06/19-26/2011PSG: Pagan Spirit Gathering @ Stonehouse Park - Earlsville, IL: Sat. Jun. 19th, 2011 through Sun. Jun. 26th, 2011. The beautiful Stonehouse Park near Earlville, Illinois will welcome the PSG Community this Summer 2011 for our weeklong celebration of Summer Solstice, June 19-26! Stonehouse Farm offers a very large 3 bay barn that has been renovated where we will hold indoor concerts! No more sitting in the sun for noon concerts! And no more hauling your chairs to the concerts there are plenty of picnic tables! There is a beautiful court yard for gathering right outside of the barn also. There is a wonderfully large shower house that has 3 showers stalls on both the mens' and womens' sides. There are also flush toilets here too! Behind the shower house is a large sink perfect for scrubbing dishes or clothes! Attached to the shower house is covered pavilion that overlooks the wonderful swimming pond and sandy beach! Bring your rafts and lounge chairs and enjoy! Registration is open NOW, with early pricing effective through March 4th. Don't delay - we're looking forward to another great PSG year at our new home! The Pagan Spirit Gathering (PSG) is one of America's oldest and largest Nature Spirituality festivals. Since its inception in 1980, PSG has been bringing together hundreds of people from throughout the United States, plus other countries, to create community, celebrate Summer Solstice, and commune with Nature in a sacred environment. Sponsored by Circle Sanctuary, PSG is open to long-time practitioners as well as newcomers to paths of Wicca, Paganism, Shamanism, Celtic traditions, Native American ways, Ecofeminism, Animism, Nature Mysticism, Pantheism, and related forms of Ecospirituality. PSG is an opportunity for personal renewal, networking, education, and cultural enrichment. As in past years, PSG's spiritual community will begin emerging as participants arrive on opening day, set up camp, meet and greet others, and create a Pagan Town together which will last the entire week of the Gathering. The Sacred Fire will be lit during the Opening Ritual and will be kept burning throughout the Gathering to symbolize the Solstice Sun and Spirit of the PSG community.
