Fall Equinox Celebration on the Labyrinth
September 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
A Fall Equinox service will be celebrated on the beautiful indoor labyrinth at First United Methodist Church on Wednesday, September 25, from 6:30-8:30 pm.
The Fall Equinox is one of two times in the earth’s annual journey around the sun when day and night are equal in length (the other is the Spring Equinox). It is the midpoint between the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, and the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year.
Rev. Barbara Middleton and Dr. Celene Lillie will open this special event. While you walk the labyrinth, sound artists Joy Sylvia and Michael Cutter of Heartsong Way will provide mystical sounds including didgeridoos, handpan, drums, and vocal toning.
The labyrinth and sound are both ancient tools for journeying within to connect, release and renew. The soundscapes will encourage you to relax and bathe in the healing space before and after your walk. The instruments played will provide a rich tonal spectrum to invoke ‘deep listening’ – a sense of becoming fully present and listening with the whole body.
The Fall Equinox service is free of charge, but love donations are welcome for our musicians. No young children please.
