Earth Spirit People of Texas

Due to our previous server failing, this is our new website. Please be patient with us as we re-create and update our new site.

Festival tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at PayPal.me/earthspiritpeople or at the check-in station, when you arrive.

Tickets are $50 online and $60 at the gate and include the 6 month membership fee of $10. We also offer a military/veteran discount $40 at the gate with Military/VA ID or other proof of military service. Children 17 and under are free, but must have an adult Guardian with them.

Our upcoming event is:

Located at 520 Red Rock Ranch Road, Red Rock, TX

In these troubled times, we need to find a way to come together safely. With this in mind, we are still having a live event, but asking our members to remain cautious.

We have set up hand-washing stations in Faerie Lounge and at the Flushies. We ask that our members wear masks in the public area, exceptions are at your personal camps or among your “Quarantine Pod.” If you can’t do a mask, at least wear a veil over your nose and mouth

We also ask that if you are sick, may have been exposed to COVID-19 in the last 14 days, or are running a fever, Please do not attend.

We will be checking temperatures at the gate.

With that being said, here are some of the things planned for the event.

Guest speaker will be Oberon Zell

(Virtually, but we hope to have it where people can interact with him) He will be talking to us about the History of the Pagan community here in the states.

Workshops:

Broom Making with Acacia

We did this at Mabon and it has been requested that we do another one. Please bring ribbons and other decorations to decorate the broom when it is finished. We will be using the Bluestem grasses that grow out at Dragonz Wylde.

Acceptance Workshop with Acacia and other Board members of ESP: This is more of a discussion about what acceptance can mean in the pagan community.

Grounding workshop with Malibu, Orlando and Acacia

Weird Spirits Explorations with Ruatha and MoonSong

Discoveries and interpretations. Listen and share stories about spirits and the spirit world.

Inner Demons Reclaim your power with Ruatha:

Augment your power. Remove blocks on your path. A discussion of shamanic journeying, healing, and shadow work. We’ll examine the nature of the darkest parts of ourselves, and I’ll share my own experiences. NOTE: This will not include a shamanic journey since these journeys are highly personal and should be done in a one-to-one setting with an experienced healer.

Old Faith with Ruatha:

What is the role of faith in modern paganism? How can we reclaim old world value systems? We’ll compare the wholistic view of religion before and after western philosophy to better understand out ancestors values.

Tai Chi Magick with Ruatha:

Move your body, energy and mind to invigorate, rejuvenate, and integrate magick into your every fiber. With COVID in mind, we’ll focus largely on boosting your immune system.

Pumpkin Carving
While we will have some donated pumpkins, anyone else wishing to add to them would be appreciated. This is mostly for the kids, but if there is enough, adults are welcome too. If your kids are carving pumpkins, we ask that at least one parent be there to assist them.
