Intention: We gather to tell our stories, in gratitude
and with open hearts for what was, is, and shall be; we
gather with family and friends to remember, honor,
and heal; to celebrate, strengthen, and rejoice; and to
vision, weave, and birth.
Wildflower Gathering provides casual time and space
to be present in community; to nurture ourselves and
our relationships; to meet new friends and to re-kindle
old friendships; to remember the past and vision the
future; to do magic in the here and now.
Saturday's ritual will include a Stone Soup dinner, so
bring a food ingredient contribution and a story (5-7
mins) for the Bardic Circle.
Wildflower Gathering will offer a community project
back to the land and will share in the labor of creating community
