Autumn Equinox Ritual and Celebration

Join Sylvan Sanctuary Druids in celebration of Alban Elfed, the Autumn Equinox.  Alban Elfed marks the balance of day and night before the darkness overtakes the light. It is also the time of the second harvest, usually of the fruit which has stayed on the trees and plants that have ripened under the summer sun. It is this final harvest which can take the central theme of the Alban Elfed ceremony – thanking the Earth, in her full abundance as Mother and Giver, for the great harvest, as Autumn begins.

This ritual is our annual spiral ritual, the “spiraling” represents going inward to  kindling your own inner light and finding balance during the day when light and dark are balanced. After the Autumn Equinox we will notice the nights getting longer and the days becoming shorter. 

We encourage you to bring a donation for the Lawrenceville Food Co-op, a dish to share for the pot luck, and an offering to mother earth. 

Come be Curious, Courageous, and Compassionate with us as we strive to be a radically welcoming sanctuary in a green space. We foster spiritual growth as we joyfully nurture connections and community within our walls and beyond.
