Whatever her name may be to you, the full April moon is a time for retelling in the renewed earth, and honoring the potential of the next growing year as it opens before us. It is a time of uncomfortable but necessary growth, risk taking, and kinetic energy.
In this inter-traditional, beginner-friendly group ritual on the evening of the full moon, we will gather under this powerful light and explore energy of the second full moon of the year.
Please be advised that there will be smoke offerings, light feasting, light physical activity (sitting and standing), chanting, percussion, and meditation. Attendees should be comfortable in the presence of animal curios, as well as some moderate participation.
$15 // Light refreshments provided for our ritual feast.
