The corn moon. The harvest moon. The chrysanthemum moon. The mulberry moon. The nut moon. The moon when the calves grow hair. The singing moon. The barley moon. The rice moon. The mood at the midpoint between growing and eating the corn. The moon of drying grass. The yellow leaf moon. The black butterfly moon. The paper man moon. The wavy moon. The snow goose moon. The ice moon. The moon of plenty. The moon when the deer paw the earth. The papaw moon. Moon when the plums are scarlet. Moon of her acorns.
Whatever her name may be to you, the full September moon is a time of sharing, community, and togetherness, where we awaken the mysteries that connect us all, regardless of path.
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.
