Due to the rise in infections of COVID here in Texas, 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.

We also ask you to bring a mask for those times that we are in close proximity of each other, even if you have had the vaccine.

These are all outdoor events, if we are careful, we should be able to continue these safely.

We will check temps and do a COVID assessment on those coming out. If you are running a fever, you will be asked to leave and come back another time.

Work weekends happening.

Those that wish to help with land maintenance and festival prep are welcome to come out Fri evening and set up camp. 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.

We will be getting ready for our Samhain gathering….there is ritual space setup, stage decoration and the never ending trail maintenance.

Temple Ritual:
Celebrating Samhain, The Third Harvest

As a Priestess of the Sacred Harlot in Aphrodite’s Temple, the Universe, Goddess, Creator, nature, or whatever you believe created human beings, provided human beings a gift. The gift is a body that is designed to both give and receive pleasure that can bring us to a state of ecstasy. In this ritual, we will honor and celebrate the gift of pleasure utilizing finger food, erotic sensations (optional participation and either solo or with partner(s)), massage (massage oil provided), or any pleasures that you would enjoy (bring materials if needed). Join us in celebrating the gift of pleasure. Bring a towel or blanket if you want to sit or lay on the ground.
