  • Summary

    A beacon of light into The Heart of our beloved Borderland, a sacred space kept burning throughout the week.

    Full description of concept

    A Fire of Prayer
    A Fire of protection
    A Fire Of Heart
    A Fire of wisdom
    A Fire sacrifices

    And There from We will co create our contribution to the All pervading Sacred intent for the awakening of All.

    - Fire is one of the 4 Elements through wich this existence manifests.

    At the permanent shelters, we want to create a fire that we keep going for the whole week. At night, it is a place to go if you need to be held when you are having a difficult time but want to work through it with heart rather than mind. Each night a different team of magi will hold the space in their own self-expressive way. During the day, activities and healings will continue, and the fire will be transferred to the Torch.

    The space will be gridded, warded and maintained through the best principles of white magic. Sails will be erected with mystical symbols.

    The fireplace will be the central point, extending into the permanent shelters which will be a safe space to be in process and be held physically through the modalities that you might bring. They will be lit inside with the particular aesthetic magics available in 2017 and floors will be made soft.

    At the end of the night, a torch will be lit to keep the sacred fire going, passing itself on so the energy may propagate and build throughout the week.

    About the group/Artist

    The Circle of Magi are a collection of borderlings who want to hold space for the kind of magic that happens when everything doesn't go the way we want it to. We are experienced shamans and wizards, as well as apprentices and compassionate newcomers wanting to make a difference. We are open for signups.

    Team and plan

    The circle is currently 8 people, but we are open to recruits!

    The plan for some of us is to arrive well in advance and prepare ourselves.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    Keeping matters in place is central to our practice. Cleaning up and leaving no trace will be integrated into the preparations and closing of the space.

    Budget overview

    Specially designed lamps for shelters 1200
    Indirect LED lighting on acrylic 1400
    100W power supplies 300
    Controllers 400
    Firewood(pallet, delivered) 5700
    Shamanic implements(incense, crystals, etc.) 1000
    Fire Wizardry(salts, crackers) 1000
    Sails and paint 900
    Mounts for sails(built from rafters) 2100
    The Torch 1500
    Deep decorations 2000
    Total Materials 17500
    Transport 500

    On a minimum budget, we will reduce this dream to the firewood(which we will try to get a good deal on), scratch the sails(although it would be a cool thing to see reflecting the fire from afar), Find a cheaper solution for decorating the shelters, and self-fund shamanic implements.

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    A group will be created ASAP for interested parties to participate.

    What is this?

    Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. Borderland is a participatory festival that takes place in Boesdal, Denmark. It's a fully participatory event where everything is created by the participants themselves, with out any spectators.
