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

All listed events are held at Dragonz Wylde Ranch and DragonHeart Retreat, 520 Red Rock Ranch Road, Red Rock, TX at this time.

Update on the property: We have the back 14 acres of the land. We are going to do more of our activities in the new area, DragonHeart Retreat. We are not fully back there till we can get utilities in, (electric and water). You are welcome to camp in the Retreat area and we will be guiding folks through it. If you want to set up camp in the retreat area, please get with one of the staff before doing anything there. There are several camps already there that our land Krew folks have been using.

There are Temporary signs posted at this time, showing entrance into this area and where it ends so we don’t trespass on others property..

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 or a Pagan UU.

We try to keep our Gatherings 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 are working on a playscape area. We have a trampoline that we will be installing in ground. while we do have some playscape equipment, donations of equipment in good condition will be welcome. 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 Hearth Fyre (our main Fire) after 10pm. If they are there later, a parent or guardian must be with them.

Our gatherings are NOT clothing Optional

At this time, we do not have a clothing optional area. If and when we do, it will be for 18 and older only. This area will marked and probably have a some kind of privacy fencing.

Your 6 month membership in our organization is included in your Beltane and Samhain ticket price. Our gatherings are not open to the general public.

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.

On work weekends, we work mostly on that Sat, Sunday folks are welcome to work on personal campsites. You are welcome to come out on Friday evenings after 6pm. If you are coming out Fri, let us know so we can have someone there. Please bring hand tools for clearing brush; mostly Loppers, small chainsaws, rakes, gloves. There is no working on the areas during the week as we need a board member there when we have have folks out. Sat evening we do a potluck meal and have fun. For those that are coming out just for the evening, camping is encouraged.
