Description of Events:
9-11 a.m. — Conscious Ecstatic Dance, a Dance Church: A sacred space to unwind, shake, move, and release. This is an alcohol free dance.
11:30-12:30 p.m. — Ecstatic Song Share & Circle: A place to gain confidence playing and sharing your main instrument-the body and voice. We will be creating new a capella works together as well as learning some sacred circle songs.
2-5 p.m. — Red Tent Afternoon: This is a Pleasure Of The Senses with love music, and delightful herbally healing elixirs. Note about the Red Tents: Red Tents are traditionally for women only. This Red Tent afternoon is open to anyone and is limited to 35 people. The idea for a "Red Tent Afternoon" comes from a song by Kathryn Blume as her ideal venue to share music. "Break out the chocolate and the weed, snacks are coming soon, hanging with my Sisters on a red tent afternoon." Kathryn Blume is confirmed to play music on 2/12. Red Tents throughout history are gathering spaces where women commune together during menstruation and childbirth. This time is seen as sacred, more connected to the divine and uniquely creative. The arrival portion will be from 2-2:30 p.m. Everyone must arrive by 2:30 p.m. and the event will be closed between 2:30-5 p.m. Each participant will receive chocolate and herbal infused beverages as well as baked goods.
6-8 p.m. — Healing Song Bath: Lauren Larken & Stephen Scuderi will help you find a restful space in a hammock or on a supportive pad where you will be immersed in a healing restorative journey with world instruments including: Tibetan Sound Bowls, Indian Shruti Box, Native American Flute and Australian Didgeridoo. Suggested donation $30-60.

Our goal is to help raise 5k, and all “pro-seeds” will benefit Arantha Farrow's upcoming mid-February trip to Zimbabwe 🇿🇼 to reunite with her father Akim. On Valentine’s Day in 1996, Akim had just married Arantha’s mother Justine, and was in St. Albans applying for his green card when he was unexpectedly arrested and deported for a minor out-of-state cannabis possession charge.At the time, Arantha was 4 years old, and her brother was a baby. This tragedy left Justice alone to care for two children, and since then, Akim hasn’t been able to return to the States.Arantha is a leader in Vermont’s music, herbal healing, arts, rocks, minerals and crystals industries. She’s the founder of Caledonia Cannabis and owns a San Francisco trolley where she houses her retail store and holds special events. She’s always held the dream of connecting her life in Vermont with her Father's life, and help improve the livelihoods of the people, land, and culture of Zimbabwe.
2022 was a particularly tragic and difficult year of losses for Arantha, as it included the murder of her best friend, Fern Feather, and the passing of her Grandma and favorite elder ancestor, Suzy.
As Arantha travels to Zimbabwe from mid-February to mid-March, we wish to send her with an abundance of emotional, spiritual, and material blessings, and we seek to raise $5000 to take with her on her journey.
