Spring is making its grand entrance and all is balancing. And what better way to honor and celebrate the balance of the Vernal (Spring) Equinox than a perfectly-balanced, two-day celebration, which we are calling Vernal Vibrations?
Monday, March 19, 7:30 p.m.
“Home” Vernal Vibrations:
Annual Spring Equinox Special Service and Ritual
As a prelude to the Equinox on March 20, we’ll host our annual Spring Equinox Special Service Ritual in the transformative magic our beautiful Sanctuary. This powerful ritual honors the moment of the Equinox where day and night are the same duration, heralding an awareness of the balance or need for balance in our own lives. As the earth becomes green with the sprouts of awakening seeds, we celebrate the seasonal “blossoming” of the intentions we made in the autumn and winter months.

“Away” Vernal Vibrations:
Spring Equinox Drum Circle
Washington National Cathedral
We honor the power and magic of the Equinox when we take a “field trip” to Washington National Cathedral, the location for the explosively spectacular “Spring Equinox Drum Circle.” Nearly 1000 participants from all walks of life and all over the region come together in the hypnotic and mesmerizing ritual of communal drumming. You’ll be engulfed in the pounding beats reverberating off the walls and into the rafters. You’ll align with the collective, joy-filled consciousness of hundreds of diverse and rapturous drummers. And you’ll bask in the sheer awe of having this all happening in the Gothic magnificence of the Cathedral. All for a rare experience you won’t want to miss, and will never forget. A limited number of drums are available to encourage all to participate. Those who own their own drums are encouraged to bring them and add their energies to this celebration.
Those interested in this event can find more information and secure free tickets using the link above. Once you order your tickets, please let then let Rev. Rob know you’ll be joining the ISD Community for the event on Tuesday evening, March 20. The Cathedral asks a $5 Love Offering for this event.
You’ll want to keep your balance! Plan to participate in both of these wonderful events.
