how much wood would a woodchuck chuck?

By golly, it’s January 27th and it’s high time I got you the calendar for February. I know y’all have been drumming your fingers on the desk, pacing your offices and chewing your fingernails waiting to get this. So, without further ado, here’s the February schedule of events with a little tidbit on either side.

Tuesday January 30th – Zikr – 7:15 PM – River Rock Commons (520 N Sherwood) – “What is zikr?” you might ask… it will be an evening of prayer, movement, lots of Arabic, heartful devotion, circles, music, and getting lost in the love of the Beloved – $7 suggested donation

Thursday, February 1st – Full moon ritual – 7 PM – 5000 Boardwalk #13 – if you filed taxes in 2006 you are welcome to attend (adults only please) – by donation – RSVP

And here are a couple things you might be interested in:

• Would you like to join us for another community campout? The dates for this summer have been set! Please mark you calendars: June 8, 9 & 10! More info will be forthcoming as the time draws near (does time draw?).

• Yvette Connell, an apprenticing Healing Touch Practitioner, needs to offer 50 more sessions to complete her training. Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy in which gentle touch assists in balancing your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. If you are interested in a session (by donation), call her at (970)481-9508. Her healing space is above the Garment District in Ft Collins. Appointments Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.

• Tuatha is playing at Avogadro’s Number in Fort Collins – Saturday, February 24th – the evening opens at 7 PM with Tribal Electra – Cover is $7 – bring your dancing shoes.

• Finally, I would love your assistance. I am looking for an office space to rent for my Spiritual Mentoring work. The training program I’ve been thoroughly enjoying is coming to an end this month and I am looking forward to setting up a more formal practice. If you have any leads on a Fort Collins rental, please let me know. Also, if you are interested in experiencing Spiritual Mentoring either one-on-one or in a group, please do contact me. I would love to get another group started soon. Thank you!

Gosh, I hope I didn’t forget anything. If I did you can always contact me to complain or ask clarifying questions: or (970)224-4797.
I apologize for the events I’m missing and/or canceling due to my travel plans this month.
And here’s my blessing for the widely celebrated, greatly revered, deeply inspired holiday of the Groundhog!

May the woodchuck awake
And with a tail shake
Greet the day
All cloudy and gray
So she can say,
“I’ll stay out and play!”
Send winter away
So we can careen
Into a green
And glorious spring
Hip hip hurray!
And stuff.

Okay, so it’s a little lame, but I think it works. Give me a break!
Many blessings!
