August Full Moon Ritual
The bright light of the Full Moon reflects a time of illumination and abundance. This is a powerful time to give thanks and to acknowledge the beauty of life and all you have brought into being. Energy is heightened, thus emotions are amplified. Together, let's honor this moment of culmination!

About the Program
AN EMPOWERING JOURNEY OF SELF-RECLAMATION & REMEMBRANCE
The ebb and flow of nature's rhythms invites you to enter into a deeper relationship with your own inner nature and into the embrace of your ecological belonging.
All of life is a sacred dance between the polarities of light and dark, expansion and contraction, giving and receiving, movement and stillness. We rise to greet the light of day and lie down to rest in the dark of night. Our emotional experiences range from the depths of sorrow to the heights of ecstasy, from deep belly laughter to gut-wrenching grief. Breathing in, your heart rate quickens, breathing out it slows.
Our nature is cyclical, and yet under the influence of industrial growth society we have learned to deny the inherent ebb and flow of life and instead move through life under great pressure, ever quickening speed, and overstimulation which is ultimately disorienting and ungrounding.
When we attend to the dance of life by attuning to nature's moon tides, we counter the movement of modern capitalism by creating more space for intentionality and invite a new embodied narrative to emerge. We begin to touch into and nurture an ancient part of ourselves we have been conditioned to forget - our ecological, wildish selves.
By coming together each New and Full Moon, we will begin to harness the power of the moon available to us as we learn how to work with and align to the ebb and flow of life's continual unfolding.
