Open Full Moon Ritual: The Strawberry Moon


The strawberry moon. The rose moon. The lotus moon. The green corn moon. The windy moon. The moon when juniper berries are ripe. The moon of small planting. The violet moon. The moon of horses. The hoer moon. Moon when they hill indian corn. Moon when the hot weather begins. The full leaf moon. The moon of fattening up. The egg hatching moon. The moon of ripe berries.

Whatever her name may be to you, the full June moon is a time of honoring the full range of tactile pleasures of the body, deeply experiencing the senses, and celebrating the full richness of summer-swollen life.

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 latest 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.
