Solstice festivals were an intrinsic part of ancient life. From Stonehenge to Machu Pichu, these rituals celebrated the seasonal cycles of fertility and life’s renewal.

On a road trip through Southern Oregon this weekend I discovered that the ritual continues in modern life too. The Coyote Festival, held June 20th thru 22nd in Paisley, will celebrate the midsummer with 3 days of soak, sound, and sustainability – soak in the hot springs … listen to sounds from an all-star lineup of bands … learn about sustainability in lectures and workshops.

This all happens in the unparalleled serenity of the Oregon Outback For more info and directions browse these the sight listed below. I’ll be there, and I hope you can make it too!
