Litha Camping Celebration
A Womxn's Sacred Sabbat Weekend Retreat
Thursday, June 22, 2023 - Sunday, June 25, 2023
Come back to the land, come back to the magick. This womxn's retreat is crafted to celebrate the earthen lineage of the Pagan/Celtic Wheel of the Year, yet we are bound by no particular lens.
Litha, also known as Summer Solstice or Mid-Summer, is the time of year to celebrate the full bloom of life. Everything is vibrating with energy and abundance. The sun is high, her leaves are the most jeweled green, and the Goddess is brimming with LIFE.
Let us honor Her.
This semi-primitive gathering of aching souls is a time of ceremony, learning the old ways, connecting with Mama Earth, and surrendering to the glory of life.
What say you, sweet soul? Are you ready to honor the fire that lives inside you?
Let's get dirty, let's get wild.

We are honored to be able to use the land of Stephanie Layne of Thistle Bee Tea Co.
Having been in her family for generations, Stephanie wants to share the beautiful medicine of the land that holds so dear, and that she has helped to cultivate since birth.
Located in Yellow Springs, Ohio, (less than an hour from Dayton and Columbus) we will camp for the weekend. This is an opportunity to come back to the earth and honor her in the best ways we can.
A shower and bathroom are available, as well as non-potable water, and electricity. We will have jugs and jugs of fresh water available for use.
All food, coffee, and tea are provided. Breakfast and lunch will be served by my loving hands, but dinner will be made as a community. Feel free to bring yourself snacks!
