Magical & Spiritual Herbalism for the Equinox
September 6, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$40
The 2018 Autumnal Equinox is just two weeks away! Join us for a magical journey into the world of herbs and find out how they can help you make the most of this special time.
Fall Equinox has been celebrated as the peak of the harvest and ‘bring-in’ season. It is at this time that the most number of crops are ready for harvest, and the weather outside is starting to make some very obvious changes. Because of the association with harvest, this is the perfect time to reflect over the past season of growth, tap in to deeper threads of gratitude, and ‘clear the land’ for the upcoming wintertime rest.
At both the Vernal and Autumnal Equinox the day and night are of equal length. This time of balance gives us a moment of stillness where we can reflect, adjust, and prepare for the deep transformative power of winter darkness. Many people take this time to offer gratitude to the trees, their healing plant allies, and to the deities of Nature in thanks for their many gifts and what what brought in with the harvest. For those of us who don’t survive on farming and the yearly agricultural cycle this can be a very beneficial time to step into that space and acknowledge many gifts received.
Autumnal Equinox is also a time for accountability. It’s a vantage point from which we can survey what has come to fruition so that we can reverse-engineer what we did to make it so. For those who feel disconnected from their power of creation or their link to the law of return, this is a time to connect the points and learn more about how you manifest and work your own personal magic. This is also a time for serious cleansing and clearing to move out old patterns, finish up or release unfinished projects, and prepare for the resting season.
For this event we will be focusing on herbal magic and spiritual workings surrounding balance. Light and dark, death and birth, give and take. This will also be an event of preparation for the darker months ahead. Our emotional focuses will be on letting go, expressing gratitude, and finding the light within the dark. We will work inner seeds that will lay dormant for the Winter and will be empowered for us to plant and make real in the next Springtime season.
