Happy Equinox!
From Light to Dark


 
Happy shifting of the seasons to you all.  As the days shorten and the nights lengthen here in the northern hemisphere, we may shift our focus to connecting with Nature on the outer realms to making a deeper contact on the inner realms. 

 
According to Machaelle Small Wright, founder of Perelandra, the solstices and equinoxes are powerful times of development for Nature.  The Fall equinox is actually a time of quiet when the new cycle is 'born'.  It is then ready to take on more order and organization during the Winter Solstice. She says: "we co-creative gardeners can choose to actively participate with nature at these special times. Nature once said to me that nature is powerful beyond belief and humans are powerful beyond belief. But when nature and humans act together, that combined power is intensified a hundredfold."
 
Sandra Ingerman echoes this, saying "This is such a powerful time to travel within to your inner garden. Just listen to some spiritually expansive music and imagine yourself traveling within your body to the garden of life that resides within. This is such a potent time to look at what plants are growing from your words, looping thoughts, and ongoing daydreams. It is a perfect time to pull the plants that are growing deep roots that no longer serve you. And it is a time to plant the seed words, thoughts, and daydreams that you would like to see manifest."
 
Best wishes to our extended Fairy Family during these changing times!

RJ and Anastacia in Seattle
RJ and Anastacia will be in Seattle the weekend of November 11th and 12th offering a workshop on the Double Dragon Ritual.  The Double Dragon Ritual is intended for times of potential crises; it is a time to bring the spiritual forces of Balance and Regeneration into the ceremonial group, to be mediated outwards to the community and the land. Cost is $195 if paid by October 10, $220 after.  Contact Allen Moore at allenmoore913@gmail.com for more information.

 
Shamanic Activism
This has been an intense summer of elemental extremes - air, water, fire and earth have all been making themselves loudly known.  In response, Jan Kinsey and Michelle McKinney have started a Shamanic Activism group with weekly conference calls to help bring balance using skills learned from weather shamanism, 'Medicine for the Earth' and psychopomp.  You can find the group on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/120055208654709/, or contact Jan at proudmountain@outlook.com
It’s not about being in control of weather. It’s about being in relationship with the spirits of weather.  Can the weather spirits or elementals do their work? What’s keeping them from doing their work?   Join us for some fascinating work!

Who We Are
The Fairy & Human Relations Congress is an annual event that attracts about 300 people in the Methow Valley in Washington State.
 
June 21 - 24, 2018
 
The Congress is dedicated to Promoting Communication and Co-Creation with Nature Spirits, Devas and the Faery Realms.
 
This year's theme:
Transformational Gratitude:
Creating the Magic That Is Needed Now
 
The Fairy & Human Relations Congress initially started in the early 1950’s in England with Daphne Charters. The first Congress in the US was held at Skalitude Retreat in 2001. It has been an annual event ever since.
 
Through the years, we have been joined by Peter Tompkins (Secret Life of Plants), Findhorn co-founders Dorothy Maclean and David Spangler, and teachers in the Celtic Faery tradition RJ Stewart, Caitlín Matthews and Orion Foxwood, Yew Shaman Michael Dunning, Dreamwork Shaman Robert Moss, Brook Medicine Eagle and many more.
 
Our presenters also include flower essence specialists, animal and plant communicators, shamanic practitioners and herbalists, wildcrafters, biodynamic farmers, fairy seers, intuitives, geomancers and dowsers, Bards and Druids, and Native American storytellers.
 
Testimonials
"The Congress has given me back my sense of purpose, direction and connection to all things. The atmosphere of gentle kindness provided me with a chance to slow down, shift conciousness and trust again."
      - Sheila
 
"Where do I begin with my praise?  I have taught at many events over the last 7 years and nothing compares with the Congress. I was awed by the the people, the land, the spirits...the love.  So much love!"
       - Michael Dunning
      www.yewshamanism.com
 
 
"The Fairy Congress reminds us in deep and important ways that we share this world with other sentient beings, both seen and unseen. In the midst of global environmental challenges when for our own survival we as human beings are called to rethink our behavior on the earth and renew our partnership with nature, such reminding is essential. The Congress gives an opportunity to participate in envisioning and building a healthier and more holistic world."
       - David Spangler 
 
"The Fairy Congress is not a New Age forum event. It’s about Doing, Joining, Sharing, looking to the future. In a collapsing world economy, Fairy Congress gives us an idea of another way of living, another way of thinking. Some of it comes from ancestral wisdom, some from new human visions of departing from the greed of commercial modernism. Fairy Congress is an Idealist event, a Visionary event, and an event buoyant with hope and friendship."
       - RJ Stewart

"I have been teaching at this fantastic gathering for several years now. It really is the premier gathering on working with the nature spirit realm. Loving, caring, committed and powerful teachers and community. I love you Fairy Congress!!!!!"
      - Orion Foxwood
