Spring Equinox Peace Circle and Ceremony: Nurturing the Soil of our Emergence
March 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Join me in this online Peace Circle and ceremony. Through ritual, ceremony, reflection and connection with the freshness of spring and light, we will nurture our spirits and the seeds of our soul’s dream.
Spring Equinox is a time of celebration where day and night, light and dark are in near equal balance. The Light is getting stronger and warmer as we in the North tilt towards the Sun. As the sun crosses the ‘celestial equator’, the increasing light triggers birds to sing and the sprouting of new life. With fertile soil, and seeds that have been nurtured over the winter, we have the ingredients for richness and abundance. This is an ancient and proven process – plant seeds in rich soil, tend with care, allow Nature to follow its own blueprint – and thus we plant the way for food, medicine and shelter. These are the first blessings of Life.
In this Spring Peace Circle, we will gather in circle and ceremony to support our inner/outer soil and our inner/outer environment to sprout and give fresh life to our planted seeds (dreams and goals). The quality of our soil is the quality of our (seeds) emergence and sprouting to new life.
We all have been impacted by the pandemic, by its heaviness, its longevity and its required awakening to the great inequities in our society. We have experienced many losses, many inconveniences, and for too many, deep disparities of available and essential resources. We need ceremony and ritual to restore hope in our spirit. We need circle and ceremony to be in heart-centred relations, dialogue and honest listening to the real stories shaping our lives. Because one day we will emerge from this pandemic – let us emerge with fertile soil and quality seeds sprouting to what will be the gift of new life.
Benefits of Peace Circle and Ceremony:
- Circle and ceremony renew us in its magic!
- An invitation to return to your authentic centre and listen for what seeks to emerge in spring’s freshness.
- Rituals of spring and a cup of tea …
What We Will Do Together:
- Listen to heart stories that transform our own experience and spirit.
- Be still and offer gratitude for what is and what has been and what will be.
- Join in the collective dream of building a kinder and more honest world together.
