Theme 2019

Every year the Membership votes in a theme for the next year's Gathering.  The Theme is used to inspire the opening, main and closing rituals as well as the Quest if there is one.  Members are invited, but not required, to use the Theme to inspire workshops, discussions and rituals.  The theme for the Gathering 2019 is:

ReWilding

What does that even mean?  It could mean "large-scale conservation aimed at restoring and protecting natural processes and core wilderness areas, providing connectivity between such areas, and protecting or reintroducing apex predators and keystone species."  It could be about "a progressive approach to conservation. It's about letting nature take care of itself, enabling natural processes to shape land and sea, repair damaged ecosystems and restore degraded landscapes."  We could explore this idea from a human perspective.  Or we could simply let the word, the sound, the feeling of it inspire us into something new.

What it means and how you express it and if you express it at the Gathering 2019 is up to you.

This Gathering was the best Gathering I've had so far. This community has been such a blessing to me, and I was so happy to come back. With you I can be my authentic self. Thank you. 

Many of my friends came up to me and told me how much I have come into myself, but I also noticed that this community has also really come into itself. You've become so open and inclusive in the work you do, and it's only going to get better. I'm so proud of this community, and I am honored and humbled to be part of it. 

I can not wait until next year. The Dragons have spoken through us, and they have told us what our work is to be. It's time to get WILD!
