Diana on the Radio and Online–

CONFERENCES AND FESTIVALS
Brushwood Folklore Center, Sherman, NY
I will be at the Sirius Rising Festival at the beautiful Brushwood Folklore Center near Lake Erie in New York. Lorrie Wood and I will take advantage of the opportunity to do an Oracular Intensive with workshops in the skills covered in The Way of the Oracle.
Clark Kerr Campus, UC Berkeley, CA
The Mythopoeic Society is a wonderful melange of scholars, writers, and readers of fantasy, focusing on but not limited to the work of J.R.R.Tolkien, C.S.Lewis, and Charles Williams. Having been a great fan of all three since I was in College, I was delighted to discover the Society when I was in grad school, soon after it was founded, and have been a member ever since. The Society has held several Mythcons at this site, which is comfortable and attractive. The program consists of papers and panels, with plays, concerts and other entertainments in the evenings. It’s small, but a lot of fun.
Santa Cruz Mountains
This is a women-only festival at a YMCA camp in the coastal forest. Participants sleep in cabins, and food is provided. Workshops and rituals. I’ll be talking about the significance and symbolism of trees in Northern European and other traditions and how to work with them.

October 20-21, San Francisco
I’ve been invited to be a speaker at this year’s Earth Medicine Alliance Conference in San Francisco. The theme will be “Celebrating Ancestral Wisdom”.
Memorial Day Weekend
Hyatt Regency Santa Clara, Santa Clara, CA
Baycon is the annual gathering for Northern California science fiction and fantasy fans. It is one of the largest and longest-running SF cons, and has been a tradition for my family since it began. I’m planning to attend next year as well, especially since Lois McMaster Bujold, one of my favorite authors, will be Guest of Honor.
Trothmoot is the annual meeting of the Troth, the Asatru organization that has been so important to me for the past twenty years. In 2013 it will be in Southern California, and I’m looking forward to attending with Hrafnar kindred.
