Radical Faeries Austria and Central Europe

We are part of the Radical Faerie tribe, a queer community of all ages, genders, shapes and sizes, races, and nationalities. We have no religion or dogma. But we are full of spirit. We are a conscious evolution of gay, lesbian, transgender or no gender life. We refuse hierarchy and embrace consensus. We connect to life and each other through the blessings of nature. We are queer people exploring tribal life, sustainability, and harmony with nature.

“In den “Radical Faeries” hab ich das Gefühl, wird sich was ereignen, was mich erfüllt ”  Hermes Phettberg

“Be radical in your dreams!” My greatest wish, Udo Jürgens

Voices from the Waterlilies Gathering, Hévíz – Hungary

*

SEEROSEN TREFFEN – erstes Faerie Gathering in Ungarn 2016

*

Dear Faeries!
Szerelem Tündérek szerelem!
*

We spent some lovely days in Hungary

to have time for ourselves and to relax at the wonderful warm thermal lake of Hévíz – the largest natural thermal lake in the world.

An amazing and healing experience was awaiting us amidst shiny fragrant water lilies and mud.

and we brought some Faerie Energy to an “Eastern” European Country

and we will continue our Radical Faerie/Eurofaerie VISIONS process.

 We know that many of you who expressed at least some interest in faerie life are not able to travel far (like France or UK or US) so we came to you. The gathering was open for guests from neighboring and other countries as well. So we believed that it could be a very nice and healing signal if we could create some Faerie Magic in this country and support those who already work & live in this direction.

  WE WANTED TO GIVE YOU THE CHANCE TO FEEL THE FAERIE SPIRIT.

We enjoyed the time and felt the healing.

Personal statement: First of all, thank you so much that you expressed your will to gather with us in a new country! We all know about the political situation in some eastern countries and some of you also expressed their concern about the current LGBTIQ situation. But we all are healers and we enjoyed ourselves around this magical lake. People understand if they have the chance to know us better. We try to be pioneers and will spread the Faerie spirit! We are ONE tribe wherever we are, even in our diversity. We were in a safe space in this campsite and in this town which lives of tourists (for them we are). We had a wonderful gathering as we focused on our healing skills. It was NOT a regular event but we are sure that it will happen again in Hungary – maybe next time in winter 2018 or 19? It also depends if it is accepted and appreciated by you and the Faeries in the neighbouring countries and if we can feel your love and spirit in your physical presence.

SILENCE IS HEALING

…. and here are the first reactions and voices of the participating Faeries:

We (Mata Hari + Red Rose) are so grateful that you all came to this unique place in this world. I must admit that also one of my biggest dreams came true that also just a flower can call us together. I still feel a lot of healing and I hope that you keep this feeling as long as you live.

Blesses be!

Dear Faery Sweethearts,
Thanks for the wonderful time we had together! 
Still floating between waterlilies and the beloved Radical Faeries … „heart“-Emoticon<3 so much enjoyed the gathering in Hungary especially lingering with our “noodles” in the warm lake and channel, having so much fun laughing and going so deep into our divine sparks.
 I’m so happy and grateful that I could join and meet these beautiful people – all full of reflection, juicyness and delight!
 Flora and me – being the only women* – at the gathering – have had the idea of founding the Radical Pixies Austria, as part of the Radical Faeries Austria. 
 This is the introduction and invitation to the group – pls let me know if you are interested, so i’ll add you to the FB group:
 “we want to create a community for queer-feminist women*, genderqueers, intersex, transgender, nogender, transsexual, genderfluid & non-binary persons as part of the Radical Faeries in Austria & the neighbouring countries in Central Europe
we explore, discuss and create links between spirituality, queer-feminist politics, sustainability, sensuality, sexuality, consciousness & friendship
we explore our own power and the power of the heart to connect with each other and with life & nature that surrounds us and that we are a part of”
Lots of love and sirenness 😉

“one of the (possibly sulphur-overdose-induced 😉 ) visions i carried back with me from the wonderful waterlily gathering with beloved faerie friends old & new frolicking by & in the healing waters of the magical thermal lake in Hévíz was developed in conversation with Loreley (originally inspired by hearing about the Radical Pixies Israel last year) & i hope the seed of our vision will grow & blossom into life like the waterlilies – if you are interested in joining us please pm & i will add you to our secret fb Group”

“Thank you again for organizing the gathering – it needs lot of bravery and will, I appreciate it.
I was happy to get to one of the places I dreamed about a lot in couple of years … and not alone (I can’t enjoy beauty on my own, that would be half experience for me) – especially with faeries.
Lots of love

Hi Mata Hari,
Thanks to you and Red Rose for organising the Hévíz gathering. I really enjoyed it and learned from it. I’m sending you my email address so that I can stay in touch with other faery possibilities nearby in the future. 
Thanks

How can I find words for something that I do not want to describe because it left me so harmonious and so beautiful. I wish all of you could make this experience yourself. It’s the first time ever that I don’t feel a bit exhausted after a gathering that I organized and that I don’t feel strange when I enter again civilisation. I could delve into another world I did not know before. I feel like woven into a cocoon of soft glittering wool and fairy dust, which went into my brain and through my blood. But in fact, it is a world of real elements, it is the world of water and colours in combination, a world of flowers and waterlilies and mud and I feel just peace in me. It is the first gathering where I have nearly been more inside than outside water or it at least feels like that. I felt like a Neptune baby after Sky waved me gently into the uterus of my mother. After having lost my fear of water I first became a dolphin and a whale and then a mermaid. I could hear real giant whales singing under the water after Geo has waved my floating body to his lungs. I could see and feel the power and spirit of the pinkest waterlilies who rise higher and more gaily forward out of the water than any other flower I ever saw before. I feel more like I spent a week in Hawaii than in an eastern European country. I still see so many colours in my mind and my spirit is so satisfied even though we only had one big heart circle. I felt like I have performed a new life as flowers although we had no Know Talent Show. I feel gratitude and I feel “that’s what friends are for” more than ever. I got to know wonderful new Faeries and Pixies whatever gender they are. I find no words to criticise anything because all was too much paradise for me. We had enough time to balance conflicts, to give the new ones time to find harmony again after overwhelming emotions and we all left as mutual friends. We spent most of the time in total green environment and muddy water, alt-ough it was an urban gathering. We ate great food and felt hospitality although we could hear that some tourists left the space after we – the giggling and each other touching “rats” – have entered the mud pool. But in the end we spread lots of healing Faerie energy to all the people around us and into the waterlilies channels. While floating each other in shimmering and muddy water all started to do the same. From the first moment amid my waterlilies I did not want to be anywhere else in the world. Floating with other Faeries in the most beautiful nature – what else can I wish for?
Mata Hari

Das Gathering in Ungarn war super. Wir haben bewiesen, dass es auch im öffentlichen Raum möglich ist, wenn wir uns an die üblichen Gesellschaftsregeln halten und dass es sogar in einem autoritär geführten osteuropäischen Land möglich ist. Wir habe nun vor, nächstes Jahr erstmals ein Faerie Gathering in Rumänien zu organisieren, in Siebenbürgen: Das “Dracula-Gathering” bei Kronstadt, Transsilvanien, im August 2017

The Gathering in Hungary was great. We have proved that it is possible even in public places, if we stick to the usual social rules and that it is possible even in an authoritarian Eastern European country. We now have plan to organize next year for the first time a Faerie Gathering in Romania, in Transylvania: The “Dracula Gathering” at Kronstadt in August 2017 (before or after the Global Gathering in Fatherstone)

RADIANT LIGHT ! Hommage to EL / Leo

Marea Alta, 8. April 2016: 20:30

Wir alle kannten sie / ihn, ein lebenslustiges leidenschaftliches intelligentes Wesen, wie es nicht viele in der Wiener LGBTI Szene gibt/gab. Wir alle haben ihr/ihm viel zu verdanken. So many became attached to her in the last years. Mit diesem Abend als Hommage in Memory of El konnten wir diesem strahlenden Licht einiges zurückgeben. Zuerst ließ Mata Hari Leo selbst zu Wort kommen und las viele seiner Emails aus 3 Jahren vor, aus denen seine geistigen Leidenschaft für die Radical Faeries sprach, dann las er noch aus seinem Buch „RISE LIKE A FAERIE“ die bleibenden Momente aus seiner Zeit mit EL.

and we were proud to present for the first time ever in Marea Alta!

Mit EL als einer der HauptprotagonistInnen, wie sie/ihn so wohl wenige kannten: Ihr spirituelles Vermächtnis! Enjoooyyyyyy!

Faerie X-Mas: A Good Star Is Born

For all who cannot spend Faerie Xmas time with us in Spa: A Story from Bobby Joe for you:

Three strange guests and a good star –
or:
When a little young faerie was born!

1950s vintage christmas ornaments 3 - Spirit of England - Peter Crawford

 

“The three gentlemen from orient just left the shed in Bethlehem, when an
impressing event happened, which never had been documented:
Just in the moment, when the three horsemen disappeared behind the horizon,
three strange characters approached at the shed .

The first one wore a colored patch-work-coat and stepped to the crib slowly.
Although she was made up like a clown , she looked very, very sad behind her
mask.
Only when she looked the child in it’s eyes, a little smile scurried over her
face.
She touched the child carefully and said:
“I’M THE HAPPINESS !
I’m visiting You, because men have nothing to laugh anymore, they lost all her
joy of living .
Everything got deadly serious ! “
Then, she pulled off her coat and covered the child with it:
This world got cold, terribly cold !
Perhaps, my coat could warm you a little bit .”

Then, a second character arrived to the Child :
She immediately attracted attention with her rushed look and her nervousness.
Only in the moment , when she saw the child , all hectic and rush fell down.
She touched the child tenderly too:
“I’M THE TIME!
I’m not really existing anymore , people say, that time would pass away like a
flight , but they all forgot a big secret:
Time doesn’t elapse easily , time develops, it grows up!
It grows every time, when you share it! “
Then, the time took a hourglass and put it into the crib to the child:
“Time is rare in this world , but it isn’t still too late!
Please take this hourglass as a symbol to have always enough time for yourself and for other . “

Now, the third one appeared at the crib:
Her face was scarred , so as she had been tortured and hit non stop.
But as she went to the child, it seemed so, as all her injuries, caused by this world, healed immediately.
She touched the child lovingly too:born
“I’M THE LOVE !
People say, I may be too valuable for this world ,
So , I’ll be attacked and humiliated frequently .”
During this Words, the love began to cry and three big tears dropped down to the
child:
You have to suffer much in this world, please take my tears, because this is
the water, which can change deserts into blooming gardens “
And in fact, the tears changed into three wonderful Roses .
Then, after presenting her gifts, the three strange characters – the Happiness,
the time and the Love- knelt down to this child of heaven and the child looked
to the three one , as it had understood them .
Suddenly, the love turned back and talked to the other :
“Men will humiliate and deceive this child, it will have to suffer very much
and it’s lifetime will be wasted, because it will love everyone
unconditionally!
But this child will change this world for ever , because it will be serious in
it’s love and happiness and it will spend all it’s time.!” Fairy
YES! -this child – a new young faerie somewhere on this planet……

Spa/Belgium 24.12.2015 Bobby Joe”

Orwells Nightmare or faeries paradise ?

Dear Faeritos and Faeritas,

now we have all these frightening things happening on this planet …
but will we help anyone, drawing a picture of destruction and fear ?

The  old hopi prophecy says – “we are the ones we have been waiting for”. If  destructive forces act on this planet, it is our responsibility to use  the wisdom we already carry inside and not be part of these forces. Let  them run into nowhere. Don’t even give them power by fighting against them. Consistent trust in the inner wisdom and the healing power of  mother nature is an incredible force that will stand like a rock in the  storms of destruction. We do not have to solve the problems of this
world, that we never created. If we simply stand strong in our beliefs  of love, nature, community and spirituality, we will be a lighthouse in  the stormy ocean of today, and ships will be guided towards our shining  light. And if waves crash against us and destroy our foundations, we will know that we have done the best we can.

And that is enough ! Fairly enough.Lame_Deer

Most of the destruction on our beautiful planet is caused by fundamental  beliefs in some mind-created system, stopping us from perceiving and  feeling the world as it really is. It does not really matter, if we fundamentally belief in the djihad or in the capitalist system or whatever. In any case, we do not see and do not feel. We disconnect ourselves from the ancient wisdom that lies within evolution, and that has created us and the world around us. This ancient wisdom cannot be  perceived through the media – it can only be seen if we feel inside  ourselves, if we look into the eyes and hearts of our friends, if we observe nature around us. And there is so much beauty everywhere. We
only see those negative things, spoiled by the news. But look around you
– what is really there ?

My brother and me, lately, had such a wonderful experience running through hannover under the influence of some shamanic medicine, causing our eyes to be open, seeing all the beauty in the people, the creativity they have realized, feeling the power inside our bodies and souls – and on the way, besides so many small wonders we discovered, we came across one poor man listening to the radio in his cart, and independently, we both had the same thought – that little radio is the worst drug to consume. Switch it off, and look, whats really there !

Once we see the beauty, feel the thankfulness for it, feel the potential that lies within our world, express it in our smiles, loving gestures and inner strength, we can inspire others to do the same ! We will do so, even if we just live our lives – it will happen naturally ! We give others, give our community, our friends, and even random strangers more power and more trust to belief in a life following heart and soul, and this energy will be lost for people fighting wars, creating borders, destroying nature. The old world system builds on two things – fear and strict programming of our minds. The new world system will be made of open senses, deeply routed trust in the inner wisdom and strength, and loving community.

Let’s go for it, my friends !!

Remember, we are faeries. We’re here to create a new world, instead of  capitulating in front of the old one.

Waitari

ZUM BUCH: Seit 8 Jahren bereist der Autor die ganze Welt, um bei Gatherings der Radical Faeries teilzunehmen. Er hat nun den ersten Faerie-Roman in Europa über seine persönlichen Erfahrungen, Visionen und Bekenntnisse geschrieben. Sein Vorbild ist Mark Thompson’s The Fire in Moonlight. Er gibt damit tiefe Einblicke in ein faszinierendes Universum, das normalerweise nicht für die Außenwelt sichtbar ist. Er setzt sich in dem Buch aber auch kritisch mit der Medienlandschaft, mit Religionen und Ideologien, dem Umgang mit den Menschen am Rande der Gesellschaft, der Szene und den Umgang der Menschen mit ihrer Umwelt und ihrem geistigen Erbe auseinander. Es ist ein Plädoyer für mehr Freiheit. Liebe und Respekt. Neben diesen sehr persönlichen Texten, die etwa zwei Drittel des Buches ausmachen, bietet das Buch auch englische Beiträge von Faeries wie eilendes Wasser, Treasure, Theoklymenos, Mountain und Mother Goose sowie einem ungarischen Beitrag von Tamas Tzukindra die Weide. Es dokumentiert im letzten Drittel die Vielfalt und das Engagement der Faerie-Bewegung in Östereich, in Zentral- und Osteuropa.

*

The book was written and printed without any financial support. Its written mainly in German Language with english/german/hungarian contributions from some other Faeries in Europe like eilendes Wasser, Theoklymenos, Tamas Tzukindra die Weide, Treasure, Mountain and Mother Goose.

You can have the first 4 copies in the “EisenHERZ” bookstore in Berlin Motzstraße and the first 8 copies exclusive for Vienna in “LöwenHERZ” bookstore in Vienna.

Some voices from the first readers:

“very impressive and touching, haunting, intoxicating! BERAUSCHEND! ” Angie

“UNBESCHREIBLICH!” Julian

“I’ve been reading Mata Hari’s amazing book “Rise like a faerie” and am deeply touched by the very intense sharing of his life experiences in and outside faerie space deep from his heart and soul which I was able to feel very well between each single line. Thanks a lot for spreading your faerie energy into the world! A HIGHLY recommended book!” Theoklymenos

“Manchmal finde ich das Buch so spannend, dass ich es gar nicht aus der Hand legen möchte.” Hermann

„Am besten fand ich wie du die Beziehung Mensch zur Natur beschrieben hast.“

“Die Umsetzung einer Idee in die Tat fand ich total überzeugend und nachvollziehbar.”

“Vieles verstehe ich nicht wegen der vielen Ausdrücke, weil ich bin nicht in diesen Kreisen, ich bin in anständigen Kreisen.”

“Zweifellos sehr gut. Aber ein Affront.” Regina

This was the 2nd “Sound of Faeries Gathering” Hochkönig 2015!

Here is some feedback after the gathering 2015:

3rd Gathering Flyer

“This was a sensational gathering from 1st to last day, the brilliant Faerie spirit, did NOT allow inclement weather in the middle to dampen our spirits, not for a moment! From small numbers at the beginning we grew to 45/50 faeries at times, Faeries came & went. New arrivals brought their beauty & charisma. I’m thinking particularly of Star Dust, Wairua & S. So many beautiful & loving, sharing folk. The No Talent Show revealed again the amazing hidden talents of many of us. Fabulously compared by Angel voiced Pixie & the lip-sinking wonder Theokymenos. Food was exceptional, each meal outshining the previous one. Tom (Cassandra) particularly outshone himself, our one Kitchen Dad. Heart Circles began to heal any rifts in our Gathering & I hope lay foundations for more shared responsibility in future events I was glad to have a mundane day in Salzburg to ease me back into being in London again. Can you believe the most popular gay venue was closed till September, are they MAD!! Buckets of Love to all attendees, my experiences with you will feed me thru the chill winter. I think very valuable stuff happened there which I hope will strengthen the Austrian Radical Faerie Movement. I LOVE YOU ALL!” Mother Goose. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX!!!!!!Hmmmmm!

flowers

“I just want to simply say thank you for all your efforts to bring the Austrian gathering to fruition. It was really great. My best gatherings have been in Austria, partly due to the fact that I’m growing in faerie energy, and also because the environment is so totally amazing. I never would have been exposed to the Austrian Alps had you not organized these gatherings. I know it’s a lot of hard, and at times, seemingly “thankless” work, but I know that we thoroughly enjoyed and valued our time there. So a huge “MERCI” from” Jim from Rural France, Not Paris! XOX

“Thanks again for this amazing gathering !!!! I had a wonderful time there. And now I feel like a faerie :-) Lots of love” Eric/Ursulo

Maria

“I enjoyed our wonderful “2nd Sound of faeries gathering” in Austria with you lovely faeries soooooo much! Once again it’s my pleasure and honor to say “Thank you yery much!” to Mata Hari and Red Rose and the other organizers! You are so fabulous and we sooooo liked to carry you around the fire during the closing ceremony! And I am thankful that all you lovely faeries shared your love and light and your inner treasure and creativity deep from your heart. All together we created this warm and wonderful atmosphere which we had during the gathering!

I’ve been reading Mata Hari’s amazing book “Rise like a faerie” and am deeply touched by the very intense sharing of his life experiences in and outside faerie space deep from his heart and soul which I was able to feel very well between each single line. Thanks a lot for spreading your faerie energy into the world! A highly recommended book!” Theoklymenos

“Thank you so much!!! You made my heart glow again. Kuss” Lala Lametta

REAKTIONEN:

“war mir ein königliches Vergnügen bei der Filmpremiere dabei sein zu dürfen.” Paul Poet

“Einer der besten Filmdokumente des Jahres! Mit vielen genialen Szenen! Viel Dramatik, vor allem am Anfang. Viel Genuss, vor allem am Schluss! Zwei Oscars gibts für den “optischen Eindruck” und die “künstlerische Leitung”. Vielleicht noch ein letzter Feinschliff, und der Film könnte ein Klassiker werden. Dem Premierenpublikum hat es jedenfalls sehr gefallen! Great FUN und auch mit Haltung und Tiefgang! Wir hatten unser eigenes Identities!

One of the best documentary films of the year! With many brilliant scenes! High drama, especially in the beginning. So much pleasure, especially at the end! Two Oscars there for the “optical impression” and the “artistic director”. Perhaps one last finishing touch, and the film could be a classic. The premiere audience liked it in any case very much! Great fun and also with attitude! We had our own identities!” MH

Symbio dt

Die Feen von Hadres (oder Symbiofaerietaxiplasm) ist ein experimenteller Dokumentarfilm über die Radical Faerie Bewegung in Österreich. Ursprünglich eine queere Subkultur aus dem San Francisco der 1970 er Jahre sind die Faeries in Österreich eine neue Gemeinschaft. Das Filmteam hat von 2012 bis 2014 mit ihnen zusammen gearbeitet und dabei ist ein 110 minütiger Film entstanden

Worum geht es in diesem Projekt?

Der Film beschäftigt sich mit queeren Ausdrucksformen im Kino und versteht sich nicht als klassische Dokumentation. Obwohl im Rahmen der Dreharbeiten viele Interviews und Bühnenaufzeichnungen entstanden sind, die auch schon Grundlage von Installationen und Ausstellungen waren, geht der Film anders vor. In enger Zusammenarbeit mit den Faeries hat das Team 7 Kapiteln erarbeitet, die in filmischer Form den Ausdrucksweisen der einzelnen Faeries entsprechen. Der Film stellt sich daher auch weniger als Erzählung dar sondern verzichtet wie die Faeries selbst auf die Gewissheiten, die sich aus etablierten Formensprachen ergeben. Er versteht sich selbst als offene Form, die zur aktiven Teilnahme der Zusehenden auffordert. So wie es in Faerie Gemeinschaften nur Räume der Interaktion und die damit verbundene Notwendigkeit permanenter Aufmerksamkeit und wenige feste Strukturen gibt, handelt es sich auch bei dem Film um das Ergebnis einer kollektiven Interaktion.

Wer die Zielgruppe?

Das Projekt richtet sich an alle die sich für experimentelle Kinoformen, gegenkulturelle Bewegungen oder queere Gemeinschaften interessieren. Und natürlich an alle Faeries und ihre Freund*innen weltweit.

Der Film soll auf queeren Filmfestivals weltweit gezeigt werden. Es müssen noch Musiklizenzen, das ausstehende Audio-Mastering und damit der letzte Schliff in der Postproduktion finanziert werden. Dieser österreichische Film wurde leider nicht vom österreichischen Queerfilm Festival “Identities” ins Programm genommen, daher muss diese Premiere selbst finanziert werden.

Wer steht hinter dem Projekt?

Georg Vogt ist Kultur- und Medienwissenschafter und als Lektor an der Universität Wien tätig. Außerdem ist er als Autor, Herausgeber, Kurator und Filmemacher.

Bastian Petz ist selber Faerie, betreibt kunstbasierte Forschung in Wien und beschäftigt sich seit einigen Jahren mit der internationalen Radical Faerie Bewegung.

Christian Karst ist Kameramann, Cutter und bildender Künstler. Er ist in der Kunst- und Designvermittlung tätig und lehrt in Wien.
