Autumn Equinox Celebration & International Peace Day

On this particular day, also known as Mabon, people have come together since time immemorial to honour the bounty of the harvest, bid farewell to the summer days and prepare themselves for the long nights of the coming season.

In the Spring, physical and energetic seeds were planted, and through the generosity of the sun’s gaze, we experienced the blossoms and fruits of our creativity. Now, all has been fulfilled: our crops, adventures, relationships, endeavours and spiritual growth. 

Autumn Equinox is a day of equal light and dark, inviting us to gather around the hearth of balance and equanimity, to honour what has been given, taken, lost, disappointed and realized, to reflect upon and celebrate the ongoing gift of the terribly beautiful of these times we are in.

We choose to gather on the 21st of September, though the cosmological equinox may fall before or after this day each year, to energetically connect with over 200 countries and 80 million people celebrating the ‘International Day of Peace’, also known as ‘Peace the 21st’..

A Ceremony of Sacred Reciprocity

In ceremonial space, we offer our gratitude to the tremendous forces that give us Life, inspire, nourish, and heal us from season to season – Air, Fire, Water, Earth & Ether. Coming together in a community to collectively focus on the high frequency of Peace and the return of balance and harmony for all Beings, we create a powerful energy that animates our lives and ripples out to All of Creation.

We welcome you to join us in creating an intentional circle, to join the ancient tradition of celebrating the turning of the seasons through meditation, dance, visioning, storytelling, laughter, and food. Together, we will find our language of nurturance to tend our hearts throughout the colder, darker months, while aligning our Wild hearts with the Earth’s rhythms and cycles.

In 1981, the United Nations General Assembly, by unanimous vote, adopted Resolution 36/67 establishing the International Day of Peace (IDP), which stated in part, “…to devote a specific time to concentrate the efforts of the United Nations and its Member States, as well as the whole of mankind, to promoting the ideals of peace and to giving positive evidence of their commitment to peace in all viable ways.” The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982 on the opening day of the General Assembly.

In 2002 the U.N. General Assembly officially declared September 21st. As the permanent annual date for the International Day of Peace. For more information, click here.

About the Equinox

Seasons are opposite on either side of the Equator. In the Northern Hemisphere,  the equinox in September is also known as the autumnal (fall) equinox Northern Hemisphere and is considered the first fall.

In the Southern Hemisphere, it is known as the vernal (spring) equinox and marks the first day of spring.

The September equinox occurs when the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above Earth’s Equator – from north to south.

On the day of an equinox, daytime and nighttime are of approximately equal duration worldwide. However, they are not comparable due to the sun’s angular size and atmospheric refraction. The word is derived from the Latin equinoctial, from aequus (equal) and nox (genitive noctis) (night).

The equinoxes are the only times when the solar terminator (the “edge” between night and day) is perpendicular to the equator. As a result, the northern and southern hemispheres are equally illuminated.

In other words, the equinoxes are the only times when the subsolar point is on the equator, meaning that the Sun is overhead at a point on the equatorial line. The subsolar end crosses the equator moving northward at the March equinox and southward at the September equinox.

The equinoxes and solstices are directly related to the year’s seasons. In the northern hemisphere, the vernal equinox (March) conventionally marks the beginning of spring in most cultures. It is considered starting of the New Year in the Hindu calendar and the Persian calendar or Iranian calendars as Nowruz (which means new day). At the same time, the autumnal equinox (September) marks the beginning of autumn.
