Work Day Information:

Work Days at Oak Spirit Sanctuary not only help with the upkeep of the land and facilities but are also a great way to get to know other people at OSS. Working together is a great way to build community.

There will be jobs and or projects for everyone regardless of capabilities. Please don’t think because you can’t do heavy lifting or swing an ax there is no way to contribute.

A Work “Day” is the Saturday of a weekend and usually starts around 9:30 am. Since we will be having a Lunar, the work day will end in time for the Year and a Day Class.

Attendees are asked to check in with the work day lead, immediately upon arrival to the property. Be sure to sign the attendance book. (If you are new, ask anyone who has been to OSS before to show you where!)

A main dish is provided by OSS for the lunchtime meal for most work days unless otherwise indicated. If you have food sensitivities, you may wish to bring your own lunch.

Overnight camping is free for the day you participate in a work weekend.

Volunteering at a work day earns a $5.00 digital voucher. Vouchers up to half off the registration price may be used for any OSS ticketed events. (Does not apply to outside events hosted at OSS.) Please remember to sign the attendance book so your attendance is recorded to be sure to get a digital voucher.

Lunar Information:

All are invited to Lunar Gatherings at Oak Spirit Sanctuary. They are family friendly and FREE.

If you are new to OSS, attending a Lunar is a great way to “dip your toe” into events at OSS and visit the land.

Lunars are generally scheduled during the waxing moon phase on a Saturday closest to the upcoming full moon during months OSS is not hosting a larger, ticketed event.

Lunars are a one-day event with an afternoon class from the OSS educational series: “A Year and A Day,” for training and information in basic Neo-Pagan topics.

Class is followed by a pot-luck dinner. Please bring a pot-luck dish suitable for about 10 to 12 people with an ingredients list.

Ritual follows the Pot-Luck dinner

After the ritual, merriment and camaraderie around the evening bonfire complete the night’s observances. Bring your drums and acoustic instruments, and (adult) beverages of your choice.

If you would like to camp overnight, please visit the Camping Information and Registration page for more information. You may also register and pay for camping the day of the Lunar. Simply let OSS personnel know and they will help you out!

Note: OSS welcomes guest presenters. If you, as an individual or as part of a group, that is interested in presenting a community-oriented ritual at OSS, please contact us at info@oakspiritsanctuary.org
