Full Moon Ceremonies & Stone Soup!
This year’s full moon ceremonies will be combined with a stone soup tradition so that we may get to know each a little better, and extend ourselves a little more. What is stone soup dare you ask? It is a lovely and meaningful way that people in community come together to break bread, share stories, and build relationships. You will find below a quote from Wikipedia describing the folklore behind the stone stoup tradition.
We will gather at 5:30 pm for every full moon for the winter months, adding an ingredient to the pot to boil. (Later times for spring and summer to be announced in the future)
Dinner will be shared around 6:15 after the magical blend is ready. Once dinner is over, we will make our way into the Art of Soul Care studio to celebrate the ritual of the given month’s full moon!
Please come join us, so that you may experience a sense of spiritual renewal, community connection, and belonging. Hope to see you soon!
Contribution – $10.00 – Covers material costs, utilities, and time. Plus an ingredient for the soup!

What is Stone Soup?
“Stone Soup is an old folk story in which hungry strangers convince the people of a town to each share a small amount of their food in order to make a meal that everyone enjoys. In varying traditions, the stone has been replaced with other common inedible objects, and therefore the fable is also known as axe soup, button soup, nail soup, and wood soup.
Story – Some travelers come to a village, carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Upon their arrival, the villagers are unwilling to share any of their food stores with the hungry travelers. Then the travelers go to a stream and fill the pot with water, drop a large stone in it, and place it over a fire. One of the villagers becomes curious and asks what they are doing. The travelers answer that they are making “stone soup”, which tastes wonderful and which they would be delighted to share with the villager, although it still needs a little bit of garnish, which they are missing, to improve the flavor. The villager, who anticipates enjoying a share of the soup, does not mind parting with a few carrots, so these are added to the soup. Another villager walks by, inquiring about the pot, and the travelers again mention their stone soup, which has not yet reached its full potential. The villager hands them a little bit of seasoning. More and more villagers walk by, each adding another ingredient. Finally, the stone (being inedible) is removed from the pot, and a delicious and nourishing pot of soup is enjoyed by travelers and villagers alike. Although the travelers have thus tricked the villagers into sharing their food with them, they have successfully transformed it into a tasty and nutritious meal which they share with the donors.” Wikipedia
