Join us for this harvest festival that encourages us to “reap what we sow,” both literally and figuratively. It is when Light and Darkness are equal (since day and night are the same duration). Thus is it a time to express gratitude, complete projects and honor a moment of balance and bounty. May we rest, relax and reflect in solitude, with family and friends, and in the "Presence" of our Earthly abode.
Sunlight waning, dark impending,
Warmth behind us, cold ahead.
Gather harvest, not for hoarding,
Share the bounty, spirits fed.
Day and Night be equal partners,
Harmony, the Dance of Life--
Gifts of Gaia, behold her treasures,
Gratitude replacing strife.
The Celtic Holiday of Lughnassah takes place at the midpoint between the Summer Solstice and the Autumn Equinox. It can be celebrated in several different ways. In ancient Irish mythology, it is said to represent the Funeral Feast and Games created by the god Lugh to honor the life and sacrifice of his stepmother, Tailtiu. It can also be a time to give thanks for the First Harvest of the growing season.
People of all ages are welcome. Childcare can be provided with advance notice.
