Summer Solstice Blessing Friday, June 19th or Saturday, June 20th
Please read these instructions carefully.
I'm excited about this properly socially distanced, all-night event. The location is a retreat center about an hour west of Minneapolis. Each night is limited to 7 participants to ensure social distance, and we will have soldi measure in place to ensure each person's safety. Details below.
The retreat center does have an indoor space that we will use if the weather is stormy, and it will provide basic social distancing. But the ideal plan is to be outside, around a fire, surrounded by lake and trees, with each person (or couple) in their own small tent, about 6 feet apart. This will not only ensure social distancing excellence, it will also keep flying and crawling critters from disturbing you. In the ideal, the night will be clear and warm, allowing you to be outside of your tent if you wish (distanced properly from others) or inside the tent if you want more privacy.
We will ask people to wear masks when we are gathered as a group. If it storms, we will move inside, where we will be about 4 feet apart, and we will ask people to wear masks. Please do not register for this event if being 4 feet apart all night inside a room is not acceptable to you.
This is an all-night ceremony. You are free to arrive anytime after 4 PM and enjoy the peace and quiet of the land. Your tent needs to be set up and ready for ceremony by 7:30 PM. You will be on your way the next morning by about 10:30 AM.
Details about tenting:
You can bring your own tent. Please make it a personal sized tent, and not a massive one.
You will also need to bring your own sleeping bag or blankets, pad, pillow, jammies, stuffed bunny, etc.
We won't serve breakfast, so being your own breakfast food and night-snacks.
If you are a couple with no need to socially distance from each other, you can tent together. Please let me know in advance if you plan to do this.
