“There are darknesses in life and there are lights,

and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights.”

 +

“Once again…welcome to my house. Come freely.

Go safely; and leave something of the happiness you bring.”

 +

“I am longing to be with you, and by the sea, where we can talk together freely and build our castles in the air.”

(Bram Stoker)

 

CALL+

Well babies
don’t you panic

By the light of the night
It will all seem al right

Don’t get strung out
By the way I look.
Don’t judge a book by its cover.
I’m not much of a man by the light of day,
But by night I’m one hell of a lover

+

Thrill Me

Chill Me

Fulfill Me!

+

 

Let me

Show you around, maybe

Play you a sound.

You look like you’re

Pretty groovy.

Hey, Hey!

 I’m just a sweet Matavestite

From Transfaeriesexual, Transylvania!

Bram Stoker wrote his gothic horror novel Dracula in 1897, using Transylvania as a setting. With its success, Transylvania became associated with vampires. Since then it has been represented in fiction and literature as a land of mystery and magic.

+

In the film The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Tim Curry played a character that comes from “Transexual Transylvania.”

We will celebrate a Tribute!

Therefore, the themes of the gathering reveal themselves as

darkness and lights, myths and passions.

The landscape diversity of Transylvania is unique in Europe: here there is a cohesion of extensively cultivated areas, “intact” villages and traditional agriculture, as it existed in other parts of Europe in the 19th century. In addition to the rich flower meadows, wolves and bears are also found in the relatively low regions of Transylvania.

16426142_10158312745315089_5378329161503618561_n

(We will buy our delicious food and farm products manly from the village and cook it in our house kitchens)

16426236_10158285113355089_6905520972801241932_n

As we are in a rather historian Village and we respect the traditions of the local people we will not show nudity outside of our gardens.

16388174_10158312744220089_5492776688095098725_n

But in our wild Mother Nature there will be all Faerie Playfulness that you always wanted to create. And there will be: Laughter and Tears. Things that can never be foreseen or forgotten! Tours & workshops & Heart Circles & shows & hikes into the Nature and into the Mountains and maybe …

we will see a real Bear!

Your Activities

 You can expect structure to arise, however, from the people attending.

You can also expect an Introduction talk to new faeries, auction if possible, a No Talent Show, rituals in the wood, tours around, bikes and hikes and even HORSERIDES!

Location

16387194_10158312748130089_4816543286730549551_n

2 houses for about 20 people have a big common garden, where another 10 tents for camping can be put. This will be our gathering point. The 3rd house is about 10 minutes away. We only have 3 and 4-person bedrooms and there are warm showers in the house.

A 4th house for another 10 people will hopefully be renewed for us till August 2017. Therefore, we will have about 15 faeries beds available plus 5 in sleeping bags on the ground, the others would have to camp either in the garden – or in the village or in the wild creek nearby and find the one or the other who rent private. These can be arranged.

16425838_10158312745995089_6889374179116964903_n

There is also a small mountain lodge for 4 persons to stay about 15 kilometers away, which can be reached only by horse-drawn carriages.
