PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS 2017


April 

The Earth is Our Mother ~ We Must Take Care of Her ~ STAND UP FOR THE EARTH
The Earth has given us our bodies, our food, our homes, our water, our earthly sustenance.
She takes care of us. How do we take care of her?

Join us in Celebration of Earth Day
Saturday April 22, 2017 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

 In these times more than ever it is critical that we understand that it is WE The PEOPLE who must STAND UP FOR THE EARTH by connecting with her loving her, being in harmony with her rhythms and understanding that without her we can not physically survive. On this day we will gather on the earth in the sacred space of the Starseed Healing Sanctuary, to spend the day together experiencing the blessings of the Earth, visiting sacred sites, doing ceremony, helping with a project to uplift the sanctuary, blessing the water in the stream, releasing the fire of the medicine wheel, setting intentions in the Peace labyrinth, sharing a potluck meal together, singing, making music, sharing ways to take better care of the Earth, making the world a better place for all life.

May 

May Day Prayers for the Earth and for the People of the Earth
Sunday, May 7
12:00noon - 2:30 p.m.
May Day is one of our most favorite celebrations. On this day we write our prayers for the Earth and the people of the Earth onto rainbow ribbons and ceremonially walk with them in the Peace Labyrinth. We commit our prayers to the land and to the winds, tying our ribbons on the Maypoles. Here they will fly until May Day of next year.
Potluck vegetarian lunch to follow ceremony.

Gardening Work Party: Memorial Day Weekend
Saturday-Sunday, May 27-28

The main project we want to tackle is preparing and planting the main vegetable garden. Depending on if we have enough people for several work crews, we may also have a trail clearing crew and a grounds-keeping crew to get the sanctuary ready for the summer season.
 
You are invited to spend the night if you would like to make a weekend of it. Evening will be a time for community, music, sharing and being together.
 
RSVP to reserve a bed in the retreat house – space is limited – first come, first serve. We will be sharing meals collaboratively with Starseed contributing some main items and you are invited to bring some food to contribute. Perhaps you might like to be on the food prep crew?
 
Please RSVP to starseed@bcn.net if you will be joining us so we can plan the meal count accordingly.
We would love to have you join us!
COME, AND BRING YOUR FRIENDS
Many hands make light the work, and joyous the community.
