UNFORTUNATELY, WE HAVE CANCELED THIS EVENT DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. Wishing you and your dear ones good health, and a blessed Spring Equinox!
The Spring Equinox will be celebrated on the beautiful, candlelit labyrinth at First United Methodist Church of Boulder on Wednesday, March 18, from 6:30-8:30 pm.
The Spring Equinox marks the beginning of spring, and is the midpoint between the winter and summer solstices. Join us for an evening of celebration and introspection.
Rev. Barbara Middleton and Dr. Celene Lillie will open the event. Harpist Margo Krimmel will offer soul-soothing music as you walk the labyrinth. (Originally, Joy and Michael of Heartsong Way were scheduled to perform, but they are unable to participate this time.)
The labyrinth and sound are both ancient tools for journeying within to connect, release and renew.
Meet Our Guest Musician
Denver native Margot Krimmel has been playing improvisations on harp for meditative ceremonies for the past fifteen years. Her music has heightened and focused the energy for labyrinth walks, yoga classes (including The Yoga Journal Conference), and many local events and services. She has recorded several CDs, including a new collection of solo harp compositions, Ever the New Time Comes (release date Spring 2020). Lean more about Margot’s music on her website.

This event is FREE and open to the public (no young children please). Love donations are welcome for Margot.
