Alma de Mujer Medicine Wheel Garden Blessing & Spring Equinox Celebration

You are invited!
Sunday, March 21, 2010 4:00 p.m.
Alma de Mujer Medicine Wheel Garden Blessing & Spring Equinox Celebration

Please join us in Marsha's Garden for the Alma de Mujer Medicine Wheel Garden Blessing, where we will bless the seeds, shoots, and tender plants while rejoicing in life and creation. Come and plant seeds of love, peace and joy into our hearts and the heart of Mother Earth.

Sunday, March 21, 2010 4:00 p.m.

Please bring your drum, flute or rattle and some food to share in community.

On Vernal Equinox, the cosmic scales are balanced in perfect equilibrium: equal day, equal night. With bone cold winter behind, we celebrate the life force, rejoicing in a fresh, clear, bright spring day. Tender stems and shoots push through the fertile soil, buds explode, and the Egg of Spring hatches a living creation! Eostre, Goddess of the divine fertile female, calls to the spirit of youth in each woman, man and child.
