Join Mkomosé (Andrew Judge), Don Russell, Bill Woodworth, Christine Lefebvre, rare, and Common Waters for an evening harvest celebration and balancing of water and fire. Three sacred fire’s will be lit to honour the ancestors of the land, the blue corn, and the arrival of autumn.
Guests will first gather at Minjimendan garden where Mkomosé will speak to the sacredness of harvest time. We will then walk to Don Russell’s Stone, Clay, and Fire Circle to learn the story of the teachings learned through his fire circle project. A third fire will be lit in the conceptual Long House where Bill Woodworth will explain its significance and design.
Guests are encouraged to bring an offering for the Cambridge Self Help Food-bank as well as a lawn chair, and dishes for a fresh meal. Christine Lefebvre who opened the Common Waters project close this event by honour rising moon. Feel welcome to stay and pending clear skies we can watch the full moon rise together!
