Winter Gathering

December 28, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - January 2, 2022 @ 3:00 pm

Come Together!

Come Together in Celebration, in Compassion, in Community, and in Creativity.

hands of all pigments

Come Together in Celebration with your Billy Brothers and Kin for The Billy Winter Gathering at Saratoga Springs from Tuesday, December 28th through Sunday, January 2nd!

Come Together in Compassion! Hold heart-space for each other as we emerge from our cocoons of isolation at our own paces, being extra attentive to personal space and acts of self-care.

Come Together in Community! Relax into soft couches and chairs in intimate conversations and snuggles. Celebrate rituals of Billy Magic and connectedness. Join in sacred Heart Circles. Relish the warm waters of the hot tub, and relax under the wide-open sky.

Come Together in Creativity! Bring an open heart and open mind for both giving and receiving. Share your visions and ideas to create a gathering of connectedness and joy. 

Let’s all Come Together!
