Rosh Chodesh Av which occurs on July 13th, YP will be deep in the ADK mountains immersed in mycology research, pausing to discover how decomposition and transmutation energetics of these species can inform how she understands this month of brokenness and how in the disassembly process inifinite potential and medicine for evolved rearising can emerge if guided through attuned observation, mourning, and praising. She encourages you to dedicate time this Shabbas to ponder and connect with the wholeness inherent in the brokenness you experience in your personal life and the world we all share.

2These circles are offered with a suggested donation ($7-18) to support Roots & Trails' programming as well as to contribute to the RHM building fund.
From: Grounded in ancient times when our ancestors lived closed to the land honoring the Divine Feminine, Roots & Trails offers dynamic, curiosity-centered, ecological education & mentoring; rooted in honoring the enduring Abenaki Original Peoples of this land, they call N'dakinna, while we investigate and share diverse practices across the Jewish spectrum from exodus wilderness to kabbalistic to hasidic through renewal in the modern diaspora. In acknowledging the displacement of peoples from their homelands, participants are invited to consciously explore, experiment, relax into, and be empowered to support justice, healing, reclamation, and peace momentum in the world through these portals into interfaith networks.
How: Roots and Trails supports individuals, families & organizations in Jewish, interfaith multi - generational rituals, ceremonies, rites of passage processes, retreats, workshops, and collaborative projects that contribute to an evolving network of cocreative biocentric culture rehabilitation. Nurturing these core relationships allows ancestral roots of all traditions to engage together in the medicine work of equality and balance.
