Sweat Lodge –
Tentative times are posted at the Sweat Lodge site and at Coffee Dragons, subject to ceremonial considerations.

About Stone Stacking in the River – We are asking that this once time honored and playful Drum ‘N’ Splash and Four Quarters tradition be allowed to slip into history and legend. We have discovered that the practice is destructive to the creek’s ecosystem and all the wee things that live there. It’s Time to Stop.

*As ever, schedule subject is to last minute changes, ceremonial time, brilliant and/or desperate improvisations, and the blessed weather!
