We are a volunteer run organization and your donation helps us to expand one of the above areas to further enhance the empowerment of women, sisters, grandmothers, mothers and daughters.

10% of all funds raised will be donated to our local Nevada County women's shelter 'Women of Worth'.
Women of Worth (WoW) was founded over 20 years ago by Sandy Escobar-Schmidt, a survivor whose personal passion is to help abused women and children escape domestic violence.
WoW helps families in crisis, victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking. We also offer programs to increase self-reliance and improve quality of life by helping victims rebuild their lives with dignity, hope and safety.

ALMOST SUMMER BLESSINGS!

What better way to welcome in the changing of seasons with an elemental union of ancestral skills, archery, music, fun and water shenanigans. We will welcome in summer with an assortment of workshops offered during the day and an epic compilation of music by night!

Welcome to a land of spring water, trees & flowers. Please bring yourself food and nourishment for the day and night. This is a camping event so please make sure you have the supplies you need. There will be food vendors on site. We recommend that you also bring your own food. Be self sustainable throughout the soirée, no waste please, and enjoy the serenity of life in the forest!

We are a PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT event ~ please take all trash/recyclables with you upon departure.

All proceeds beyond the event expenses are donated to Origins Gathering and Women of Worth! Upon arrival + entry, you'll have the opportunity to choose which component of the gathering your ticket goes towards developing: Mama’s Village, Wellness Spa (home of the Pussy Parlor), or The Hearth (community kitchen).

**A raffle and LIVE auction will also be held throughout the day and evening.

Water & Fire Blessing: we will gather together to give gratitude to the waters of this earth. Once we’ve given our prayers to the water we will light the Sacred Fire. This fire will stay lit and tended throughout the evening. Keep in mind, this is a beautiful container that must be respected and diligently tended to. If you have experience tending fires and would like to take a shift during the gathering, please send us your details.

Music: calling in musicians, djs, acoustic artists, and bands! We are looking for an epic lineup for this gathering and would love for you to consider playing. Since this is a fundraiser we ask that you donate your musical talents to a beautiful cause supporting womxn’s healing, empowerment, and sisterhood bonding. Supporting local in all we do is a goal of ours, therefore our lineup will be mostly/all local musicians! If you or a musical friend(s) are located in Nevada, Yuba, Placer or Sierra Counties please apply to come play!

Artists: some live painting or a dance performance would be pretty epic too! If you’re interested fill out an application!
