About the Event

We will gather to prepare for the coming solstice on June 21st, the day of the longest light, the season of summer. A celebration of the sacred masculine within us all. A time of fullness, wild abundance, flowering and greening of tree life. In Celtic culture the Oak is called "Duir" which means doorway, and it is seen as standing at the doorway to the second half of the year. As we follow the journey of the sun around the wheel of the year, we stand now facing south, associated with the element of fire. What is this time of greatest light illuminating in you that may have been in the shadows. What is asking for your full gaze?

We may have a fire if we are able to get a campsite and weather allows. Again, please look for our sign, which will indicate to park in the day-use area. We will have a few people waiting to welcome and escort you to our site, as there is no parking for all of your cars in the campground itself. So please plan to arrive by 3:45 to allow for this shuttling! 

Please bring the following: A folding chair or blanket to sit on, bug spray, your reusable water bottle, journal and pen if you're so inclined, a poem to share about the divine masculine or Father Sun, or summer if one is calling you, an open heart to receive what the holy sun and sacred earth have to bring us. 

Directions will show up on your GPS, but start it before you get close, as there is no WiFi or cell service the last few miles in. For questions or directions, text or call Valerie at 540-405-9201 or email svchurchofthewild@gmail.com. We look forward to connecting with you!
