MOON MEET: Call for workshop proposals

If you’re coming to Moon Meet and would like to present a workshop, please contact me ASAP at atheopagan [at] comcast [dot] net to present your idea and start a discussion.

[NEW EDIT]:  Please submit workshop proposals by March 20, so I can publish the event schedule thereafter. Thank you!

There are three workshop slots at the gathering, each an hour and 45 minutes long. I hope to have at least two workshops in each slot, so participants can choose what interests them.

Possible workshop subjects include (but are not limited to):

Drumming
Ritual songs and chants
Spoken word in ritual
Movement in ritual
Focus building
Creating sacred space
Meditative/contemplative techniques

Or any other ideas you may have!

Moon Meet REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

I have found a venue, and Moon Meet, the first nontheist Pagan festival, is going to happen!

Moon Meet is a congregation of Atheopagans, non-theist Pagans and others interested in our paths, to be held from Friday, August 4 through Sunday, August 6, 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 of the full moon—is a group camping gathering; a few indoor sleeping locations will be available for those who are 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.

The event is $90 for the weekend, which includes five meals. This is the minimum necessary to defray expenses–I am not making any money on the event, I just want it to happen!

To register for Moon Meet 2017, click HERE.

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. My hope is that it will become an annual event which will grow in size and complexity in subsequent years.

Details on the schedule of events will be available soon. If you would like to present a workshop, please contact me now! Use the form on the blog’s “Contact” page.

I hope to see you there

MOON MEET 2017: An Atheopagan Gathering

Moon Meet will be a congregation of Atheopagans, non-theist Pagans and others interested in our paths, held from Friday, August 4 through Sunday, August 6, 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 of the full moon—is a group camping gathering; options to rent camping gear will be available for those coming from distance and unable to bring their gear along. If there are disabled attendees who are unable to camp, we will work out hotel accommodations and transportation with them so they are able to participate. 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 will be kept to the minimum necessary to defray expenses.
