WINTER QUEST 2014

January 17-19, 2014
Presented by Carolina Spirit Quest
Fairy Stone State Park, Stuart, VA
Join Carolina Spirit Quest at the fifth annual - Winter Quest! So many of us have jobs that don't allow us to listen to the cycles of the natural world, particularly in the winter when Nature's message is one of rest and renewal. The purpose of Winter Quest is to listen to the rhythms of Nature and to do quiet reflective and nurturing rituals and activities. This weekend event, like last year's, will follow a pattern similar to that of a Spring Quest - but on a more leisurely pace and scaled back participation. Registration is limited to 32 participants. When the wheel turns to the chilled short days of winter, it is time for introspection once again. This January, we will be continuing our process of looking inwards in the wintertime. The theme for the Winter Quest event is "Our Sacred Community."

HAWKFEST DRUM AND DANCE

February 20-23, 2014
Summerland Festivals, Bonita Springs, FL

Hawkfest is a Drum and Dance Festival put on BY Drummers and Dancers! Started as a small gathering of friends who are dedicated to the joy and fun of dancing and drumming, Hawkfest has become a gathering where dancers and drummers, fire spinners and hoopers gather to share techniques, music, and to expand their knowledge. For the past two years, we have come together creating Magickal and unforgettable experiences! Hawkfest is an Adults ONLY festival someplace where adults come together in a safe place for GROWN UP TIME! We have done this for a few reasons. Not only is this a time for Adult fun, the gathering has areas where Skyclad (full nudity) is permitted. In the past kids have been part of our gathering. The adults who attend want to feel the freedom to be Adults. Most children were not raised in such a free and open culture. Because of this, we prefer that those who come to Hawkfest be 18 years f age and over. In case you haven't figured it out yet, HAWKFEST IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT! Every night transports you into a place where you can dance, drum, spin, hoop, and celebrate until the sun rises! It is a time outside of time where we set aside egos and drum and dance finding the rhythmic ecstasy of our extraordinary lives. Dancers, Fire Spinners and Hoopers come to Hawkfest to experience not only their own heart and soul but the hearts and souls of everyone in the Circle each other and the drummers. You will walk away from Hawkfest a better player, a better dancer, a better hooper, or a better fire spinner!!!

We do this through community rituals, community meals, nightly drumming and dancing around the ritual fire, and other shenanigans promoting a feeling of closeness, unity, spirituality, and just plain fun away from the mundane. As with other festivals, there will be workshops, games, rituals, and drumming and dancing into the night. There will be merchants and an auction of unique items made by our own craftsmen that are unavailable anywhere else. Also, we have nightly fire spinning and are offering fire spinning workshops for those who want to give it a try. Phoenix Festivals, Inc., and the entire Phoenix Phamily would like be bid you "Hail and Welcome." Phoenix Phyre is our spring event. Autumn Meet is our fall event. You will be welcomed into the loving arms of your fellow pagans, let your hair down and be comfortable with the people who think like you.

WOMEN'S GATHERING

May 16-18. 2014
Our Haven, French Lick, IN
The Female Body The Our Haven Women's Gathering was established as a way for the women of the Our Haven Community to come together as women. In current society we are most often separated into small family units. We generally grow up with our mothers and sisters as the only other women in our lives. There are those of us who are lucky enough to also have grandmothers, aunts and sometimes close friends. However, rarely does this amount to community. In reality, our larger culture cultivates rather toxic relationships between women. Society expects us to be competitive and catty toward one another. At Our Haven we are striving to reject these notions. We wish to come together and rebuild what modern society has torn down. At the 2014 Women's Gathering, we will be focusing on the most basic of what makes us women: The Female Body. We will be discussing menstruation, female genitalia, sexuality and transgender, among other subjects. There will be kid's activities for the young ladies in attendance. Also, we will have physical activities for the adult women such as Zumba, Yoga and Belly Dancing. Ladies of all ages who live their daily lives as women are welcome to attend. Our Haven is home to many lifestyles, religions and backgrounds. Come and commune with us! Nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of southern Indiana's countryside is Our Haven, an 175 acre nature sanctuary of beautiful deciduous forests and reclaimed fields for all who wish to come enjoy its clear creeks, natural springs, and secluded areas.

HAWKFEST DRUM AND DANCE

October 2, 2014
Dragon Hills Retreat (near Carrollton, GA)

Hawkfest is a Drum and Dance Festival put on BY Drummers and Dancers! Started as a small gathering of friends who are dedicated to the joy and fun of dancing and drumming, Hawkfest has become a gathering where dancers and drummers, fire spinners and hoopers gather to share techniques, music, and to expand their knowledge. For the past two years, we have come together creating Magickal and unforgettable experiences! Hawkfest is an Adults ONLY festival someplace where adults come together in a safe place for GROWN UP TIME! We have done this for a few reasons. Not only is this a time for Adult fun, the gathering has areas where Skyclad (full nudity) is permitted. In the past kids have been part of our gathering. The adults who attend want to feel the freedom to be Adults. Most children were not raised in such a free and open culture. Because of this, we prefer that those who come to Hawkfest be 18 years of age and over. In case you haven't figured it out yet, HAWKFEST IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT! Every night transports you into a place where you can dance, drum, spin, hoop, and celebrate until the sun rises! It is a time outside of time where we set aside egos and drum and dance finding the rhythmic ecstasy of our extraordinary lives. Dancers, Fire Spinners and Hoopers come to Hawkfest to experience not only their own heart and soul but the hearts and souls of everyone in the Circle each other and the drummers. You will walk away from Hawkfest a better player, a better dancer, a better hooper, or a better fire spinner!!!

GATHERING OF THE TRIBES

October 16-19, 2014
Presented by the Celtic Church of Dynion Mwyn
Cherokee Farms, LaFayette, GA
In March of 1967, Rhuddlwm Gawr and Dynion Mwyn established "The Gathering of the Tribes" (the first Pagan "Gathering of the Tribes" festival recorded) in Western Maryland. In 1978 Dynion Mwyn held the 12th Annual "Gathering of the Tribes", with a National Pagan/Wiccan Leadership conference at Unicoi conference Center near Helen Georgia. It was attended by Ray Buckland, Margot Adler, Selena Fox, and many other national Pagan leaders. This gathering, held at the time of the Summer Solstice, brought together Pagans from many paths and places from all over the United States..In 1991, We held the Gathering and hosted Janet and Stewart Farrar, Otter G'Zell, and several other international Pagan Leaders. In 2007 and 2008 we held the Gathering and hosted Maxine Sanders, Chris Penczak and other national Pagan Authors.
In 2014 the 47th anniversary of the Gathering of the Tribes will again focus on leadership and building pagan community. We are inviting those same leaders, as well as current authors and groups to help us determine what has changed and what has stayed the same in the intervening years. This will help us all determine what are the problems and what are the solutions of the New Paganism. To help us identify these problems and solutions, we will focus on relinking with Nature, building community, establishing leadership training, and working with pagan culture across a diversity of traditions and paths. There will be panel discussions, rituals, workshops, belly dancing, music and great fun.
The 46th Gathering of the Tribes Leadership Conference is asking the question: "What Do We Need from Our Leaders?
