Regrettably, projected spread of the COVID-19 virus indicates that it is simply not safe to plan a group gathering for late June, so I have been forced to cancel Midsummer Dawn 2020. I will refund the registration fees of those who have signed up over the next few days.
I’m really sad about this, but public safety takes precedence over fun. Stay safe, everyone.
Midsummer Dawn is a low-tech Pagan gathering for those of us who miss events like Ancient Ways. We’ll do a couple of (non-theist) rituals in the evenings, but mostly focus on socializing and building community. Two nights under the magnificent stars in the exquisite Sugarloaf Ridge State Park in Sonoma County, California! There is a waterfall we can hike to, and simply beautiful land to enjoy.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A SUNDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT. Saturday was not available.
This is a camping event, so bring your gear, and plan to cook for yourself. We will have a potluck shared dinner on the first night (Sunday). Grocery shopping is available in Santa Rosa, about 20 minutes away.
Details and conduct standards are available here. I hope you will join us!
We’re doing this on the cheap: $40 adults, $20 children under 13. Limit 50 attendees. Register by PayPal to paypal.me/atheopaganism and please include a list of the names of your attendees.
The third annual Moon Meet is a congregation of Atheopagans, non-theist Pagans and others interested in our paths, held from Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21, on private land on a redwood-covered mountain near Healdsburg, in the beautiful wine country of Sonoma County, California.
Moon Meet—named because we will hold it during the weekend nearest the full moon—is a group camping gathering; a few indoor sleeping locations are available by prior arrangement for those disabled or coming from distance and unable to bring their gear along.
We will share meals and workshops, hold a community discussion about how our Atheopagan community is developing and how best to move forward, and design and celebrate rituals together. We will share songs, poems and our creativity around the fire. And there will be time for hiking in a beautiful setting, or excursions to nearby wineries and historic sites.
Event pricing is $100– the minimum necessary to defray expenses. This includes five meals. Children under 16 are $35. A small fee will also be charged to pay for the registration service, Brown Paper Tickets.
Prices will go up to $120 on June 25, so please register early!
This third annual Moon Meet grows out of a frequent request in the Atheopagan Facebook group, that we find ways of physically convening as well as virtually gathering online.
