About the Event

The Second Annual TOLIS Leadership Summit

Creating & Sustaining Community Through Challenging Times


The Summit is scheduled to take place July 16th through the 18th, 2021 and will be an "online/in-person leadership retreat". We will use Zoom to connect groups and/or individuals that are Zooming in from all over.

Naturecentric Spiritual Teachers from various communities across the USA will share Leadership Teachings throughout the weekend. Each Keynote Workshop Teacher will present their topic, then facilitate a small group breakout session, followed by reflection with the larger group of participants on Satu.

We invite you to gather with others in your geographic location to form a physical small group (following local social distancing practices as applicable). Even if you are not available to gather with your group physically, we will use ZOOM technology and group your community together in private breakout session(s) for group sharing experiences as desired.

You can also join by yourself from your own space to retreat in connection with others gathering online. We will set up small groups each workshop for reflections and these can be with others you are already working on projects with or with new people you meet through this event.

Saturday evening will feature our new Bardic Elder Circle. It will be MC'd by Featured Bardic Elder, Denis Merrill and our tech Teach, Joshua Vanderhof. Bardic Elder line up TBA. Sign ups will be taken prior to the event in the Facebook Event and during the event in the participant chat. After the Featured Bardic Elders have all shared the event will morph into an Open Mic Bardic Circle. At that same time our break out room will open for a Sharing Circle hosted by Jessie Starr. 

Take a retreat with time to reflect and replenish with our association of naturecentric spiritual practitioners and groups. Lean back into Sacred Living and connect with a wider community of Leaders. 

Find support and learning about leadership from wherever you are.


For this second year, a contribution of at least $22 = retreat ($11 minimum) with membership ($11) is the basic requirement to attend. *

We encourage everyone to sincerely consider donating more to help establish and grow our association. We intend to provide our members to access to the recordings of Teachings at some later time, once we have figured that part out. (Estimated value of electronic retreat showcasing 18-20 Elder Leaders / Teachers with over 20 hours of programming = $300 - 500) 

*Member Groups of the TOLIS have "blanket membership" for their members and the $11 basic membership fee not required, just the $11 for the event and agreement with our ethics.

 “Every moment a maenad and bacchant!”

Michael Agee grew up talking to trees in KY. He moved to Oregon in 1986, when the Occult section at Powell’s Books, Portland was a single thin shelf and would-be buyers more nervous than if it were porn. He joined the Order of the Sacred Band gay men’s spirituality group, the Oregon Pagan Council, and supported Circle of the Dance and SisterSpirit. Michael co-founded two 501(c)3s, The Nine Houses of Gaia and Other Worlds of Wonder, serving on their boards and in ritual through the NW Fall Equinox Festival and SunFest summer solstice festivals. He is co-founder and owner of Ffynnon, a 75 acre forested retreat property for spiritually minded people aka ‘Pagan land’ (or like we in the TOLIS like to say, ‘Land Sanctuary’), near Vernonia, OR. “Ffynnon; Where Art, Spirit, and Nature Meet”. In addition to all this he is keeper and curator of the Sheila Redman Goddess Collection and founder of the Pacific Northwest Pagan History Project. Michael says, “Every moment a maenad and bacchant!”
