The tribe has been hard at work designing a festival around this year’s
theme; “Seducing the Muse”.
Our special guests will help attendees find their muses. This year we have
internationally known environmental sculptor, performance and video
artist, Cherie Sampson. Anne Marie Forrester, well-known local artist and
longtime member of the Pagan community, will be there to help you tap into
your inner creativity. Author Veronica Cummer is returning this year.
White Deer will be there with his drums as well as his dancer wife,
Violette Rose. Visit our website to see their bios. There will also be
other wonderful workshops during the week.
This year’s rituals will inspire the muses. Here’s the proposed ritual
Saturday: “Welcoming the Wise Child” – this ritual will engage the part of
us which is knowing yet playful.
Sunday: “Finding your Muse” – Search the camp for your sources of
Monday: “Honoring the Oaks” this guest ritual from Owl’s crew will honor
nature and the land.
Tuesday: “Kid’s Comedy & Tragedy” – this ritual drama will deal with
inclusiveness and miscommunication.
Wednesday: “Tribal Hunt” – this ritual is an annual tradition of intense
Thursday: a guest ritual from Violet Rose and White Deer.
Friday: “Rangoli” – another annual tradition of making designs filled with
our prayers, and then dancing them into the Earth.
Saturday: a guest ritual from Anne Marie Forrester & Veronica Cummer
Sunday: “Closing Pot-Latch Ritual” – throughout the week, everyone will be
encouraged to make a blessing pouch, and during this ritual the pouches
will be exchanged and given away.
Of course the entertainers all have a wonderful relationship with their
muses; Murphey’s Midnight Rounders, Rumgumption, Hugin the Bard, and Magic
Mama. This will definitely be a good year to also just hang around the
Bardic Circle. Of course we will be continuing the Not So Talented Talent
Show hosted by Sister Mirtha Reverence!
There will also be multi-tiered workshops every day to inspire your muses.
There will be drumming and dancing every night. By the end of this
festival, every attendee will have had many opportunities to connect with
their creative energies.
