The Winter Solstice Circle marks the first event to be held in the brand new Sanctuary Room at Grandmother Cherry Sanctuary! Join sanctuary stewards Rae Carter and Mitch Pauley for a three hour circle to share and experience finding light in the dark.

12 participants are invited to join this intimate circle and all identities are welcome.

We will be in circle together for the three hour timeframe. Please arrive early to park and settle in so we can start the circle at 3:00.

Please bring a water bottle and feel free to bring a snack.

We will gather in the brand new Sanctuary Room at Grandmother Cherry Sanctuary in Plainfield, Vermont. The Sanctuary Room is located on the second floor. Please learn more about the sanctuary vision which includes plans for how we can make the sanctuary physically accessible. Please bring what you need to support yourself in circle. There is a friendly dog and cats on the premise who may participate at times. Grandmother Cherry Sanctuary is located on mountain roads.

Directions and additional information will be provided upon registration.


Please Consider Offering a Donation

Donations will go towards supporting the sanctuary vision to become a four-season event, retreat, and respite space.
