Winter Solstice Purification Lodge & Potluck

  • to
  • Spirit Canoe Lodge

    Call for directions, Warrensville, NC (map)

    36.460732 -81.518562

  • Call for directions
  • Align with the introspective gift of Winter by going within and looking at the past year's events and how it impacted you. Plant new seeds of intent for the coming year by making and decorating a prayer bundle to hang outside in nature releasing your attachments to “how” what you desire manifests. The bundles may be as fancy or simple as you like using natural materials like snake skin, fur, feathers, and ribbons. Infuse tobacco with your intent for the coming year. I have the tobacco, cloth, and some feathers to share;  you may bring any additional natural items you like.  Those of you that have made them before know they work! Bring a potluck dish to share in the feast afterwards.

    * 12-2pm create your tobacco bundles

    * 2pm Ceremony begins (newcomers arrive @ 1:30 for an orientation to this ceremony)

    There is no charge for this ceremony; contributions to the Lodge and gifts for Kelly and the fire crew are requested to maintain balance for what you receive. Once you RSVP I will send out the directions here and how to prepare for this amazing ceremony! Please send me your email so I can send you the information.

    I look forward to sharing time with you! Kelly
    Contact Kelly Jumping Mouse to RSVP: [masked]

    This is a sacred ceremony that is open to all men and women (unless gender specified) that desire to connect with the elements, the worlds of Grandmother Earth, to pray (for self, life and others), to purify (emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually), and who choose to grow and evolve as humans.  The alchemy of this ceremony creates a safe space for us to let go of what no longer serves us and connect with Spirit to receive guidance and healing.  Come join us in a circle of reflections that we can make a jump in our evolution on a personal and collective level.  There will be a potluck after the ceremony.

    Hi... I am Marge Maycock and am hoping this is the right place to write something about Kelly Clampitt and Spirit Canoe Lodge. My experience there was just what I needed. I walked into The Lodge and felt immediately at ease and at home. People were cooking, relaxing, and settling in for the " women's winter retreat" Everyone helped get delicious meals ready and clean up. We experienced ceremonies of what I considered to be held with wisdom, knowledge, and grace. We had meaningful group activities in an environment where people could and did, share authentically and safely within a a loving container. We hiked on majestically beautiful property which felt blessed indeed. One could feel free to do art projects such as prayer bundles, s few yoga sessions were held. It went much too quickly. I felt refreshed, renewed, and was able to go into my deep self and rest. Kelly is a warm ,friendly , experienced wise woman in her tradition. I very much look forward to returning.
