The flame that ignites the heart of the Borderland. A sacred space held for all who might need it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
