9/22 Eleusinian Harvest: Equinox of Demeter & Persephone

Yeshe Matthews will be guest priestess at the Temple of Intention’s Fall Equinox Ceremony on Sept 22 from 6-8pm. The Dog Star has risen and the time of the harvest has come. The Summer sun brought us a bounty of lessons, opportunities, transformations, and changes. As we stand on the threshold of Autumn, in the perfect balance of Light and Dark, let us gather to make offerings to the Goddesses of Growth, Yearning, and the Uncompromising Wisdom of Experience: Demeter and Persephone. In this rite we will honour the new knowledge we have gleaned from the season of growth, we will confront the coming winter with petitions for nurturing gestation of our dreams and goals, and we will feast in celebration of all that we have earned with our blood, sweat, and tears.

*Please bring a vegetable, either from your garden or an organic market, to offer to the feast. Your contribution will be blessed and lovingly prepared in a nourishing vegan soup for all to share at the end of the ceremony.* Love offering is $10-20.
