Registration is open for Beltane 2023:
The Awakening of Psyche
4 Day Festival
During the Season of the Bull, under a new moon in Taurus, and a solar transition into Taurus.
Join us at Ffynnon to commune with nature in Her Aphroditic form!
Walk with Her as the Paleolithic Mother of All and witness Her transformation into the modern Mother of Love - symbolized in Her son Eros.
Join in Her mystery of ‘The Awakening of Psyche’ and in doing so awaken your own psyche to the gifts of Love - not only of the Goddess but also of community!
Friday - We will meet Aphrodite and Psyche during the day and then ignite the Belfire, sing Pagan campfire chants, commune, and dance around the flames!
Saturday - During the day, we will erect the Maypole, which will become the symbolic community Pale for the year. That evening we will then share in the gifts of Eros to Psyche in a Tantric Rite that is meant for all to attendee. Please Note: For the rite you will need a partner, but it does not need to be a romantic partner, just someone you feel open to connecting deeply with.
Sunday - Aphrodite will provide Psyche, and as such all of you, with the wings you need to fly with Love for the rest of the Year!
