Rabbit has blessed the Chestnut Lodge with abundance…an abundance of babies! Momma Rabbit dug out a little hutch between the fire pit and the lodge pit and gave birth to a bunch of baby bunnies. The little ones won’t be out of the hutch in time for our August 26 lodge. Rabbit is inviting us to RESCHEDULE our ceremony.
The next lodge is scheduled for Saturday, September 16.
In the meantime, receive the gift of Rabbit Medicine —fertility (of ideas, dreams, not just babies!!), the ability to move ahead with leaps and hops, and the power of our tears. And, of course, the medicine of Adorableness!! 🙂
NOTE LATER START TIME! For summer lodges, we are starting later in the day to take advantage of shade and slightly cooler temperatures. Please make sure you come to lodge fully hydrated. Avoid caffeine. While some people fast or eat very little before lodge, we recommend for those new to lodge that you have a healthy meal midday.
