Equinox Reflections - March 20, 2021
The word Equinox means ‘equal night’. It is a rare moment in the rhythm of the year when light and dark are in balance.
Cultural references are constantly feeding us stories and images that perpetuate the notion that light is good/holy and dark is bad/evil.
Yet, the reality of our earthly experience reveals that we live surrounded by examples of how goodness comes from the dark – like seeds in the soil of spring, the renewal of our nightly sleep and insights from the intuitive space of soul.
On the day of the Equinox, we would like to invite you join us as we create a space to imagine and ponder a different and life-giving way of understanding our relationship to light and dark.
During this virtual 30 minute session we will weave together inspiring words, gentle embodied connection and time for reflecting on the place and meaning that both light and dark hold in our lives. We hope you emerge with new insight, wisdom and some possible practices to facilitate further growth.
Registration for this event is now closed.
The event will be held on Saturday, March 20, 2021 from 1:30-2:00pm ET.
Before the event, a Zoom link will be sent via email to those who register.
