Come join us as we share in deep and profound celebration of our lives together on sacred and wild land.
We’ll be in ceremony for three full nights, and two half nights, around the fire.
Our facilitators and teachers will help guide the circle on a profound journey helping us to access and reclaim our own core, our inspiration, and our connection to nature. Forestdance is a ceremonial gathering; a rite of passage.
This beautiful gathering has shaped a community. It has reignited passions for so many talented people, reclaiming inspiration, and has shown an alternative way to co-exist that many of us have stopped dreaming about long ago.
This gathering is a celebration of all that we are and all that we can be. Due to the deep nature of this event, to cultivate a powerful space, we have a no re-admittance policy. We are grateful to hold our 35th Forestdance gathering in our location at Camp Timber Trails in Tolland, MA. Thank you for showing up and bringing your magic and medicine.

Frequently Asked Questions
“Forestdance is a gift of love, earned through sincerely bringing one’s self, peeling back layers and opening to what is present. Although I often arrive with my defenses up, I always leave blown wide-open by my capacity to love and be loved, by the community and what we can hold together. It is powerful medicine to learn that our intentions and safe-space are all that is needed to touch the divine and be returned to self.”

“Thanks again for all the work you do to create this amazing container where we can safely go deep within if we choose. For me; well, it’s my favorite thing to do–movement and sound coming from now with all the power of creation, for its own sake! A chance to be fully present, listening for the next step, letting go and just feeling/expressing where it takes me next. Listening for the space to respond “I hear you!” sometimes in beauty, sometimes in pain, its bliss! And to do this with beautiful mindlike brothers and sisters with sacred intention and humor in our heart … well, pure yummminess!!”
