Join the Bulgarian community Threskeia, in their celebration of the autumn equinox. The ceremony will take place at the sacred grounds of Belantash (or Belintash), in the Rhodopes mountains. It is here that markings can be found carved into the mountain surface which some interpret to be an ancient star map.
Experience an ancient Thracian celebration, bringing together age-old customs, clothing, music, chant and rites of an early Indo-European spirituality. The ceremony will be in Bulgarian.
What to Bring: Camping gear and weather appropriate clothing. Attendees are also invited to bring gifts; wine, grapes, figs, seasonal fruits, bread and whatever else they wish to share communally or give as an offering.
