Spring Equinox Celebration
Birthing Peace Celebration
A Call to New Beginnings
We invite you to join us in the celebration of this magical time of year where we are called to join with nature in the exuberant process of rebirth.
Spring calls us to shake off the heavy winter mantle, to shift our energies and get ready for the fertility of a new season. In Spring the Earth is alive, ripe with possibilities - and so are we.
The Spring Equinox celebration offers a sacred space to ponder and give thanks for the dream-time and inward journeying of winter, and vision what it is that you wish to seed for the coming season. As you set your intentions and let the gentle Spring breezes and warming days soften your heart, you join the process of creation and the shaping of your tomorrows.
Protection, Fertility, Wisdom, Strength, Gratitude and Joy are the essences we call upon to breath new life into what is yearning to burst forth in oneself and the Earth.
The Birthing Peace Celebration is an opportunity to generate together a flow of Peace energy which we offer to our Earth Community to bring peace and ‘a fertile tomorrow' to all it touches.

"Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone.
Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring."
~ William Alexander
About the Spring Equinox
Spring Equinox, also know as Ostara (Eostre), occurs in the middle of March approximately March 21st. It marks the beginning of Spring and the time when days and nights are of equal length. In many traditions this is the start of the new year.
Ostara (Spring Equinox) is the beginning of the fertility festivals. Buds begin to push their way through the earth to reach the strengthening sun's light; animals breed; the energies of Nature shift subtly from the torpor of Winter to the exuberant activity of Spring. It is a time of new beginnings, of action, of saying goodbye to the old and making room for the new. The light will continue to increase until the Summer Solstice June 21st.
The 21st of March ~ Spring Equinox
