Meditation for May – Opening to Vitality and Hope

May 4, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm UTC-4


Early May is the midpoint between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, a time of fertility and growth, a time to celebrate love, light and hope. We all have something we want to harvest by the end of the year—plans and dreams we want to bring to fruition. This is a wonderful time to draw on the liveliness of nature to spark fresh energy in ourselves and reconnect with what matters most. What lights you up? What are you dreaming about that’s ready to bloom? Maybe there’s some new aspect of yourself, or a new project or plan, that’s ready to come forth, some change you’re ready to make. In this gathering, we’ll reflect on what feels most vital, paying special attention to what warms our hearts, what inspires hope and possibility. There will be a short talk and reflection, guided meditations and some gentle movement. If you wish, bring an object that symbolizes warmth or hope—a candle (bonfires are a traditional ritual in many cultures, so something symbolizing fire can be especially potent now), flowers, a piece of quartz or amazonite, or a picture of anything that uplifts you.
