Plant life is arising from rhizome and bulb, from seed and stem, from leaf and flower bud. In the Northern Hemisphere an energy of emergence refreshes our growing edges. A fearlessness draws us into fresh air, encouraging us to unfurl into a new season. Join us as we gather to celebrate patterns of emergent greening in word and play. Take time to see the growing edges in your environment or in a virtual gallery provided for those who cannot get outside. Bring a blank piece of paper, some colorful (variations of green perhaps) mark making pens, crayons, pencils if you have them, AND an openness to plants’ ways of greening up and out. Following the pattern of circles at Kirkridge, we will explore our own roots and reaching, share reflection, and perhaps emerge with shades of green.
