(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.
