Moon of the Crackling Branches
Suggested Donation: $12
A rare opportunity in winter, this ladies night out is by special request! Campfire by the beach to welcome the first full moon of the calendar year. Bring your intention, promises of renewal and best story of resolutions gone awry (or straight to hell) and we'll let them go in a plume of smoke. Release and renew, that's our way in the world! I'll bring the chocolate and marshmallows. You may bring a piece of firewood to add to our collective fire.

April - Moon of the Budding Trees: Wednesday, April 20, 7:00-9:30PM
Welcome spring! Wee buds all curled up under protective wraps are just bursting, flowers are pollinating, insects are abuzz and mating is happening all over the place. Buds are the future of every plant. And they've been resting patiently for months, storing up energy and slowly gathering what they need for just the right moment to explode! We'll discover the importance of recognizing the potential lying in wait, in nature and ourselves. Explore the wildness, potency and abundance of spring.
May - Moon of the Flowers: Saturday, May 21, 7:30-9:30PM
"The Earth laughs in flowers..." says Ralph Waldo Emerson. Though only a partial quote from a poem, these words still strike an emotional chord. Flowers are wrought with meaning and symbolism throughout history, and are mysteriously matched to their pollinators in an ancient dance of reciprocity. We're headed to a wonderful garden known for its flower display and views of the moon.
June - Moon of the Salmon's Return: Saturday, June 18, 7:00-9:30PM
As the daylight hours reach their fullness on the Summer Solstice, we'll explore the salmon's life lesson of rejuvenation, renewal, and enjoy a moment of peace and reflection as we watch the day turn into night. What's more fun than an evening of exploration, remembrance, and a taste of summer with a bunch of ladies?
July - Moon of Ripe Berries: Sunday, July 17, 7:30-9:30PM
Whether cultivated or wild, berries are a true messenger of hope and life. Berries are a vehicle for the potential they carry - seeds. And berries must be eaten to be enjoyed - and for new life to grow. What do they say to you? Explore the ripeness of summer and the full moon during this evening walk, tasting several of our native berries along the way.
August - Moon of the Cougar / Moon of Dry Grass: Friday, August 19, 7:00-9:00PM
There are many names for the largest cat in North Amercia - catamount, cougar, puma, panther, mountain lion. A solitary, silent, and wary creature of the night, there is much we can learn from the patience and instinctive, wily ways of this powerful animal. Discover what it means to be a cougar during this exploration of your night senses. Bring your sense of adventure, ladies!
September - Moon of the Harvest, Friday, September 16, 6:00-8:00PM
Every moon has a distinctive flavor and an intention that reveals itself. September's moon of the harvest is about fruition, abundance, and generosity.
October - Moon of Falling Leaves, Saturday, October 15, 5:30-7:30PM
Transitioning to the dark time of the year finds us acknowledging the importance of ancestors who came before us and the stories they left behind. For inspiration, we'll reflect upon nature's nutrient cycle of nourishing, replenishing, and composting in a place given to contemplation, rest, and memories.
November - Moon of Frost's Return, Sunday, November 13, 4:00-5:30PM
Join a pack of wild ladies for the last Ladies Night of 2016! Migration and hibernation are our themes as we watch squirrels scurry and geese fly by. Do you wander in search of meaningful moments or prepare to hunker down at this time of year? We'll ponder how these natural cycles emerge in our own lives and watch migrating swans fly in at sunset to their evening roost.
Note: Ladies Night Out hibernates in December. Our season typically runs January-November.
