The Mercian Gathering Mission Statement: - To honour the Old Gods - To create a sacred space for people of all paths to come together in a spirit of fellowship, reverence and learning - To raise money for our chosen charities - £37,500 raised so far At the Mercian Gathering, various tribes and types of Pagans gather as one to celebrate the harvest, to thank the Gods for their gifts and honour the Earth with dedicated seasonal ritual. We use the labyrinth as a pathway of transformation, first activating it with the harvest dance on Friday, drawing everyone together into a weekend of shared spiritual aims. Then, on Saturday, we move into purification and offering as we flame the labyrinth and attach our tokens to the wicker man before burning him and sending him to the Gods with our sincere prayers and blessings. On Sunday we will return through the labyrinth to take our blessings to the everyday world. It is a spiritual act, not a spectacle, and we would prefer that people didn't take photographs (we have an official photographer and pictures will be available on the website). We seek to share our knowledge and insights with each other through talks, workshops and conversation. It is a weekend of learning where we respect the beliefs, needs and wisdom of others in an unselfish way. We can all learn, and we can all teach. We are not a festival - we are a purely Pagan camp, concerned with performing ritual and sharing knowledge. There is no beer tent at the Mercian and there never will be, and we discourage you from bringing alcohol on site. Drunken behaviour will not be tolerated. Anyone found dealing drugs will be immediately ejected and given a lifetime ban. We are not a commercial venture, and we do not have many stalls, all day entertainment or any outside caterers. As Pagans we aim to tread lightly on the Earth, consuming as little energy as possible and leaving no litter to mark our passing, taking personal responsibility for our own actions. Before you book a ticket, ask yourself if you are prepared to come in a spirit of reverence for the Old Gods, with a willingness to participate in rituals, talks and workshops, behave with unselfish respect and open friendship for others, and are willing to act from a sense of personal honour. The Mercian Gathering is organised by the Hearth of Arianrhod and staffed entirely by volunteers. No one, except our charities, makes a penny from the event - by 2012 we had raised over £37,500. Everything is free on site, including healing sessions and archery.
This four day celebration is our annual get-together for all spiritually-minded, ecologically motivated and creatively-living people. The Gaunts House Summer Gathering is a life changing experience. Again this year we will have Quality Workshop Experiences, Inspirational Speakers, Uplifting Music, Fun for the Kids, Stalls, Cafes, Therapies, Smoothie and Chakra Bar and much more. "Perhaps the most positive change we can make within ourselves (and naturally integrate back into the world around us) is to move closer to the truth of our authenticity, to journey towards essence. Gaunts House Summer Gathering is here to provide a loving and caring environment which is challenging and inspirational, conscious and uplifting – something which sets us apart from the typical ‘bandwagon’ of summer festivals." Last year we made the decision to go fully vegetarian and also to replace our usual bar with a non-alcoholic alternative. We had such positive feedback last year that we're doing the same again this year. We feel this choice supports a conscious space ideal for deepening self-knowledge. But don't worry - we won't be forgetting the fun and laughter along the way... See you there!
