The Gathering 24th Anniversary, Saturday December 12th

We are honored to be part of this collective and to altar the SF Sound Factory once again for this monumental event.

Screen Shot 2015-12-07 at 7.39.29 PM

The Gathering parties were born in San Francisco, CA in 1991 when 4 small SF Rave parties came together for one event. Malachy (Come-Unity), Tony (Pieces), Kenny & Harry (Destiny), and Martin (Eklypz) joined as one to bring the scene together for a massive party. At the first meeting a Hopi Indian passage was recited:

For those who stay here on Grandmother Earth,

They will totally gain the light of the great light wheel.

There will be one humanity, one planet composed of all the different ways of dancing in complete harmony in the great gathering together circle.

In 1991 the seeds will be planted….

We hope to see you on the dance floor!

Happy Thanksgiving ~ A Gratitude Blessing

ThanksGiving

As we move toward the last portion of the year, it comes the time where we put our focus on giving thanks. Hopefully you are someone who counts your blessings on a daily basis. There are so many blessings to show gratitude. Life is a blessing! And there is much meaning and purpose to life when we sit with our gratitude on a daily basis. With our gratitude comes a sense of humility that allows us to appreciate and not take our lives for granted. It can be easy to fall out of position sometimes with one small swoop of the ego claiming hurts and wrong doings, but with a clear mind and open heart we can accept what life has gifted us, regain focus and Be Thankful.

Let’s get grounded….

Take a deep breath in, hold it… 1 – 2 – 3

Breath Out.

Take another deep breath, hold it… 1 – 2 – 3

Breath Out.

Take one more deep breath, hold it… 1 – 2 – 3

Breath Out.

Now fill your heart with the feeling of gratitude. Allow it to open. See a bright green spinning light over it. You should start to feel your heart get warm. If you need to think of someone or something you are eternally grateful for.

”May the sun bring you energy by day,

May the moon softly restore you by night,

May the rain wash away your worries,

May the breeze blow new strength into your being.

May you walk gently through the world

and know its beauty all the days of your life.” [apache blessing]

Thank you! We are so very grateful for your presence. Thank you for taking the time to read our Living Fae post. Thank you for your comments. Thank you for allowing us to share our thoughts and words with you. Thank you for being YOU! You are an amazing person. You are a blessing to this world. A blessing to us. So thank you, thank you, thank you.

May you have a bountiful and beautiful Thanksgiving!

Love, light and faerie dust✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫

 

October Moons

1-a-sign-of-change-under-a-full-moon-rising-ric-nagualero

New Moon is Tuesday, October 13th

There is light in the dark phase of the new moon. The October New Moon falls in Libra and has a sense of excited anticipation for a positive change in your relationships. The last tentacles of drama quickly lose its energetic grip to allow for a complete transformation through firey passions and desires. This is the final shift from the powers of the super moon in September. The new moon dances with bubbling romance, success and happiness.

Full Moon is Tuesday, October 27th at 5:05am PST

For the October Full Moon we move into Taurus. This full moon is heightened by the planet Neptune, bringing in more white light energy, spiritual protection and increased awareness and unconditional love to your relationships. In addition to what Neptune brings, a triple conjunction of Venus, Mars and Jupiter, further amplify and strengthen happiness and success in love and passionate desires actualizing in your life.

For more details on dates and times of the moon in your city check out http://www.moongiant.com/moonphases/october/2015/

HARVEST MOON: Super Moon Lunar Eclipse ~ Sunday September 27th

It’s the Harvest Moon this evening, and its a beautiful Blood Moon in Aires at that. This is the 4th and final eclipse in the lunar tetrad. That’s four total eclipses of the moon, spaced at six lunar months (full moons) apart.

The moon rises at 7pm PST and the lunar eclipse goes from 7:11 to 8:23pm.

Mystic Mamma tells us, “It’s all energy. We’re swimming in energetic streams. We are connected to the movements of the cosmos and are all woven together in this intricate and multidimensional tapestry that is Life. There is a lot of charge in the air which could be wiping some of us out! Energy has been building toward this BLOODMOON~ LUNAR ECLIPSE in Aries, which is the final of the “rare” tetrad configuration that will culminate on September 27th.

Passions will be stirring so we must take deep breaths, connect with the grounding energy of the Earth, and bring patience and love to our interactions/relationships. We can transmute the fire and rise to see a new dawn with an open and accepting heart.”

As you observe the full moon tonight see yourself releasing old, negative energy patterns so you can create space to bring in new lessons and growth. Surrender and allow for a transformation to let go of behavior patterns that may have caused you to react to life with anger. In those moments you felt alone, awaken and realize you are not. Allow yourself to move into a place of cooperation and balance with those around you. You will transmuting your lower powers into your highest power.

What are your triggers for anger? Acknowledge. Embrace. Love. Release. Transform.

Living Fae will be honoring the sacred energies of this time with our Sunset Family and Friends at the Season Closer at Stafford Lake. May the Harvest Moon bestow many blessings upon you. Love, light and faerie dust!¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.*¨`*.✫*¨*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.*¨`*.✫

FAERIE RING WORKSHOPS & ACTIVITIES

MEDITATION

Daily Morning Guided Meditation [James Brown]: A 30-minute mediation aligned with the Faerie Ring theme of the day.

  • Friday – TRANSFORM – The meditation will help people align with the source of those steering impulses that are meant to guide us along the path of life. The more we are aligned with these impulses that more fully we can evolve, to better fulfill our role in the evolution of all things.
  • Saturday – ILLUMINATE – The meditation will help people connect to the light that shines from within so that we radiate with the full brilliance that is our birthright.
  • Sunday – RESTORE – This meditation will allow people to cultivate a deep and powerful state of restfulness and to connect to the source of energy and intelligence from which all our best ideas arise, as does the energy needed to bring them to life.

Flow Mediation [James Brown]: An hour-long workshop in Flow Meditation, a practice in which we learn to get out of the way and allow the mind to settle. The workshops will be a mix of lecture and eyes-closed practice. Each workshop will be self-standing, but there is great benefit in taking them back-to-back.

The Journey Home: Finding the Shangri-La Within [Pixie Pam & Tara Samiy]: This restorative meditation workshop involves a shamanic journey, guided by the beat of the drum, to explore the Shangri-la within. Shangri-la is an oasis for the soul. In this workshop we learn how we can become Shangri-la and share it in every moment.

Come practice this concept on your mat in this gentle one-hour vinyasa flow class, moderation of movement and stillness, of exertion and surrender, of awareness and meditation. A very short physical practice with extended savasana at the end to help calm the mind before a weekend of excitement!

Restorative Yoga [Zalia Aliriza]: This all-level, 90-min restorative yoga class is designed to heal and revitalize bringing light and stability to the body and mind. Concentrating on a handful of nurturing poses with long holds to help unwind, we’ll work on centering breath and energy movement through the body, opening hips, hamstrings and heart. Appropriate for those seeking to stretch, relax and invigorate.

Kundalini Yoga [Isabel Cali]: Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. This 90-minute kriya (set of exercises) will include powerful breath work along with movement, chanting and deep relaxation, to carefully raise our kundalini energy, the creative force which lies at the base of the spine. This practice clears blockages in our physical, emotional and mental bodies rapidly, leaving space for the new things to come. Kundalini yoga is unique to other styles, come with an open mind and be ready for a natural high on Sunday morning. 

SOUND HEALING

Sacred Sound Healing [Danny Goldberg]: A one-hour restorative sacred sound healing with gongs, singing bowls and chimes to guide you into a deep meditative state.

“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 ShangriLa, the mystical utopia of the Himalayas. ShangriLa 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 ShangriLa, 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 ShangriLa.” ~ Sunset Sound System
