Autumn Equinox Celebration
"Born Into This World ~ Honoring Your Incarnation"
Featuring musicians Paul Woznicki, Megan King and Laura Bertin, and The Arden In Motion Dancers led by Nina Sherak.

In person at the Buzz Ware Village Center
10:00am - Pre-service Meditation
10:30am to 12:00pm - Celebration of Life

This Sunday we continue our journey around the wheel of the year with another seasonal celebration of the Autumn equinox. 

This time of year offers us many themes to contemplate and celebrate as participants in the beauty and mystery of the natural world. We may find ourselves moving from sowing and planting into a time of harvest, and from lots of activity, travels and work, into a sense of winding down, rest and stillness.

From the perspective of our human life, we may be moving from youth to maturity or into our later golden years, "the autumn of life". In these ways we see ourselves as part and parcel of Nature's grand themes and rhythms. 

From a metaphysical viewpoint this time of year  presents the perfect setting to reflect upon another theme, that of our soul's moving from the world of pure spirit and into the  realm of earthly embodiment as human beings, as persons born into this world. 

Join us as we celebrate and honor our being born into this world, on this magnificent planet, our Mother Earth! Through music, ceremony, dance and readings we honor our birth and being as individuals and as a community of all life.

We are happy to have musicians Paul Woznicki, Megan King and Laura Bertin to provide a musical soundscape for our celebration. 

We also welcome the Arden In Motion Dancers, led by Nina Sherak, who will guide us in free-from dance as we explore and express our emotions and dreams. You are invited to re-live your birth or imagine yourselves as being re-born. What would you like to create and experience in your new life?

Our celebration will be outdoors, weather permitting, and we look forward to your being with us!

At our Summer Solstice celebration, some of you adopted an oak sapling to care for and nurture until the time of the Autumn equinox.

You are invited to bring your oak tree with you this Sunday for a formal blessing at the conclusion of our equinox celebration. Perhaps you would be willing to share a word or two about what you learned while caring for your tree!

Now begin looking for a place to plant your sapling out in nature as it will soon be the perfect time to transplant your friend into it's permanent home!
