Autumn Equinox Seasonal Circle - Harvest Home

As we come together in Circle for the Autumn Equinox, we celebrate the 2nd of 3 harvest festivals. Autumn Equinox is also known as Harvest Home, Mabon or the Festival of Thanksgiving.

Once again, the light and dark are balanced in equal length, as we pause before the time of descent into later fall and winter, and Winter Solstice. Autumn Equinox is a time of rest after labor, a time of rebalancing after intensive work. In earlier times this season was known as the Reaping Tide, balancing the Spring Equinox Sowing Tide.


This event will take place Sunday, September 23, 2018 from 4:00 -5:30 PM CDT.

Embracing the Divine Feminine Through Women's Rituals

More and more women hunger for deeper, more substantive spiritual fulfillment. Many find the male-defined and dominated structures and rules of traditional religions increasingly stifling and stultifying. Women seek a deeper connection with the Divine, one that embraces Heavenly Mother and expresses their own Divinity.

For eons this yearning has been satisfied through women’s rituals. Though banished and driven underground by patriarchal religions, they are not lost. Come and learn about this ancient path to connection and embrace with the Divine – the Feminine Path to God.


This event will take place on Sunday, September 16, 2018 from 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM CDT.
