5:00 pm Community Announcements followed by...
Zoom Ritual: Spring Equinox (online with Laura)
Spring equinox means it’s time to prep our garden beds. What do we need to weed out? How do we prepare the soil? Join us for these and other garden metaphor questions as we celebrate the start of the light half of the year.
The ritual will include use of a candle and interactions with a vessel of water, so please feel free to bring a lit candle and a container with water where you can touch the water. We’ll be using a Druid circle-casting and will be looking for four volunteers to speak the elemental calls and thanks – scripts will be shared via Zoom chat day-of.
6:00 pm Zoom Closing Circle (with Jayson)
6:30 pm Zoom meeting closes
Descriptions of In-Person Events:
6:45 pm Gather in person at Meridian Playground park
7:00 pm In-Person Ritual: Preparing the Soil (with Stephanie)
We celebrate the beginning of spring and the time of the waning moon by first removing from our lives the obstacles to growth, then adding fertilizer to encourage a bountiful harvest. Metaphorically speaking, that is!
