About Wendy

Blurring the line between music, theater and ritual, Visionary Songstress Wendy Rule weaves her dark ambient mystical folk songs along magical paths of storytelling and mythology to create a uniquely beautiful, powerful and transformative live experience.

Wild, wise and empowering, Wendy’s music honors her deep spiritual and magical connection to Nature. Her extraordinary voice and insightful lyrics, combined with her passionate and personal storytelling, invite us to celebrate and connect with our own deep Magic.

Over the past two decades, Wendy has released 10 studio albums and numerous side projects, and has toured the world extensively as both a performer and an inspirational Magical Life Coach and workshop presenter. Alongside her busy touring schedule, Wendy also facilitates the online mystery school “Living a Life of Magic”.

Originally from Melbourne Australia, Wendy relocated to the USA in 2014, and is now living in Santa Fe, New Mexico – allowing her an even stronger connection to her ever growing US fan base, and providing daily access to the wild Nature that inspires her unique and transformational work.

Officer Elections and Business Meeting

Sunday
October 1st
1:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M.

Enchanted Awakenings Event Center
2020 East County Rd F
White Bear Lake, MN 55110

For directions click here

The EHP Officer Elections are due to be held Sunday, 10/1/17 at our Business Meeting starting at 1:00 P.M. As we were unable to certify a quorum at our August meeting, we will try again.

PLEASE NOTE: Both the Chair and Vice Chair positions are not yet claimed by even one candidate. PLEASE consider it! While the Office of Chair could probably be handled remotely, the Vice Chair position, because of the intense interaction with the local staff, is probably best handled by a relative Local. Disagree? Make your case and run anyway!

Current Agenda includes:

  • Wrap-up report for the 2017 gather.
  • Official Ratification of Kiersten Hall as CSO (currently is “Acting CSO”).
  • Reports on the several regional Pride events
  • Discussion and potential action on Community Concerns
  • Officer Elections for 2017/18 Membership Year.
  • Other odds and ends.

To attend “remotely”

If you cannot attend physically but still wish to participate, here’s the remote connection information:
https://hangouts.google.com/call/p7qhxdxtfjagdh45ctlc6kaid4u
Or, if you need to use Skype, please let us know and we can probably arrange that.
Or … we’ve got several cellphones that could accept some call-ins.

And our Facebook Page (Earth House Project of Minnesota) will be staffed for messenger so you can ask for an available phone number, or perhaps if you can listen but don’t have an available mic. Regarding our elections

Our current list of Officer Candidates:

  • Chair: OPEN
  • Vice Chair: OPEN
  • Secretary: Ruth Sheldrake
  • Treasurer: Louise Gastuch
  • Community Services: Kiersten Hall

The Earthhouse Board needs to fill the C.S.O. position

Earthhouse needs your help. Due to a recent resignation, we are without a C.S.O. (Community Service Officer). If you would like the chance to give back to Earthhouse and to help build community, this is an excellent opportunity for you to become more involved in the Earthhouse organization. As C.S.O. you will have many opportunities for community outreach and networking with various Pagan groups throughout the Twin-Cities, Minnesota and even beyond.

If you are interested in filling the vacancy of our 5th elected officer, please email earthhousemn@gmail.com and tell us about your interest.

Come join us and help Earthhouse grow!
