Phaedra Bonewits has put out a healing request for her husband, Isaac Bonewits (author of Real Magic). Isaac has been fighting colon cancer for quite some time now, and has undergone several rounds of chemotherapy. Unfortunately, he has progressed to the point where he is just not strong enourgh to survive another round of chemo. His doctor has told them that Isaac needs a miracle.
Therefore, Phaedra would like the magical community to kick in the magic and do a "rolling thunder" healing ritual on the night of the full moon, May 27th at 9pm.
A "rolling thunder" ritual, for those who are not ever participated in one, creates an effect like a rolling thunderstorm. The base principle of how to create the effect is well known to ceremonial magicians; quite simply, you do the ritual at 9 pm based on your local time zone. Therefore, the east coast does it at 9 o'clock Eastern; central does it at 9 Central; 9 for those in the Mountain time zone; and yes, 9 o'clock local time for those in the Pacific time zone. The energies roll from one time zone to another.
As for what healing and magical techniques are used, Phaedra does not care. Her only other request, outside of it being done at 9 pm local time is that you use the following chant to link the energies raised: "Isaac's tumors fade away. Thirty more years with Phae."
