    MOON RITUAL – Join Lindsay Hopkins from Acts of Ritual for a participatory ritual. Together, using the power of the Moon and energy healing, we’ll explore the space between letting go and allowing. We’ll tap into the healing powers of release that the Full Moon has to offer. This Full Moon in Scorpio, brings to light the personal and cultural seductions pulling for our attention. We’re living in powerful times, often caught between grasping to control our way to feeling safe and an intuitive knowing that there’s a better way to live in trust. We hold the power to invert the image we live within, to move into trusting that which is invisible and immaterial. The Moon illuminates anything with a hold on our psyche, needlessly generated unconscious fears. In doing so She offers us the dissolution of illusion and an opportunity for agency. The Moon reminds us that we create our own destiny. That we can live closer to our natural rhythm when we release ourselves from that which binds us. In reminding us of this She asks us to transform. And in choosing transformation She helps to set us free.
