Full Moon Labyrinth Walk & Divination Practice with Potluck
Come enjoy the beauty and peace of the Labyrinth by the light of the full moon! Weather permitting, this will be an outdoor, drumming walk. The first half hour will be a quiet walk, the remainder drumming, so feel free to bring hand drums and other percussion instruments. If you haven’t walked a Labyrinth before, there is no ceremony or ritual. A Labyrinth Walk is safe, open Sacred Space for personal exploration. Please plan to arrive by 9 pm at the latest to allow enough time for your walk. Divination practice is welcome – please feel free to bring your preferred divinatory tool (runes, tarot, ogham, etc) to practice/trade readings. Or, just stop by for a reading! Recommended donation of $5.
