Online Autumn Equinox Gathering
The Autumn Equinox is a moment in time when the sun crosses and shines directly on the equator producing a day and night of equal proportion. It is a time of giving thanks and letting go as we prepare to turn inward for the dark time of the year.

About the Program
September is a tender time of the year as we begin to sense the presence of death draw near. Much has been building collectively over the past 6 months since the Spring Equinox. We have witnessed so much growth, expansion and collective power in many areas of our lives while at the same time we've also experienced devastating losses. For many, grief is bubbling up to the surface in our hearts as the vibrancy of summer begins to fade. Nature’s descent into the sacred dark is a reflection of the inner passage we all must make in the change of the seasons.
Just as we witness the final harvest take place (the length and timing of which depends on where you live), nature is preparing her return to the underworld, to give back to the roots. As the wheel turns toward darkness it is important that we too prepare ourselves to embrace our own inner root-tending, allowing old versions of self to get composted into the greater wholeness of who we are becoming. This means cultivating our inner foundation and grounding ourselves in practices that strengthen our resilience, faith and devotion in the pursuit of liberation for all kin and kind. We are being made ready to let go, release and unburden ourselves from all that is unresolved.
As time spirals through the cycles of life/death/rebirth, Autumn Equinox invites you to...
- Honor where you are and how you have changed.
- Reflect upon new insights and capacities that emerged from the growing season.
- Grieve loss and bow to the challenges and discomforts that have shaped you.
- Release and lay to rest anything that still feels heavy or unresolved.
- Call into your heart what you are most grateful for.
