MythiCalia - elven/faery gathering in California, September 28-30, 2012

(Thought I had made a post about this here, but I can't find it...)


MythiCalia is a gathering for elves, fae, sidhe, Tuatha, changelings, and other such majikal or mythical folk of other kindreds, as well as the fey-touched or "elf-friends". We camp in the woods and have workshops, rituals, and such as well as just hanging out together.

This year we are near La Honda, California. Official dates are Friday-Sunday, September 28th-30th, and there is additionally the option to arrive on Thursday by separate arrangement with the park. Registration is $45 per person until August 15th and will go up to $55 per person thereafter.

So far the following workshops have been proposed:

Energy work with the Seelie and Unseelie Courts
Planar travel and etiquette
Draestari history [Draestari are one of the so-called "Elenari" races of elves]
Aspecting: expressing the inner mythic being
Ritual for entering the mythic world

At this moment just one person besides myself and my husband is registered and paid, and I have workshop proposals but not yet a registration from one other person (who would have two more people in tow). The low number is not that unusual for this early in the registration game, but every person who says to themselves "well, I would go if there were more people" compounds the problem of there not being enough people! If you can help the numbers out by registering, even if you think it's scanty, it will help things gain momentum. (And if it really turns out that the final headcount is not enough for your tastes I can always give you a refund.)

You can see more details, join the mailing list, register, etc all on the website: http://mythicalia.eristic.net

Also, tomorrow I will be going to check out a privately-owned campsite in the hopes that I can finally solve the problem of having to use public parks, which has been sub-optimal for us and, I think, part of the reason MythiCalia has so far failed to be as nifty as Walking the Thresholds. If I like the site, it will also be comparatively cheaper than the public parks have been. So stay tuned for developments on that front.

I am so sorry to hear about Mythicalia having been cancelled. I wanted to go so much myself but life just got so complicated I have  to meditate constantly to keep things peaceful. "have to" meditate is kind of an oxymoron but not sure how else to explain trying to hold down the fort with light energy. I know it must be disappointing for you too.  Hopefully we can come up with another idea like we can at least meet over Internet and have a conversation. ....  You know I should get a little tiny bit of financials for this site, set up Group Skype for us and we can meet every week. Its not s good as the real life even in forest but at least we can touch base at least and chat about all of the stuff that is happening! Probably i can't make up for the disappointment but still love to spend time with you. Love, Tara

I will spare everyone here the ranty post I made a few other places, but I'm sorry that, after my cautiously optimistic post last night extending registration, due to a development I only found out about earlier this morning, I must announce MythiCalia has been cancelled.

Just a quick note to say that there are still spots available, so I'm extending registration until September 26th.

One week to go until MythiCalia, and just three days left to register... registration will close on Sunday, September 23. There are still several spaces available!


The schedule is still in flux even this close to showtime - par for the course for 'kin gathers! I can't guarantee that everything shown on http://mythicalia.eristic.net/schedule2012.php will actually happen, but it will give you an idea of the kinds of things we may do.

T.E., if you are really thinking of coming, I hope to hear from you soon on a registration :)

With three weeks left until MythiCalia, I would like to add that next week is the deadline to cancel any unneeded campsites. Baxil was kind enough to help me reserve the sites in the first place by putting two on his credit card, but if I cannot guarantee that we will have enough separate parties to have at least one occupant per site (right now we have several small groups each sharing single sites, rather than solo folks split up across all the sites), I need to tell him soonest so he is able to cancel those two and get a refund. That in turn will lower the cap on attendance and number of vehicles.

So! If you have been holding off, while registration is technically open until September 23, I encourage you to register soon, by September 11 at the latest, to ensure that there is a space available for you. It is OK not to pay the registration fee right away - that can always wait until you have your next paycheck or whatever. It is the registration and commitment to attend I am most concerned with.

Hope to see you there!

The workshop schedule is a bit different now since a person doing a few of the ones mentioned had to cancel, but we would love to have you :)

Comment by Tara Pelton on September 2, 2012 at 1:09pm

Wow. Sounds great!  I am checking this out right now and it seems a real can-do. Imma email you about this a bit later today xoxo 

Comment by Arethinn aTinderel on August 1, 2012 at 4:19pm

There's now about 8 weeks left until the gather. Registration will go up from $45 per person to $55 per person on August 15! (Not for profit; it's just it help me recoup the cost of reserving the site.)

The more detailed schedule is beginning to shape up; you can see it here: http://mythicalia.eristic.net/schedule2012.php  The same topics mentioned earlier such as entering the mythic world, aspecting, seelie and unseelie courts, etc. are still there and some have been expanded on; also there have been a couple of additions such as a faery gate experiment and a possible scrying workshop.

A reminder that, though the official dates are Friday-Sunday, subject to availability you can also book one of the sites separately on Thursday night (if you are willing to pay the cost - there may also be someone to split with). I didn't book all the sites Thursday because I didn't think we'd use them, but I would be great to see more folks on Thursday.

So far we have 7 people registered and I think there will be 3 more soon (I have an email in my inbox I need to answer). I think we're up to 5 cars out of a limit of 16 (due to the site arrangements), so if you want to come, I encourage you to register as soon as you can to ensure a spot. It's OK if you can't pay right away when you register; so long as I *do* get the reg fee eventually it's all good.

Lastly, I've added an RSS feed for the news page: http://feeds.feedburner.com/mythicalia It's a tad primitive as I am hand-coding simple XML for it, but it seems to work, at least.

Multi Dimensional Reality

The world as you know it - all that you see, taste, feel and touch, comprises only about 5% of all of the stuff of the universe. The other 95% is what we have considered "nothing" or the "firmament" or the heavens or mystic Other Worlds. This 95% is multi-dimensional and consists of potential realities that may be perceived.
