Midsummer: Casa Werma

from Craig Morman and Faith Killough, Co-Directors of Casa Werma in Patzcuaro, Mexico

Here at Casa Werma in Pátzcuaro, Mexico, we invited neighbors and friends from Pátzcuaro and nearby villages to a potluck in celebration of the first day of summer. The day was a bit rainy and cool, so we welcomed the arrival of summer from inside around the fire. We enjoyed good company and conversation, guitar accompanied sing-alongs, and some improvisational drumming and flute playing. It was great to have a mix of many generations present, often within the same family. The children enjoyed adventuring and playing frisbee and other games in the garden. We picked many avocados and chiles in the garden for people to bring home with them.

The local sangha in Pátzcuaro is still quite small, but there are many community members who are involved with Casa Werma either through work, the neighborhood, friendships, or a general interest in contemplative practice. It was great to have all of these people gathered at the same time to enjoy the day together, and get to know each other more. We hope to continue the tradition of celebrating the solstices and equinoxes here in Pátzcuaro.
