Friday, Sept 21st....6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the Autumn Equinox is the start of our Fall Season (not as noticeable for us in Florida). This year, it falls (no pun intended) on Saturday, September 22nd.
Equinox occurs twice annually. Once in Fall and once in Spring. It is the day when our daytime and nighttime are equal and the sun is directly over the celestial equator.
The Autumn Equinox symbolizes a change in our season and a new change for us. We go through cycles and stages in our inner spiritual journey in life just as in nature. It’s a time to look for harmony and balance.
The Harvest Moon is the full moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox. This year, it occurs on Monday, September 24th.
It has long been a time to honor the summer-grown crops. The Harvest Moon is special because it rises less than 30 minutes after sunset. Most often, the moon rises 50 minutes after the setting sun. This abundance of bright light gave farmers more time, for several days in a row, to harvest all their hard summer labor.
The Harvest Moon is a time for us to honor what’s important and release all that keeps us from harvesting our true desires. We’ll want to harvest the efforts and intentions we set earlier in the year for our life’s path and let go of things we cannot change or things we have outgrown.
We’ll be asking for harmony and balance by showing gratitude for our abundances and cutting out what no longer serves us. Just as in nature, one must clean out the old crops and prepare the ground for growing new. We too must clear out the old to prepare and make room for the new growth the universe wants us to have.
During this healing workshop, we will write our own private inventory listing of what we are ready to release, meditate and receive Reiki Healing, recite the release prayer outside under the Harvest Moon and burn our list releasing it into the universe.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing on many levels. Reiki is both powerful and gentle. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance and has many benefits for both client and practitioner, including altered states of consciousness and spiritual experiences. This is not a movement practice, but simply a healing gift of energy. Please come dressed comfortably and ready to relax on your yoga mat with blankets and bolsters to support you! Open to all, no prior experience necessary.
*Pre-registration is highly recommended, as space is limited and this workshop sells out every month!
