Spring Equinox Celebration on the Labyrinth Wednesday, 3/21
March 21, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
A Spring Equinox service will be celebrated on the beautiful indoor labyrinth at First United Methodist Church on Wednesday, 3/21 at 6:30 pm.
The spring equinox is the time in the earth’s annual cycle around the sun in which day and night are equal in length, before the days get longer after the darkness of winter, and life springs forth again. It is a time of re-emergence and renewal.
Revs. Matthias Krier and Barbara Middleton will open the event, and sound artists Joy Sylvia and Michael Heartsong will provide mystical sounds using a variety of instruments while you walk the labyrinth. Click HERE to visit Joy and Michael’s webpage and learn more about their music.
The labyrinth and sound are both ancient tools for journeying within to connect, release and renew. Walk the labyrinth with the mystical sounds of didgeridoos, handpan, flute, drum, vocal toning and more. The soundscapes will set the tone for a full hour, allowing time for 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.
