Ceremony Words by Melanie Dawn

Start with taking three deep breaths to ground, center and connect with the elements.

Breath 1….

Breath 2….

Breath 3….

Everyone face the East,  feel your feet firmly planted in the ground. Stretch your arms way up in the air and take a deep breath in, hold it and vibrate the sound  “AUM”.

Calling forth the Spirit Animals of the Mountains and Air, powers of knowledge, wisdom and imagination.

I bring the blessings of the Air.

Let the wind lift you up, into the sky.

Fly amongst the clouds, climb mountains high.

Tell your story, share wisdom from travels afar.

Live your dream and shoot for the stars!

Everyone turn to face the South, put your hands on your Belly and take a deep breath in and vibrate the sound of the belly “VAM”.

Calling forth the Phoenix of the Fire. Rise up, powers of creativity, passion and desire.

I bring the blessings of the Fire.

Transform yourself and spark the flame.

Celebrate life, be wild, untamed.

Dance! Be free! Explore your passions.

Then unleash it, in the wildest fashion!

Turn and face the West with your hands on your Heart. Take a deep breath in, and vibrate the sound “YAM”

Calling forth the Mother Goddess of the Water elementals to vibrate the powers of unconditional love, appreciation and intuition.

I bring the blessings of the Water.

Listen closely to the rushing, Feather River flow.

Feel the love that we’ve come to know.

Be drenched in its joy, and appreciation for you.

Then follow your heart, in all that you do!

Turn and face the North with hands facing down towards the Earth. Take a deep breath, and vibrate the sound “LAM”.

Calling forth the Faeries and elementals of Earth. Powers of prosperity, sustainability, and nature magic.

I bring the blessings of the Earth.

See nature’s beauty, connect with its grounding support.

Hear the drumming of her big beating heart.

Protect it, with your best intention.

And show you care deeply, for nature’s perfections.

Put your hands in prayer position with your thumbs and forefingers touching your breast bone. Take a deep breath in and vibrate the sound “OM.”

We are Living Fae. Calling forth Spirit divine, knowledge of higher consciousness, ecstasy and bliss.

Spread your wings, and shine your light.

Love flows through you, all day and night.

Dance among the moonbeams, feel the sun’s rays.

Then follow your Will, and lead the Way.

 

Faerie Bali’s Blessing for Earth…

The earth is good to me

And so I thank the earth

For giving me the things I need

The sun and the rain and the apple seeds

The earth is good to me!

And So It Is!

After much envisioning, planning and organization we are excited to see Belden Town, CA transform once again into Sunset Campout, for  another magical weekend in the woods.  Join us on July 22 – 24th for our 2016 celebration to gather and dance outside in the sunshine and beneath the moonlit starry sky along the enchanting Feather River. This year we are abstractly weaving in alchemic mystical elements into our thought processes and creations, as we honor the nomadic ritual of generous hospitality from the ancient near east.

ALTARS

Sunset Campout Main Altar 2015

Sunset Campout Main Altar 2015

We began designing altars for Sunset Campout back in 2002. The Main Altar, located on the side of the main dancefloor, is there as a graceful reminder to respect and to serve as a sacred space for blessings, meditation, reflection and to spark connection with that which is greater than us. This years altar is inspired by a Jain communal ritual in which a stone sculpture is anointed over the course of four days. Devotees pour various offering substances in the form of blessings and prayers over the figure. The Sunset Campout main altar will be adorned with a stone Ganesh, remover of obstacles, and campout attendees are invited to participate by pouring their blessings and prayers over the sculpture. Offerings in the form of sacred herbs and flowers will be provided.

THE FAERIE RING

The Sunset Campout Faerie Ring is an interactive heart centered communal environment designed to relax, breathe, reconnect and experience a little Sunset Campout magic. Throughout the years, the area has evolved into a space hosting yoga, meditation, sound healing, creative conscious workshops, ceremony and more. As creators and hosts of the Faerie Ring, altars and workshops, if we aren’t on the dancefloor, come find us in the Faerie Ring, on the lawn across from the lodge, for a wide range of conscious workshops and activities.

YOGA

11060283_888145357925867_871476366864395865_n-1

Feather River Flow [Alexandra Sargent]: Start your sunset campout experience with this intermediate level hatha/ vinyasa based sequence. This class will be focused on calming the mind from all the excitement for the weekend, and engaging the body through a strengthening and awakening flow. Prior yoga experience recommended, simple twists and gentle backbends included. Bringing a block or towel is recommended.

Yoga Mind, Spirit, Body [Alexandra Sargent]: Yoga is a technique for arriving in the present moment. The very moment you focus your attention back into your body and breathe, you begin to experience a deep sense of stillness. Influenced from the teachings of vini-yoga, this gentle sequence will involve less physical strength, and more focus on simple movements and breath control. A block or towel is recommended to bring with you.

Fun Flow [Zalia Aliriza]: Wake up easy and get moving in this one hour, all levels, flow class, that will guarantee you’ll be ready to hit the rest of the day with an open heart & a big smile. An invigorating combination of light workout and deep stretch, you’ll be encouraged to explore a variety of postures, link breath and movement as you stretch and awaken.

Mystic Vinyasa Flow [Erika van Gemeren]: We will journey into our hearts and move our bodies from this space so that we will feel a deeper connection to our own selves and all the beings on this planet. We’ve all had mystical experiences, a sense that one cannot adequately describe the richness of the experience, we’ve had feelings of deja vu or feelings like you’ve know someone in prior lives, that’s because we really have been with each other infinite amounts of times. Our planet is awakening and we are the ones they have been waiting for. Let’s do this for all!

Yoga Eye Flow [Kim Abels]: Yogi Eye Flow is a Vinyasa Flow Class that creates the synergy of internal focus and release of mind. Using the movements and continuous focus of breath, you will find your own flow. Maintaining strength and balance will come naturally with each transition and hold of poses. Music intended to take you outside of your mind to allow no judgement of the practice. Yogi Eye Flow will leave you feeling back to your self with some fresh skin, restore everything underneath the flesh & capture your true spirit.

Gentle Yoga [Cara Smith]:  75 minutes of a gentle yoga flow, a combination of Hatha yoga with the idea of restoration in mind. You’ll leave the class feeling both relaxed and energized.

TAROT READINGS

Ida Feshangchi is a tarot reader and Reiki practitioner with 12 years of experience in the metaphysical sciences and healing arts. She will be available for readings Friday-Sunday from 1-5 pm. Come by and sign up for a reading.

Restorative Yoga and Sound Healing, Sundays

This workshop is offered again March 13th, 2016. For a complete listing of Sound Healing workshops please go to Danny Goldberg’s event page.

On Sunday, December 13th Sound Healer and Yoga Instructor Ambika Devi Daniella Cotreau and Sound Healer Danny Goldberg host their Restorative Yoga, Sound Healing and The Heart workshop at Breathe in Los Gatos, CA.

Screen Shot 2015-12-07 at 8.33.45 PM

Ambika Devi Daniella (L) and Danny Goldberg (R)

This is a very powerful, transformative and relaxing 3 hour class to restore and invoke a deeper connection to the heart.

The first 2 hours of the class are a Restorative Yoga led by Amibka Devi Daniella. During the workshop you’ll be anointed with Ambika Daniella’s special Essential Oil blends for the heart and intuition, and be guided with her yogic wisdom, while Danny Goldberg plays the gongs and Tibetan bowls to help raise your vibration and remove blockages.

For the last hour, you’ll lie restful and experience Danny Goldberg’s Sound Immersion with gongs, chimes and Tibetan Bowls. The bowls can be placed on your body to amplify the experience. Ambika Daniella also sings with mantra, toning and playing her harmonium.

The workshop closes with a group chanting to invoke the heart energy.

The holidays can bring us great joy and blessings, but they can sometimes also prove to be stressful and unhappy. Whether you are joyful like Cindy Lou Who this holiday season or feeling stressed and unhappy (especially if you are stressed and unhappy) like the Grinch, I recommend treating yourself and experiencing this workshop to expand your heart.

I’ve been blessed to have experienced this workshop more than once and I more than highly recommend it. I think its my favorite workshop of all time. Both Ambika Devi Daniella and Danny Goldberg are masters at this work, and Ambika Devi Daniella is the embodiment of a true Living Fae.

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!

Sunset Campout 2015 Faerie Ring Activities & Conscious Leaders

Sunset Campout Faerie Ring

Sunset Campout Faerie Ring

The Sunset Campout is fast approaching! Below is a detailed list of workshops, activities and information on each of our workshop leaders. For a detailed schedule of workshops please see the Sunset Campout website. See you in Belden, CA July 17 – 19th!

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.

YOGA 

Sunrise & Shine [Alexandra Sargent]: Come arrive in Belden, through your body, mind, and spirit. A one hour gentle hatha/ vinyasa flow, simple twists to awaken and activate your body, with a guided meditation at the end. Light yoga experience recommended.

Sunset & Flow [Alexandra Sargent]: One of the practices in the utopia of Shangri-la was moderation. 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!

Igniting Your Fire [Dave Larot]: This 90-minute yoga class focuses on the 3rd chakra (manipura) and is based around the core. It includes some arm balancing poses and of course Kalabati breath work.

Heart of the Warrior [Dave Larot]: This one-hour yoga class focuses on the 4th Chakra (anahata). It will include a lot of heart openers with some shoulder work. Come experience a back bendy and hip opening session with some twists.

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.
