Rites of Spring 36  2014

We gather once again to celebrate the sacred Earth and the turning of the seasons in the mountains of western Massachusetts. Together we will weave the web of community Ancient traditions and new thought come together in workshops and conversation. Young people pass from childhood with the community's blessing. The sacred fires burn, drums echo the rhythms of life and dancers join the sparks flying toward the darkened sky. Lasting friendships form and families grow as we come together in our learning, our music, our ritual and our joy. 

The EarthSpirit Community and Tamelin Productions invite you to join us for the thirty-sixth annual Rites of Spring -- a gathering open to all who celebrate the sacred nature of the Earth. At the end of May, every year since 1979, our community has re-emerged as 500 participants from all over the United States and abroad come together to live and learn, work and play in a setting apart from our everyday lives. 

Rites of Spring offers a week filled with over a hundred workshops, rituals and performances.  As our circle fully opens on Wednesday and grows still more on Friday, together we form a vibrant and joyful living community that expands outward with us when we leave. 

When we go, we carry home new perceptions about each other and the world, as well as personal commitments to making a difference in the world around us based on the strength of our spiritual connection with our community and with all of life. We know that we build our future on this sacred Earth together. 

In the two days before the full gathering begins, we hold the Village Builders' Assembly.  We invite up to 100 people who have attended Rites of Spring at least once before to be part of this special time devoted to creating a beautiful and magical space for our week together.  Please follow the link to Village Builders' Assembly for more information.

Heartland Pagan Gathering 2014

Location: Camp Gaea, McLouth Kansas

Over 27 years ago, a small group of visionary pagans deliberated, planned and brought forth the first pagan festival to be held in the Kansas City area, and it has grown to become one of the largest pagan festivals in the entire country. Owned and cared for by Earth Rising, Incorporated, Gaea's 368 quiet acres hold some 1,000 to 1,300 pagans each memorial weekend. Beginning with Opening Ritual on Thursday evening and continuing through the Memorial Day Closing Ritual, Heartland Pagan Festival offers well-known pagan authors and performers on an up-close and personal basis to curious and interested seekers of education and entertainment. Heartland Pagan Festival always strives to offer something of interest for everyone. But Heartland is about much more than entertainment and getting your books autographed. Each year, in addition to our featured guests' presentations, our attendees offer an amazing range of workshops and rituals designed to educate, enlighten and encourage understanding and acceptance of other paths and beliefs.
