Join Jennifer Reeve and Maria Rosa Galter of Walking Inspiritus, on February 15 to celebrate the Snow Moon, named such because of the heavy snows that can fall in February. The name dates back to the Native Americans during Colonial times when the moons were a way of tracking the seasons. Other Native American tribes called this Moon the “Shoulder to Shoulder Around the Fire Moon” (Wishram Native Americans). Using this theme as our anchor for our walk, we will explore the warmth of community and relationships and reflect on the stillness of the season. The quiet of winter is a time for invisible growth through rest or challenge, and a time to hold community close.
As the closest astronomical body to earth, the moon has a profound effect on us. It represents the feminine, emotional, creative and nurturing aspects of our lives. During full moon time, everything is amplified, providing an excellent opportunity to release what you no longer need in your life or an aspect of yourself that you have outgrown.
Meet at Alderfer Ranch parking lot (part of Three Sisters Open Space Park) at 4:45 pm for check in and to sign waivers if necessary. We will start promptly at 5:00 pm. We should be back in the parking lot no later than 6:30 PM, one hour after sunset when the park closes.
