Dear Friends of Starseed,
I hope that your are enjoying the delicious arrival of spring. I certainly am and receiving it with a lot of gratitude.
I am writing to catch you up with what is going on at Starseed and to ask for your help! Two months ago I had a fall outside in the mud and injured my right arm and the right side of my back. I have been healing since then and without full use of my arm not able to do the zillion of things that I normally do. It has been challenging to not work so hard and take care of myself. My heart is filled with gratitude for family and friends who have helped me through thus far.
And now that spring has sprung beautiful, wild and wooly, there is much that needs to be done. The fierce winds of the winter brought down many tree branches and overturned stones. The gardens and Hoop House are overgrown with weeds, the grass and dandelions are having a field day. Yikes! There is so much to do.
Can You Help!?
This Memorial day weekend Saturday and Sunday, you are invited to come hang out and Help uplift the sanctuary. There is work outside and inside.
If you do not feel that you can do outside work there is cleaning in the retreat house and meal preparations for the group. You are also welcome to stay overnight.
Saturday night we can hang out with the stars and maybe have a fire or play music together in the retreat house.
Want to Co-Create some Magic Together!?
RSVP: to [email protected] or call Satyena at 413-743-0417
Come for as long as you want, bring a bedroll if staying overnight, some food to chip in, musical instruments and work clothes.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Satyena
PS ~ If you are not able to come on Saturday or Sunday, but want to help, call me to set up an alternative time.

Celebrate Spring at Starseed
Springing forth into a New Day, a New Season!
Join us March 20th!

Dear friends,
At long last, spring returns heralding in a time of increased light, warmth and growth. It's been a long and challenging winter at Starseed and we are more than ready for change and transformation. We hope that you can join us as we anchor this powerful equinox time and celebrate the Rare Conjunction of the equinox and the full moon occurring only hours apart.

According to astrologer Bonnie Faith, here is what will be happening in the cosmos at that time.

"A benevolent and potent dual cosmic phenomenon occurs on Wednesday, March 20th when the sacred gateway of the Spring Equinox opens at 5:59 pm followed by the Full Moon in Libra peaking at 9:43 pm, EST. We end the astrological year with the intuitive, creative and transcendent energies of Pisces and enter a new season with fire, courage and the graceful beauty of the potent healing polarity of Aries~Libra."

On March 20th we will have an extended ceremony time beginning at 4:00 p.m. and ending 10:00 p.m.

Part 1 ~ 4:00 p.m. Earth Connection
For part of this time we will be outside "touching the earth"; calling in the directions;sending and receiving love; planting seeds in pots with your intentions that you will take home with you. Bring seeds if you want.
Part 2 ~ 5:45 p.m. Welcoming Spring ~ Equinox Ceremony
(In the labyrinth weather permitting)
Part 3 ~ 6:15-7:30 p.m. Vegetarian Potluck Meal
Part 4 ~ 7:30-8:30 p.m. Drumming, Music Making, story telling

Part 5 ~ 830-9:30 p.m. Healing using Crystal bowels, Tibetan singing bowels, gong, bells and other instruments
Part 6 ~ 9:30-10:00 p.m. Welcoming and singing in the Full Moon

The Divine Mother is Calling to Us: a Winter Solstice Gathering for Women
Saturday, December 22
10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Led by Satyena Ananda and Sarah Pirtle

WE COME TOGETHER IN THESE CHALLENGING TIMES TO CEREMONIALLY EXPERIENCE
THE PRESENCE OF THE DIVINE MOTHER.

We come into the presence of the Divine Mother -- which is enlivening, comforting and truth-telling. As women connect in ceremony, we recognize how ancient and life-giving this is. We’ll reflect upon our own relationship to the Divine Mother and respectfully make space for women to have very different stories. We’ll each bring objects for building an altar together and talk about why we selected them. There will be time to sing, hear about ancient women, laugh together, as well as wail and grieve for what has been done to women and the earth.

When We Call Her In, She Arrives.

This day encourages respect for women and our own dignity. It will be a time for nourishment where we can bring home a palpable sense of interconnection.

SHOW US THE WAY, DIVINE MOTHER.

Bring a vegetarian potluck contribution for lunch, and objects for the altar that represent The Divine Feminine for you. (you’ll take them home with you). Poems and songs are also welcome as we open to each other’s gifts.

Please RSVP to Satyena at [email protected].
You are also free to direct questions to Sarah at [email protected].

Cost is sliding scale: $30-75

Building Hugelkulture beds at Starseed. This was an overgrown unused section of the garden which was too wet in early spring. The Hugelkulture beds will wick up and hold a lot of the moisture and release it as needed. Hugelkulture means "hill culture" in German. It's a great system, not only for overly wet areas, but also used intensively for greening arid areas, as it retains moisture, needs little watering, and provides continuous nutrients as the wood breaks down.

The perfect rainy morning meditation spot: sitting on the retreat house porch. Listening to the rain. Watching hummingbird visit his favorite perch atop the hazelnut tree. Anticipating the next round of flowers to bloom. A blessed morning in a very special place.

There's always more to see and learn here at Starseed. Today's wildlife awareness:

Here's a new piece for my 'What's Bugging You in the Garden" program: porcupine damage. Apparently they climb trees and gnaw of branches to get the sap. More research in.progress. New damage to an old pear tree this morning at Starseed Healing Sanctuary. They have also frequented the weeping willow here.

Sanctuary Farmer Needed
We are seeking farmers in residence - an individual or couple - and sanctuary stewards for the 2018 growing season. In July, Starseed will be hosting a month-long Restorative Culture gathering, and the intention is that the farmers in residence will grow as much food as possible for that gathering. Farmers would ideally arrive in March or April and stay through the growing season until October. If a good match, the hope would be that these farmers in residence would consider long-term community membership at Starseed.

General information

Located in the hills of the northern Berkshires on 130 acres of fields, forests and wetlands, Starseed serves as a spiritual center and energy anchor for personal and planetary transformation. People come here to connect with Spirit, the Land, their inner Self, and other Kindred Spirits. Our mission is to facilitate the process of awakening to being fully conscious human beings by offering a supportive, nurturing environment of Sanctuary and assisting people to deepen their relationship with Spirit and return to wholeness. Starseed offers an interfaith approach to spirituality that honors the divine in all life and seeks harmony with all life. We provide a place for people of all faiths to reconnect with God/Spirit/Source and deepen their experience of Oneness. We steward the land and anchor energy here as we co-create sacred space. We draw upon the energy of Spirit and the land to experience rejuvenation and healing on all levels. In the heightened energy of this Sanctuary, people can more readily connect with Spirit, receive clarity about their soul purpose, and return home to themselves. We offer a variety of holistic workshops, sacred ceremonies and healing retreats that empower people to transform themselves and the world.
