Gaia's Hearth Potluck Dinner

Saturday, April 19, 2008

6:00 PM - 9:00 pm

Providence Unitarian Church
Corner of Benefit & Benevolent Streets

Its a potluck dinner event, so bring a dish to share.This falls on Earth Day, so we are organizing a beach cleanup (location to be announced) for earlier in the day... You don't have to pitch in at the cleanup to come to the event though... Its totally up to you if you want to do both events or one or the other...
We will be offering childcare for the potluck for a $5 fee... That's $5 total, not per child. We just want to help offset the cost of craft supplies.
The most exciting part? The talented Kellianna will be performing after dinner!!! (I'm so excited... I love love love her new cd!)
So this event is a great way to mingle with your fellow pagans, have dinner, celebrate Earth Day, and listen to great music.... And it won't cost you anything to attend!!!
How cool is that?

Pagan Spirit Gathering

Sunday, June 15, 2008

- Sunday June 22nd, 2008

Southeast Ohio

The Pagan Spirit Gathering (PSG) is one of America's oldest and largest Nature Spirituality festivals. Since its inception in 1980, PSG has been bringing together hundreds of people from throughout the United States, plus other countries, to create community, celebrate Summer Solstice, and commune with Nature in a sacred environment. Sponsored by Circle Sanctuary, PSG is open to long-time practitioners as well as newcomers to paths of Wicca, Paganism, Shamanism, Celtic traditions, Native American ways, Ecofeminism, Animism, Nature Mysticism, Pantheism, and related forms of Ecospirituality. PSG is an opportunity for personal renewal, networking, education, and cultural enrichment.

As in past years, PSG's spiritual community will begin emerging as participants arrive on opening day, set up camp, meet and greet others, and create a Pagan Town together which will last the entire week of the Gathering. The Sacred Fire will be lit during the Opening Ritual and will be kept burning throughout the Gathering to symbolize the Solstice Sun and Spirit of the PSG community.

Spirits of the Earth Festival

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

- Sunday July 6th, 2008

5198 Stewardson Rd,
Plympton- Wyoming, Ontario Canada

We are a group of earth centered individuals who come together to study the elements and the endless cycle of life. Spirits of the Earth is a gathering focusing on conservation, preservation, and creating a deeper relationship to divinity.

Our goal is to bring like-minded individuals together to form a sense of community. We welcome all who are of earth-based spirituality and other open-minded individuals to join us in a sacred space where communication of life, love and spirituality is available without fear or prejudice. We form a network to share knowledge of our ways with others.

Spirits of the Earth is a festival creating unity between old friends and an opportunity to meet new ones. We offer access to a wider variety of specialized vendors and holistic practitioners that may not otherwise be readily available.

We teach individuals how to bring spirituality and positivity into their every day lives. We show people how to put aside “sacred time” and teach techniques of meditation to center one’s self with the energies of the earth.

The motto we live by is to "Harm None" resulting in our belief of the three-fold return; this being karma which is the concept that all energies put forth are returned. This is a reminder to act in a positive fashion at all times.

We offer opportunities to learn about astrology which is the study of the Earth, Planets, Stars, Moon, Sun, and their relationship to us. We also offer the studies of “magick” meaning we have control over our lives, showing that if we aren’t satisfied with certain aspects of our lives we can change them through positive actions. Thoughts are things, that is, thoughts generate and release energy and, if repeated with intent can be powerful sources of energy. We can improve our lives and harm none through positive thinking; even our thoughts can be expressions of our spirituality.

One of our most important concepts is (as Scott Cunningham calls it) “Earth Stewardship;” which is caring for our planet. We carry this out by rinsing and reusing bottles; composting; recycling paper, aluminum cans, plastic and glass. This is an act of spirituality, for we are caring for our planet. Similarly, planting a tree; tending gardens; giving gifts of plants to others; refusing to use artificial pesticides; donating to ecological causes; writing letters in support of preserving endangered animals and their environments (forest, wetlands, and other environmentally sensitive areas) are all further expressions of concern and love for our planet.

Forestdance @ Earthlands

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

- Tuesday Sept. 2nd

Earthlands
Petersham, MA

COME DO THE SACRED AROUND THE FIRE
The sacred dynamic fire circle experience is a co-creative, all night, eclectic spiritual ritual in which a safe art and sharing space is developed around a fire. Inside, from around midnight until dawn, energy and awareness is raised and cultivated through drumming, dancing, singing, chanting, and various other forms of human expression. Through the balance of listening, serving one another, and expressing, these layers of that which we have necessarily gathered together tightly to protect ourselves, come down, until a simple and free flowing state of embodied divinity and deep personal freedom rises through us. This culture is very much about reclaiming our own intimacy and our right to experience life to the fullest.

Rowe Camp and Conference Center

The Green Nations are communities of people who love Earth, respect all her beings, and honor the interdependent diversity needed for peaceful, sustainable life. We are herbalists, gardeners, farmers, environmentalists, healthcare providers, spiritual ecologists, and earth stewards. We gather to learn, inspire each other, network for the planet, play, and renew our commitment to live in beauty and walk in harmony on Earth, our partner. Ours is a revolution of the heart, taking action to make the world a better place for life.

We are delighted to again bring the Green Nations Gathering to Rowe, a spiritual center that supports our visions, dreams, and goals. After doing some giant conferences, we’ve found the intimate container that Rowe provides enhances our ability to make deep connections with each other, the plants, and Earth.

Teachers will gather from across the continent to bring you a full schedule of plant walks, plant spirit, herbal, health, and food topics, as well as ceremony, storytelling, an emporium, and lots of fun. There will be an opportunity to interact with a panel of herbalists covering a live case study.

Our time together will begin with an opening circle on Friday afternoon and continue throughout the weekend with three concurrently held classes in each of the six sessions. There will be classes for beginners and experienced practitioners. For those who want even greater depth, there are intensives that last 3 1/2 hours and cost an additional $35. Throughout the gathering, there will be a reverence for all life and its diversity and an emphasis on renewal and sustainability.

Our teachers include: Kate Gilday of Woodland Essence will present a class on Adaptagens to the Rescue: Nourishing Ourselves in Times of Stress and take you on a walk to experience the Peace and Plenty of the Northeastern Woodlands. Susun Weed of the Wise Woman Center will present a class on Elements of Herbalism, another on Harvesting – an Outdoor Plant Family Journey, and an intensive on the Spirit and Practice of the Wise Woman Tradition. Herbalist and author Brigitte Mars will present classes on Ten Reasons to Go Raw and Sacred Psychoactive.

Amanda McQuade Crawford, medical herbalist, will present classes on Gaiacology: Natural Treatments for Women’s Health and Herbal Medicine and Food Allergies, as well as an intensive on Herbs for Longevity. Matthew Wood of Sunnyfield Herb Farm will present classes on Herbs for a Healthy Heart and Doctrine of Signatures: Intuitive Herbal Practice, and an intensive on The Language of Nature: Plant and Animal Medicines. Chris Marano of Clear Path Herbals will present classes on Herbs with Bad Reputations but Big Medicine and Geometry of Medicine: Understanding Human Health through Universal Patterns in Nature. Pam Montgomery of Partner Earth Education Center will present classes on Plant Communication and Plant Spirit Healing. Mark Carlin of Sweetwater Sanctuary will lead a sweat lodge ceremony. Kellianna, a musician, will lead an Equinox Fire Circle. We are pleased to have Abenaki storyteller Marge Bruchac with us for an evening presentation on Saturday.
