WASW Gathering - Birth
May 4-6, 2018 in Denmark, Maine
Spring, a time of rebirth. A time to let go of the things that aren't working for you, your path, and your highest self. A time to transition out of the meditative depths of winter, and welcome the new life and energy of the season's turn. In this very special gathering at the cusp of Spring, we will hold space for processing what's not working for us, letting it fall away and allowing ourselves to welcome the energy of rebirth.
Lynne is an herbalist, artist, and holistic health practioner.

Lynne has been an apprentice of herbalism under Susun Weed and Flower Power Herbs and Roots, she has studied permaculture and improving earth-human relationships in Croatia, and Austria. Her theatrical work synthesizes movement, word play, and deeply empathic components.

Interested in joining us?
*UPDATE* Sign ups are closed for this gathering. Thanks for your interest!
Please register as soon as you can. With only 7-8 spaces available, we will also be putting together an overflow list, which will be used to fill cancelations as well as inspire the potential for further gatherings.
The cost of this gathering is on a sliding scale of $75-$150. This will allow us to purchase high quality, fresh and local ingredients for all meals, treats, activity supplies, firewood and campsites. Please give what you can and don't overextend yourself. We strive to keep the costs of these gatherings as low as possible, but if this price range is outside of your budget, please be in touch.
Note: If you are able to pay $150, you will help someone else participate. Thank you!
After you donate to the gathering's sliding scale, you will be directed to a questionnaire where we'll ask for a bit more information about your good self.
