Celebrate May Day and the arrival of spring! This year, the roses may be in full bloom--and the peonies and the iris. The sweet fragrance of the black locust trees are wafting in the air. The farm is intoxicating with its fragrant flowers! 

 
For this event, plan to participate! Pick herbs and fresh flowers, decorate cakes and sandwiches, make flower garlands, crowns, and staffs, taste delicious food grown on the farm and help us set up the May Pole.
 
Then join us as we weave satin ribbons around the May pole in the traditional May Pole dance, accompanied by the live music of Artie and the Vipers. Enjoy the story, “Butterfly Wonder” a lap puppet show delightfully told by Beech Tree Puppets. Bring your family and friends! Extra farm goodies may be available for purchase.

Hope you will join us to celebrate the energy and wonder of Spring!

Cost is $10/adult; $5/child; $25/family. A potluck follows for event for members of White Rose Farm Circle only AND we welcome new members with a 30-day introductory offer. Click here for more details. 

Happy spring!

May Day Celebration: Sunday, May 7 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

The event this year includes the traditional May Pole Dance, accompanied by Artie and the Vipers, and a lap puppet show, "Butterfly Wonder" by Beech Tree Puppets. Click here for a flyer; click here to register. This year's event includes a pot-luck for members only after our formal program.

Sacred Women's Circle, Saturday, April 29, 10:00 to 3:30 p.m. 

Some of us are marching in support of climate change, but some of us are still gathering at the farm to spend the day with other women and with the land itself.

My friend, Gwen Marable, will lead tomorrow's gathering. She encouraged me to create a Sacred Women's Circle at White Rose Farm. We envisioned a women's circle meeting regularly eight times a year at the changing of the seasons--with the land supporting the circle; the circle supporting the land. 

We appreciate coming together on a regular basis, savoring time and space to listen to each other and reflect on our lives as we share our journeys. The passing of the seasons becomes more present to us.

The circle is open to all the women in our larger network: some come once; others return again and again. Please call with questions (410-756-9303). We suggest a donation of $25 for each event,  with a discounted suggestion of $15 for first-time participants. Bring food to share. RSVP as space is limited. The event will be held at 5009 Teeter Road, Taneytown. 

Enjoy Spring and hope to see you soon!

We have two events this week specifically for women:   

Global Sisterhood, Wednesday, April 26, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

"Profound and uplifting," were the words one woman used to describe a gathering of our circle of the Global Sisterhood (sister.unify.org). The group is calling for a movement of soulful women around the world focused on transforming themselves and the world to create harmony and health for all. They are asking women to meet at every new moon to embody transformative leadership. 

This month theme is Cherished Body: I Honor my Body as a Sacred Temple. 

Even before we knew the theme, Renee Deiaco had planned to facilitate our circle. She will present easy-to-follow Qigong movements from the Radiant Lotus Women's Qigong. This program is an empowering practice of self-care for women and emphasizes a supportive, nurturing environment for women's healing. Renee is certified as a instructor by Daisy Lee, who shares teachings from her Tibetan Chinese and Western teachers in Radiant Lotus Women's Qigong. 

Renee has studied several styles of Qigong and is also an Usui Reiki Master & Holy Fire Karuna Reiki Master. She offers to assist us to expand our own abilities and heal ourselves through Infinite Universal Love of Reiki and Qigong.

The event will be held at the Retreat House, 4234 Ruggles Road, Taneytown. It is free and we are taking donations to support refugee women throughout the world. RSVP here as space is limited. 

 

Sacred Women's Circle, Saturday, April 29, 10:00 to 3:30 p.m. 

Spend the day with other women, reflecting on your life and the seasons of life.

My friend, Gwen Marable, encouraged me to create a Sacred Women's Circle at White Rose Farm. We envisioned a women's circle meeting regularly eight times a year at the changing of the seasons--with the land supporting the circle; the circle supporting the land. 

We appreciate coming together on a regular basis, savoring time and space to listen to each other and reflect on our lives as we share our journeys. The passing of the seasons becomes more present to us.

We suggest a donation of $25 for each event,  with a discounted suggestion of $15 for first-time participants. Bring food to share. RSVP as space is limited. The event will be held at 5009 Teeter Road, Taneytown. 

Enjoy Spring and hope to see you soon!

Global Sisterhood Gathering, Monday, March 27, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

"Profound and uplifting," were the words one woman used to describe last month's gathering of a circle of the Global Sisterhood (sister.unify.org). The group is calling for a movement of soulful women around the world focused on transforming themselves and the world to create harmony and health for all. They are asking women to meet at every new moon to embody transformative leadership. 

This month, Christine Pilson will facilitate our circle. Christine is a Certified Health Coach. She writes, "I believe that food is medicine, and is the foundation of a healthy body and sharp mind. There’s no greater joy than having the energy to do the things you love and to be with the people who love and support you." 

The event will be held at the Retreat House, 4234 Ruggles Road, Taneytown. It is free, though we are taking donations to support refugee women throughout the world. RSVP here as space is limited. 

Thanks and hope to see you soon!

Native American Evan Pritchard combined story, ritual, song, flute, and drum to lead people into a deep expression of prayers for healing in Baltimore on Friday, March 10. We will lead a workshop here at the farm today from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. There is still some room for people to join us. Click here to register. 

I have talked with Evan. We have agreed to offer the workshop again this Sunday, that if at least 8 people sign up. We will lead the workshop from 1:30 to 4:30 with a ceremony at 4:30 and then simple farm food. 

It is a full moon on Sunday and there is a place on the property where one can watch sunset and moonrise (which will occur between 7:15 and 7:30 p.m.) We invite those who can to stay for that event and then we will close for the evening. 
 
Most of the event will be inside in a  warm house, and we will be briefly outside for parts of the workshop/ceremony. 
 
Please RSVP here if you can come. And please invite others if you feel so moved. Click here for a flyer (information is the same, except for the change in date.) Thanks 
 
To harmony and healing for ourselves, for our nation and for the world!
