CSQ - Events


Join Carolina Spirit Quest at a new weekend event this January - Winter Quest! So many of us have jobs that don't allow us to listen to the cycle of the natural world, particularly in the winter when Nature's message is one of rest and renewal. The purpose of Winter Quest is to listen to the rhythms of Nature and to do quiet reflective and nurturing rituals and activities. The event will follow a pattern similar to that of a Spring Quest - but on a more leisurely pace and scaled back participation. Registration is limited to 32 participants, so look for the catalog this fall and respond quickly!

A few of the workshops lined up for this event are:

  • Journaling as a Spiritual Practice - Sharon Hill
  • Creating and Using Prayer/Meditation Beads - Tammie Ward
  • Kitchen Witchery - Bread-making and Herbal Foods - Tamia Buckingham
  • Massage: The Gift of Pleasure - Dick Merritt
  • Hiking in the Winter Landscape - self-guided on Park Trails

Worship - our Opening Ritual will include the construction of our Community Altar. The Main Ritual highlights the sharing of our talents - along the lines of a salon. The Closing Ritual focuses on what we each carry away from our journey.

Housing - The Fairy Stone Lodge and Cabins are heated and air-conditioned. Linens are provided. Full kitchens and bath facilities are incorporated in the lodge and each cabin. The lodge is handicapped accessible. For more information on the Park, please visit the Virginia State Parks website at www.dcr.state.va.us/parks.

Food Service - Meals will be planned and ingredients purchased, however the preparation of the meals would be split amongst the participants, focusing on the spirituality and magick of kitchen pursuits. In fact, the preparation of the Saturday Evening Dinner is even one of the workshops, focusing on herbal foods and beverages.

For more information, contact Tamia Buckingham (Director) at tamiab@earthlink.net, Tammie Ward (Workshops Manager) at thorsmountain@hotmail.com, or Dick Merritt (Communications Manager/Registrar) at dickmerritt@mindspring.com.
