Seven Stones is more than a cemetery—it’s a place to celebrate life. We’re so pleased to regularly host community events on our beautiful grounds!
Engage in a relaxing, meditative art class 5-7 p.m. Thursday, June 28 with Art Rocks and Seven Stones as we paint mandalas on smooth, black Baja beach stones. We will enjoy light appetizers and wine, then gather around a table with Art Rocks! owner and artist Tracy Eagle as she teaches us how to create simple, blissful art that will transport us to relaxation and peace.
Her proprietary paints and color palettes are gorgeous and, upon drying, form a textured surface that is not only beautiful to look at, but also mesmerizing to hold and to touch. These Touchstones make wonderful, unique mementos or gifts that can signify an event, feeling or reminder to the creator or receiver.
This class is limited to seven participants, ages 21 and older. Each student will receive an Art Rocks! kit with six paint colors plus white, two Baja beach stones, a practice sheet and tools. The cost is $45 per person; reserve your spot by clicking the link for tickets on the Facebook Event Page.
You do not need to be an artist! With Tracy’s instruction, you will create beautiful art that you will treasure in many ways.
Find your peace at Seven Stones. Join Registered Yoga Teacher Barbara Meadows for Yoga in the Gardens. The cost is $10 per person. Bring water, a yoga mat and a blanket or beach towel and explore your practice in this inspiring setting at the foothills of the Rockies!

Warm up for the following day’s summer solstice, the longest lit day of the year!
Wednesday, June 20: 7:15-8:15 p.m. Summer Solstice Eve Yoga Class by Kristin Scott
The longest lit day of the year in our hemisphere is upon us, beckoning plants from the earth, burning off the morning dew and calling us outdoors for energetic work and play. The fiery sun is the essence of our energetic center, the solar plexus chakra, where we find our own internal fire of intention, will, conviction. Join Kristin Scott, RYT, on the eve of the summer solstice as we honor the sun as it sets before us, then awaken to our own inner light.
Monday, June 25: 6-7 p.m. Kristin Scott, Yogi
