Spring 2018 
News and Upcoming Gatherings
Spring Time Greetings

" Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!"
--Sitting Bull

"To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life."
--John Burroughs


Spring has sprung! The fields have returned to life. Taking the blessings of the sky, rain and sun, the flowers return and the animals sing the ode to life. The return of light vibrates into us, bringing us out of the winter hibernation and into action, for ourselves and for our world. Now is the time to grow yourself. Take those ideas that you have slept on and bring them forth into this world. Nourish yourself on the beauty of this world and your self reflection will be as bright as the spring flowers.
