New Moon Gathering ~ Lionsgate 

Sacred Circle Drum & Dance!

Sunday, August 8    6:00 - 8:00pm

You are invited to come together Sunday, August 8th for the New Moon in August, also known as the Lionsgate.  Astrologically, the sun is conjunct Star Sirius and creates a Solar Stargate which amplifies the leadership qualities of Leo and the Freedom codes of liberation.  Weather permitting, we will celebrate this event around the sacred fire at the large campground at Natures Gate for a Sacred  Fire Circle Drum and Dance.  (indoors in the event of rain.)

We are still bathing in the energies of the Star Sirius as she rises with our Sun.  The amazing dolphin and whale energies continue to uplift us all into a greater awareness of our Unity Consciousness and ONEness. The astrological influence of

Leo and the Solar Stargate of  8 : 8 ( a double infinity) fully supports our ascension and liberation for the evening's Celebration!

Gather at the back deck  of the Retreat House for everyone to arrive and we'll  process together for the opening circle at the campground.  

Bring your intentions for this new moon cycle,  a musical instrument  (we have some available for you to use ), a poem, or something that inspires your new beginnings for our opening circle.

Please RSVP, so we can prepare.
