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

Waterlilies Gathering, Hévíz – Hungary, 31 August – 4 September 2016

Waterlily
Dear Faeries!
Szerelem Tündérek szerelem!

 

After the “Sound of Faeries Gathering” in the Austrian Alps 2015, we the organizers Red Rose and Mata Hari also spent some holidays in Hungary to have time for themselves and to relax at the wonderful warm thermal lake of Hévíz. This was such an amazing and healing experience that we had the idea to call for a little gathering there in the year 2016 and to bring some Faerie Energy to an “Eastern” European Country and continue our Radical Faerie/Eurofaerie Visions process here.
We left Hungary on the last train from Hévíz before the stream of refugees flooded the first trains from Budapest to Vienna. The situation in Hungary is more relaxed now than last year. So we believe 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 in this direction.

Healing

So join us for a magical sun-drenched Gathering on the campsite at this beautiful natural thermal lake (the largest in the world) of Hévíz, near Lake Balaton, just West of Hungary not far from the Austrian Border.

See below for more information on the gathering, or feel free to contact Mata Hari for any further questions: faerietreffen@hotmail.com

For a few visuals from the spot, please click on this link
http://www.lakeheviz.com/

heviz-02

The Hévíz gathering is a minimally structured event. We are basically getting together on a campsite to camp (it up?) and to relax and swim in the lake or to explore the nature and culture around or to go to lake Balaton.

There is no real need to register in advance and there are no fees in advance – just show up!
BUT to get sure that you will have a reserved space for your tent at the campsite it is recommended that you send us an email if you come (to know how many would like to come) so that we can reserve your space for your tent definitely.

It would be great if we would be at least 20 Faeries so that we get a reduced group ticket into the thermal lake. The lake is a flower paradise, it is warm with more than 38 degrees. Our dream is to spend the first heart circles ever in warm water surrounded by fragrant water lilies and faeries.

 

Water toy

You can expect structure to arise, however, from the people attending. There will most probably be heart circles, rituals, workshops, and other Faerie activities. Like all gatherings, the content will be created by you and the others attending.

Although there are no fees, there will be costs for you as you will have to travel to get there and, once there, you will have to eat and drink and pay for the campsite plot (just some euros). The food situation will probably be covered by the local restaurants, but we can also improvise and buy some food and prepare it on the campsite. There are enough cheap restaurants with delicious food (also vegetarian) around.
In the campsite there are a few rooms to rent also, but not enough for all Faeries attending (you have to reserve in advance to get one). The rooms are an option for those of you who have special needs or special wants.

The camping area and the thermal lake is not clothing optional.

So, what to bring? Bring a tent and whatever you need to sleep on, and whatever else you need for camping. If you can, bring other Faerie things (beautiful décor, outfits, beach games, musical instruments, ritual objects, etc.)

Campsite

HOW TO GET THERE?

You need to get to Vienna, Graz, Budapest or Bratislava by train, bus or airplane. Then you can continue either go by train, car or bus to Heviz (via Balaton).
https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zzhoexBxSApY.k6ErXblkFp70&msa=0&ll=46.912751%2C20.467529&spn=6.056416%2C14.27124&z=7

Near Balaton there is also a little airport for flights from German Cities and Russia.

The timetables of the trains we will announced here soon.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information. Or just show up at any time, even without telling me. We envision the gathering to be completely open and stress free – a real campsite paradise gathering where we can explore Hungary and bring Faerie Magic.

WHEN?
31 August – 4 September 2016

WHERE?
http://www.castrum-group.hu/de/heviz

 

Prices for the Campsite are:

Exchange rate: 1 Euro ~ 314,24 Ft

You have to pay per Person (1.600 Ft) and per plot (30-40 m2 = 2.000 Ft)

On a small plot we can put about 4 tents

Informations about the Campsite:

The campsite and the pension lies near the thermal lake (300m), the guests can wear only a bathrobe when they walk over to the lake. The overflow channel of the lake, which offers a fascinating sight with the pink, purple and white lotuses, crosses the campsite.

The two costs are joined by a romantic lovely wooden bridge, from where you can see the Mediterranean fishes swimming between the colorful water-lilies. The nature reserve can boast of its unique birds and plants, which give a lifelong experience and breathe a magic atmosphere.

The numbered plots in the campsite, which have the possibility to join to the electric network, partly to the drink water, are separated by green hedges.

On the campsite area a familiar 10 room pension was built, it is the nearest accomodation to the Héviz thermal lake. You can hear the song of protected birds.

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 las Mata Hari aus seinem Buch „RISE LIKE A FAERIE“ die bleibenden Momente aus seiner Zeit mit EL und ließ dann vor allem Leo selbst zu Worte kommen 

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.

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.
