Summer 2019 
News and Upcoming Gatherings
Summer Time Sunshine Greetings!

" Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time."
--John Lubbock

"When Summer lies upon the world, and in a noon of gold, Beneath the roof of sleeping leaves the dreams of trees unfold; When woodland halls are green and cool, and wind is in the West, Come back to me! Come back to me, and say my land is best!"
--J.R.R. Tolkien



Summer is here in full charge. With the warmer days and sunny skies, we find the seeds we planted in the dark times becoming fully fledged in the light. Remember to take a day or two to be grateful for the life of this world, as it hums so loudly in the summer days, an ode to life, light, and love.

Need Land!
We still do not have a location for the 2019 Long Dance, or Vision Quest.
Please, please, please, we need help finding a location. Temporary or permanent!
We also would like land for a permanent location, but for now we need an interim solution!

The Board Needs Help
We are actively seeking board members and helpers. The board needs help with multiple endeavors and initiatives. If you are interested please email info@circlesofempowerment.org

Successfully Moved!
We are completely off the old land! We thank everyone who contributed in this move. We moved in grace and speed and are now secure in our new storage location. We still need a place for Long Dance though!
