. The line for readings didn’t end till about 1:30 am, and a few trickled in till 2. Some even asked for palm readings. Many of the students had never had a reading, which is usually the case. Though SLPS has been reading at Crimson Nights for three years, very few are repeat patrons.

SLPS enjoys doing free tarot for students, and the organization had such an opportunity at the Spring 2016 Plazafest at the University of Utah! The event was held in the Student Union Ballroom from 10-2pm on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at the University of Utah.

Many students stopped by for reading at the lunch hour. Muad’Dib used his Deviant Moon tarot and Woman Between the Wolves used her Robin Wood deck. A few students even changed their minds after readings, saying they believed it was Satanic/demonic, but afterwards were made aware how accurate, how simple, and how demon free it is! SLPS hope all those who had readings have a great semester!

SLPS had a great time reading free tarot for the students at the Fall Crimson Nights on Friday, October 23, 2015. Themed out for “Halloween Nightmare”, everyone was dressed in various costumes. We were placed with Kim’s Creatures in the Student Union Den. Woman Between the Wolves, Muad’Dib, and Shy Fox brought their decks and the Samhain table cloth. Muad’Dib and WBTW had a special Halloween Tarot by Karin Lee they used for the themed event. Shy Fox used his standard Wildwood tarot by John Matthews.

“We had an endless line like usual. Many students, about 100 I’d say came in the 3 hour period from 10pm to 1am.  They usually put us with Kim’s Creatures at the events, as this is the 3rd time the Pagans have been paired with the creatures together, which we love animals so it’s a natural fit” said Shy Fox.

Everyone was worn out by the end of the night! “It’s always a tone of work, but the 10th reading I’m reading to go, but I’m a trooper and know I’m there to help students” said Woman Between the Wolves.

SLPS thanks the Union Programming Council (UPC) and looks forward to reading again at the spring 2016 Crimson Nights!

SLPS had a wonderful time reading tarot at the U of U Fall Plazafest Wednesday, August 26, 2015. Always a fun time, the students flock to the table for free readings and advice, wanting to know how their semesters are going to go. Muad’Dib and Woman Between the Wolves had a table next to the Chinese Christian Church and another Christian group who were recruiting. It rained slightly, but the clouds passed and the rain didn’t bother anyone. Serving the students is a fantastic way to perform community outreach and service, helping them set their lives in order so they can perform their best with their studies.

SLPS had a great time at the University of Utah Vegas Night doing palm reading for students. SLPS was invited to read palms for two hours, 6-8pm on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 at the Student Union Building. These fun activities allow the members of SLPS to gain practice in those areas of divination and provide a free spiritual service for the students.

SLPS had a wonderful time reading tarot and palms at the U of U Crimson Nights, themed out for Mardi Gras on Friday, February 21, 2015. Going from 9pm to midnight, SLPS read the tarot next to Kim’s Cold-Blooded Creatures… which included spiders and snakes! President Muad’Dib even carried a fire legged tarantula on his arm! The lines where out the door as usual, a big success for SLPS, who enjoys doing the events for students.

SLPS had a great Plazafest at the University of Utah Student Union! President Muad’Dib read tarot for free with his Deviant Moon Tarot deck for about 20 people on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 at the U’s Spring Plazafest, which is the U’s version of “club rush” for the first week of each semester. Most people who get their cards read are first timers, or had only had them done once or so in the past. The free tarot is a great way to connect with new people and to help others spiritually by showing them a snapshot of their lives at that moment.

The 14th annual LGBT Gay-la and Silent Auction was held on October 2, 2014 at  6pm at the Wagner Jewish Community Center at the University of Utah. SLPS donated a $75 Tarot gift certificate as part of the auction which sold for $10. We here at SLPS are glad to help the Silent Auction as the money raised from both events goes to the scholarship and emergency fund. Each year several students receive approximately $2,000 each in scholarships from the LGBT Resource Center. The reserve one time emergency fund is avaliabe to students in exceptional financial need and difficulty and is approximate $500 each. SLPS looks forward to donating again at the 2015 Gay-la and Silent Auction.

SLPS read the Tarot for Crimson Nights at the University of Utah on Friday, August 29, 2014 from 9pm-Midnight. Crimson Nights, put on by the Union Programming Council (UPC) really enjoyed the SLPS tarot the last time and invited us again to read. Students lined up immediately and the line stayed full the entire night, with several students stating they waited 45 minutes to an hour for a reading (and that’s with three readers!). People continued to line up, even after the sign was taken down. SLPS hopes to do it again at the next Crimson Nights!

SLPS was asked to read the tarot at the U’s Crimson Nights Friday, April 11, 2014 which was circus themed. SLPS was put in with the reptiles and read for free for over three hours to many different students. Although the Daily Utah Chronicle reported on Monday, April 14, 2014 that Crimson Nights was losing steaming, the tarot readings were still popular.

The Society exhibit “A Look at Paganism: Beliefs and Culture of the Neopagan Community” that was held at the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah ran from January 17- March 16, 2014. It was an enormous success! All the hard work paid off. 8 people came together donating items or approving of their use for display in the wall cases at the library. It was headed, organized, and proposed to the exhibition committee by President Muad’Dib. All the explanatory cards were also written by President Muad’Dib. Sections included (As pictured in level one) music, art, literature, crafts, (as pictured in level 2) films, Pagan deities, Magical Arts and Sciences (top), Jewelry (bottom), ritual items and elementals.

Louise Poulton of the exhibition committee and Rare Book Division of Special Collections said the application was “very well written and put together.” A few of the members of the committee said they were very impressed with the display and that it received only positive feedback. Many students and guests stopped to look at the different displays and contemplate Paganism. It was one of the highest trafficked exhibitions to date!

The reserve desk on level two, which is next door to the display cases also reported many people stopping to look at the displays. SLPS is so happy that it succeed that there is a plan in the works to have the exhibition go to other schools and universities to teach people about Paganism. Currently Salt Lake Community College Library and the library at Utah Valley University are the best places.  Here are photos from the exhibition.

President Muad’Dib and SLPS adviser Woman Between the Wolves had a great time tabling at Plazafest II this past week on Wednesday, January 8, 2014 from 11am-2pm in the University of Utah’s Student Union Ballroom. With snow falling outside, the usual free tarot helped attract interested persons and snow dodgers to the group and get acquainted with a few pagans. Some of the passersby that stopped for a reading had had positive experiences with SLPS free tarot from previous semesters and were return patrons! A few brochures flew off the table and SLPS hopes to see those folks at the next Witches’ Tea!

Muad’Dib, Woman Between the Wolves, and Piggy brought their tarot decks for a few hours, and over the load music in the Union Ballroom at the Student Union Building at the University of Utah, read the card for about 30 people.

Thanks to everyone for all the hard work accomplished in March! April has been a busy month, but isn’t holding anyone back!

KUTE Radio Interview

On Friday, March 18, 2011, President Muad’Dib was asked to appear on our very own 1620 AM University radio K-UTE.  President Muad’Dib was asked to explain and talk about the U of U Pagan Society, its goals, what it does, ambitions, history, current projects, membership and he was even invited to give a blessing on the campus!

Here is a little what he said, “The U of  U Pagan Society is a group of students who have reached out to include the community. We currently have seventy members and many monthly activities going on such as crafting classes, classes and rituals.” One of the hosts asked him at that point “What is a ritual?” He explained “A ritual can be a number of things.  For me it means a structured and repetitious ceremony that I can do again and again the same way, or feel free to change it.  For me, I incorporate different parts from different religions like Druidry, Shamanism and Wicca. A ritual for me is a way to connect with deity, ancestors, spirits and the universe.  Really it can be seen as a form of prayer or worship.”

When asked about community and student involvement, President Muad’Dib commented, “We are trying to educate and make everyone aware through experience.  We advertise classes and activities from other groups so that people who are living far away and can’t make it, can know that there are activities going on near them.”

Finally President Muad’Dib gave a simple but elegant blessing over the campus “May there be peace in your heart and success on your midterms this spring break, with lots of relaxing time on vacation. So mote it be.”
