FULL MOON ALL SOULS PURIFICATION LODGE

All Souls Full Moon Purification Lodge & Potluck:

Celebrating our ancestors who have gone before.

First Time Participants arrive @ Noon!
Heads up! the TIME CHANGE IS THIS WEEKEND!

This November Beaver or Frost Full Moon falls near All Souls Day usually around Nov. 2nd also known as the "Day of the Dead". A celebration of our loved ones that have crossed over. This lodge will celebrate the human path and all who have traversed it. We acknowledge that the growth we attain in this lifetime heals and supports the past and future 7 generations and that death is part of the process of life!

Shamanic Purification Lodges are a sacred ceremony open to all those who choose to grow and evolve as humans. The Lodges increase our connection with the elements of creation, the worlds of Grandmother Earth, and purifies (emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually). The alchemy of this ceremony creates a safe space for us to let go of what no longer serves us and connect with Spirit to receive guidance and healing. Join a community-circle of sharing, empowering us to make a jump in our personal and collective evolution.

There is no charge for this ceremony however an exchange of energy must be given to maintain balance and allow me to continue offering ceremony to the community. To RSVP message or contact me with your email so I can send you the protocols and directions here.

I look forward to the pleasure of your company,

ANIMAL TOTEM WORKSHOP
Dec
16
10:00am10:00am

ANIMAL TOTEM WORKSHOP

Wild animals teach us how to be natural and comfortable in our own skin.  They do not need therapists nor do they get caught up in dramas around personality and events.  They are not living in the past or the future but in the now and they adapt quickly when their situation changes.  They teach us how to align with nature, and be more present and receptive in our environments.  Join Michael Star Dreamer and Kelly Jumping Mouse in this one day intensive workshop:.

  • Learn your birth sitting place and wheel of animal allies according to Sun Bear's Earth Astrology.
  • Take a guided journey into the lower world and meet your allies and discover your center power animal.
  • Ceremony to accept your animal totems.
  • Sweet Medicine Awakening Purification Lodge to integrate and empower each totem to become your ally and teacher in life.

Workshop cost: $75 (we may finish very late in the evening consider adding $25 for an overnight stay) The group will work together during the day to ready the lodge and prepare the stone children stack for the evening purification ceremony.  Please bring gifts for the fire crew.  Workshop limited to 17.

We may do a Blessing and Awakening ceremony of Shideh bundles for apprentices gathering their animal representations the following day on Sunday or plan it for a later date.  Help will be needed the following day to put the lodge coverings away.

WISE WOMEN'S WINTER RETREAT
Jan
12
to Jan 15

WISE WOMEN'S WINTER RETREAT

Fully enter into the WOMB of WINTER by giving yourself a “special winter time-out”...This gathering is intended to hold sacred space for each other - to pay attention to the serious inner work we are longing to do but often resist.  We are asking that everyone attending join us by Friday evening in time to open the Circle at 7pm - to create the matrix that will hold an atmosphere of intimacy where nothing is held back.

The agenda is open and will come into focus on Friday evening as we design our time together. Many women have a personal vision they are seeding in coming together...so perhaps this is an intent we each share. Women that come together with focused intent create magic! 


Cost: Lodging fee. (11 beds available) Donations or Medicine gifts for facilitators, teachings, and ceremonies are requested. Please RSVP for the weekend by messaging Kelly Clampitt or Carol Ann with your email. Include if you will need a Bed $25/nt or Palette $10/nt (you bring). We will provide further details via email.

We look forward to this special "time out" in the heart of winter!

FULL MOON PURIFICATION LODGE
Jul

1:00pm 1:00pm

FULL MOON PURIFICATION LODGE

The July full moon is also known as the "Buck Moon" and "Thunder Moon".  A time when summer storms are frequent and the deer are actively foraging and growing their antlers in preparation for the coming seasons.  Full moons are the zenith of completion of a cycle begun in the last new moon or even further back.  It could be a time to harvest what has been accomplished or a time to purge what is not "growing corn" in your life. Purification Lodges reconnect us to the elements and give us the opportunity to re-balance and listen to spirit and our deepest longings within the soul.  We pray for self, life, and others.  There is no charge for this ceremony.  You will be asked to contribute to costs incurred and gift the fire crew and dance chief of the ceremony in order to maintain balance for what you have received.  Details of the ceremony, location, and what to bring will be sent once you RSVP.  Commitment to show up for yourself (as a form of self care) is the most important thing and is the beginning of your ceremony!  

I look forward to the pleasure of your company,

Here is a little taste of the vow below...

Great Spirit, I vow from this time on to dance towards enlightenment.

I will fight my inner darkness with any tools and knowledge that works.

I accept all teachers, teachings and paths as equal, I honor all paths to the light.

I choose the Sweet Medicine SunDance way as my Path with Heart and the

pursuit of knowledge and pleasure as my way of self-growth......


A medicine gift and tobacco is required to participate in this ceremony.  A $10 donation is suggested to help Mary pay for traveling expenses.

Fully enter into the WOMB of WINTER by giving yourself a “special winter time-out”...This gathering is intended to hold sacred space for each other - to pay attention to the serious inner work we are longing to do but often resist.  We are asking that everyone attending join us by Friday evening in time to open the Circle at 7pm - to create the matrix that will hold an atmosphere of intimacy where nothing is held back.

The agenda is open and will come into focus on Friday evening as we design our time together. Many women have a personal vision they are seeding in coming together...so perhaps this is an intent we each share. Women that come together with focused intent create magic! 

A few of our tentative activities may include:

 

  • Daily yoga and QiQong practices lead by women attending. Body workers may provide services for fees or exchange among participants. We will gather a list of what women will be offering.

  • Expressive Art day lead by Carol Ann and Vickie Peltz.

  • Birthing from Within Mandala:

  • Within each of us lies the beauty of our unique selves, propensities, gifts and talents. Giving birth to this beauty is the great work of our lives. Often our beauty lies hidden within, for many reasons we find we are unable to give this seed shape/form and be made manifest. This activity is intended to help us define, shed light upon and bring to life our unique beauty.

  • A Sisterhood Empowerment Circle “Mirroring Take-Apart & Put-Back Together “ ceremony for one woman seeking major transition by exploring her shadow and light (let me know if this calls to one of you) it is a deep ceremony and healing reflection for everyone that sits on these circles... 

  • Women's Purification Lodge to clear out the clutter, honor our natural feminine decisiveness, and seed our wombs with creativity and power.

  • A table will be set up to share/sell your Wise and "Crafty" products: pottery, crafts, personal care products, herbal creations, baked goods, books, music, etc. 

  • Monday is a holiday so if women want to stay through Monday it is optional and a day of relaxation, rejuvenation, and fun to just hang out.  We will likely share an intimate dinner Sunday with wine and wildness and continue to share body work on Monday etc....


Cost: Lodging fee. (11 beds available) Donations or Medicine gifts for facilitators, teachings, and ceremonies are requested. Please RSVP for the weekend by messaging Kelly Clampitt or Carol Ann with your email. Include if you will need a Bed $25/nt or Palette $10/nt (you bring). We will provide further details via email.

We look forward to this special "time out" in the heart of winter!

WINTER SOLSTICE PURIFICATION LODGE & TOBACCO PRAYER BUNDLES

  • 12-2pm create your tobacco bundles
  • 2pm Ceremony begins (newcomers arrive no later than 1:30 for an orientation to this ceremony)

Align with the introspective gift of Winter by looking within at the last year's events and how it impacted you. Plant new seeds of intent for the coming year by making and decorating a prayer bundle to hang outside in nature releasing your attachments to “how” what you desire manifests. The bundles may be as fancy or simple as you like using natural materials like snake skin, fur, feathers, and ribbons. Infuse tobacco with your intent for the coming year. I have the tobacco, cloth, and some feathers to share;  you may bring any additional natural items you like.  Those of you that have made them before know they work! Bring a potluck dish to share in the feast afterwards. 

There is no charge for this ceremony; green energy contributions to the Lodge are appreciated, and gifts for Kelly and the fire crew are requested to maintain balance for what you receive. Once you RSVP I will send out the directions here and how to prepare and what to bring for this amazing ceremony! 
 

We need 2 rock carriers to help on the fire crew with Maria Night Eyes, let me know if you would like to assist! it is a ceremony in itself when you are of service.


I look forward to sharing time with you!

The location is completely private on a 53 acre holler with a gravity fed spring, and surrounded by a mossy green forest.  Come prepared to explore the magical inner & outer terrain!

 Note: Due to last years rave reviews, we’re adding an additional day of rejuvenation Monday the 22ndSisters are invited to share their gifts with each other be it your crafts for sale, or exchanging body work with each other.

Introduction to Human Perception & Working with Crystals
Feb

10:00am10:00am

Introduction to Human Perception & Working with Crystals

The path toward greater maturity and ultimately “enlightenment” is one of increasing your perceptions and awareness.  Have you ever been in a conversation (or an argument) with someone & realized that you "weren't on the same wavelength"? Have you ever been in the presence of a wise elder, been uplifted by their teachings, only to discover that you can't reclaim those insights the next day? What's going on? Ever wonder what Don Juan's slap on Carlos Castaneda' s back was accomplishing? 

Come learn: 

  • About the Human Assemblage Points & their place within our energy field
  • How your assemblage point shapes your perception of reality and impacts your daily life
  • Learn techniques to maximize your ability to increase your awareness and shift your perceptions
  • Beginning techniques using specially carved crystals to shift our assemblage point and “tune up” our chakras

There are many systems of healing that recognize and work with the chakras.  The Twisted Hairs Elders teach that we have 10 of them.  Come learn what they are, where they are located, and what impacts them. You will be taught, will experience, & have the opportunity to practice, specific techniques utilizing specially carved crystals.  The Twisted Hairs Elders were, & are, masters of understanding the human energy field, detailing more than 45 distinctions. Each one of these contributes to our health, well being & our evolution. 

Class cost: $30 or $20 + barter

You may make special arrangements for payment or barter with Michael prior to the class.

WISE WOMEN'S WINTER RETREAT

WISE WOMEN'S WINTER RETREAT

Greetings Ladies!

We will be entering into the "womb of winter" by gifting ourselves a “special winter time-out”...

This gathering is intended to hold sacred space for each other - to pay attention to the serious inner work we are longing to do but often resist. We are asking that everyone attending join us by Friday evening in time to open the Circle at 7pm - to create the matrix that will hold an atmosphere of intimacy where nothing is held back.


We look forward to the unique alchemy each of you will bring to this gathering!

Contact Kelly to RSVP.
