About the Program
Our seasonal celebrations weave together nature-connection practices; reflection, contemplation, prayer; ritual & play; eco-craft-making; music, song & dance; land tending & stewardship; gardening & wild foraging; and ancestral animism. The nature of how we gather is ever-evolving and follows the changing tides of the seasons. So we learn to pay attention to the way that Earth speaks to us, sings to us, whispers to us. We are guided by Earth wisdom as we deepen our relationship to Her, so everything we do is centered around cultivating this bond.
A NOTE ON WEATHER & WHAT TO BRING
Bring your songs and your voice, your percussion instruments and sound-makers! We come together regardless of the weather unless it is unsafe to do so. We ask that you dress for the weather, bring your own blanket or folding chair, walking stick and water. If you are joining for a shared meal, please bring your own bowl, utensils and mug. We model ecological consciousness in all of our gatherings.
A NOTE ON COVID-19
Out of respect for one another, we ask that all attendees come prepared to honor social distancing guidelines with masks as optional.
All are welcome and respected at Forest Temple gatherings. We strive to be diverse, intergenerational and accessible people of all walks of life. Please contact us when you'll be attending with children or when accessibility is a concern so that we can be as accommodating as possible.
