Fall Equinox 2018 presents:


Thursday, September 20 - Sunday, September 23, 2018

Come and participate in a four day festival of learning, healing, and craft. We will journey through the Teachings of Aradia to discover the truth about the structures that keep us tied to systems of oppression, and how to remove those chains. Daily rituals, workshops, community events, vendors, and kids activities provided in a lush forest setting. We encourage you to come for the full four days. 

Ignite your inner spark of divinity as we descend upon the dark turn of the wheel at the Autumn Equinox

Festival Overview:

Thursday, September 20, 2018

  • Opening Ritual: “Moonshadow”
  • Stone Soup at the Hearth

Circle ‘round as we invoke the Watchtowers for protection, and watch our Lady of the Night eclipse the Lord of the Light, conceiving the Beautiful Pilgrim - Aradia. We will gather in community after the ritual around the hearth for Stone Soup and create a feast for all to help us release the binds of scarcity. Aradia will be born in the night, gather her followers and initiate them with her Teachings, which will be imparted to you beginning the next morning…

Friday, September 21, 2018

  • Teachings of Aradia
  • Egeria’s Rite of Dedication
  • Tantric Temple Ritual

You will journey through the Inner Teachings of self-empathy, nonviolent communication, trauma information, guided meditation, mindfulness practice, and more. In the evening, Egeria, goddess of Sacred Springs, will lead those who choose to join her in a Rite of Dedication. And at night, the Tantric Temple will be opened for an intimate ritual of healing.

Saturday, September 22, 2018

  • Teachings of Aradia continue
  • Main Ritual: “Festival of Torches”

Journey through the Outer Teachings of herbal knowledge and wildcrafting, ancestral survival skills, permaculture, conflict resolution, and conscious consumerism. In the evening, gather round to ignite your inner spark of divinity as we walk silently through the forest, torches in hand, and circle around a recreation of the Temple of Diana at Lake Nemi. There you will be guided through a deep meditation to the ancient Temple, where Aradia received her epiphany of equality, and to teach the pagan peasants how to be free from slavery.

Sunday, September 23, 2018

  • Closing Ritual: “The Spirit of Aradia”

As we descend into the darkness of the wheel of the year, we gather together once more. After journeying through the Teachings, Aradia will reveal to you the greatest mystery of all…
