Celebrate an Amazing Double Sky Event at Coldwater Spring: A Full Moon—Winter Solstice Eclipse!
Join us this night in a “Devotion to Sweet Darkness,” Monday, December 20 at midnight into Tuesday, December 21, 2010
On the darkest night of the year, celebrate the full moon lunar eclipse—an amazing double sky event, outdoors, at the last sacred spring in Hennepin County. The eclipse, visible here, begins at 12:32 AM Tuesday morning and is full at 2:13 AM. A special permit from National Park Service has been secured for this rite. (Normally Coldwater Park is closed at sundown.)
Friends of Coldwater is sponsoring the ritual with members of Minnesota Reclaiming including astrologer Teri Starnes and Paganistan storyteller Steven Wise Posch. We will have sacred Coldwater water, a fire, and a labyrinth to walk created by Earth artist extraordinaire Paul Eaves.
Bring: firewood, a chair, an offering for the land (sage, flowers, tobacco, a homemade amulet, etc).
Dress: for the weather & then add another layer
Directions: Coldwater Spring is south of Minnehaha Park, in Minneapolis. From Hwy 55/Hiawatha, turn East (toward the Mississippi) at 54th Street, take an immediate right, & drive South on the frontage road for ½-mile past the parking meters, through the cul-de-sac & the gates, & past the abandoned buildings. Follow the curvy road left & then right down to the pond, next to the great willow tree.
Please leave your beloved pets at home. This is a drug and alcohol-free event.
