We joined our friends at the Kripalu Yoga Center for an enjoyable evening of camaraderie, feasting, music, and fun. A gentleman gave a didgeridoo demonstration and discussed some of the tradition surrounding the instrument. That was quite fascinating! I’d never heard one in person before and it was surprisingly meditative. My little one slept through the performance!
Before that, we took a walk through the trees to visit the stone circle where Northern Rivers Protogrove has many of its seasonal rituals. We celebrated Lughnasadh with Muin Mound in Syracuse earlier this month and we missed the lovely ritual space we’ve come to know. I left an offering to the local spirits, assuring them that they were loved and we would be back soon!
There were some changes to the circle – mainly in the form of some new stones! What a surprise! We were also amused by this sign next to one of the stones:
Apparently some nature spirits had moved in while we were away! One of our yoga center friends said he politely asked them to leave and they seem to have complied! At least, we didn’t see any while visiting… perhaps it has more to do with the cold temperatures at night?Di
