Gathering - Veriditas: the Greening
The term Veriditas, the "Greening", refers to plant life and their medicinal healing, but also as evidence of the spiritual vitality of the divine that flows within the earth and everything in it. Join us as we explore and experience the cyclical green time within and around.

About the Event
Hildegard of Bingen, Writer, Mystic, Visionary and Healing Practitioner during the Middle Ages, brought to life the term, 'Veriditas,' giving voice to the living, healing, creativity of green. Of plant life as medicinal for the body, but also as the spiritual creative flow of the divine. We will gather with one another, with the plant and creaturely life of Hone Quary, to explore the lush green creative power that is sprouting around and within.
We will meet at Hone Quarry, either at the day-use picnic area (where the stone picnic structure and the little wooden bridge is) or in the campground. Look for our Church of the Wild sign in the ground FIRST at the parking lot at the day-use area. IF YOU DON'T SEE IT, please keep driving to the campground and circle through to find us. (Sorry to shout with the capital letters... it's just that we're aware of people getting out of the car and walking into the day-use area when we don't have the sign up which means we aren't meeting there] and we don't want to miss you!)
Bring a folding chair or blanket, your reuseable water bottle, bug spray if you'll need it, journal and pen if that's you. If you'd like to share a poem or quote about the green time, or something from Hildegard if you're already are acquainted with her, please bring it!
Your GPS will bring you right to Hone Quarry, but please know you will not have WiFi or cell service once you get out there. So just turn on the GPS when you leave your house and leave it on and it'll be fine. The walk out to the meadow or camp sites is easily accessible, with some small rocks in the path to the meadow. There are pit toilets at Hone Quarry.
If you have any questions or need some help with directions, please text before Sunday at noon. 540-405-9201. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
