Bull Full Moon Festival

Time: 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Place: Hastings Parish House, Walpole Unitarian Church, Corner of Main and Union St., Walpole, NH
Price: n/a
Ages: n/a

The River Valley Full Moon Meditation Group would like to invite the community to join us in celebrating the Bull Full Moon, or the Festival of Goodwill. Each month at the time of the full moon people who are concerned about the state of the world gather to offer service by using a scientific form of creative meditation. This form of meditation helps to step down the spiritual and healing energies, available at this specific time, for planetary evolution.

(Please note: This group recognizes the new, corrected, star-based astrological calendar.)
Each full moon occurs during a certain zodiacal sign that serves as a symbol for the energies available to humanity at that time. Each sign has a keynote, the keynote for the Bull being, “I see, and when the eye is opened, all is illuminated.” This keynote reminds us that it is important to see the intelligent design and necessity for the struggle and pain in the world and also what changes it will lead to and the eventual outcome of enlightenment. We also see the most appropriate way that we can serve evolution in that moment. These are seen as opportunities to give the gift we incarnated to give.

The Bull Full Moon Festival will be held on Monday, June 3rd, from 7-9 pm at the Hastings House, Walpole Unitarian Church, Corner of Main and Union Streets, Walpole, NH. 03608. Meditations are open to the public and operate on the principle of shared responsibility. Please join us on the River Valley Full Moon Meditation Group Facebook page for news, interesting articles and information on scientific meditation, and why we meditate at the full moon. You may also email the group on FB or call (802) 536-5024 for more information.
