52 people showed up from all around the world. And the Rains came down. And the Campfire was not drowned, though there was a Moat surrounding it. We now have 27 words for rain. But still, people were glad they were there, glad they saw each other.

The third Walking the Thresholds gathering will be held at Four Quarters Farm on June 15-18, 2000.
The Starlight Paths are the paths we walk as otherkin….neither in the bright light of the Sun nor the Darkness of the Deeps….the paths where there are no absolutes, and the Thresholds between the realities are thin….
And just what is going to be happening?
Workshop scheduling is still ongoing, and will be announced closer to the gathering. If you have a workshop you would like to see, or that you feel you might want to present, please drop us a line at: [email protected]!
Other events that have been known to occur at WtT have in the past included: drumming and bardic storytelling around the fire, workshops on such diverse topics as Reiki, Magickal Theory, “So, You are Awake….Now What?”….as well as a main ritual that is planned on-site. (We have some ideas, but suggestions are welcome) We would like to try to keep the focus on the Starlight Paths, if possible.
So we have all this…but what does it mean?
How have these starlit paths influenced who you are, what you do…how you relate with the world at large? How have they affected your life? Why not explore these questions with us and see where we go from the point of realization.
So, have any details?

Thresholds 1999 was graced with a horde of Dragons. Hope they can fly by this year also and bring their friends!
Sadly, Eyovah will not be returning. We will be doing something in his memory – sharing memories of him poetry, anecdotes, pictures, etc., whatever people who loved him want to do. There will be a memorial service that people can go to about 1-1/2 hours away from 4QF at Rivendell. Rides will be arranged from 4QF to Rivendell and back for all who want to go.
