Here in Oregon, we are still in the middle of summer busy-ness. And yet, I can feel a shift beginning to happen. There is that particular hint of coolness to some mornings already — fall is coming!
Fall! How I love thee! The brilliant turn of the leaves, the crisp coolness, that specific shade of blue sky. And also… the autumnal equinox.
The autumnal equinox:
The autumn equinox, when the hours of daylight once again equal the hours of darkness, offers a moment to pause, shed the heat/activity of summer, and prepare to enter into a time of increased silence and introspection.
Ritually, the autumn equinox offers a potent time for us to spend a moment together in sacred space and align with the incoming season.
It offers the medicine of celestial balance (perfect balance of light and dark) that, if we take a moment to receive it, can bring increased balance and harmony into our human bodies as well.
Two Equinox Celebrations
Would you like to celebrate the equinox in a ritual way?
If so, here are two upcoming ritual events celebrating the equinox. It would be wonderful to celebrate with you!
Ancestral SoulCollage® — Equinox Celebration: bridging the worlds of ancestors and art, this day long, in-person event offers a potent opportunity to be in ritual with your well, wise ancestors while also engaging in the powerful process of SoulCollage®.
As this ritual-workshop will be held the weekend of the equinox, we will be exploring the specific themes of light/dark balance including asking our ancestors for guidance around how to live in a world filled with both so much pain and such deep joy and beauty.
Don’t live near me or don’t want to travel?
No worries. 🙂 This next event is for you!
On Friday, September 20 at 10am Pacific, I’ll be facilitating a 75-minute Virtual Equinox Ritual. Offered on a sliding scale, my intention for this ritual is to offer a moment for you to pause, to align with the incoming season, and to be held and nourished by the balancing energies of the equinox.
As this is a ritual event, I won’t be doing much teaching/explaining (although your questions will be welcome). Instead, we will truly be entering sacred space together. Learn more and register here.
Ok, love, this is all for now.
