22nd Annual Kindred Spirits Circle in Hot Springs, NC is August 21-24, 2014.

If you have yet to attend this event, imagine yourself sitting in a circle of trans-spiritual peers, free to share and explore your inner being and unique journeys in the timelessness of every present moment. Imagine the possibilities, the permutations, the synergy, and the magic of converging in sacred space to both continue the legacy of our ancestors, and experience ourselves anew. Reawakening, healing, empowering, envisioning, creating artful ceremony -- all in reverence, in the balance of nature.

This Circle continues to be hosted at an enchanting pre-Civil War manor house on the Appalachian Trail in the oldest mountains on the planet. We frolic in pristine mountain streams, share stories around the campfire, enact ceremonies on a high bald mountain peak, and are nourished with healthy vegetarian meals graciously prepared by our host who happens to be "family", a born-again Buddhist, and an eco-activist.

We have space for 16 people, and everyone is on a first-come-first-served basis. As usual, this retreat is scheduled from Thursday 5pm to Sunday noon. A deposit of $125 will reserve your space, and is refundable up until 6 weeks before the retreat. The balance of $125 will be due at the retreat. Those wishing to stay one or more nights at the Tree House in Black Mountain before or after the retreat may do so at a reduced rate of $40/night/person.

Please let us know your intention as soon as possible, even if you are unable to register with your deposit at this time. Deposit checks should be made payable to "Kindred Spirits", and mailed to: Holly Boswell, 190 Tessie Lane, Black Mountain, NC 28711.

The Tree House is available for you to host your own retreat at any time, either solo, with a partner, or small group. Vision Quests and wilderness camping can also be arranged. Kindred Spirits is a 501 c)3 educational non-profit organization.

We hope you'll be able to join with your own kindred spirits in the coming year.
