Full Moon Meditation Monday, September 24th at 7:30pm
Gather with us as we spend time in quiet reflection in the light of the Harvest Moon. The Harvest Moon reminds us of what we've been working toward all year — and what remains to be done before 2018 begins.
If you observed August's full moon, you spent last month in preparation mode, executing those needling (but necessary) tasks at work, handling household chores, and tackling difficult conversations with your friends or partner. Now you get to see that hard work pay off. New opportunities may arise, now that your schedule and closet are clearer than they were last month.
No full moon comes without a warning of changes yet to arrive. Now that you've seen your summertime efforts come to fruition, it's time to look ahead to the winter and start reflecting on what you want out of the remainder of 2018. Start thinking about how you can start to make your dreams a reality. With the expansive full moon fueling your ambition, even the smallest steps will leave a major impact.
All are welcome. Regular class rates apply.
