Our favorite annual 3 days of art, music, and camping event, Sunset Campout, is quickly approaching and we are fervently planning enhancements and an evolution to the Sunset Campout Faerie Ring and Workshops. Sunset Campout takes place in Belden Town, CA along the breathtaking Feather River July 17 – 19th, 2015.
We are over the moon in anticipation for another utopian weekend in the woods with our Sunset family and friends, and in our 13th year designing altars and sacred space for Sunset.
As with previous years we began planning early on with our Sunset Sound System organizers, Galen and Solar, with a desire to inspire and enlighten the crew and festival goers. That early collaborative planning gave birth to this year’s Sunset Campout theme.
“Starting in 2013 we began to create an inspirational theme for the Sunset Campout as a way to unify all our creative crews and festival goers in a way that reflects the mood of our current collective. The theme is not meant to be only a literal guide but more intended to trigger mental imagery or a feeling one can draw upon for inspiration that will connect us all for our amazing weekend in the woods. This year’s theme is Shangri–La, the mystical utopia of the Himalayas. Shangri–La represents both a magical hidden place and an era of enlightened consciousness. In the 1933 novel, The Lost Horizon, it’s described as an earthly paradise, where people are permanently happy, have a sense of purpose and are almost immortal. It’s a place filled with enchantment and wonder that lies deep within the hearts of those who live there and those who seek to find it. For many of our attendees and contributors alike, the Sunset Campout has been described as an almost utopian setting. This is our own Shangri–La, nestled in a hidden valley, protected from the outside world, for one weekend together. This year we invite you to be inspired to recreate and embody your version, no matter how abstract, of Shangri–La.” ~ Sunset Sound System
With the careful and thoughtful planning of our organizers comes this year’s stellar music line up! Magda, Alex Bowman, Eddie C, Thugfucker, Gavin Russom, Aurora Hall, Magic Touch, Monty Luke, Carlos Souffront, Solar, Galen, J-Bird and many, many, many more.

In a steady effort to evolve and grow the Faerie Ring, Sunset is providing the festival with more yoga, meditation, workshops and performances. This year the Faerie Ring will play host to Shaman Durek who is taking a break from his international tour to share his Transformative Healing work with us. Vibe Shaman, Danny Goldberg, is performing a special restorative Sacred Sound Healing on Sunday. Vedic Meditation facilitator, James Brown, is leading Morning and Evening Meditations throughout the weekend. The Epic Human, Danny Picard, is joining us for a workshop on Dream Manifestation, and our Shamanic sister, Pixie Pam, is returning to join Living Fae to gift The Faerie Rites and for another magical Journey Home workshop; in addition to a plethora of many more activities with our Faerie Ring Creative Conscious Leaders.

FAERIE RING SPOTLIGHT

Durek has also studied Reiki and learned Hawaiian forms of healing from a Maori healer.
Danny Goldberg’s Sacred Sound Healing weaves the restorative vibrations of singing bowls, gongs & chimes to create a blanket of healing sounds. The vibrations of these instruments enable us to journey within & center. The sound provides a channel for release, opening & transformation, tuning our vibrational frequency.
