*This is not specifically to separate men and women- we all have a bit of both masculine and feminine sides in us! This is designed to nurture Both sides and aspects of ourselves. 🙂 So go to whichever site will feed your soul more for the weekend to bring you into balance! If you need some down time to relax, head over to site one, Yantanin and be pampered and loved on! If you’re feeling like you want to be more connected to the earth and fire, letting your wild side out, head on down to Masintin! BOTH Groups will meet at The SACRED DRUM CIRCLE on SUNDAY NIGHT before the eclipse where we will drum into the morning! People are free to come and go as they please and if they would like to stay back at the site and relax that’s more than fine!
 
There will be Community Meals so anything you feel led to bring is fine, we will have food as well. If you have strict dietary needs, please take that into consideration and feel free to bring whatever you need, we will always have room in the fridge! By all means reach out with any Questions, Concerns, Ideas or Anything Else!
