2021 workshops:

Embodied Explorations of White Supremacy Culture with Hazel Turrone
Through a gentle ‘calling in’ culture held within co-created shame resilience and curiosity, we will take the next step in our individual journeys toward dismantling racism within our own bodies… together.  Embodied practices, movement and play will be woven within the time together.  Come as you are with all of your curiosities,
 unconsciousness, confusion, eagerness and hesitancy… and anything else…it’s all welcome.
Hazel is a member of the Stone Weaver Clan and a massage therapist and energy healer in Montpelier.  Fueled by curiosity and a deep passion for embodied earth spirituality, they enjoy holding spaces to explore ways to deepen connection individually and communally while disentangling from the patterns of disconnection and systems of oppression that live within our bodies.

 

The Silver Wheel of Arianrhod

Arianrhod is a welsh Goddess that swirls the galaxy of stars and spins the cosmos. She is represented by a silver wheel in motion. Arianrhod is about time and seasons. She inspires the understanding of the tapestry of the Goddess, the cycles within our lives and the cycles within cycles. A major cycle that we are aware of is the wheel of the year with the Sabbats. This workshop will explore the concept of having an inner wheel that turns and how this wheel manifests through our life tapestry. This workshop will have an exercise with beads and jewelry to integrate these concepts of cycles and main events in our lives. Arianrhod is also connected to her spiral castle. This workshop will have a journey to your inner landscape through her spiral castle. There will be a sharing time for our insights about our inner landscape and true sovereignty. This workshop will have an exercise on feeling our intuition through our senses with special herbs. There will be an exercise on feeling the streams of our inner web, getting to know our inner nodal points in our streams and gain the ability to send energy to our streams with a practice of using needle fingers, crystal quartz and becoming weavers of the great web.

The Art of Not Taking It Personally

Have you ever been in the situation where you reacted  in a way you wish you hadn’t.  We all find ourselves at times “triggered” and then thrown into strong emotions by people and circumstances,  In his guide to personal freedom, The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz suggests “that whatever happens around you, don’t take anything personally.” This class presents a method for living that teaching.

After a brief introduction and discussion of the human condition and the false-self system as a conceptual background, the steps of what I call the Welcoming Process will be explored and practiced.

 This method offers us the opportunity to make choices free from our “hooked” emotions and conditioned habits–responding rather than reacting in the present moment.  With consistent practice, the Welcoming Process helps dismantle  the emotional wounds of a lifetime by addressing where they are stored–in the body–contributing to the process of transformation.
Henry Austin, MRP, MEd, is an Earth Elder, Certified Spiritual Guide and Druid. In his early years he studied and taught ecology, environmental planning, organizational development and educational research at several universities. As  a naturalist and early childhood educator he established and taught for 30 years at the Mountain Brook Children’s Center, a nature/science preschool for children 3 through 6.  Henry has lived for the past 17 years in an  off-the-the-grid cabin with his cat in the woods of western Massachusetts.

 

The Mask

This class will focus on the internal landscape of emotional defense that each of us developed in childhood.  The “mask” reflects one of the primary ways that as children, we learned to cope with the painful challenges of an imperfect environment.  However, as we grew into adulthood, these defenses became problematic and a hindrance to the discovery of our true and authentic selves.

Together, we will gently explore the ways in which our masks protect us while also holding us back.  We will also view the different types of masks that can affect us with a heart of compassion and non-judgment.  The goal will be to begin a journey of conscious awareness of our masks which in turn may lead to a deeper connection with our genuine selves.   In this way, spiritual blocks may be lifted so that we can rely more on our own innate wisdom/creativity and less on the reactive (defensive) mind. This class will be a journey of self discovery.

Rita (Autumn) Jenkins is from Southern CA.  She moved to the East Coast many years ago to be able to experience the beauty of the four seasons.  A long time student of internal healing work, Rita has a master’s degree in Religious Studies and is a graduate of the Pathwork Transformation Program.  Her special interest is the combination of psychology and spirituality.  She recently completed her final year of training in the Green Mountain Druid School.

 

Palm reading with Witt

Palmistry has it’s roots in Indian, Chinese astrology as well as Roma fortune telling. In China, palmistry has a long history. Since the Zhou Dynasty (1046-256BC) which is ~3000 years ago, it has prevailed.

Palmistry with the meaning of palm reading or hand prediction is to learn a person’s personalities, fortune and future by analyzing their hands. Another name for this is Chiromancy. In fact, palmistry not only refers to reading of one’s hand or palm, it also includes reading of the arm, fingers, and fingernail. From these details we are able to predict character, traits, health, wealth, wisdom, career, marriage and many more aspects. In this class we will focus on the basics of the palm only, on each hand. Learn about different lines, practice with a partner and see what happens! It should entertaining, fun, and informative.

Witt Is a Druid of the Stone Weaver clan. Before taking a dive into Druidry Witt received his Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Kansas in 2010. Furthering that path with an additional year of training from Purdue University in Nuclear Pharmacy. Even in childhood Witt was digging into the Esoteric and the Occult (The Hidden) trying to answer the burning question in his mind. What is the nature of reality and how do we more fully interact with it in meaningful and healthy ways and how does it present itself to us? Witt has spent years as a member of the Masonic organization and was initiated to the Master Mason rank.

Fun fact: Witt has the Mystic cross on each hand.
