to the Starwood Village! Like Brigadoon, we spring from the rolling
hills of Brushwood for a brief, but memorable time. Old friendships are
instantly renewed while new friends quickly become old friends too. Despite
our myriad backgrounds, we come together in peace and harmony for six
days under the Chattaqua sun to celebrate community, our love for the
Earth, love for one another and for ourselves.
From here get a birds eye view of our village from the Village

Here's what some of our guests have said about life in the Starwood Village:
Thaelo Blue (e-group list moderator when asked what Starwood
...Next summer you will be transformed by the most incredible pagan
university/hippie circus known to mortals as Starwood. Cavort thru the
woods, swim in the pool, laze around naked in the hottub, eat yummy food
at the Cafe or Phil's, attend many uplifting workshops, groove out to
the great concerts, dance around the bonfire every night, listen to the
sound of the drums fill your soul and match the rhythm of your heart and
then after you've been so high on the vibes all week, experience the ultimate
rush of the BIG BONFIRE on Saturday night. Don't expect to sleep very
much or have enough time to do everything you want to. Meet people and
fall in love. Starwood's got it all!
There is only one bad thing about Starwood......
LEAVING to go HOME again!!! (yep, ask anybody, that part REALLY
sucks!!! I always cry.)
You will spend every day the next year savoring your Starwood
memories and planning for the trip next July. So welcome to the Starwood
list... we'll be looking for you at Brushwood next summer.
One of my favorite things to do at Starwood is to stand at the edge
of the Fairy Woods at night and look down on all the lights in the "village."
People are milling about and you can hear the drums and see the bonfire
in the roundhouse. I feel such a sense of peace and connectedness looking
at this scene. I can feel the ties that extend into the past and into
the future from that moment. It is like nothing else I've ever felt.
I love getting out of the hot tub in the wee hours of the morning,
wrapping myself in my long black wool cloak, putting up the hood to
keep from chilling, and then wandering through the village with stars
over head, the sound of drums slightly muffled by the night and just
"being" part of something unique and wonderful as I head back
to my "home" in the Fairy Woods...
Meet these and other Starwood guests, past, present and future when you...
