The cooling nights dip their moist breath upon the fruiting body of our beloved Mother. The chirping crickets swell in volume while busy spiders come to stillness in their dew laden webs. An occasional appearing dazzling golden face rising over the horizon its arms breaking through the misty fields, reveals an accelerated move towards the south. The rapid succession of summer days shorten as a challenging growing season gradually comes to completion. The fringes of Mother’s green dress show hints of reds and yellow, while swollen fruits ripen and drop fermented back into her lap. Sprout has come to flower, fruit, and seed again and life can continue.

We gather in ceremony on the day of the vernal equinox, utilizing the energies of this portal of balance when the sun rises opposite from where it sets, making day and night equal in length. Balance is a short lived moment that all of the energies move towards and fall out again to continue to an ever greater expression of themselves. In each moment life strives for alignment and equilibrium that brings well being, health, peace, and presence. This balance point is where the rhythms of inhale and exhale, within and without, contraction and expansion, action and rest switch and where we align ourselves accordingly to follow those rhythms to support functional optimization of our body and environment……

What happens on a global level reflects what lives within us, for each one differently depending on where we are in our personal evolution. What we see reflected around us is a resistance to the inner journey to address what underlying issues keep smoldering and wait to flare up again. …….

Katja Esser guides you through this very participatory ritual. In the spirit of co-creating in our own evolution, the ritual grows to new heights when you bring your items and participation to it. The rituals go deeper each year as they are built on each previous one. The unfolding of the ritual creates the sacred space, in which we give more meaning to the details of the ritual. What you bring creates the magnificence of this ritual as each contribution makes up the whole. Please, make sure to do your best to bring your items and let the not fulfilling of these items deter you from coming. Some may bring some extra. Come early if you still need time to work on your items.
.
Gathering time for the ritual is 1:45 PM; please leave ample time to get yourself from the visitor center to the ritual site. We will be at the summer solstice sunrise stone at the earth Mother.      
.
Cost:  America’s Stonehenge is privately owned but is open to the public. The entry fee is $12.50 for adults (check for detailed rates).  In addition there is a suggested $8 or more donation per adult at the ritual site to support the continuation of the work.
