Derbyshire Lammas Camp 2016

Lammas is getting ever closer and we're working on making our 13th camp even better. A crew meeting soon for planning, good excuse to get together ;0)  The Opening Fire Ceremony sounds cracking.  If you'd like to entertain/perform dance/sing/or something else let us know, we have a rechargeable amp now so folk and music can more easily be heard.   We're also using the amp Friday night for our nod to Hasfest, the small festival we used to have at the back of our moot pub.

Brief itinerary so far -
 Thursday Camp Opens 2pm - Beating of the Bounds & Opening Fire Ceremony/Ritual, drum curfew 10.30pm

Friday - Entertainment & nod to our original festival Hasfest - Shamanism, Paganism, Rock n Roll!
(If you'd like to perform/entertain, dance/sing/play/??? there's still time to get in touch)

Saturday - Lammas Ritual, Handfasting, Drum curfew 11pm

Sunday Camp closes 2pm

We have some workshops sorted (more to come, keep checking back on the website Morning Star Craft as well as here, ticket info on there as well)  
Workshops and talks are included in the ticket price (£20 per adult for the whole weekend)

Drumming Workshop - Bill

Re-wilding the Soul - Tan Harvey
We are an intrinsic part of nature; therefore if we say that we have lost our connection with nature then we have lost the connection with ourselves.The Oran More – Frank Mills 1998:
“Quiet – Eternal Quiet: – Not even the sound of the restless, stirring, dark waters could be heard.
Then, a great spiraling strain of Melody moved across the endless waters.
Subdued at first, then quickly gathering momentum until it reached a great crescendo.
And, then, there was Life!
But the Melody did not stop. It continued its song, filling all of Creation with its divine harmony.
And so it continues today, for all those who listen.”
The ‘Melody’ – the ‘Song’ this is the life-force energy flowing throughout all of creation, continuously, including US – listen, hear it, re-connect - the raw, wild energy of nature and our souls.

Incense - Tan Harvey
Our olfactory system (our sense of smell) is the quickest way to our brains; a smell is the one of the most powerful things for triggering memories or feelings, altering mood, healing and much more.Incense-sticks provide us with a natural way to achieve this – or do they? Mass production & unscrupulous manufacturers mean that in many the incense is glued to the stick (did you want to glue sniff?) or at worst are only coloured sawdust with chemical scents added.
Learn how to work with raw natural resins, herbs and woods to blend your own unique totally natural incenses, purpose made and lots of fun to do.
