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.

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.

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.

 

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.

 

 

I live in my homeland of Aotearoa, the land of the long white cloud, New Zealand. My ancestors are from across Europe, but the closest connections are to those from Galway and Cork in Ireland, and from Ngati Pou of Tainui Iwi in Aotearoa/New Zealand. The ancestral river of my Iwi is the Waikato, but my home, and home of my family across 5 generations is Te Whanga-nui-a-Tara (the great harbour of Tara)/ Wellington. I lived in Dublin in 2017, and connect with Ireland as a homeland, and with the myths of the Three Cauldrons of Poesy, with Boann, with Brighid, with Lugh.

I've been a pagan for 22 years, identifying strongly with Reclaiming. While most of my connection has been through books and online, I attended my first/the first Reclaiming Free Activist Witchcamp in the wilds of Oregon in 2005, and the SF Spiral Dance in 2008. I'm also a member of my local OBOD Druid - Grove of the Summer Stars, where I practice my fledgling bardic skills, am an Alexandrian Witch, and work with a small but growing Reclaiming aligned group in Wellington.

I was honoured to visit and connect with the very different land, the land of the Dja Dja Warrung at Earthsong in 2018, and immediately volunteered as an Organiser to connect with the community in Australia, the so many beautiful witches, and this land.

I am Info / Web Witch, and am glad to be able to bring my IT skills into the service of my spiritual community.
