Earth Spirit People of Texas is a 501(3)(c) religious organization

All listed events are held at Dragonz Wylde Ranch, 520 Red Rock Ranch Road, Red Rock, TX at this time, unless otherwise stated

We have been made an offer to be bought out of our share of Dragonz Wylde.

Till this happens, we will continue to host our events at Dragonz Wylde Ranch.

ESPOT is not going away. We will be purchasing new land as soon as the buy out is complete or other arrangements have been made.

We will update on this as we know more.

We ask that if you are sick, or been exposed to someone that is sick, within the last 14 day, please don’t attend our events till you are better and the 14 day time period has elapsed.

Part of our goal is a place for people from all walks of life and different beliefs to be able to come together, learn from each other and build a community that is larger than our individual groups…..A Gathering of the Tribes

Mini-fests celebrating the other Sabbaths.

Dates for Imbolc and Ostara TBA

We are working towards being able to celebrate all eight Sabbaths in some form.

These will be, for the most part, one day festivals. People will be allowed to come out the day before to set up camp and stay through Sunday. All the main festivities will be on that Sat starting around 10am and will include some workshops, a craft that is aligned with that sabbath, a ritual and a potluck. These are $30 or $20 if you are offering a workshop and can be paid online or at the gate.

Our Gatherings are Family Friendly.

Working toward this, children are free and are welcome in most of the workshops and rituals. We even try to have some that are geared toward the younger folks. We also have a playscape area. Parents are responsible for their children in this area.

We do not babysit your children, though. If you bring them, you are responsible for them. We also ask that underage children not be at the fire after 10pm. If they are there later, a parent or guardian must be with them.

Our gatherings are NOT clothing Optional, Though, at this time, we do have a clothing optional area, that is for 18 and older only. This area is marked and has a privacy fenced in area.

Your membership in our organization is included in your ticket price.

We try to hold these in the Spring and Fall before the two main festivals. Which one you attend depends on your perception of your gender. These gatherings are where we usually do the coming of age rituals.

These are Community/work weekend to give folks a time to gather as well as do maintenance on the land and projects.

If you just want to come out and see the land and hang with us Sat night, that is cool too.

Camping is available for those that do this as well. You do not have to be a member to come out, you are a guest of the board for the weekend.
