A Day of Giving and Receiving from the Heart
This year our fundraiser is in honor of our dear
friend Carol Cain, who has so beautifully supported Starseed Sanctuary
in life and death. Her intention was to give the treasures she had
gathered in her life to a memorial gift shop at Starseed called Gentle Wind Gifts.
During our annual fundraising event we will be
opening this incredible memorial gift shop.
Honoring Carol's generosity of giving from the
heart, we are inviting you to give something from your heart. It can be
in the Spirit of the Native American Give~Away, where you give
something you love or something that you have cherished and no longer
need, something that someone else would really love to receive. It can
be a personal service that you offer, a sacred object, jewelry, art, or
anything of value that you give as a gift from your heart with the
intention of supporting the Sanctuary. Your gift can be for the silent
auction or the gift shop.
Your offerings to this fundraiser, for the silent
auction or the gift shop, can be dropped off or mailed to Starseed
by Friday September 17th, or you can write a
description of your gift on the attached
form, send it by email and bring your gift on the
day of the event. We would love for you to be here but if you can't
come please consider sending a love offering from your heart.
Renew your sacred connection with the Earth at
In our fast paced technological world we have become increasingly
disconnected from the natural world that sustains our body and
spirit. To bridge this gap, our EarthConnect program and
events offer opportunities for you to connect more deeply with the
rejuvenating and healing powers of nature.
The energy of the land and Sanctuary at Starseed is potent.
Whether it is spring, summer, fall, or winter, the beauty of the land
calls us home. We invite you to come on your own or come for
an event and spend time connecting with the land and the spirits of the
land. Please stay tuned for EarthConnect events in the coming
Starseed is a place for deepening into Spirit, a
place where people of all faiths can come to renew their connection
with the sacred and the divine.
As a healing Sanctuary, we hold sacred space and ground energy here so
that when people enter into this environment they might more readily
connect with Spirit. The heightened energy of the land and
sanctuary provides a supportive environment for connecting within and
We host many events throughout the year which are intended to help
people of all faiths connect with Spirit/Source/God. On the
first Sunday of every month we hold an interfaith prayers ceremony –
Prayers for the Earth and the People of the Earth. We also
hold ceremonies on the equinoxes and solstices to tap into the
heightened energy. For more information about these events,
please visit the Ceremonies page of our website. We also host
sweat lodge or inipi ceremonies a number of times per year, as well as
ceremonies from a number of traditions to assist people in connecting
Connection with Spirit is the primary starting point for much of the
transformation work we do here, and thus is incorporated into many of
the programs and workshops we hold here. Please check our
calendar for special SpiritConnect events or join us for one of our
regularly scheduled prayer ceremonies.
Starseed is a place where we can all come home to
ourselves. A lot of the transformation work that happens here
relies on people going within and finding their true self, their inner
self, their inner voice and learning to embrace, trust, and listen to
it. Much of the healing that happens here is self-healing and
thus relies on people working on their own selves and taking personal
responsibility for returning to wholeness. Through guided
retreats, programs and workshops, people are assisted in the process of
reconnecting with their own true Self.
Many people come to Starseed during major life transitions when they
are seeking direction and clarity of purpose. Some of our
guided retreats, programs, workshops and ceremonies are designed to
help people tune in to their own inner guidance and find the clarity
needed to move forward with their lives with strength and
vitality. Starseed is a wonderful place where one can be in a
supportive environment and community and undergo powerful personal
transformation work. From a weekend guided retreat, to a year
of live-in stewardship, Starseed offers many opportunities for people
seeking to reconnect with their own self.
Many artists have found themselves at home at
Starseed and have worked in concert with the spirits of the land to
co-create many wonderful works of art. One artist in
residence created numerous nature spirits out of earthen
materials. Many have captured the vital essence of the land
and sanctuary in photographs. Last summer, a group of
international artists visited Starseed for 10 days and created numerous
environmental art installations on the land including a snake which was
carved out of a birch tree, a 10 pointed fire-pit, a breathing room, an
alter for leaving offerings for animals. Numerous photographs
and videos were taken and are being made into a short film..
We will be hosting another environmental art event at Starseed in the
fall. Please stay tuned for details.
Starseed is a place where kindred spirits can
come together and meet and hang out with each other! We offer
numerous events throughout the year which offer opportunities to meet,
greet and socialize with new and old friends. At every
solstice and equinox ceremony and every Prayers for the Earth and the
People of the Earth, we always share a vegetarian potluck meal and lots
of good conversation and laughter. We also host numerous bon
fires, drumming circles, concerts and other events which are wonderful
opportunities to connect with others and share of ourselves.
We hope you will join us for an event soon.
