Ever since Veronica Varlows very first Witch Camp over in the states, I have dreamed of attending something so magical. Witch summer camp - what could be better?
She would host rituals for self-love, teach attendees how to make flower crowns, read their tarot, take nature walks, and make gris-gris bags. Feed them on beautiful Vegan cuisine, even archery took place.
As time went on, my dream expanded. I wanted to host my own Witch Camp...a retreat, here in little old Wales.
Long talks around the fire with one of my besties, about the future, and magic, just reinforced these dreams.
But financially now wasn't the time...Unable to move forward, with no money to complete my plans...they stopped. On hold.
And then one drunken evening, whilst talking about camping, lightning struck!
Combine the two and minimise my costs!
Do one night out in nature as a trial, see the successes, see the downsides, iron out the kinks.
And then...maybe one day...Witches Retreat could be opened to the public. Still intimate groups, but something people could sign up for. Pay to attend a four day retreat from reality, and work on their creative selves. Search and find the magic within themselves, and learn from other powerful, magical beings.
So, just like that it begins. Planned for the June Full Moon, with our location already booked, invites sent out, and the cogs already turning in my head, IT IS HAPPENING!
I'm currently working on goodie bags, daily schedules, and booklets for those attending.
Because I'm crazy enough to plan this for two months before my wedding. *eye roll*
Of course I will share photos and snippets of the retreat once it's been held, and if its something you'd love to do, let me know! I plan to re-do it in 2019 if it's a success.
Which it will be, obviously!
