“In the Spirit of Mother”
Spring Ceremony of Renewal in Minnesota
May 9th-12th, 2019
Dunrovin Retreat Center,
Marine St. Croix, MN
Early Registration by March 22nd, 2019
In the depths of Winter, if we listen, we can hear the promise of Spring. The life that has been nurtured underground in Winter will burst forth with renewed vitality come Springtime.
Each Spring, for the last decade, we have gathered by the banks of the wide and beautiful St Croix River near Stillwater, Minnesota to create ceremony together. We gather to renew ourselves in the company of friends and colleagues, to listen to the wisdom of our inner knowing and to choose one new “seed” to plant in the garden of our lives.
We gather to give thanks for our own life, for the lives of our community and for Life all around us. Amidst herons, turtles, beavers, foxes
This Spring, life has led us to holding our ceremony over the Mother’s Day weekend.* Come join us in celebrating the Spirit of Mother – she who births new life – the Sacred Feminine in harmony and balance with the Sacred Masculine.
Mother takes many forms, and yet all mothering arises from some form of seed – planted where it can grow and thrive. Mothering requires a seed to be nurtured and cared for until it can grow on its own. We humans have the same on-going need to be nurtured and cared for.
Each year, we seek out one seed that we care about to plant in the garden of our lives. After our ceremony we carry with us, not only our own seed, but also an awareness of the seed of everyone who sat in circle with us.
* Please note, we will complete the ceremony by Noon so that people can have time with their families on this day of honoring Mother.
