What is the Stone Family Gathering?

It's what we make of it. A gathering of Tribe to raise stones.

5 days of togetherness, 5 days of Ceremony ending with new stones raised up to honor the community that created them.

In 2020 we met with out family in an All-Virtual format and raised almost 100 stones in a stone circle that spans 3 continents.  Join us this year as we return to Stone Song Center* in Flinstone PA to continue the work we started there.  

Stay tuned for more updates and we finalized the contract with the venue.

About the Venue: 

Stone Song Center is a welcoming space nestled in the Allegany Mountains of Western Maryland. It includes a beautiful farmhouse overlooking 23 acres of luscious land, a renovated barn that serves as a retreat center including an indoor meeting space, kitchen and bunk beds.  The land includes a small pond, and creek, a fire circle, nature trails, an apiary and an organic vegetable garden and orchard. 

Most of our attendees will camp and that costs will be included in the cost of registration.  Non-campers can upgrade to bunkhouse accommodations.  Stone Song Center does not allow personal camp fires. So be mindful of that when planning meals.  We will also offer a limited number of meal-plans for those attendees who prefer not to cook for themselves.  Pricing and details are still in the works, but stay tuned. 

Stone Song Center does not have trash-service so please plan to pack-out anything you pack-in. 

*Stone Song Center has asked that attendees get vaccinated before, or quarantine and test before attending.
