A few female friends gather every new moon to honor our selves and our cycles. Inspired by the book The Red Tent, we have stitched together a collection of various shades of red fabrics which we often hoist to designate our meeting place. We've also tie-dyed dresses for the event... usually we eat well, do some creative project, just relax, and treasure our family and friendships. Contact Debra@Motherhouse.us or call 860-671-7945 if you'd like to join us.

The next new moon falls on April 26. We hope to continue our "Honoring our Foremothers" Book-Making project; a 5X5 accordion book celebrating women who have been personally influential, inspiring in our lives. After sharing stories about how the women we've chosen have uplifted and/or empowered us, we'll compose tributes to them.

BEEing in the Light!

Baby Ezra's first New Moon Gathering with friend Sarah.
Thanks to the bees for storing up sunshine!

Tal, Abi, and Darwin hand-dipping and braiding beeswax candles so we'll be able to enjoy the soft light from honey-scented beeswax during the up-coming light-starved season.

Rachel gives Margaret a hair trim... so she can SEE the light!
