Welcome to Coph Nia
A Mystical Gathering for Gay and Bisexual Men
Coph Nia is a 5 day outdoor alternative spirituality festival for gay, bi, queer and questioning men. Held at an interfaith sanctuary in Artemas, PA, Coph Nia is open to long-time practitioners and new seekers of a wide range of spiritual paths including Wicca, Paganism, Heathenry, Druidism, Shamanism, Thelema, Ceremonial Magick and more. Sponsored by the Ordo Aeternus Vovin, an initiatory Thelemic order for gay and bisexual men, Coph Nia features vendors, concerts, rituals, workshops, nightly bonfires, dancing, drumming, chanting, signing and many social events including our annual Masked Ball & Sensual Feast.
During this magickal time, gay, bisexual, queer and questioning men will create a pagan town where we work powerful magick together, worship the Gods, drum and dance around the fire, chant, sing and be who we are at our core. We'll leave behind the bar attitudes and judgements that fragment our community and join together as community of spiritually minded men who love men. We'll explore our spiritual natures and our place in the universe through numerous workshops, rituals, concerts and social events. And at the end of Coph Nia, we'll return to the larger community changed and empowered, ready to minister to the larger gay community. Won't you join us?
Mark your calendars: Coph Nia 2015 August 5, 2015 to August 9, 2015 at Four Quarters Interfaith Sanctuary in Artemas, PA
During Coph Nia 2012, our musical guests, KC Wilkerson and Nathan Bowers, delighted the attendees with an impromptu duet. To help get a feel for what happens at Coph Nia, check out the guests and programming from our past events.
A previous festival at Our Haven set up a beautiful glow stick labyrinth prior to Coph Nia 2012. They left it for us to use as a gift. The practice of meditatively walking a labyrinth is a very old spiritual practice.
