At the bottom you will see some ONLINE EVENTS in which you can remotely participate. Below you will also see an update about me purchasing our Moon Lodge building and land. I am very excited to start offering ONLINE Yoga and my new Mindfulness Support Group called “15 Minutes of Silence”. I am offering these two online events back to back 5 days per week. See more details below.

For everyone in the Peru, Indiana area please go to our facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/818489981615103) and browse the Events section of that group. There you will see all of the events for the entire year. It’s a good idea to mark your calendar ahead of time for the year. The next Moon Lodge gathering for Peru is Sunday, February 5th, at 12:30 pm. This coming Thursday, January 26th, you will also see there an event called Songs of the Moon Lodge and Drum Circle in which we enjoy exploring the world of music in a safe and supportive atmosphere.

For everyone in the Indianapolis, Indiana area, please go to our separate facebook group for Indianapolis (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1534956906816001) to stay up to date for local events.

UPDATE ON THE MOON LODGE LAND PROJECT

As many of you know, this past winter solstice of 2022, I became the proud owner of 8 acres. It’s move in time! My plan is to improve and develop the land over the course of my lifetime and to leave it to the Moon Lodge for Women and Girls Nonprofit that I shall create this year. I have so many ideas – a retreat center, a retail store, campgrounds, a yoga studio, a restaurant that prepares healthy food grown in our gardens… I am honored to have the opportunity to cultivate a truly beautiful sanctuary dedicated to the wellbeing of all! Your participation in the above events is very helpful in my endeavors! In addition, I am gratefully receiving donations from benefactors that would love to support this dream becoming a reality. Feel free to send me a private message if you feel called to be such an angel benefactor.

Over the next couple of months I will slowly and gently move my household over to the land, making the transition as smooth as possible for my mother who lives with us. This past December 30th she celebrated her 82nd birthday! We are so grateful to have her with us. Her smile lights up the world!

I shall keep you posted on the progress as we develop the Moon Lodge Land Project in the coming years. Please hold in your heart the vision of this healing sanctuary coming into being in the most harmonious and joyful way possible! I hope you can come to visit when we are at that stage.

Wishing for you every joy in 2023 and beyond!
May you live with peace, health, wealth, and abundance!
Know that this community is here for you, holding space for your continued success.

All the best!

Sincerely,
Shakti Penelope
