The dates have changed; mark your calendars! Great Circle overlaps with the last three days.

As queer-affiliated people of diverse identities, we come together to throw off the shackles of homophobia, sexism, gender programming, transphobia, racism, classism, lookism, and all other forms of internal and external oppression. —Nomenus Seeds of Unity

We sacrifice regarding ourselves and our community as unworthy and disposable, and we actively create a culture of belonging.“—2016 Samhain Sacrifice

“Come out for the gathering, it’ll be cute.”—Stew, like yesterday

Let’s share our experiences of marginalization and privilege in ways that make our relationships and communities stronger. Let’s dismantle hierarchies of oppression and heal personal and ancestral trauma using our Faerie subject-SUBJECT superpowers of radical vulnerability and loving acceptance.

Pendulum offers a focused, intimate gathering container for this work. With Nomenus Great Circle happening at the end of the gathering, it’s an opportunity to meet in person as the kind of community we want to be.  

THERE’S A SCHEDULE!  It’s just tentative, but faeries made it by talking to each other.

Samhain is Coming Oct 26-Nov 3

 

Wolf Creek Samhain 2016 Call

For so many of us in the community, this year has been especially difficult.  We have lost heroes and celebrities that paved the way for us.  Many have lost friends, family, loved ones, and community.   The political climate has been especially harsh for many, mixed with rapid gentrification, violence,displacement, and police brutality.   Intolerance and fear have been wide spread.  

This Samhain we join together as a community to process our grief, let go of what is toxic to us, acknowledge our fears and our own mortality, recognize the gifts we have been given, and support each other as we wave goodbye to summer and enter into the dark half of the year.  

Samhain marks the end of the harvest and begins a time of decay, introspection, and intuition.  We gather by the fire to light our way through the darkness, and to protect and cleanse.   The veil between worlds is thin, allowing supernatural beings, spirits, and those past to take their places beside us.  We invite our ancestors to join us as our table, in our music, by our fire and in our moments of ecstasy, joy and sorrow.   It is a time to tell stories of those who have passed before us.  It is a time for divination and magic, and to look forward to the year to come.

Then hear this call, to Samhain at Wolf Creek. Come celebrate with your community, past and present, come to be nourished, and to nourish others. Bring with you, your intention. What do you bring to that purging fire? What do you bring to greater table? What are you ready to let go of for good, what are you taking with you, into the winter?  

We hope to see YOU there! Welcome HOMO!
