Beacons of Light to Guide Our Way
News on the Fairy Congress Webinar  January 15 - 17
It's coming together!  We have a schedule, we have presenters lining up, we have magic in store! We have tried to balance time online with time outdoors in Nature, Circle time, community connection time, and workshop time.
There will be a total of five sessions of three hours each over the weekend.  Each session will be 45 minute Circle, 30 minute Small Group Connection/Discussion, 15 minute Break, 90 minute workshop.
The sessions will be (Pacific Time) 4 to 7pm on Friday, and 9am to noon and 4 to 7pm on Saturday and Sunday.  So there is a nice four hour break in the middle of the day to get outside and practice our skills in connecting with our local Fairy beings.  There will be two workshops offered during each workshop period, they will both be recorded so you can watch later the one you missed that weekend.

As of right now, the presenters include David Spangler, Brooke Medicine Eagle, Jeremy Berg, Marko Pogacnik, and Camilla Blossom.
More details are still coming together, but meanwhile we have other exciting opportunities to connect this Fall!

Revolutionary Magic!  Thursday Sept. 10th 7pm
The first of several Zoom workshops offered by and for the Fairy Congress community, Bramble will be offering Revolutionary Magic on Thursday September 10th from 7 to 9pm. Registration by donation. 
This was one of the workshops that was scheduled for this year's Congress, we are so happy we have the opportunity to experience Bramble's wisdom now! 

“I was an activist for many years and I know that sometimes we need to protest, but I have come to believe that change is more likely to happen by awakening the hearts of the people with visions of what the possibilities are then by statistics of what is wrong. I am tired of trying
to fix bent nails, and have changed my focus to collaborating magically with ancestors, humans, allies, fairies, stars, mycelium, insects, and other beings, to awaken the unknown possibilities.”

Sandra Ingerman: Shamanic Journeying: A Beginner’s Guide (2008)

“In the ethnographic literature, a shaman is defined as a man or a woman who journeys into the invisible realms, the Dreamtime, and the Other World as well as other terms to describe another dimension of reality. In the unseen transcendent realms, there is a wealth of helping and compassionate spirits who volunteer themselves to shamans and the rest of humanity to share guidance about practical details, such as how to live a healthy and empowered life and when and how to perform healing, blessing, and initiation ceremonies. We all have access to these helping and compassionate spirits to guide us.” - Sandra Ingerman: “The Book of Ceremony, Shamanic Wisdom

Each journey circle is a little different, always connecting with our power animals, teaching spirits, nature spirit allies, and/or ancestors that can offer us support and guidance at this time. The beauty of Zoom is that we can do break out rooms, so smaller groups can work together and journey for one another. Feel free to pass this on if you know someone who would like to join. All you need is experience with shamanic journeying.  It’s free!  We hope to see you!

David Spangler and Fiery Hope
David Spangler is one of our communities' most beloved teachers.  One of the Founders of Findhorn in Scotland, he now lives nearby in Washington State where he is involved with the Lorian Organization.  He sends out periodic newsletters called David's Desk.  His most recent newsletter addressed the issue of hope, and how important it is to keep hope alive particularly when it seems most absent. The following is an excerpt from this newsletter, find the full version at
“The author of the utopian novel, Ecotopia, Ernest Callenbach, died in 2011, leaving behind a farewell letter. It discusses the many ecological challenges and other difficulties facing humanity. He then asks the question, “Although we may not be capable of changing history, how can we equip ourselves to survive it?”  His answers include mutual support, teamwork, altruism, working on behalf of the common good, and the “enormously creative” power of collaborative thinking, all things I’ve discussed over the years in these essays.  But the number one survival quality on his list is hope.  Hope makes all the other things possible by opening us to them.

[This] is applicable to where we are now.  It seems to me we are in danger of losing hope, of seeing hope as itself a hopeless emotion, a kind of wishful thinking that denies the reality of the world around us.  And there’s no doubt that people can and do express a naïve hope that does ignore the pain and danger present in our world.

But hopelessness is like a crowded room in which we can’t move our arms but can only shuffle along in lockstep with wherever the press of the crowd pushes us.  Fiery hope is like stepping into a clearer space where we have a chance to think of possibilities and the elbow room to act on them.

Watching the news, I do not lose my hope, but I do see hope under siege, attacked by the circumscribing, limiting energies of anger and fear, hatred and division.  And there’s no question - there’s a lot to be fearful about in today’s world.  There’s a lot to fear, a lot to be angry over.

But then I [read] an article written by Thomas Homer-Dixon, an environmental researcher and author, in which he describes a new book of his that has just been published called Commanding Hope: The Power We Have To Renew a World in Peril.  In the article, these words stood out for me:

“Our capacity and need for hope, as long as we keep that hope honest, is a precious gift, because it encourages us to keep open a space for possibilities, and to use our imagination to create possibilities in that space. That hope thrives on mere possibility is not a weakness but its greatest strength.”

I share this here because the Fairies wish us to remain in the Light of Hope, to share this Light so it can lead us forward to the New Earth that is being born.

Who We Are
Who We Are
The Fairy & Human Relations Congress is an annual event that attracts about 300 people in Washington State.
July 22-25, 2021
The Congress is dedicated to Promoting Communication and Co-Creation with Nature Spirits, Fairies, Devas and Sidhe.
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.
"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

"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
"On my long drive home I thought about the Fairy Congress in particular because.. when I came here last year I only intended to talk with you for an hour and hit the road...however I ended up staying four days till the end and was one of the last cars that left! Reflecting on that on my long drive home it reminded me that at this Congress last year it was because of the over all authenticity, higher frequencies and kindness of the people that really captivated my spirit. I didn’t meet one bad or negative person here and really found acceptance and generous support within your circle. So thank you all again for giving me a great opportunity to get to meet you as relatives"
