Come join a group of kindred change-makers for an enchanted Halloween Caper Weekend.
PROGRAM: We will explore the biggest questions of our times through serious play. You will leave having had a uniquely spirit-rich connection with new and old friends, with the insights or renewed awareness about your self, your presence and your future.
This is the 22nd year the KCC community of kindred seekers attuned to spirit and conscious change will be offering another series of intimately-scaled, small group learning experience. These experiences are more self-directed than a typical workshop.
We will collectively create our own rituals grounded in ancient wisdom traditions. Through deep inquiry, group movement, mask making, music, poetry and other creative actions we will investigate and celebrate this unique and soul-filled time of year.
At the Saturday night bonfire, participant teams will share what they have discovered and created, each focusing on one of the four sacred directions. You will leave the weekend refreshed, having had a uniquely playful and spirit-rich connection with kindred seekers. Expect new insights and renewed awareness about your self, deepen your presence and clarify your future.
LOCATION: The Berkshires and their history of enchantment serve as the perfect setting for this Halloween mystery weekend. Our experience will be held at the Inn at Shaker Mill Farm, originally built in 1824 as a stone gristmill, by members of the Shaker community who settled this area about two hundred years ago. The mill was rebuilt as an Inn fifty years ago and the buildings and land are now being renovated and re-envisioned by long time KCC Attuned to Spirit community member, Michael Pergola. The stone mill and the land in the autumn landscape will be truly a beautifully scenic environment to engage in this deep dive experience. The Inn is just fifteen minutes west of Lenox, Massachusetts and forty minutes east of downtown Albany. Meals are created by our own farm-to-table caterers who excel at addressing your special dietary needs.
We look forward to you joining us for this unique experience - come and connect with kindred spirits!
Cordially, your Fall KCC Design Team
