SUMMER SPARK IGNITE

July 7-10, 2016
Ben Lomond, CA
This is your invitation to participate in something extra-ordinary. This is your invitation to a challenge, a rite, and an ordeal. This is your invitation to an event that is unusual, magical, and profound. Too often we get wrapped up in our day-to-day and feel disconnected, stuck, lost, or at a loose end. We've allowed worries to chase us around. We've lost contact with the beauty that we are. We need to escape, to get outside. We need to experience ourselves fresh and unmediated. We need to reclaim what animates us, what brings us joy, what give us a clear sense of ourselves, of our place, and of our purpose. We need a method, an approach, a ritual, to shake us up, to wake us up, to transform our experience. We need an ecstatic fire circle ceremony. Our format is both simple and ancient. We come to together under the stars, surrounded by trees, to sing, speak, dance and drum around a fire for three nights until dawn. The cool night air, the mountains, the trees, the sound of the drums, the warmth of the fire, the eyes of our friends, conspire to bring us back into our bodies, fully present, breaking down our resistances, letting us be ourselves more fully. Together we journey into the night, playing, dancing and singing our hearts' song. Together we hold this space as sacred, allowing it to be the crucible that brings us into contact with the mysterious, that bubbles spontaneously up from within and without. We open ourselves up to the power of the moment to connect us again with places of deep truth. This is not a meditation retreat, it is an ecstatic advance! It is an injection of spirit, of energy, of connection to source. Will you join us for this ritual?
Ignite is a four day and three night fire circle ceremony, in the Santa Cruz mountains, near Ben Lomond, CA, with dancing, drumming, singing, ritual, workshops and community. This is your invitation to join us for fun, laughter, magic, transformation and connection. Should I bring a drum? Yes, please! Bring your hand drum, your didgeridoo, shakers, bells, any instrument to play in support of our ritual. We're not performing songs; music is our magical container. Do I need special skills? This work does not require any particular belief or training. We honor people of all traditions and paths or none. This is magic created spontaneously by us the participants. Each person brings a valued contribution. So bring an offering, whether it is your music, your dance, your story-telling, your poetry, your costumes, or bring none of these things and come exactly as you already are. For this assignment you will need you, yourself and your courage to try. This isn't a performance you witness, it's a rite you participate in. We are co-creators of the magic. There is no right way to do it. We improvise. The form as ancient as people. We know how to do this, because it is in our bones. You are welcome here. Bring your whole self. And find yourself anew.

WOMEN'S GATHERING

May 19-21, 2017
Our Haven, French Lick, IN
The Female Body The Our Haven Women's Gathering was established as a way for the women of the Our Haven Community to come together as women. In current society we are most often separated into small family units. We generally grow up with our mothers and sisters as the only other women in our lives. There are those of us who are lucky enough to also have grandmothers, aunts and sometimes close friends. However, rarely does this amount to community. In reality, our larger culture cultivates rather toxic relationships between women. Society expects us to be competitive and catty toward one another. At Our Haven we are striving to reject these notions. We wish to come together and rebuild what modern society has torn down. There will be kid's activities for the young ladies in attendance. Also, we will have physical activities for the adult women such as Zumba, Yoga and Belly Dancing. Ladies of all ages who live their daily lives as women are welcome to attend. Our Haven is home to many lifestyles, religions and backgrounds. Come and commune with us! Nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of southern Indiana's countryside is Our Haven, an 175 acre nature sanctuary of beautiful deciduous forests and reclaimed fields for all who wish to come enjoy its clear creeks, natural springs, and secluded areas.
