Sacred Harvest Festival 2017 - Tribal Reunion, 20 Years

Sacred Harvest Festival 2017

"Tribal Reunion, 20 Years"

Monday Aug. 7th - Sunday Aug.13th

Harmony Tribe is celebrating its 20th year of providing spiritual and educational opportunities for our community. Over this time we have grown and restructured, becoming a 501c3, tax-deductible non-profit group. Throughout this journey we examined our values, processes, and vision, and together made a conscious choice for our future. We have touched and celebrated the life passages of thousands of people, and seen a whole generation of young people mature and enter our spiritual community and gently helped them pass into the next. We have hosted many nationally known guests and have provided a place for sacred ceremony and meaningful ritual for families.

This year we celebrate our rich history, welcoming back guests and tribe members from years past, and adding to a growing base of new friends. You are invited to the Reunion, as Pagans, nature worshipers, and their children and elders come together once again for a week of joy, fellowship, and learning.

We are your People, ... Join Us !

Discover Atchingtan, the nature preserve you will love! 

Located about 90 minutes North of Minneapolis, nestled among pristine secluded woodlands between Finlayson, Mn and Lake Milacs.

"This week we will be connecting with the energies of nature, the Sun and Moon, the wind and trees, the rhythm of the earth and fire. As we walk through festival, we are constantly co-creating sacred space with our breath, our movement, our words and our deeds. Remember this. Be quiet in quiet spaces, join in with dance, sing the songs, laugh, play and encourage one another. Sacred Harvest Festival is a place to build and strengthen community. Whether this is your first festival or one of many, we believe you will experience the “magic” that happens when those who honor the Earth and her creatures, gather and walk together on the land in love, trust and with respect."

...from our 2001 Village Guide: "Magic All around you"

Bonnie Hanna-Powers

Bonnie is a second generation pagan from Paganistan. In an effort to live her spirituality, she has spent time studying the earth in several forms: gardening and landscaping, wildcrafting food and herbs, and healing herself and others with the practice of herbal medicine. She finished a program in Herbal Studies from MCTC in MN, and, in 2016, a 1 year apprenticeship from the Plant Traditions School of Medicine with Bonnie Kreckow in Winona MN.

 

Her day job is as a Farmers Market Coordinator, and she runs a small herbal business called Bumble & Bramble Herbals with her business partner and fellow herbalist Brigid Cisek. Bonnie believes that everyday acts of living can be part of earth worship, and she is excited to be able to share some of what she has learned for the benefit of the community.

Mami Wata

Named in honor of the African mermaid spirit, Mami Wata is a group of female drummers from Madison, WI who play music from West Africa. They will offer a workshop Friday morning, and perform a concert Friday evening!

Mami Wata, our namesake, is venerated in many parts of Africa as the Mother of Waters. She is often depicted as a beautiful mermaid, complete with a tail, and is associated with rivers and all flowing waters. It is our hope that, in Her honor, our music may flow like Mami Wata's beautiful waves. Members of the group have studied in Guinea and in the US from teachers such Bolokada Conde, Famoudou Konate, Mamady Keita, Karim Koumbassa, Mandjou Mara, Fode Bangoura, Shawn Barry, Paddy Cassidy, and Helen Bond.

He is a co-founder of Darshana Ritual Theatre and creator of the very first (neo) Pagan community Gamelan. He has lived for a summer in South India in 2010, and also in Bali in 2016 where he studied Balinese music and culture. His current studies are in the ancient mystery traditions and plant alchemy.
