At the school, we seek to connect our community with the planetary cycles that affect all of us, even in urban environments, such as seasonal cycles, planting cycles, and lunar cycles. It is our belief that by living in greater harmony with the natural cycles that guide us, we develop a greater relationship to the planet and thus it becomes easier to walk our path lightly upon her. To help our community connect with the lunar cycle, we celebrate the New Moon and Full Moon with community circles. These family-friendly events feature drumming, dance, chanting, singing, local artists, healing, and much more. The energy of the circles shifts with the lunar cycles and is different each time. All traditions and faiths come together to honor the gifts of our shared community, planet, and universe in music, rhythm, and fellowship.
Playing music together puts us in touch with the creative force that directly connects with our humanity. Each of us carries our rhythm every day, even if we’ve never drummed before. We walk in rhythm…our heart beats in rhythm…we breathe in rhythm… When we take that rhythm and express it as a thread in the woven fabric of our circle, we realize how our uniqueness blends with that of others to create a rich tapestry of community.
In service and gratitude, we offer these gatherings to help our community reach its highest potential through rhythm, with an intention to serve, to inspire and to reach beyond what separates us.
Meditation, massage, reiki, flutes, guitars, frame drums, tablas, and other musical instruments of a softer volume are welcome. Come sit in the garden and enjoy a moment to heal and commune each New and Full Moon. Bring an instrument and a friend, or make new ones around the circle.
Moon Circles are intergenerational and family-friendly events, but please note: Children must be supervised at all times. Due to loud noises and large crowds, to ensure safety for all ages, we ask that you please leave animal companions at home.
Held at the Bodhi Garden located at 618 N Thornton Ave, Orlando, FL 32803 next to Dandelion Cafe
