Mission Statement
Fey Abbey is a gathering place for a festive group of individualists to enjoy each others company and work on projects together. The Abbey is an environment used for the arts, fellowship, entertainment, learning, and creating.
We encourage each other to reach our physical and mental maximum potential through exploration, inspiration, and fun. The Abbey was founded in 1997.

Past events include: Dinner parties, house concerts, prophet's club, poker games, birthdays, liberty video, garden parties, brew sessions for mead and beer, hiking trips, costume making, permaculture workshop, campaign kickoff, music nights, revelry, dancing, henna, gardening, game night, yoga, burning man planning and training sessions, etc.

Geeks, libertarians, polyamorists, artists, ravers, scientists, musicians, extropians, lovers, activists, architects, writers, actors, deviants, burners, futurists, couples, singles, brewers, gardeners, and a many other sorts of people.
Most members are in their 20s or 30s, though ages range from 0-80 depending on the event.
We have all kinds of people who visit the Abbey from a variety of overlapping social groups. Most are secular, though there are some pagans and a few other religions represented. Nice people with various world views and aestetic styles can mingle and enjoy each other. If you are uncomfortable with people whose lifestyle choices are different than yours then you will likely not feel comfortable. Most of the events at the Abbey are by invitation only. Some have just a few people, others have a couple hundred people.
The common attributes we share:
- The desire to carefully consider all of the energy inputs and outputs in our lives.
- Tolerance for others varied cultural choices and for cultural exploration.
- The desire to live life fully and to create rather than simply consuming.
- Intelligence, kindness, optimism.
- The desire to learn and to improve oneself in all areas of life and to support the development of others.
- Healthy lifestyles. Healthy minds and bodies.

The Abbey

Abbey: In medieval times an abbey was a place of peace and serenity established in the center of the city. People would come to the abbey to obtain education, hospitality, community and healing in the physical, mental and spiritual realms.

fey adj.
1. a. Having or displaying an otherworldly, magical, or fairylike aspect or quality: “She's got that fey look as though she's had breakfast with a leprechaun” (Dorothy Burnham).
b. Having visionary power; clairvoyant.
c. Appearing touched or crazy, as if under a spell.
2. Scots.
a. Fated to die soon.
b. Full of the sense of approaching death. Foreboding doom.

feyness n. Word History: The history of the words fey and fay illustrates a rather fey coincidence. Our word fay, “fairy, elf,” the descendant of Middle English faie, “a person or place possessed of magical properties,” and first recorded around 1390, goes back to Old French fae, “fairy,” the same word that has given us fairy. Fae in turn comes from Vulgar Latin Fta, “the goddess of fate,” from Latin ftum, “fate.” If fay goes back to fate, so does fey in a manner of speaking, for its Old English ancestor fge meant “fated to die.” The sense we are more familiar with, “magical or fairylike in quality,” seems to have arisen partly because of the resemblance in sound between fay and fey.

The Abbey logo is a trisklion. The trisklion is a very old symbol. It is sometimes called Triskele.
It is present near the main entrance of Newgrange in County Meath, Ireland. Newgrange is thought to be the oldest building in the world, said to have been built 5300 years ago, 1000 years before Stonehenge.

Triskele literally means "three-legged," and Celtic literature and history abounds with the culture's fascination with the number three. Most references are religious or spiritual, pagan by modern definition.
- Earth, Fire, Water
- Earth, Sea, Sky
- Truth, strength, fulfillment
