Starry Program with Mary Stewart Adams
September 11-13 (workshop times to come)

Mary Stewart Adams is a star lore historian, storyteller and author who has been immersed in the history of star knowledge for nearly 30 years. Mary is a member of the School for Spiritual Science, and a researcher in astrosophy. Her work with the New Images of the Zodiac from the original Calendar of the Soul began in the 1990s. Mary led the initiative that resulted in International Dark Sky Park designation for the Headlands property in Emmet County, MI, which later resulted in the State of Michigan passing legislation to protect the night sky over an additional 23,000 acres of state park and forest land. Mary writes and speaks extensively to local, national and international audiences on our relationship to the night sky and its cultural consequences, and has received numerous honors for her work. In addition, she is a member of the International Dark Sky Places Committee of the International Dark Sky Association, protecting and designating dark sky sites around the world.
