Fox’s Rune-Cast: 31Oct16

Wealth is a comfort to everyone, Need is narrow in the chest. The field is wrought with frost. The torch burns brightest where noble folk gather, for the darkness of night never rests. Hold tight your kith and Kin, for mother’s protection you are in.

#Uruz – Shows the growth of wisdom from within. The creative life force driving up from the #Mimir’s well and then down the branches of Yggdrassil.
#Kenaz – Crafting knowledge into action, a primal initiation inside the mound.

From Magick to Divine: SOTEF 2016 was a Blast!

One full nights sleep under my belt, now where to begin?13775830_1110423849029050_9006861599548354412_n

Now that my friends was an incredible week of magick, healing, empowerment, love, laughter and community.  One harmonious week filled with uplifting conversations that fuelled our creativity, productivity, expression and vitality. My heart is about to burst with love and gratitude. My energetic body has increased in size and frequency.

Fox and I thank each and every one of you for making the Spirits of the Earth what it is today.  Each of you has left your mark on our hearts and on the legacy that is Spirit of the Earth.  We only hope that the sacred space we dreamed about and manifested has shown you the positive side of life.  One where your level of enthusiasm is high, you feel that opportunities are endless and that anything is possible.

A special thanks to our performers Scott Brunelle, Rose Cora Perry, Doghouse Rose, Kate Channer Band, Sharon Knight & Winter.  Our presenters Becca, Charlene, Deb, Donna, Fallon, Gita, Kimi, Lindorm, Sarah, Tabi, and Zibby.  None of this would be possible without our incredible full time volunteers, Diana and Jessica for greeting all of our attendees with smiles, Rick for holding the space and creating warmth within and without, Kimi for ensuring that bathroom breaks were as enjoyable as possible, Britt for teaching our littles, and Philos for diving in with both feet and helping out where even you were needed.  Fox deserves a huge kudos for dealing first hand with my crazy and putting up with my ‘unique’ ways of bringing my visions into fruition. I have to extend recognition to Becca and Deb, who although the have been on staff in the past, were not officially on staff this year, they never left my side, and were there to assist, offer a hug, and pull together some organic magick right when it was needed.  I love you my spirit sisters more that I could ever say, and I am humbled by your love, trust and loyalty. Special mention to Kris who’s help in the kitchen and clearing the feast was an incredible gift that I am so grateful for.  Finally a shout-out to the park rangers who were amazingly open-minded and supportive…even offering the golf cart for trucking gear from the revel fire. P.S. You looked great spinning the poi 😉

Congratulations to our 2016 bardic winners Josh who is mastering the hula hoop at such a young age and Rebecca for creating an intriguing story on the fly that kept us intrigued and sharing in laughter.  Special mention to our bardic runner-ups Ben and Lindorm, bravo!

As we transition back into our daily routines, our memories may shift into daydreams of our week together.  Remember to live in the present moment, capturing the beauty of the moment and understand that there is no happier time then now.  You have that energy within you.  When you feel you might start to disconnect, pick up your stones that we charged all week long, and reignite your spirit, love, and power within.

We look forward to the next time our paths cross…whether at one of our drum circles, bonfires, weekend campouts, feast of the dead, open rituals, or next year’s festival.  Stay tuned to the website and the Spirits of the Earth Productions facebook page. Be the first to know about upcoming events, stay in touch with our community or checkout our weekly divinations. Until then the love we shared and the memories we made will fill our hearts.

Brightest of Blessings,

Entertainment: Sharon Knight

SLIDER-SharonKnight16Sharon Knight and her longtime collaborator Winter are nationally touring musicians in the Mythic-Celtic vein.  Their penchant for combining fierce an gutsy bravado with ethereal beauty, a hearty dose of fantastical lyrics, and an obvious love of storytelling has inspired their own style, “Neofolk Romantique”.  They often sound less Celtic and more “Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates.”  This suits them fine.

The music of Sharon Knight combines a love of antiquity and romance with an affinity for the haunting and melancholy, adds a hearty dash of feistiness, and reminds us that we can all see the world through the eyes of enchantment.

Check out their music Here.

You can catch this amazing performance at the Spirits of the Earth Festival on Saturday night.

Entertainment: Kate Channer

SLIDER-KateChanner16Kate Channer Band delivers an authentic, polished pop/rock sound. For almost a decade, Kate (lead singer and guitar) and Monica aka Moxy (drums) have been putting their own spice on cover tunes as well as composing originals. After an impromptu jam session with Adam (keyboards) one evening six years ago in the basement, they knew the three of them were a perfect fit. After having many talented musicians come and go from the band which has gone through many name changes, Ryan (bass) has completed the package. A year later we have added lead guitar by Mark and backup vocals by Mandy!

The band comes in many forms, sometimes only a solo with Kate in the limelight, 3 piece and other times a full band. With the talent and experience the band possess along with a commanding stage presence and a simple love of performing together, Kate Channer Band produce a musical experience that transcends the sum of their respective talents into a musical experience with broad appeal.

Entertainment: Rose Cora Perry & The Truth Untold

Rose has three visions she hopes to achieve as an artist: to inspire, to provoke thought, and to relate! She has been a performer since age four, and writer since age seven, and CEO of Record Label at 15. Rose Cora Perry is the former frontwoman of major label signed act Anti-Hero and has performed at some of the world’s most renowned music festivals. Bringing audiences of over 500,000 to tears with her emotional sound and sincere performances, Perry has been crowned a well-respected industry pro within Canada’s music landscape. In line with her efforts, in 2011, she was invited to attend the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles as a honourary special guest artist.

She’s graced the covers of magazines, achieved “Top 100” radio singles, conducted numerous guest lectures, served as a Voting Committee Member for the Jack Richardson Music Awards and was elected to represent the “voice of the independent musician” in a three-month expose for Canadian Musician.

2016 marks the triumphant return of Perry’s musical efforts with the highly anticipated worldwide release of her sophomore solo album, Onto the Floor. In conjunction with the album’s release, Perry has formed a powerhouse trio, The Truth Untold featuring the exceptional local talents of Jeremy Sieberer on Backing Vocals/Bass (Partners in Health) and Tyler Randall on Drums (Blind Mag/Swerve).

Check out their music Here.

Rose Cora Perry and the Truth Untold bring you raw emotion, real experience, and melody-driven alternative rock. You can catch their performance at the Spirits of the Earth Festival on Friday evening.

Entertainment: Doghouse Rose

SLIDER-DoghouseRose16In two short years, Doghouse Rose has driven the rebel country sound many thousands of miles down the dusty road.  Known for their captivating and engaging stage show, they don’t sit still for long.  They’ve ventured across Canada and Europe several times over, touring in support of their debut, self-titled album, which charted on college radio for the better part of a year and earned a 2014 Jack Richardson Music Award. Playing every stage and venue they could reach, from music festivals to maximum-security state prisons, these natural entertainers find a home wherever they land.
Doghouse Rose is currently releasing their second full length album “Bourbon & Gasoline” and saddling up for another crazy year touring.  Doghouse Rose is especially excited to embark on their fourth European tour this June and venturing into the USA for the fist time.  Lost luggage, smashed windshields, crashing on couches, and a train pulling away with their gear still aboard haven’t slowed them down. They are more stoked than ever to hit the road, and show no mercy.

Check our their music Here!

You can catch this amazing performance at the Spirits of the Earth Festival on Thursday night.

Entertainment: Tara Rice

SLIDER-TaraRice16Weaving 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.
