All are welcome to a community celebration of the Autumn Equinox.

This transition from Summer to Fall, when day and night are of equal length, marks a special time in our yearly evolution. We are asked to slow down, to absorb and to rejoice in the bounty of this fall harvest season.

Please join us as we honor this transition with a special day designed to connect us to our own intuitions, to our community, and to the nature that surrounds and feeds us. Let us harvest the joy of healthy living!
