Full Snow Moon

February 9th    
Because we take our cues from nature, we have developed a Full Moon Series for 2020. Each month, we will pay homage to the beauty & wonderment that each unique full moon brings.

Since the heaviest snow falls during this month, native tribes of the north and east called February’s full Moon the Full Snow Moon. Some also called it the Full Hunger Moon, since harsh weather conditions made hunting difficult.

Full Moon Yoga: This yoga practice will calm the mind and draw your awareness inward. Moon Salutations are useful when energy is high and a tranquil, quiet presence is required. All Levels Welcome.

Full Moon Snowshoe: Join the Outdoor Adventure team on a moonlit snowshoe through our tranquil wooded 500 acres. Breathe in the crisp evening air and enjoy the natural sounds as we  tune out the chaos of life and tune in to the tranquil symphony of nature.  Your Full Snow Moon journey will conclude with a cozy campfire and s’mores.  A perfect ending to a relaxing day! 

Pen and Ink Drawing: Enjoy a class of dipping a quill in liquid ink to achieve the look of snow.  No experience necessary! All are welcome, just bring your creative spirit!
