Located on a narrow strip of land between Lake Michigan and Torch Lake, the Stone Circle is a triple ring of large boulders forming a natural amphitheater, the center fire a hypnotic focus. The circular arrangements of boulders and setting were designed by Poet Bard Terry Wooten to capture the atmosphere of ancient cultures that gathered in family and community groups to exchange stories of everyday life and lore. Today the Stone Circle is reminiscent of a time before television and computers, when bards spun their tales to a an enchanted audience
At this Stone Circle every Saturday evening, from June 29 through Labor Day Weekend, Terry is host to other poets, storytellers, musicians and an audience of young and old who stir their tales in the communal brew that this unique recipe for communication offers. Please join us under a canopy of stars and add your spark to the fire.
For the past two years The Stone Circle documentary has been traveling the film festival circuit around the US and EU, winning the Snake Goddess Award in Greece. Filmed 30 miles north of Traverse City, and directed by Patrick Pfister, the film was produced in Barcelona, Spain with the sound mixed and mastered by Tom Weir, a Grammy Award winner in Los Angles.
