Saturday 18th May – Monday 20th May, 2024.
For the 2024 Gathering for Life on Earth, we will Gather on a beautiful site on the shared traditional and unceded lands of the Stz’uminus, Kwantlen, W̱SÁNEĆ, Stó:lō, Tsawwassen, and Katzie First Nations (Surrey, BC).
We do not disclose the name and actual location of the site publicly as not everyone is out of the broom closet and we wish to honour everyone’s journey.
Again, we are excited to offer both tent camping and day tripping options!
Crafting the Craft
What does “Crafting the Craft” mean to you?
- Doing a presentation to share knowledge?
- Participating in a practical workshop to create something tangible to take home with you?
- Learning how to create spells or rituals?
- Cooking and Herbcraft?
- Using an artistic medium to express your craft, whether it’s fine arts, performing arts, writing and poetry, storytelling, music, fire dancing…the possibilities are endless!
Come join us in the discussion on our Facebook group! (CREATE POST, ADD LINK)

Events & Activities
As always, events only happen when you (yes, you!) volunteer to share. The event can be pretty much anything that you have knowledge of, or something you have fun doing and are willing to share with others. When you register you will be asked if you’d like to offer a ritual, workshop, or activity.
Some activities may have an additional materials fee, which will be noted in the activity description.
Please check back in at Happenings for more events as we confirm workshops.
Confirmed events include:
- Opening Ritual, Main Ritual & Closing Ritual.
Opening, Closing & Main Ritual
Would you like to creating the Opening, Closing, or Main Rituals? You will be asked to submit a short proposal.
For Opening/Closing Rituals, preference will be given to overnight campers.
Applications for those interested in presenting these rituals must be submitted to the Board with a paid registration by no later than 1st March 2024.
We will have arts and crafts, games, workshops, and more designed for our youngest Gatherers to do with their parents or designated adults. Please see our Policy Regarding Minors for expectations regarding children and youth at the Gathering.
