The Oracle, News from Nippur

View onlineThe Oracle 
not so monthly newsletter
Hello Beautiful People,
This is the 3rd edition of our newsletter. Since our last correspondence so many things have happened. We’ve said goodbye to some and welcomed others. There are over 20 fulltime residents and a few part time ones too!

We have planted flowers all over the property and in sunny spots we planted flowers and veggies. The ones planted last year are really taking off too. The tiger lilies are so tall!
We have plans for a flower bed and new sign at the bottom of Bobcat Ridge, where our property begins.
If you are into digging in the dirt, we could use your help!
Email and please put digindirt in subject line.

Magick was afoot at Beltane Gathering 2022. The event was a success in every way. Old friends made new friends and new friends became family. Our handfasting was a beautiful celebration of devotion and community. Read more about Beltane and see all the pics below.

We had some birthday milestones with Scotty turning 50 and Lucas celebrating 30 on the same day Ryan turned 50. We had Dirty 30 and Filthy 50 “FestiviTitties”. 
Brittany and I share a birthday, June 1st. Our week long festivities began with a tea party and ended with BBQ.  

One of our new(er) residents, RT has organized a Nippur camp at To The Moon – a TN burn. The theme is Alice in Wonderland so we are turning a tiny house into an interactive experience highlighting the 6 impossible things. We (and by we I mean Shantel) are also making 4 back pack puppets. Each  represents an element! Wait til you see them!

And of course, we are busy getting ready for Abundance Gathering 2022. We have world class drummers like Bolokada Conde, members of Inanna, Sisters in Rhythm and more on the line up. Get all the details and buy your tickets below.

Thank you for supporting our community! Come visit sometime soon!
 Always Grateful,

Nippur T-shirts have arrived!!

Beltane Gathering 2022 Recap
What a Weekend!
Beltane Gathering 2022 was such a success. Friends travelled from Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, the Carolinas and Kentucky to celebrate with us. We hope this becomes a tradition!
There were workshops, all night drum circles, a bouncy house, amazing food, face painting, dancing, fire, ritual and so much more.
Only thing missing was a bear suit.

Crowning of May Queen and the Maypole Dance
This ancient tradition was celebrated by our ancestors.
We are honored to carry it on.
Larken was crowned our beautiful May Queen.
There was a mead mishap and no one seemed to know how to do The Maypole Dance.

The Handfasting Ceremony
We declared our dedication to community and each other in the most beautiful way
There was rain, a last minute change of venue, lots of loving support and a Bloody Mary bar.
And I was only an hour late.
