FALL FEST HARVEST HOMECOMING

Thursday October 25th- Sunday October 28th, 2007

Four days and nights of Mystery, Magic, Music and Fire!

Fall Fest is a four day long ritual of the elements, held in and around Las Vegas, and is our community gathering of Harvest, Love and Gratitude.

Earth: We begin the ritual as we gather to feast and reconnect the strands of our web.

Air: We celebrate the many gifts we share, with voice, poetry, chant, dance, costume, mask and ritual, with your MCs Spinner and Magnus, Sheila Z, and DJ Sylvia Brallier, featuring belly dancers, and the Mystery School magicians and a midnight Halloween seance.

Fire: We spend a night from sundown to sunrise, in the desert, honoring the ancestors, at BoneDance, our all-night drum and dance Alchemical Fire Ritual.

Water: We reflect our light in the waters of bliss on our last night of homecoming together, deepening and nurturing our relationships in community.

Come to sing, to drum, to dance, to make magic, to play, laugh and have one heck of a good time! Come to fill up, to re-fuel, and to Fall… in love. Give yourself the free gift of open eyes, clear minds and loving hearts in this opportunity for community. Feel the pull of the Vegas Vortex.

There is no registration fee for this year's Fall Fest Harvest Homecoming Weekend, but in order for us to have enough goodies for everyone, we DO need to know who is coming, so so PLEASE REGISTER ONLINE
