Magick Earth Festival
also known as
and celebrations for people who follow the Earth and Nature
based faiths, religions and beliefs.
(Easter 2014) we are heading to a new venue south west of Hamilton,
Te Kauri Lodge, on State Highway #31 halfway to Kawhia
Celebrating 10 years of Magick Earth Festivals (MEF)
(Click here for more details)
Suitable for both beginners starting their journey and those
with more experience
they are essentially focused on ........
• family and community
• the sharing of information through workshops and lectures
• the celebration of Pagan and Heathen music, art and culture.
• networking and community building through discussions and
people who have attended include a multitude of paths, Eclectic, Wiccan,
Pagan, Heathen and Druid just to name a few, we all come
together in a spirit of community and respect for others who
may have a different path.
Magick Earth was established in March 2005, and held many festivals around the North Island,
With the permission of Polli and Ed who created it and own the
name "Magick Earth" we have carried on their traditions and
principals in our MEF festivals.
difference between MEF and many other festivals is that there
are no free tickets handed out, we
minimise our costs so it is affordable and we encourage
participation by everybody to create a community where we help
each other, we share the work load and we share our knowledge and experience.
MEF features stalls, lectures, workshops and
discussion forums as well as rituals appropriate to the timing
or theme of the festival. You may also find drumming circles or bardic
circles. They have also become a place for folks to get together
for Rites of Passage ceremonies such as Wiccanings (or Namings)
and Handfastings (Weddings).
MEF is a very family friendly place, most of us have
kids and they enjoy mixing together and entertaining each other
in a loosely supervised environment.
It is about honoring our Earth Mother, our Ancestors,
celebrating our individual chosen paths and connecting with
like-minded souls from many different traditions.
So I welcome any and all who wish to come along and get yourself
a dose of uplifting pagan community spirit.
Due to a minimal advertising budget we encourage you to
spread the word to others who may be interested.
At this time we would also like suggestions of lectures and
workshops you would like to attend and suggestions of people who
could be encouraged to offer workshops.
Only Stall Holders who are compatible with our community will be
there, this means they are pagans themselves and their
products and services are craft or pagan related.
