Winter 2017 eventsTortoise Clan at Twilight Covening
October 6-9, 2017
in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts
Twilight Covening is a continuous 3-day ritual which holds and shapes an institute of Earth spirituality and a time to develop our collective wisdom in a shared sacred space as we move into the dark time of the year. The intensive work of Twilight Covening takes place in practice-specific Clans of 10-20 people and in full-community rituals that flow together through the weekend. We explore the depths of a range of spiritual practices, learn new skills together and experience the joy and power of a living community ritual.
I basically live for this event. It's the highest highlight of my year. So as time has passed and my body's ability to meet the challenges of the Mountain has begun to decline, I've had to come up with ways and means of being there - not just physically present, but fully experiencing the magic, without making those precious three days all about my aches, pains, and limitations. Seemed to me I wasn't the only one in that position - so if your magic is still alive and kicking, but your body is slowing down, join Tchipakkan and me in the brand-new Tortoise Clan! We'll accommodate each other's limits (while gently expanding some of them) and at the same time do our Work. We'll employ mirror work, gentle movement, and other techniques to explore and appreciate our changing physical and mental selves, while sharing our experience, collectively feeling our way toward wisdom. Together let us explore the ways slowing down can be an advantage, even a blessing. Can't wait to get there and get started!
