March 16 - March 25, 2020
Join us as we celebrate the journey from darkness into light. The Vernal Equinox marks the point in Earth’s calendar where the duration of night and day is equal. In our hemisphere the darkness and cold of winter shifts into the renewal of roots and bulbs and seeds as they enter into the renewal of life and light. We too, in our inner lives, find new energy and possibilities for the longings of our own deep spirits.
For thousands of years the passage into spring has held deep meanings for both the outer and inner worlds. Each culture has found its unique ways of celebrating new life and expressing joy and gratitude for its promises of abundance and beauty.
As this present generation faces into unpredictable signs of climate disruption, species loss and the implications of our human behaviors in bringing on these crises, we search for deeper wisdom in our marking of this profound seasonal journey.
We will open the portal of The Vernal Equinox on March 16 at 2PM and we will close the portal on March 25 at 2PM. We encourage everyone to find some time in these days and nights surrounding the actual equinox on March 19, to gather with others where you live to enter this mystery of Earth renewal.
