Autumn Equinox

Tuesday, September 22nd:  Autumn Equinox

“No spring nor summer Beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnall face.”  Elegy IX: The Autumnal by John Donne

Septmber 22nd is the autumnal (or fall) equinox, the day when the sun crosses the celestial equator and the earth has the same amount of daylight as darkness.Equinox time is a time of equilibrium and balance, of harmony and stillness. For us in the Northern Hemisphere the autumn equinox marks the entry into the dark time of the year and the beginning of the winter preparations.

We hope you can virtually join with us as we give thanks for the fruits of the earth that sustain us when we cannot meet in person. We will also reflect on what we have harvested from the events of this year and how we can regain equilibrium and balance as we cope with the Covid-19 pandemic.
