Midsummer in the Sierras 2012

Midsummer in the Sierras 2012 Treat yourself and your family to the power, purpose, community, and fun of an extended weekend with members and friends of the Asatru Folk Assembly. This is a family-friendly event. There will be activities, classes, and rituals for youngsters and adults alike.  FULL COLOR BROCHURE     ACCOMMODATIONS Campsites, complete with water, electricity, and tables, ring the open meadow. Restrooms with hot showers are nearby. There are private rooms and bunk rooms for those who want to sleep indoors on beds. Most rooms sleep two, but some are perfect for large families and groups of friends. They are furnished, but you will need your own bedding and towels. We can help provide these for attendees who are flying in. Contact us if you want to reserve indoor accommodations - first come, first served! If you are an individual, we may ask you to share a room since space is so limited. Please help us by registering online or sending in your Registration Form as soon as you can.  From June 21st to June 25th, come be with the Folk who make the AFA the cutting edge of the Germanic religious movement. Here is an overview of some of the things you can expect.   RITUALS ~ Welcome Blessing, Midsummer Blot, Odin Blot, Childrens’ Blessing, Wayfarers’ Blot — these are the time-honored rituals for this event. Steve McNallen will officiate at an afternoon wedding of Lauren Charlesworth and her fiancé, Jonas Anderson. All are welcome to attend. We will also conduct a sumbel, which is among the favorite rituals of the Folk. Calling up the power of the past, the might of the Gods, and the memories of the ancestors, we will infuse ourselves with sacred energy by passing a mead horn around a circle in the twinkling firelight and offering powerful toasts. WORKSHOPS ~ This Midsummer is all about giving you new skills and tools that will make your life even more successful. Among the offerings there will be runeworking, personal analysis, Runenyoga, lessons from the Eddas, effective networking, sustainable living, and building viable communities. FOLKBUILDERS ~ Many of our Folkbuilders will be with us this Midsummer. If your Folkbuilder can’t join us, then please come as your area’s regional representative! Asatru Folk Assembly (AFA) P.O. Box 445, Nevada City, CA 95959 afa@runestone.org 530-575-8692 CHILDREN & FAMILIES ~ Our children will enjoy arts & crafts, nature activities, games, fairytales, plus the play area and the pristine swimming pool which will be open all weekend. We have volunteer arts & crafts coordinators who are planning activities for all to include candle-making and other traditional folkarts. STARGAZING ~ There will be high-powered telescopes on site for late night stargazing. MEALS~ To keep our costs affordable, volunteers do all of the work, from planning, to shopping, to food preparation and cleanup. In the AFA, we all eat together. Each meal begins with a blessing, then all go through the buffet line to fill plates with hearty and healthy dishes. No one ever goes away hungry! VENDORS ~ WE anticipate many vendors this year. In lieu of payment, a donation to our raffle/auction is requested. LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE A special meeting will be taking place so that our AFA Board of Directors, Folkbuilders, and members of the Clergy program can get an in-depth look at the AFA and do some essential planning for the future. MUSIC ~ Neo-folk at its best, performed by the legendary band, CHANGES! Robert N. Taylor has been part of the heathen scene for decades as the leader of Tribe of the Wulfings, writer, artist critic and musician. He’s been featured in dozens of music magazines, and has traveled the world sharing his music and personal philosophy. Since 1968, Robert’s been playing with his cousin, Nicholas Tesluk. It’s our honor to bring them from their home states of WV and NM and feature them here at Midsummer. You’ll also experience the unique music of Lasher Keen, known for its assortment of unusual instruments and amazing vocals. Inspired by Markus Wolff of Waldteufel, this “experimental-folk” heathen music will set the stage for our Odin blot by firelight. Follow the drumbeat to where Odin awaits!     Registration form for AFA Members   Registration form for NON-Members
