It’s that time of year again! Time to submit for being on the RAT (Ritual Arc Team) or for co-leading a path at camp in July 2016!
Our story is Medusa. Our camp intention is: We seek the Monster’s Unflinching Gaze. We are willing to Look, and risk the Seeing. Striving to hold the divine and monstrous both, we turn the gaze outward. We listen deeply, as allies, and work together to dismantle Privilege and Oppression.
Requirements and applications for being on the RAT or proposing a path:
Spiralheart has again come to a close. I have returned with a wrung out body, a mind teeming with plans, and a soul full of sovereignty.

Knowing I would estrange some of my beloveds, at times temporarily and other times permanently, filled me with bouts of grief and quaking fear that caused me to cling to those final strings of attachment.
Tasked by Freyja, I let go and stepped fully into myself this week.
Loving all of me is infinitely more difficult and unimaginably easier than I knew.
I hold that paradox in gratitude.
Hail the Other.
We’re doing Freyja and Brisingamen, delving deeply into sex magic, empowerment, and how to shed the shame the world likes to cloak us with.

And locally source delicious food made with loving hands! And laughter and dance and singing and bonfires and music and swimming and (some) sleep and a talent show and ….
And if you wish you had signed up – well, next year our story is Medusa!!
