Therefore, this year we move to Aspects of the Mother. This will include talking circles, sharing, gathering and growing, art process project and ritual. Great foods from local farmers and soo sooo very much nurturing...after all that is what the Mother does best. Please keep your eyes, your ears and your hearts tuned for more information as we gather up the pieces to make this again an amazing experience. All women are welcome whether you were here for the last two events or not. Bring a friend. Join the circle. Together we are strong. Together we are awesome!! Meals will include light snack Friday evening, 3 meals Saturday and Breakfast Sunday with leftovers for lunch or before you head home. And yes we do have an amazing cook lined up for this. A love offering for the cook would be greatly appreciated. Sunday we finish up around noon and if you wish you may join Hawkwind in our monthly community Sweat Lodge.
