Join us in the garden to celebrate the New Moon and the harmony of our beautiful community!
To honor the more reflective and introverted energy the New Moon often brings us, we celebrate these occasions with more quiet ceremonial music featuring frame drums, tablas, tongue drums, bells, flutes, string instruments and our beautiful human voices. We invite participants to sing and share medicine songs from any tradition around the fire.
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.
