Moon Circles are sponsored & hosted by:
At FSHL, we seek to connect our community with the planetary cycles that affect us all, even in urban environments, such as seasonal cycles, planting cycles, and lunar cycles. To help our community connect with the lunar cycle, we celebrate the New Moon and Full Moon with these circles. The Moon Circle gathering is family friendly, but children must be supervised at all times. These family-friendly events are open to the public and feature drumming, dance, chanting, singing, local artists, healing, and much more. Learn more here…
Our circle is hosted in the Bodhi Tree Teaching Garden
* Please Do Not Step In The Garden Beds.
Stand and dance on the Lawn Only and use designated Pathways for Entry & Exit! *
Please visit the donation drum with a dollar or two every circle to keep the rhythm flowing and the community growing to allow these circles to continue every New and Full Moon.
We have been hosting New & Full Moon Circles for EIGHT YEARS - Thanks to YOUR donations!
