http://photos4.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/6/1/a/0/event_259404992.jpegThe Autumn Equinox is one of the four Solar celebrations of the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, it marks the height of Autumn, and provides a time of perfect balance between light and darkness, both necessary components for life.

In celebration of this festival, which has been commemorated throughout human history, Rosicrucians take time to reflect on the Path of Light of which they are a part, and to remember all those who have spread the Light of our Beloved Order.

Our discussion will include not only a consideration of the Rosicrucian Autumn Equinox observances, but also their parallels in world spiritualties and cultures across the ages.

Participants are invited to share their own experiences of the Fall of the year, and its resonances in their lives.

The Presenter, Steven A. Armstrong, M.A. Hum., M.A., M.Div. is a professional historian, philosopher, and teacher based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

He currently serves at the Grand Lodge (San Jose) in Membership Services. He is an active member of both the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC and the Traditional Martinist Order and has served as an officer in both Orders.

His current areas of interest include how the Primordial Tradition permeates all world traditions, and the way in which the Rosicrucian and Martinist Paths provide a unique and unifying viewpoint on those traditions.

Author of more than 30 published papers, articles and podcasts, and a lecturer for the RCUI, he is no stranger to NYC as he received two of his Master's Degrees at Fordham's Rose Hill Campus, and did his undergraduate work just north of New York at Yale.
