Mabon Personal Day Retreat

Sept 22, 2019

September brings us Mabon and the Fall Equinox! This is the time of year when night and day are in perfect balance. The last of the crops are being gathered from the fields and stored for winter. It is also the time to prepare hearth and home for the coming months ahead.

Join us at a day retreat designed to help you prepare in mind, body, heart, and spirit to harvest insights from the year before and prepare for to meet the challenges ahead in the coming year. Restore your personal balance with just the right amount of dreaming, thinking, giving, creating and playing among friendly Pagan and Earth- centered folk!
