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.

Tales of Love and Darkness [Shadow Dream Theatre]: An experimental mix of shadowplay, digital video and electronic music takes as its point of departure a masterpiece of modernist theater. A slapstick comedy performance, staged as Beckett’s “Act Without Words”, where the main character finds him(her)self thrown into an unfamiliar desert world.  As he/she explores her new, empty and harsh, reality, first trying in vain to escape, then trying to figure out how to survive in it, even stranger things begin to occur: some invisible force appears to hand some familiar objects to the protagonist that might be just the things he/she needs to survive and be happy or not…

Sunday Night Movies: Wind down, get cozy and chill out to a collection of independent, counter culture and classic films specially selected by the Sunset Campout crew.

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.

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 July 17 – 19th: Faerie Ring with Living Fae

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.

Sunset Campout ~ Feather River

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.

10476582_700447696695635_3355486526608762737_o

Faerie Ring Faerie Temple

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.

Walkway to Dance Magic

Walkway to Dance Magic

“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

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.

The Spring Equinox & the Sunset Season Opener

Photo by Robin Russel

Photo by Robin Russel

The Spring Equinox is a time for renewal, sewing seeds and fertility. It is the day when feminine and masculine energies unite in sacred union. We celebrate the change of seasons, the balance of light and dark, yin and yang, and the return of new life.

Rituals you can perform for the Spring Equinox include symbolically planting seeds for the year, or conceiving new ideas to nurture through the season. A simple spring ritual you can do, apart from spring cleaning, is to bless some seeds with your ideas and plant them in a garden or pot.

It’s also common to use this time to free yourself from things or qualities holding you back. Since this is a day of balanced energies, it is a good time to perform workings where you are incorporating energies that are balanced. If you put your focus on one energy, make sure you balance it with a counterpart to raise the charge.

Along with setting personal intension and performing ritual, Spring Equinox is also a beautiful time of year to raise your vibration through celebration. In San Francisco, its time for us to commune, reconnect and dance in the park once again with our Sunset family and friends.

We are thoroughly blessed and have so much gratitude to our Sunset Sound System organizers, Galen and Solar, for allowing us to be of service and design the altars for another season of Sunset.

This year the Sunset Opener is honoring longtime Sunseter, DJ Nick (Nicole) Mason. Nick DJ’d with Sunset in the park and on the Sunset Boat Parties back in the day.

  • Event: Sunset Season Opener
  • Date: Sunday, March 22nd, 2015
  • Location: Stafford Lake, Novato, CA
  • Info: Please be sure to read updates and details on Facebook for more information. There are very important parking info updates.

“On March 20th, 1994 the first Sunset party happened in celebration of the Spring Equinox in Berkeley Marina, California. Overlooking the Golden Gate and the San Francisco skyline we danced into the evening. It’s this transformative time when the sun sets and we move from light to dark that has fueled 2 decades of friends and family coming together to bring close to the weekend and positivity to the week ahead. Drawing from the the spirit of sound system culture from Jamaica and UK, Sunset has produced over 150 free outdoor dance parties from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Whether it be a renegade beach party or a permitted event in the park the communal vibe has remained unchanged.” ~ Sunset Sound System

The Gathering 23 year anniversary will take place at The Factory, 525 Harrison Street in San Francisco, on Saturday December 13th, 10pm to 6am. The very first Gathering was held in this same location way back in 1991 when it was an old church in disrepair. The event was underground-style with no permits, and we raved until nine in the morning. The energy created helped launch over two decades of top-notch parties.

This will be the very last Gathering at this location as there are plans in 2015 to tear down the facility in order to build high-rise condos – another sign of our ever-changing city.

The Gathering is one of the foundation parties of the San Francisco and U.S. rave scene. At the onset we started as four smaller parties coming together to throw a big community event and bring the scenes together. It has a solid reputation for great music, a positive environment, and friendly loving people.

The Gathering is so very proud to present our 23 year anniversary to help to bring the families together so people can see old friends and hear familiar tunes, experience current music, and meet new people in a positive loving environment.
