My First Festival

Like everything else so far everything sorted of fell together.

I had been attending the Pagan Brunch and Rituals at the Temple of the Sacred Grovefor a while. One day I ran into Fenris at Brunch. He like others had been practicing for a while. We became close friends very quickly. He had mentioned what it was like for him going to fest. He had attended a few and was about to attend Harvest Fest just outside of Toronto Ontario.

Finally organizing my finances I manage to attend Harvest Fest. From the time I started for the fest I felt the anticipation and energy building inside of me. Once on site I got set up and almost immediately started to make new aquaintences and new friends. Of these there are some I have bonded for life like Akasha. (see her page on the main page.)

From opening Ritual I could feel amazing energy and power emmanating from this group. It was amazing feeling this good around mostly total strangers.

That night there was a fire burning, drums beating a rythm and I started dancing with the others around the fire. I believe that the drums and the fire have powers to heal and much, much more. This I will get into on another pages.

At some point I lost my wallet. It was recovered and given back to me intact. Its amazing the feel that I can trust these strangers with over 200$ in my wallet and not have to worry.

If you dought anything I say about the feeling of fest attend with an open heart and open mind and you will discover this for yourself.

Fests tend to change alot. Dates, Cancellation, New Fests, Conventions etc. I found it easier to simply send people to PIC Canada (Pagan Information Centre (Canada)) and have them look at the "Links" section. A list of Festivals, Conventions, Gatherings, Retreats and so much more is on that page and I try to keep up to date. Overall it is alot easier to update the "Links" section that it is to modify the webpage on a regular basis.
