EarthSong Witchcamp is organised by a collective of community volunteers. We aim for an inclusive and dynamic organising structure with team members rotating off and new members joining the team each year.

Hi, I’m Maria and I first went to EarthSong in 2016, which was an incredible journey to self and an amazing embodied spiritual experience.  I was over the moon that I found this Reclaiming community.

At the end of that same year, I was asked to join the Organising Team also known as the EarthSong Collective.  I jumped.  It was an extraordinary opportunity to be part of a team who put more magic into the world.

I have now been on the team for 2 years.  2019 will be my third year.  I love being part of this community.

In my day job, I am a teacher of all things Spiritual Development.  I hold women’s circles, workshops and retreats. 
My passions include being outdoors, at the beach and magical crafting.

I look forward to getting to know you better.

 

 

Raven first experienced a Reclaiming magical intensive on Dartmoor in the UK with Starhawk in 1990, and was blown away by the potent mix of magic, self-empowerment and feminism, and she has been weaving Reclaiming style magic ever since.  She attended her first witchcamp in California in 1999, on her back way to Australia, and when she landed in Sydney one of the first things she did was look around for other Reclaiming witches.  It took a few years but in 2011 she was delighted to attend the first Australian Witchcamp with 60 other awesome witches! It felt like she was home at last.

Raven works closely with faery, trees, and the Land using tools such deep listening, voice, and song as a means to open our hearts. She believes nature and the wild are all around us, everywhere, in the city, in the country and all places in between. Raven has a fierce love for the planet and seeks to bridge the worlds of magic and activism knowing that both are vital to bringing healing and change for ourselves, our communities, and the Earth.

Raven lives in the middle of Sydney, Australia in a tall thin house with a garden on the roof. She loves to grow her own vegetables with her hubby and son and watch the clouds scud over when it’s windy.

This is Raven’s second year on the Earthsong organiser’s team and she is holding the exciting role of webwitch.

 

Annie only (re)discovered the Craft in 2013 after reading The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley.  Captivated by the resonance of be(com)ing a Priestess of the Goddess, she jumped online and found EarthSong WitchCamp.  With ‘much trepidation’ she signed up to attend camp and has been a regular attendee ever since, though she missed 2017 because she was on a shamanic vision quest and says it ‘felt like a hole in her year’ not to attend.

This is her second year as an EarthSong Org, where she holds the roles of Budget Witch and Venue Witch.  She never intended to become more involved than simply attending EarthSongs, but is drawn to serving this community which has given her so much and, because she spends so much of her time in the Muggle world wearing Hard Yakka workwear and gumboots, rather likes the opportunity to frock up and wear a tiara.

A self-confessed ‘corporate refugee’, she left Melbourne in 2009 to move back to the land and has no intentions of ever moving back to a city.  She is deeply connected to the Land, and since her first EarthSong, has been consciously singing her land (40 acres in West Gippsland) to reconsecrate it back to the Feminine.

Annie is a passionate gardener and cook and loves whipping up a feast for guests from her extensive home garden. 

She’s also a proud Crone, passionate about bringing Crone power, wisdom and beauty to all the communities in which she operates.

 

Much of my life journey has been about trying to come to peace with an innate sense of Otherness. This has led me down the path of learning about the world’s religions, queerness, different therapies, men’s work and training in group facilitation and leadership. Witchcraft and Shamanism have been significant paths on my journey and I have been involved in a number of communities and endeavours focused on these.

Along the way I have explored journeying with plant medicines. On one such exploration, the plant spirit kept whispering into my ears, “pleasure, pleasure, your path is pleasure!” Consequently, the words “All Acts of Love and Pleasure are Her Ritual” from the Charge of the Goddess really call to me.

In 2016, at EarthSong, I experienced a deep sense of homecoming through the non-hierarchical, spontaneous, experiential and ecstatic nature of a WitchCamp. I am very honoured to have the chance to serve the community that has given me so much, in the role of Rego Witch.
