Full – New Moon Circles
Ceremonies and Programs
Hopi & Navajo programs
Auspicious and inspiring times for ceremony and circles:
- Full Moons and New Moons each month have energetic effects.
- Solstices and equinoxes are the major seasonal turning points. The mid-season times (half-way between, i.e. May Day) are also subtle turning points in the cycle of the year.
- Celestial events–comets, meteors, eclipses
- Holidays, sunset, dawn
Programs can be created at other dates too.
For those who prefer to expand horizons from your home base:
These programs and retreats can be modified as personalized on-line programs for 1 or more people.
