Autumnal Equinox Mala Making Workshop with Maria Renna Fri, Sep 22, 2017 at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“Autumn ... the year’s last, loveliest smile.” – William C. Bryant

Fall is a season for balancing light and dark, letting go, and accepting the impermanence of things.
 
The Autumnal Equinox is a time of harvest, transition, release and gratitude – giving thanks for all the abundance the previous months have brought while preparing emotionally and physically for that which is to come. It is a time to find balance and clarity and invites introspection, as the cooler weather beckons us inside and reminds us of the quiet, restorative months to follow.
 
Let’s celebrate this season of harvest and growth while creating a sacred MALA necklace which will serve as a reminder of this abundant season. We will be using gemstones associated with Autumn – think colors of the earth and leaves! Come create with the grounding energies of RED JASPER, GARNET, and CARNELIAN; attract abundance and bounty with MOSS AGATE, and AVENTURINE; celebrate growth and change with DENDRITIC AGATE (tree agate), invite clarity with FLUORITE ... and more. Before stringing our malas, we will begin with a sweet meditation focused on the beauty of the Fall months ahead!

The Eros of Yoga with Joshua Greene Sun, Oct 15, 2017 at 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
