When I return from WicCan fest, I'll be attending two events on 6/20 from 10-2pm. The first is at the Antioch Lapidary club at 425 Fulton Shipyards Road. We did this event last year and it was soo much fun we're doing it again. It's only $5 for a booth space and it's a great experience for any rockhound. They serve a nice BBQ lunch, too.

6/20 part two will be the Artists' Reception from 2-4 pm at the Antioch Historical Society on 4th Street. I will have two pieces in this show. Both events are FREE to attend.
Good news! I'll be vending amber, bronze & jet at WicCan Fest near Toronto, Canada June 10-14. After that, I'll be at Ravenwood 25 on Mt. Tamapais just north of SF the 4th of July weekend.
I'll also be presenting and performing at both of these events. The Canadians like me so well that I'm the opening act at the Satyrday night concert. All the kiddies I used to sing "dirty ditties" to are all grown up now and want to hear them again.

summertime

Been soo busy this summer, I've hardly had time to write anything. 
In May, I went to South Beach with my sister who turned 60 this year, too, and then I visited my goddess child and my grand goddess child in CT and went to Rites of Spring, too. Kulgrinda was one of their guests this year, and it was really fun to hang out with my homies at an American pagan fest. Inija, Valdas (her brother), Zemyna and Vetra were there, and I met Indre (Inija's eldest daughter) and her husband who drove out from NY to pick them up. My friend, Jeff, came out from Boston to pick me up and we drove to Della's for a fine Memorial Day cookout.
Last weekend we had a 60's party for the Geminis (including Capt. Patt who turned 60 6/7). We rented a 5 bedroom house on Clearlake and partied like it was the 60's and had a most psychedelic time. Next weekend I'll be joining the Druids on my birthday at dawn for a sunrise summer solstice rite at Inspiration Point  on Grizzly Peak in Berkeley, and then I'm off to vend at the Antioch Lapidary Club's sale/swap event from 10-4 on 6/21. They're having a BBQ lunch at noon thirty for $5. In addition to my amber, I'll be taking be taking some small emeralds and mexican onyx ashtrays and mushrooms.
June 28th, I'm attending a high tea & vintage fashion show in Brentwood from noon-3 pm. Please contact me if you're interested in joining us. Tickets are $22 and include all you can eat & drink and the show.
On July 3rd I fly to Washington, DC for a Capitol Fourth of July and then leave on 7/6 for Vilnius and this year's ECER. I'll be staying in Lithuania until 8/5 and visiting Kaunas and our village. If any of you are planning on coming, please let me know. Inija has reserved rooms at the "Guest House" one block from her home in Vilnius. I've stayed there many times and it's as nice as the hostels we stayed at in Odense, and less than half the price. Lithuania is downright cheap compared to the rest of Europe, and this is your chance to see our village and temple.

Kulgrinda East Coast appearance

Hello, everyone!
I am pleased to announce that Kulgrinda will be at Rites of Spring this May 21-26 at a site near Lee, MA. It’s about 60 miles north of Bristol, CT. Info at www.earthspirit.com.
From the website:
This year we are excited to introduce you to some special guests from Europe who we have met through Andras Corban Arthen’s international networking on behalf of EarthSpirit.
Inija Trinkuniene is the matriarch of the Romuva community which practices the traditional pre-Christian religion of Lithuania. Inija will be offering both workshops, and performances with several members of her family who are also attending and form the group Kulgrinda.
Vetra Trinkunaite, Inija’s daughter has been touring internationally as a solo artist and will offer at least one performance at Rites of Spring.
 
Also, I'll be flying in from California to Bristol, CT to visit my goddesschild (who can't attend), so I really need a ride to and from the Rites.
More than willing to overpay for gas/expenses. Last time I attended was last century, so in case I can't find a ride, can anyone tell me how to take public transportation from Bristol to Lee or Great Barrington?

Thanks, and I'll be posting info on this year's ECER in Vilnius July 8-11 soon.
Prudence, Romuva Ambassadress

ECER in Vilnius


Dear friends,

We are making plans for the next European Congress of Ethnic Religions meeting this summer, in Vilnius, where Romuva will be hosting the event. The dates are from Tuesday, 8 July to Friday, 11 July (arrive on 7 July).

The theme of the conference will be “Mother Earth, Unite Us.” The plan for the first day is to have the meeting at the Lithuanian Parliament, where we will have opportunities to talk with members of the Parliament and also from the news media about the state of the ethnic religions of Europe. Of the remaining 3 days, we would like to dedicate one to a conversation about developing a plan of action to realize the goals and the mission of the ECER. Another day will be for presentations and speeches about the different religions which are members of the ECER. The remaining day will be dedicated to a tour of important pagan holy places in Lithuania.

Romuva will be arranging the places where we will stay – hotels, hostels, and also making arrangements for food, etc. We will let you know as the plans become more definite, but we wanted you to to have the dates and location as soon as possible, so you can start making your travel plans.

Please let us know if you are planning on attending the meetings, and also approximately how many people will be coming from your group.
