Children are a very important part of our collective process. They are the inspiration for us to create a better future, and to practice the skills and ancestral arts needed for place based culture. This year Kindle Cascadia has partnered with Moon’s Nest Playschool from Portland to create a robust children’s curriculum fostering our mission and values.

Invitation & Call
The Moon’s Nest Playchool is pleased to be partnered with Kindle Cascadia to offer adventure, play, and connection to the littles of this annual gathering. Our programming aims to provide support to the families of the Kindle community while engaging children in craft, ceremony, ritual, play, and story. It is important to our team that the children and families who chose to spend their Winter Solstice gathering with us, feel centered and supported throughout the gathering.
In this first year of implementing the children’s programing for the gathering, we hope to form meaningful memories, relationships, and traditions that will kindle us through the year and bring us back to each other in the next.
We are SO excited to start this work, and to cultivate magical Winter Solstice experiences for the children of the Kindle community and their families.
We do hope that you will join us this year as we honor the darkness, welcome the light, turn the wheel, and come home to each other.
