Rites of Spring 41 Procession

Virtual Rites of Spring 2020

We gather in May for our 42nd time to celebrate the sacred Earth and the turning of the seasons in the mountains of western Massachusetts.

Join us online, (and in person in September) - as together we:

Weave the web of community;

Share in ancient traditions and new rituals;

Look forward to what we can become;

Learn through workshops and dialogue;

Light the Sacred fire;

Feel the rhythms of life in our drums and dance to raise our spirits;

Form lasting friends and see families grow as we come together in community – learning, sharing music, celebrating with ritual, and fueling our joy.
