SunFest

SunFest is a four day festival celebrating the summer solstice. We host the event on privately owned land near Vernonia, OR called Ffynnon. The land is run using permaculture techniques. We must be gentle to our Mother and be respectful of the land on its own terms.

The Forge and the Well: A Brigid Ritual for Strength and Healing

 

Join us as we channel the energies of Fire, Water, and Ancestral Spirit to remove pain from our lives, energize our spirits, and call upon the power of the Ancestors to fortify ourselves and our communities. Ritual songs will be rehearsed at Courtney Weber’s Friday afternoon class, “Evoking the Goddess Brigid into Ritual.” Can’t make the class? Don’t worry! We’ll run through the songs at the meadow before processing! We are looking for ritual drummers! All drummers who would like to drum during the ritual–please meet at the Dionysus Circle at 2:45 p.m. on Saturday.

Workshops will be held in Dragon Circle this year. Children’s/ Scion’s workshops will still be near Faery Grove.  We have some amazing workshops planned.
