SPRING EQUINOX Celebration
Mantra Jam & Sound Diving
Yana Garden. Mike Auburn. John Galleher
4:00 pm - 5:15 pm
Spring Equinox is the beginning of the Astrological New Year, the time when the day and night are at equal length. In many cultural traditions Spring Equinox is celebrated as the start of the new year. People performed rituals during the Equinox to cleanse out old energy in themselves and in their homes.
The daylight starts to increase, so the Earth is about to tip over to more light, like an illuminating, sublime reminder that light is returning and always does, to Earth. Therefore, the Spring Equinox represents new light and life, new beginnings, seeds, and path. It is a best time for setting intentions and new beginnings.
Before the Sound Meditation we'll form an intention and let the sound transport it to the Source.
