Something Royal is happening in Windsor.. And the media will be in full throttle about it. If you like to get away from it..and escape to one of the Royal parks in London.. and hang out with like-minded Pagan & Magical folks.. this is the event for you.
Come dressed in your flower crowns..and Horned head-dresses..or just outdoor attires.. Bring your ground sheets, food, drinks and picnic.. Bring your sun lotions & insect sprays.. Flasks of coffee & Tea..or cash for the cafe where you can get snacks..
Free carpark & toilet facilities in Richmond Park.
Hopefully we’ll spot some deer too..
- Saturday 19th May 2018.
- Duration: 12pm to about 4pm.
- Venue : Richmond ParkThe plan (approx):1. We’ll meet at Richmond station foyer coffee shop.. (12pm). Take bus 371 to Richmond Gate. (stop at `American University’ then 3 min walk).2. At Richmond Gate (1.00pm), we’ll walk up to `Pembroke Lodge’ (car park/ cafe/ toilets) ..gather others coming by cars..then walk on to a spot for picnic. If you are coming by cars, you can park here and wait for us to arrive ..Safety with Deer / wild life:Observe a safe distance from any wild animals like Deer. This is NOT rutting season so they are usually not aggressive…But be safe. Also be less intrusive..and not spook them. After all Richmond park is a wild life sanctuary for them.
Historical note: We first ran a `Stag Watch’ event for Hern’s Tribe on 29th October 2012–
Bright Blessings . `May Hern protect us’

Have you heard the Hern-call? Here it is – Stag Lord (Deer) rutting.. gruntin, scratching the ground, squirting his semen to mark his territory ..herding the female deers together (he can never have enough of them in his harem!)..and occasionally locking horns (antlers) with intruders (other Stags) and chasing them out (that’s in my next video).
Enjoy this one.. no gimmicks.. no flashy edits…The idea was to quietly capture the moment… so you can watch and experience it. as if you were there.
I am planning to have a few `Stag watch’ events in Richmond Park over the next coming weeks.. (did that few years ago). So if you are interested, watch this blog.. Or subscribe / follow mt tweets @ManiQuantum so you’ll know when I announce those dates/ times.. (It will be short notice ..with just few days notice ..or even 1).
You can also join my `London Woodland Pagans Meet-up group’ and keep an eye on my `spontaneous’ events.. 🙂
(Am sort of stepping away from doing long term planned events now.. 10 yrs of it is enough.. I seek more spontaneity and freedom.. to have quick plans, change plans.. So yeap.. follow my tweets…:-)

A spontaneous outdoor event.. with less than 1-day notice!
It’s the rutting season for Deer all around the country (where dominant Stags round up female deer, and fight-off other stags!). We’re off to Richmond park for a careful and non-intrusive watch of this..and to experience the energies.. all under a bullish Taurean the full moon!
No mess…no fuss event. Just meet us by Richmond Station coffee shop between 3 pm- 3.15pm (we can’t wait after that), or get to Richmond Gate of the Park by 3.30pm… Look for Mani & Marcus (and Ruby the dog!).
Wrap up warm.. it’s cold..it might get wet. and you’ll enjoy it if you bring your own hot drink in a flask!
No ritual.. just a friendly walk & conversations …starting at Dusk .. We’ll end the walk latest by 7pm at Richmond Gate..
come join us and tune into the wild energies of Rutting Stags! It’ a must for every Pagan who worships a Horned God! 🙂
