10 Things You Don’t Want to Miss at the Spirits of the Earth

2016 PreReg 600x315

 

  1. COMMUNITY
    Whether you are looking at creating deeper connections with your friends, experiencing quality time with  family, or meeting new folks that just get you. You are sure to experience first hand a sense of community and make lasting connections along the way.

    “Community – meaning for me ‘nurturing human connection’ — is our survival. We humans wither outside of community. It isn’t a luxury, a nice thing; community is essential to our well being. Appreciating that community is essential to human well being calls us to a particular kind of courage: walking with our fear of exclusion in order to stand up for inclusion.” ~ Frances Moore Lappe

  2. CONNECTION
    It’s easy to take for granted the importance of green spaces in our lives. It has been proven that taking time to reconnect with nature enhances your self-esteem, reduces stress, enhances personal performance, and improves a sense of well-being.  It also contributes to healthy, active living both physically and emotionally. Green spaces are gathering places that create close-knit communities… so come hug a tree, and join our family.

  3. ACCEPTANCE
    Belonging to a group was most likely helpful for our ancestors, after all their survival probably depended on it. For some reason, in our modern world we think it’s quantity over quality. But as we gain life experience, we recognize the importance of having friends who are authentic and genuine – people who love, respect and support us. Acceptance starts with ourselves. We understand who we are, where our strengths lie, we know what we want, and are comfortable with our place in this world. Lets share that amazing feeling with other attendees, explore our inner selves for a new-found confidence, and embrace our true natures as we increase our sense of empowerment! There is no judgement at Spirits of the Earth.  Our moto is that we all have our strengths, but only when we stand together will we be stronger. Let’s lift each other up, so the entire world can see our majesty.

  4. ENTERTAINMENT
    Music has incredible power.  It can alter our moods, help us focus, offers positive effects on pain management, boost immunity and increase physical performance.  What I find most fascinating is the ability to create an emotional bookmark in our lives.  Have you ever heard a song on the radio, and suddenly are flooded with memories so strong you feel like you have been transported back in time. Beneath a canopy of magick you will witness the songs of inspiration, passion, excitement, and awakening of spirit. As your body sways, and your heart opens to the sound of North America’s most talented eclectic musicians.

    “Music is the Medicine of the Mind”

  5. RE-ENERGIZE
    With the hustle and bustle of modern life, we sometimes feel we are pulled in a million different directions at once, like blowing the fluff off a matured dandelion. Reducing stress in your everyday life is vital for maintaining your overall health, as it can improve your mood, boost immune function, promote longevity and allow you to be more productive. Take this time to ground/release that which no longer serves you, and recharge your batteries with the ultimate energy source….by following your roots back to nature!
  6. EXPERIENCE
    To ‘experience’ is to be affected by or gain knowledge through involvement in or exposure to an event. At Spirits of the Earth you will experience feelings of acceptance, compassion, love, tolerance and understanding.  By the end of the week you will feel renewed, energetic, and happy . You will be able & willing to take action; to pursue whatever it is you want to attain and achieve.
  7. LEARN
    We have made it our mission to help people become even more independent and self-sufficient.  Its this feeling of self-sufficiency that empowers those within our community to give back, sharing their knowledge and experiences.  When you have a strong foundation beneath you, it provides the perfect opportunity for giving. Join in on this unique opportunity to learn from our communities passionate leaders.
    Great leaders are like the best conductors – they reach beyond the notes to reach the magic in the players.
  8. FOOD
    It is hard work to transform our minds and create positive change in our lives.  In an effort to create overall balance in our wellbeing we invite you to partake of our incredibly delicious and healthy meals that fuel your body, as you fuel your mind. We also host our Community Feast on the Friday night which is open to all attendees!
  9. TREASURES
    Have you been on a quest to find that perfect unique addition to your altar?  A colorful one-of-a-kind piece of clothing to add to your festival wardrobe? Perhaps a personalized oil-blend made just for you by a skilled aroma therapist?  Maybe you are not seeking anything in particular, but all of a sudden you are called to something that resonates with you.  We encourage you to embark on a treasure hunt with our local creative artisans located in our Merchant Alley to find that rare gem.
  10. REVEL BONFIRES
    Come and be surrounded by drummers, percussionists, dancers, and magick makers, of all ages. Imagine laying in the middle of the forest, where stags roam free, a roaring revel fire as your only light, the beating of the primal drums, and swaying silhouettes of dancing bodies encircling the fire. The smell of the dew, and the magickal essence of fireflies as we submerse ourselves in everything that is mother earth. The heat of the fire warms our skin, as it fuels our spirit within. You can expect to be part of this nightly phenomenon, as we revel in our diversity and allow our authentic selves to radiate.

“Set a fire down in your soul, and seek those who fan your flames”

Crafty Magick Making: Part II & May-24 Campout

Date: 15-18 May 2015
Time: 6pm (arrivals)
Cost: $20/family (up to 4)
What to Bring: Camping gear, drums, BYOB/Crafty Supplies, anything else you would like to dabble with.

May 24 is here and camping season has officially started. We welcome you to join us for a weekend of craftiness from prop building, body painting, drumming, dancing, organic impromptu ritual, fire breathing and other fun activities to prepare for the upcoming fest season.

CRAFTY MAGICK MAKING: In 2007, the Spirits of the Earth family introduced our concept of bringing ritual to the revel. This was greeted with enthusiasm, and liberation as everyone encircled the fire awe-inspired. We feel that instead of the festival hosting a ritual or two, that we would transform the entire festival into a ritual all its own. This year we would like to raise the bar a little higher, and open the doors wide for every single member of our community to become an active participant, utilizing their own unique talents. This has lead us to designate every single attendee to an Elemental Tribe for the week. You will have an opportunity to connect to that particular element deep within yourself, and connect with other members of our community. This will build a strong foundation. Inspire each other as you fuel the light within yourself. I would like to work on building a new effigy for this years event.

Feel free to bring whatever you are working on, new things you would like to learn, or something you saw on Pinterest that you would like to try your hand at… in a fun, supportive and empowering environment. Or just hang out with us, give some feedback and help others with their projects.

Come together as COMMUNITY, as we prepare for the upcoming Spirits of the Earth Festival. Crafting, Magic Making, Camaraderie, and much Merry-Making.
