Entertainment: Tara Rice

Weaving a god’s eye. S’mores over a fire on a brisk autumn night. Tara Rice, Toronto-based vocalist, songwriter and

guitarist, conjures gothic romanticism between layers of spirited storytelling. Though the majority of Rice’s latest EP, Panorama, was written, recorded and performed in her Bloor Street apartment, the mood of this alternative folk-rock album transcends the concrete city vibe.

The songs, along with Tara’s multifaceted, distinctive voice, sweep and shape-shift through genres and influences (a bit of PJ Harvey grunge here, some Sandy Denny folk there). By times the songs summon psychedelic pastoral vistas, and at other times conjure crisp, cool, dark forests. Tara Rice’s music leads the listener into an evocative and welcoming world that possesses a modern mythical perspective wholly its own.

Check out her sound Here.

You can catch this amazing performance at the Spirits of the Earth Festival on Friday evening.

Spirits of the Earth 2018

We have confirmed our 2018 dates!!!

11-15 JULY 2018

Last year we focused on finding our inner spark and the Flame Within. This years theme is RISE: Resonate Internally and Shine Externally.    We will find the parts of us we value the most; those that make us unique.  We will then learn how we can share those skills with our tribe…creating a powerful foundation of strength, loyalty and honour.

We encourage folks to arrive on Wednesday evening so we can begin our journey first thing the following morning.  We will begin by preparing our temporary village and catching up around the fire, and sharing stories of our adventures since we last gathered. Thursday is the new moon and we will utilize that energy to embrace our truths, and rejoice in our authentic selves as our personal resonance synchronizes with our tribe. Friday the 13th we will shift our focus to magickal workings, divination and spirit connection; inclusive of raising the Freya pole at OakHaven.  Saturday will be a celebration of our tribe and our sacred space as we prepare for an night of feasting, celebration, revelry, honoring and gift giving.

Registration is OPEN!

Add it to your calendars folks. We’ll dance with the spirits, and revel in the energies once again!

DRUM CIRCLE: “Tribal breath fueled by the primal heat. Ancient rhythm carried by the vessels chosen. Sun drenched bodies illuminated by the flames of the fire. Voicing the melody of the Mother” ~ Lupa Bardy (quoted with permission)

We invite you to revel with us in a drum circle. These are great for releasing the stresses of everyday life, or for attuning yourself to the natural rhythms of the earth. Great for all experience levels. Instruments are not required. Children are welcome. Drumming, dancing, singing, and chanting.
