Beltane Blessings

It’s that magickal time of year where our hopes and dreams bloom into action, Beltane! Beltane runs deep in our hearts. We absolutely love the creative spirit and energy it ignites and practicing all its beautiful ancient traditions. Flower head wreaths, flower baskets, flower meditations, maypoles, sacred fires, beautiful altars and ritual ceremony. Faerie magick is alive and bursting!

Faeries: RayRay, Lisa, Mei, Anne, Melanie, Lacey, Gina at Imbolc 2020

This year, our Beltane will be much different than others, as we are gathering in sacred ritual virtually. It’s a new creative way of making it happen and we are going for it!  We are very excited to gather together for our virtual flowery sabbat, although we certainly miss gathering together for it in real life.

Beltane is the midpoint between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice, to honor and bless the abundance of our Earth! At Beltane, Earth energies are strong and active; life is bursting.

The word ‘Beltane’ originates from the Celtic God ‘Bel’, meaning ‘the bright one’ and the Gaelic word ‘teine’ meaning fire. Together they make ‘Bright Fire’, or ‘Goodly Fire’ and traditionally bonfires were lit to honor the Sun and encourage the support of Bel and the Sun’s light to nurture and protect the community.

Here’s our Beltane Blessing for you:

May you long time sun shine upon you

All love surround you

And the pure light within you

Guide your way on

We hope you have a magical weekend full of festive flowery fun!

Blessed Be!

Winter Solstice Blessings

It’s Yule! Celebration, family, joy, generosity are bountiful, but as we enter into the Winter Solstice, we also come to place of great stillness. It’s a sacred and powerful transition point in the year that holds the energy of self-reflection, regeneration, and renewal. It’s the honoring of the Moon Goddess giving birth to the flicking inner light, the spiritual sun.

This is a time where a quiet energy, guides our way to experience the power of stillness; the deep connection to source and a glimpse of what it means to unite the finite with the infinite. It is the experience of the space between thoughts that we seek to find.

In the stillness, you become a magnet which attracts the information that guides your soul. As you deepen your connection, you will move into a constant state of awareness and serenity in life; living and thriving in your higher consciousness.

Make magic this Winter Solstice, may you be blessed with a deepening of your own stillness and connection to your spiritual sun.

Happy Yule! Have a Blessed and Magical Winter Solstice.

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

Sunset Campout is a 3-Day art and music camping experience in Belden, California nestled at the heart of the majestic Feather River Canyon. The Campout is an annual festival produced by San Francisco based Sunset Sound System.

Sunset Sound System was first established by Bay Area DJ, Galen, in 1994 when he started by setting up a generator and speakers at a park in Berkeley, California every Sunday.

Over the years, through tireless dedication and the combined blood, sweat and tears of partners like DJ’s Solar and J-Bird, and a crew of imaginative collaborative souls, Sunset developed into an inspiring collective of individuals who come together to dance as a unified global soul family. Today, after 25 years of legendary local and international productions, Sunset Sound System still continues with its incredible boat and outdoor parties. This year Sunset Campout also celebrates its 10-Year Anniversary in Belden Town.

Know for its amazing line-up of DJs and musicians, Sunset Campout also presents an array of talented visual artists creating interactive installations, visual stimuli, live painting, murals, and eye catching circus performances, as well as world-renowned healers, speakers, energy workers and practitioners who facilitate workshops with a variety of transformative, creative and healing offerings.

Autumn Equinox and Full Moon Meditation with Radha Sangeet Kaur

 

Fall, the time of bounty and harvesting, will be here soon, and it’s the perfect time to go inward, burn off and clear your way to the unlimited energy reserve within you. When we tap into that source of power we  flourish, bloom and prosper. What intentions and seeds for yourself did you plant in the Spring? Now is the time to reap your bountiful harvest. 

Join Radha Sangeet Kaur and Living Fae for a powerful Kundalini Yoga Meditation Workshop to harvest and cultivate our prosperity. In Kundalini Yoga there are meditations and mantras that we can work with to activate this state within ourselves. In this event we will gather in the beautiful sacred Buddha Temple at the San Francisco Buddhist center for Intention Setting, Kundalini Yoga Meditations & Mantras, and a Crystal Bowl & Essential Oil Infused Savasana.

“The best way to explain prosperity is to say it is like a rosebud when it flowers and opens up, and shares its fragrance. That’s the moment, which lasts a few days, when a rose flower is prosperous. When a man or woman is prosperous, it is the fragrance of security, grace, depth, character and truthfulness that a person can share. Like a candle emits light, a human emits prosperity.

…You must know you have an unlimited reserve of energy. Once you invoke your energy, there is nothing that is small in you. All the environments start flying towards you. It’s beautiful.” ~ Yogi Bhajan 12/26/97, 3HO.org
(Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Prosperity is Like the Fragrance of a Rose)
