Summer Slips into Autumn

Maple leaf in autumnCan you feel the season turning? The sunlight is coming through the trees at a different angle, the days are getting shorter. We’re feeling a bit of a lull after the frenzy of summer. After drenching rains last week, we have had some delicious late summer warmth, then right around time of Autumn Equinox, the temps cooled down and the rains began in earnest. Isn’t it funny how the weather spirits seem to know when the season turns?

Because we are away for a wedding on Autumn Equinox week-end, we won’t be celebrating Autumn Equinox with our annual “Descent into the Darkness Ritual” this year. But we do have two special events to welcome the autumn season in early October.
1. Join us for our autumn season Sweatlodge on Sunday October 6th. Read more about that here.
2. On Saturday October 5, we are honored to host a Fall Harvest Ceremony facilitated by guides from the group “Origin Teachings of the Delicate Lodge.” Follow this link for more info about the event and this link for more info about the teachings of this group.

In any case…….get outside and enjoy the the gifts of nature–fresh air, trees, wind, sun, rain. Hope to see you at the Groves soon.
