The lodge is still covered from the New Year's Day Lodge. The deep snow of the Capricorn New Moon has melted, though we have a sweet new covering. Who knows what we'll find on February 23rd. If I need your help digging, I'll reach out. We also have a cord of good ash firewood on the property. If you have some time to help stack, it's nice to be here working on the land.

We will hold this ceremony in any weather conditions, rain, snow, sleet or heatwave. Only if a blizzard is in progress during Sunday morning travel time will we postpone.

Meanwhile, it is my prayer for you that you have been warm and healthy, and are feeling blessed by the longer days.

Come to the land and pray in conscious, loving community.


I want you to know about this interview about the Venus Cycle, as it is connected to the energy of this sweat lodge.

I'll interview Cayelin Castell, co-founder of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School. Cayelin will share the powerful medicine of the new Venus Cycle in Capricorn: Reclaiming the Grandmother Goddess. Cayelin will share how you can work with your own Venus Cycle, and what it can mean to you. I am eager to ask Cayelin questions about what the Grandmother Goddess means to people of all ages, and what connection there may be with the Hopi Prophecy: When the Grandmothers Speak, the world heals.
