PUBLICITY: HELP TO SPREAD THE LOVE & MAGIC
Every year amazing synchronicities happen to help people (and fairies) learn about us and make their way to the Congress. You can help this magic happen by spreading the word about the excitement and fun, the learning and growing, the singing and seeds of healing that we plant every year at the Congress. Invite your friends ~ spread the word via word-of-mouth, on facebook www.facebook.com/FairyCongress, share our website via emails and newsletters. You can also request postcards and posters to share with your friends, to post at local shops and metaphysical book stores in your area by contacting us at register [at] fairycongress.com.
Info coming soon!
MUSIC & DANCING
Bring musical instruments, drums, your voices and songs to share. Music, singing and dancing happen at many planned and spontaneous times during the Congress. We always do some Dances of Universal Peace. On thursday evening there is a talent show on the Meadow Stage to showcase all of the local, organic, diverse talent of Congress Community. The magical evening will showcase a handful of featured musicians within a variety show atmosphere that may also include storytelling, movement, and fairy improv. The potential for spontaneous song sharing will keep things fresh. It is always fun and lovely!
For many in the Congress community, Saturday evening at the Congress has come to be a highlight of the event. We start after dinner with a Ritual at the Crossroads with a focus determined by the theme of the event for that year. Most people don a special outfit for the evening as a way to honor and create bonds with the Other Realms – through our costumes we embody different animals and faerie beings. The Ritual leads into the colorful costume parade and the Fairy Charge out into the meadow as we raise the energy. It has become a truly colorful and fabulous parade; and even more incredible for those who have the ‘fairy sight’. See the orb photos that people are taking with their cameras…that can give you a hint of the multi-dimensional fabulousness! The Congress has some costuming supplies available to share with the community, if you have any extras you are also invited to bring fun items to share with others.
We ask that everyone who comes to Congress join in with 2 hours of volunteer time helping out. This creates a feeling of community that cannot be reached when one group serves and the other receives. With just a small participation, you’ll meet new people and be part of making it a great weekend we create together. When we’re all in it together, the magic grows stronger and the experience deepens for everyone. The kitchen will have someone ready to help you find a place to play with us.
Every year we have a raffle to create seed money with which to use for each year’s start up and advertising costs for the Congress. For the raffle we have received donations of items that are amazing such as a stay at Skalitude, a crystal bowl, flower essences, herbal tinctures, books, CD’s, gemstones and much more. We encourage participation to the building and sustaining of our Congress. Be sure to purchase raffle tickets at the Fairyphenalia store at the Congress. The raffle sales will benefit future Congress events.
Please let Suki know if you would like to donate something for the raffle. magikdancer [at] gmail.com.
