A Pagan Gathering for Australia and the world

Saturday, July 13, 2013



Hello one and all! We hope you are all keeping warm and toasty and are enjoying the wintery months. We are loving the crisp frosts, warm fires, good companionship and ease with which life has granted us. As usual we hibernate during this time and keep busy with all the usual commitments as well as crafts, markets, shared cups of tea and great get togethers.

Once again the wonderful folk from Hepburn Relocalisation Network asked us to host the Winter Solstice Ritual. It was a beautiful perfect Yule night, filled with warmth, good food, new friends and stirring music. We thank you all for joining with us and allowing us to share with you all.

Slowly as befits this time of the year, we begin to wind our organising up in the leading months prior to the Gathering. We have had many emails enquiring about the Gathering this year and confirm the following dates for your diaries!

The Gathering is always held on the last weekend of October regardless of whether that weekend leads into November. For 2013 the dates are from Friday the 25th October to Sunday the 27th October.
Once again we remind those wishing to participate that we have a capped level of attendees that can be covered under our event insurance. You may still camp at the Mountain of course but we cannot include you in any insurance unless you have registered your legal names with us.

Over the coming weeks we will post once again the handy list of things to bring and what is and is not permitted.

We are very pleased that this year we get a year off (woot!) and the ritual will be hosted by the very lovely Seline Cardamon-Cairns.

Mount Franklin Annual Pagan Gathering welcomes all pagan practices, so if you (or you and your group) wish to host a ritual please stick your hand up at the Sunday Moot to do so. The only requisite is a bonfire-of course!

Happy days with Imbolc approaching fast...not long to go now :)
