New Moon Circle

December's New Moon is Thursday December 13th.  As the New Moon appears in the constellation Sagittarius, tonight we will gather under the Bodhi tree to drum and dance.

Today is also special because the annual Geminids meteor shower will reach its peak late on Thursday night and into early Friday morning.  In the Moon's absence from the dark sky this will only enhance your chance of seeing a shooting star, even in the light polluted city sky.  But wait, there's more... From "NASA is saying there’s a second possible meteor shower that could significantly boost the number of meteors you’ll see.  The source of the possible new shower is Comet 46P/Wirtanen.  Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office says debris left in Wirtanen’s orbit might produce as many as 30 meteors per hour, added to the 100 meteors per hour from the Geminids." That would be an awesome meteor show, so keep your eyes to the sky tonight as we drum, dance and commune with each other.




Tonight we also gather and pay our respects to the great sitar maestro, Ravi Shankar, who died in San Diego Tuesday aged 92.  Dubbed the Godfather of World Music by his most famous student, George Harrison, Shankar learned to play several Indian classical instruments in his teens and began touring abroad in the 1950s, introducing Indian ragas to audiences in Europe and the U.S.

Tonight we honor Ravi Shankar's gifts to the world as we jam to our own world music.

Moon Circles 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 community circles. The Moon Circle gathering is family friendly, but kids must stay supervised. These family-friendly events are open to the public and feature drumming, dance, chanting, singing, local artists, healing, and much more.  Learn more here...


Please visit the donation drum with a dollar every circle to keep the rhythm flowing and the community growing.


Don't have a drum? No worries, thanks to Remo Drums we have community instruments to share with you.


Its a lot of fun, don't miss out!
