Come and begin your journey with a story. We will be telling the greatest story in the world- YOURS! Ritual will have a play, story time and be the first step into welcoming you into the land and starting you on the journey of writing your story! Ritual will meet between the parking area and vendors row. Feel free to wear costumes, bring chairs and your favorite notebook to document your journey! Be prepared to have a good time. Suggested meditation is about your beginning. If today was the start of your story, how would you like it to go? What things could you do to help your story progress? What help do you need, what can you focus on? How can you manifest your needs? What is going to be your story?.
(Fri, 9:00 pm)
Join us as we walk (stagger) from camp to camp with our cups, receiving libations and yummy treats! All are welcome to participate, including kids (must be 21+ to receive adult beverages - bring your ID!). Costumes are encouraged! Camps: Decorate your camp, have some sort of light or something to denote that you are "open for business," and have things to offer both adults and children, such as chocolates, candy, snacks, lemonade for minors, wine, margaritas, etc. Trick-or-Treaters: Bring your own cup (and ID) and a bag for goodies, and bring a flashlight and/or wear something lighted so you can find your way and others can see you (it's dark out there!). What if you want to do BOTH - offer treats and walk around? Simple! Take turns with camp-mates, or just walk around with the group until you get to your camp, then offer your own goodies to the trick-or-treaters. 1 hour. Meet at the main fire at the top of the hill.

Spiritual Permaculture - by Brian Tant
Permaculture is a landscape design methodology that applies principles from nature and takes into account such things as how indigenous people used the land; how water, fire and wind flow through the land; and how soil, water, vegetation, buildings habitats can be managed in a stable and enduring way. How does this mesh with Pagan spiritual practices? Bring an open mind and find out! 2 hours.

Hit It On the 1/Drum Circles - by Krys
Fire provides the center for our community to gather around. Heartbeats provide the rhythm and our breath and body move energy. Music, storytelling, laughter and crying can all happen in one night. How do we create a space for this to happen? Why do we gather? What do we want from it and what do we bring to it? Let's talk about it. Let's breathe and move together. Let's all learn to "hit it on the 1" and set ourselves up for a successful drum circle later in the evening. Bring yourself, a friend, a chair, an instrument (hint: feet and hands count), an open heart and open mind. Water and snacks would be good too. We're going to be together for a minute and you might get thirsty or hungry and it would be great if everyone stuck together for the whole class. And remember, sharing is caring. 2 hours
(Sat, 2:00 pm)

Ye Ol' Pagan Sing-Along - by Trillium

We had so much fun at Moondance, we decided to do it again! No special skills are required, just a willingness to join in. I will have song sheets with some pagan favourites that we can learn and sing, but please feel free to bring your favourite pagan song to share as well. Depending on how confident we're feeling, we may even attempt some rounds and/or two-part harmonies. 1.5 hours.

(Sat, 7:30 pm) MAIN RITUAL - by Trillium
(Sat, 9:00 pm)
Hookah Lounge/Open Mic - Hosted by Beth W.
A chill night full of sharing talents, shisha, and laughter! This is a participatory event; please help by bringing something! Items needed: Hookahs, shisha, coals, tips; blankets, pillows, and sheets (they can be old, but please wash them prior); tarps or plastic for under blankets; small tables/stands; dangly decorations and tapestries. Volunteers to help with setup and cleanup needed also! Guidelines: If you bring a hookah, please be willing to share. If you don't have one, make sure you are respectful of others' property, and ASK before assuming someone does want to share. If you have children or pets, please keep a close eye on them, as there will be hot coals around, and we would hate to see someone get hurt. Performers: you can perform anything! 2 hours, in the pavilion.
(Sat, 10:00 pm) DRUM CIRCLE
(Sun, 9:00 am) GIVE-AWAY
The Give Away will act as our closing ceremony. Please bring something that is special to you, or has brought something good to you, that you are now ready to pass on to someone else. This gift doesn't have to be something physical; it can be an offer of help or service. Once something is given away, all strings to that gift are broken; the gift is given with no expectations. Each person will take a turn to talk about their item and its meaning, then place it on the blanket. Once all items are laid down, if you see something that speaks to you, and no one else wants it, you may take it. 30 minutes.
