SPRING EQUINOX: HOLY DAY CEREMONY

Sunday, March 20, 12-2

At Wanderland Rainforest Iseum

“Sing frog, sing, bring the rains that cleanse the earth—and make us whole again.”

On Spring Equinox, night and day, are momentarily balanced. We celebrate the return of the sun, for after Spring Equinox, every day is brighter than the one before as Earth blossoms into spring.  At Wanderland, skunk cabbage pushes up through the bogs like golden ears—opening to the song of the early morning birds. Oxalis unfolds on the forest floor and the plants awaken.  It is a time of rapid growth and change.  What is unfurling in you? What color are your wings? What flower is rising in you? How are you dancing change and balance?

This ceremony will be led by Pamela Tillson, circle leader from Astoria. There is no charge but donations toward the maintenance of the forest sanctuary are welcome. The ceremony starts at noon.  Please do not come late.  Questions: contact Gwendolyn@nehalemtel.net or 503-368-6389.
