In mythology, rainbows are associated with hope, good fortune, peace, and unity. They reflect the beautiful colors of autumn.
As the daylight hours dwindle, we reach the point where there are exactly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness at the equator. During this time of balance, called Autumn Equinox, we celebrate the blessings of the harvest.
We think about all the good things that have come our way this year, and in years past and offer gratitude.
By acknowledging our blessings, it sends a message to the universe which in return sends more blessings to us.
Please join us for our Autumn Equinox Rainbow Labyrinth and Story Blessing!
This will be a fun, frolicking, rainbow-licious experience where we are filled with gratitude and receiving of many rainbow blessings.
The celebration will begin at 5:00 p.m. and continue until 7:00 p.m.
You will have the opportunity to hear a Story Blessing offered by Alyson, make rainbow wands with Elisabeth, walk a rainbow labyrinth crafted by our labyrinth master maker, Jacob, participate in duck divination with Quynn, and have a super joyous time as we all celebrate the transition into autumn.
