MARCH 17 – 27, 2014.
An enchanted castle in the Northern Lands of Albion, close to the wall built by the Roman Emperor Hadrian–who worshiped his male lover Antinous as a god and built statues to him all over the empire–has been the location for Winter faerie gatherings since 2005. For ten days this lovely castle will become a faerie hogwarts with rambling corridors and mysterious nooks, glittering dining and ball rooms, and roaring hearth fires. All set in a stunning landscape where the air is fresh and the nature spirits are friendly.
In the year 2014 we will gather in March at the Spring Equinox, to make the transition from the earth time of Winter to the air and light of Spring. The watery inner time of Pisces gives way to the active, creative energy of fire as the sun reaches Aries – a chance for reflection as the dark season ends and an opportunity to raise empowering energy us for the time of light ahead. The castle can accommodate up to 100 people, but gathering numbers are usually around 50-60. We can be reached easily – nearest airport is Newcastle, from there it’s a short train journey to Haltwhistle. We are hoping people will come for the whole 10 days if possible, or at least 5 if not, so that the group can build a fabulous solid sacred energy for our own healing and to offer to the world.
Sleeping is in rooms or dorms, 3 to 12 beds. It can be cold (all gatherers are invited to ask the goddess for a fine sunny start to spring) but rooms are heated, log fires are always burning in communal spaces, you should bring thermal undies and fur coats are good too.
Suggested payment rates are £20-£35 per night. No One Turned Away For Lack of Funds. Please give what you can; giving generously enables us to support future events and support those would otherwise not afford to come.
In a collaborative spirit of all who gather we will manifest heart circles, spring ceremonies, fantastic feasts, workshops, nature walks, visits to Hadrian’s wall, a drag wardrobe, a love temple, a smokers temple, dance parties and much more … and to move us into the spring energies: faerie fitness – mind body and soul, nothing will be left out!
