Camp Paths 2013
The Triad of Manifestation:
Using the power of Will, Intent and Desire to Transform our Tales and our Lives!
– Adults only –
The magic of threes, of triads, of threes within threes and triads of triads: these have ever been the tools of the Witch and Magician, the Shaman and Priest/ess. It is no wonder that so many Dieties, including our beloved Brighid, are shown with three faces or three aspects. To unlock this mystery – and learn its practical application in every phase of your own life – come join us in this magical path of transformation and manifestation!
Through learning, dreaming and doing, trance, song and movement, divination, storytelling and deep listening, we will examine our relationship to the three great Powers that help us discover, uncover and manifest our true work and path: Will, Intent, and Desire.
When in balance, this mighty triad forges a flow and momentum that carries us firmly to our True Work in the world. If our manifest lives – our loves and work, our bodies and homes, our creativity and relationship to Nature – are not what we think they should be, it may be because one or more of these three ‘legs’ is out of balance.
We will use another, familiar Triad – Past, Present and Future – to examine our personal ‘lore’, the stories of our lives. Viewed through this lens, we will clarify our heart’s Desire, focus our Intent, and engage our powerful Will to manifest a life that is truly our own.
Our goal is to help grow the tools, abilities and courage to create those deeply magical moments when we are doing the right thing, in the right place, at the right time, for the right reasons and with the right results, truly balancing our needs and lives with those around us. It’s a life’s work, to be sure, but we’ll take some steps down that path!
We’ll also have fun! Humour and joy are an essential part of transforming our tales in this Path, which is suitable for magical workers aged 16-plus.
Come, transform your past, present and future to step joyfully into manifesting the life you know you are meant to live!
Camp Teachers 2013
Suus is a Dutch witch who has been fascinated with magic her entire life. As a child she thought life was filled with mysteries, and guess what, it is!
Suus was lucky to grow up in an environment where there was room to explore these mysteries. After exploring the rational side of life thoroughly for a while she returned to her first love: magic and started to seriously look for a teacher. She has studied magic for over a decade now, has trained with people in various traditions, varying from Gardnerian to Reclaiming. Suus is an initiate of the Anderson Feri tradition. She also has been part of T. Thorn Coyle’s Morningstar Mystery School for over 7 years and currently holds the White and the Blue Cord of that tradition and acts as a mentor for the school. Besides that Suus has studied psychology and is a Reiki master. She loves working with the energies that are all around and in us and loves to sing!
To her leading a magical life means that every thing we do carries magic in it and she tries to be as aware of that as she can. Suus finds life in all its wonderful shapes and forms is sacred.
Suus lives in a suburb in the east of The Netherlands with her husband, daughter, dog and cats and has made it a goal in life to incorporate magic in everything she does.
Fortuna’s an American witch who has been living in the Netherlands since 2003. She has been a student of T. Thorn Coyle since 2005, and is now a Mentor in Thorn’s Morningstar Mystery School (MStar) and a holder of white and blue cords in the MStar tradition. She has been teaching and priestessing in the Reclaiming tradition since 2007. A member of the teaching team at the very first Dragonrise in 2009, she is particularly pleased and honoured to be returning for 2013! She does odd jobs for the Gods, including writing and drawing, divination and Tarot counseling, coaching, punning, and loving.
“Chelidon is a devotee of the bardic arts, including the skills of word, rhythm, story and song, and holds deeply sacred the creation of time and space for the infinite diversity of truths to be shared.
He believes that we each live and carry unique tales — and that in sharing our stories through drum, voice, ritual, poetry, music, or other Art, we connect with our timeless human birthright and inheritance, and add our irreplaceable, delicious flavors to the Great Tale we all share. His other loves include history and mythology, herbalism, brewing and alchemy, and art crafted with wood, metal, stone, chocolate, pixels or love.
Most of his inspiration comes from the ferociously lascivious beauty of nature, especially the wild woods of New Hampshire, USA, where he lives in intentional community with much-beloved family, children and friends, on deeply magical land they delight in sharing with others for workshops, classes and camps.
Chelidon has been teaching magic in the Reclaiming tradition at Witchcamps and many other events for more than fifteen years, and pulls his own spiritual and magical craft from a long diverse chain of heritage, study and practice. He believes, more than anything else, that the universe is quite literally made of love.”
And our late addition: Susan Moonroot, a long standing member of British Reclaiming!
Prices and Important Dates for 2013
We have tried to make this camp as affordable as possible, and the bulk of our costs relate to accommodation and food. We are grateful to our teachers who are not expecting any payment over and above their travel costs. We will offer free places to children under 3 sleeping in a travel cot — although please be aware that the majority of sleeping areas are communal and both adults and children will need to be able to respect other attendants need for quiet.
We recognise that some people (especially a large family who all want to attend, but also some individuals) may face difficulty in affording the cost. Similary we will help as best we can if someone needs to bring a non-participant such as a carer or signing translator. If this is your situation, please get in touch with us by April 1st; if we get enough bookings, or sufficient campers are generous enough to make additional donations on top of their bookings, we may be able to negotiate something workable closer to the date of camp.
Early Bird (before 30th April 2013): £200 to £280
Children under 3: free if using a travel cot
After April 30th: £225 to £300
