A Faerie Invitation
Make yourself a cup of your favourite tea, find a nice comfy chair and throw the cat out of it, relax and read this ‘Call’. If you are new to Gatherings at Featherstone castle there’s lots of very useful information here and in the links to help make your stay more enjoyable. If you are an experienced faerie who doesn’t need to read all this – yes you do!
Once again The Albion tribe of Radical Faeries will gather to celebrate Samhain at Featherstone castle in Northumberland. These are magical gatherings held in a very special venue and created by the Faeries who attend.
A Radical Faerie gathering is first and foremost a collaborative effort. It is made up of what each of us brings; physical, mental, energetic, planned and spontaneous, aware and unaware. We the organisers, ask that you think about what you might bring with you, both as gift/offering and as baggage/exploration. All are welcome in their entirety. However the more you share the more you get and the better everyone’s gathering is (the only exception to this are virus’s and infectious illnesses which we are happy for you to be mean & selfish about and keep to yourself).
At a Featherstone gathering everyone is an organiser, the team will have the basics of the castle ready for you when you arrive, then it is for all of us as a tribe to enjoy  creating, decorating, cleaning, feeding and enlivening our home. A guiding principle is that, if you see something that needs doing, feel free to do it, and if you don’t know how then simply ask other Faeries to help you or show you how, so is love made manifest.

 

Samhain: 
Scorpio season when the veils are thin
Full Moon in Taurus bringing us in
Life renewing: we enter the dark time of year
Life renewing: unlocking the mysteries of being Queer.
The season of Magick when the worlds align
The dead come dancing and deliver the signs
Of the unity of spirit and the changing times.
Preparing ourselves for the Winter journey
and a life renewed in a cosmic paradigm
Faeries at Featherstone, a hideaway for the Soul
As a tribe we help each other on the Way
to becoming Holy and Whole.
“The Samhain – Hallowe’en – season gives us the chance to give death some attention. The veils between spirit and material planes are said to be at their thinnest at this point of the seasonal cycle, as the year wanes and the darkest time of the year begins. Remembering our ancestors, our loved ones who have passed through the veil, helps us to make friends with death and feel the love that hides in the darkness.”    Shokti
You can arrive any time/day after midday on the 16th but NOT BEFORE. The organising team needs time and space to get the castle ready and you will not be allowed into the castle before this time. Stay for as long as you wish up to midday on the 25th. Everyone must have left the castle by midday on the 25th and there is no option to stay extra nights after that.
If you have any specific queries or issues not answered above please contact the gathering organisers at faerieuk@gmail.com  and preface your enquiry with FS18.
