Connect ~ Belong ~ Engage
“Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.”~ Henry David Thoreau
Please join us for this NEW StarHouse offering! In 3-month seasonal arcs throughout the coming year, we will cultivate conscious relationship with the weaving of the moon’s dance with the Sun, the planets and the stellar beings of the zodiac.
New Moon gatherings have been hosted at the StarHouse for nearly 30 years, under star-filled skies in this mountain temple west of Boulder, Colorado.
We recently began offering New Moons via Zoom ~ catalyzed by current global events, and recognizing the magic of StarHouse is rooted here, yet relevant everywhere. This has resulted in amazing connections from across the globe!
Among the expanding global community, we have been sensing a deepening desire for connection, belonging and engagement with the StarHouse, Sacred Sites, surrounding wild lands, and the other people who nurture this Sacred Place.
We are now offering a more intimate group experience: a series of 3-month New Moon Journeys matching the seasonal cycle of Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer.
NEW MOON JOURNEY: AUTUMN 2020
You are invited into a very special experience.
Musica universalis ~ the harmony of the spheres ~ is an ancient philosophical concept that regards the movements of celestial bodies (the Sun, Moon, and planets) as a form of music. By tuning in to this harmony, we can better connect to the rhythms and cycles within ourselves and the world around us.
Those connections are an infinite wellspring of wisdom, abundance, vitality and life-force from which we can re-source ourselves.
When rooted in a sacred place and weaving with a group of fellow travelers, this practice is all the more powerful! Experience your place in the order of things archetypally, mythically, and cosmically ~ while witnessing the patterns and interrelationships that emerge through the contributions of each individual participant.
Here’s what you can expect during the 3-month New Moon Journey:
Monthly Online Gatherings
Held via Zoom very near to the time of the New Moon phase. Group calls run from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. They will be recorded and circulated in case you cannot join live for any reason!
**Autumn 2020 Journey gathering dates are: October 16, November 13 and December 13. Click here to register.**
During these interactive calls, we will explore:
- the position of the moon in relationship to other celestial beings
- the influence and gifts of the zodiacal being hosting the New Moon at that time
- the plant allies and their contributions that are highlighted
- an encoded star poem message that reaches across dimensions of time and space
- one or more meditations to invite deeper contemplation, insight, communion, and more
- an embodiment practice that enhances our physical connection with these lunar, plant, planetary and zodiacal beings
Sacred Rhythm Kits
Deepen your experience with a kit specifically designed to support you in your exploration of each New Moon and to carry you through your journey of the month-long lunar cycle.
These kits uniquely offer and cultivate direct connection to the StarHouse, Sacred Sites, surrounding wild lands, and the community that nurtures this Sacred Place. They are are an optional add-on, highly recommended for the journey but not required.
Kits include a curated selection of ritual items and may include:
- Hand-crafted herbal teas or remedies ~ flower essences, tinctures ~ from plants organically grown on the EarthStar land adjacent to StarHouse
- Nourishing body care treatments and/or self-care ceremony
- Star Poem card for remembrance and contemplation
- Sacred objects energetically charged at a StarHouse Sacred Site
- Inspired practices for embodiment, meditation, and more
Weekly Touchpoint Emails
Each week in between new moons, you will receive an email pulsing out key reminders, inquiries, and invitations to journeyers! The intentions will be to help you observe, articulate, deepen, and expand your personal lunar cycle practices and relationship to the new moon rhythm.
This means three communications between new moons – on days 7, 14, and 21 of the lunar cycle (day 28 will be the next new moon!).
As the group journey deepens, there may be opportunities for other connection points, as well, and there is always the invitation to participate in other related StarHouse offerings. One or two of these will be presenced in each weekly email!

What is a New Moon?
The Moon orbits the Earth monthly. The Sun appears to circle the earth daily. At Full Moon, the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth (the Earth between them), resulting in total sunlight reflected all night off the face of the Moon.
At New Moon, the Sun and Moon are “together” in the sky from our perspective on Earth, so that the Moon appears to be between the Sun and the Earth. At this point in the lunar cycle, direct access to the Sun’s gift of light and warmth is reduced, so we must find the radiance from within our own being. New Moons emphasize creativity from everyone—experiencing your own Sun shining from within.
What are Star Poems?
Over many years, David Tresemer has researched* the special quality when the Sun lies in each of the 360 degrees of the heavens ~ 12 great zodiacal beings, with 30 qualities a piece. When a person is born in the atmosphere of that quality, it colors their life experience. We are sharing the poem of this celestial moment to catch its mood. These potent poems of the day cannot be obtained in any other way. *The foundations of this approach are given in David’s book Star Wisdom & Rudolf Steiner.
Particular plants have been identified as messengers of planetary patterning. Master herbalist,Tracy Koivisto, will assist us to receive the message that comes with the planetary sphere most active at each New Moon and help cultivate a direct relationship with a corollary plant ally.
Awakening & Inhabiting Our Bodies
We explore the notion that a zodiacal being has gifted us part of our physical body ~ both in terms of structure (anatomy) and function. Led by Corin Blanchard, a Certified Rolfer™ in practice for 9 years.
