MythiCalia 5, Otherkin gather in California, Sept 28-30
Registration for this year's MythiCalia is open!

MythiCalia is a gathering for otherkin and similar mythical, majikal folk. All types of 'kin, such as elves, faeries, sidhe, unicorns, dragons, etc. are welcome, as well as the fey-touched or half-elven, and human "elf-friends" who are familiar with and friendly to otherkin. We also welcome therians, weres, or other animal-kin who share the mythic feel and spirit.

This year's gather will be held on September 28th-30th (with possibility of coming on the 27th) at a campsite in the SF Bay area, near La Honda, California. The registration fee is $45 per person until August 15th and will go up to $55 per person afterwards.

Check out the website at <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://mythicalia.eristic.net">http://mythicalia.eristic.net</a><!-- m --> for more details. Feel free to email me any questions. I hope to see you there!

I've probably said this before, but for east coast, you should go to either Walking the Thresholds or Crossing the Thresholds, both of which are at the same site in Pennsylvania (June and September respectively).

Ugh I have legal issues that prevent me from going.

Would love to go but can't.

Re: MythiCalia 5, Otherkin gather in California, Sept 28-30
Just bumping this thread with an update...

The following workshops have been proposed:

Energy work with the Seelie and Unseelie Courts
Planar travel and etiquette
Draestari history [Draestari are one of the so-called "Elenari" races of elves]
Aspecting: expressing the inner mythic being
Ritual for entering the mythic world

So far just one person besides myself and my husband is registered and paid, and I have workshop proposals but not yet a registration from one other person (who would have two more people in tow).

The low number is not that unusual for this early in the registration game, but I do want to point out that every person who says to themselves "well, I would go if there were more people" compounds the problem of there not being enough people! Help the numbers out by registering, even if you think it's scanty... it will help things gain momentum. (And if it really turns out that the final headcount is not enough for your tastes I can always give you a refund.)

Also, tomorrow I will be going to check out a privately-owned campsite in the hopes that I can finally solve the problem of having to use public parks, which has been sub-optimal for us and, I think, part of the reason MythiCalia has so far failed to be as nifty as Walking the Thresholds. If I like the site, it will also be comparatively cheaper than the public parks have been. So stay tuned for developments on that front.

Re: MythiCalia 5, Otherkin gather in California, Sept 28-30
There's now about 8 weeks left until the gather. Registration will go up from $45 per person to $55 per person on August 15! (not for profit, just to help me recover the cost of reserving the site.)

The more detailed schedule is beginning to shape up; you can see it here: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://mythicalia.eristic.net/schedule2012.php">http://mythicalia.eristic.net/schedule2012.php</a><!-- m --> The same topics mentioned earlier such as entering the mythic world, aspecting, seelie and unseelie courts, etc. are still there and some have been expanded on; also there have been a couple of additions such as a faery gate experiment and a possible scrying workshop.

A reminder that, though the official dates are Friday-Sunday, subject to availability you can also book one of the sites separately on Thursday night (if you are willing to pay the cost - there may also be someone to split with). I didn't book all the sites Thursday because I didn't think we'd use them, but I would be great to see more folks on Thursday.

So far we have 7 people registered and I think there will be 3 more soon (I have an email in my inbox I need to answer). I think we're up to 5 cars out of a limit of 16 (due to the site arrangements), so if you want to come, I encourage you to register as soon as you can to ensure a spot. It's OK if you can't pay right away when you register; so long as I *do* get the reg fee eventually it's all good.

Lastly, I've added an RSS feed for the news page: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/mythicalia">http://feeds.feedburner.com/mythicalia</a><!-- m --> It's a tad primitive as I am hand-coding simple XML for it, but it seems to work, at least.

Re: MythiCalia 5, Otherkin gather in California, Sept 28-30
With three weeks left until MythiCalia, I would like to add that next week is the deadline to cancel any unneeded campsites. Baxil was kind enough to help me reserve the sites in the first place by putting two on his credit card, but if I cannot guarantee that we will have enough separate parties to have at least one occupant per site (right now we have several small groups each sharing single sites, rather than solo folks split up across all the sites), I need to tell him soonest so he is able to cancel those two and get a refund. That in turn will lower the cap on attendance and number of vehicles.

So! If you have been holding off, while registration is technically open until September 23, I encourage you to register soon, by September 11 at the latest, to ensure that there is a space available for you. It is OK not to pay the registration fee right away - that can always wait until you have your next paycheck or whatever. It is the registration and commitment to attend I am most concerned with.

Hope to see you there!

Re: MythiCalia 5, Otherkin gather in California, Sept 28-30
One week to go until MythiCalia, and just three days left to register... registration will close on Sunday, September 23. There are still several spaces available!

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://mythicalia.eristic.net">http://mythicalia.eristic.net</a><!-- m -->

The schedule is still in flux even this close to showtime - par for the course for 'kin gathers! I can't guarantee that everything shown on <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://mythicalia.eristic.net/schedule2012.php">http://mythicalia.eristic.net/schedule2012.php</a><!-- m --> will actually happen, but it will give you an idea of the kinds of things we may do.
