Community Experience Weekend @ Sirius Community | Shutesbury | Massachusetts | United States

A weekend of immersion in the life of a spiritual community – the first weekend of every month.

This is a work-exchange, community experience weekend.

Guests are welcomed sometime Friday afternoon or evening (some don’t arrive until Saturday morning). After dinner with the community, and maybe a sauna or hike through our gardens and grounds, some time is spent visiting with members and other guests. This times usually includes a period of orientation, along with Q & A.

Breakfast in the Community Center is self-serve, and followed at 9:00 by an attunement circle. Members and guests spend the rest of the morning working together on various community projects and chores. It’s what we call our Saturday of Joyful Productivity.

A Planetary Healing Group Meditation is held at 12:30, and is immediately followed at 1:00 by a hearty organic vegetarian lunch. After cleanup (everyone pitches in), work resumes until 5:00, after which people have until the 6:30 dinner bell to relax and play. The evening is free time. Some spend it exploring local valley locales, and others stay on-site, reading, visiting, or attending one of our own nighttime events – a coffee house, talent show, movie viewing or discussion group.

Sunday consists of more free time, during which most folks participate in our Open House Sundays, a regular event ending in the mid afternoon.

Cost for the whole weekend is only $50, which covers both overnights and six meals. Contact the guest department office at 413 259-1251 or to register in advance.
