Earth Joy

A Solstice Drumming Circle and Guided Walk

June 21, 2023 @ 5:30 pm 8:30 pm CDT

5:30pm – Guided ‘ Wisdom of Nature’ Walk and Reflection with Karen Bychowski

Using passages from Robin Wall Kimmerer’s “Braiding Sweetgrass,” we will reflect on and share the wisdom of nature as we also explore nature’s elements that surround us. During this Guided Reflection, we will walk in the new St. Clare Garden, pausing periodically for a short reading, reflection, and sharing.

Plan to bring comfortable walking shoes, and a folding/camping chair (if seating is needed).

6:45pm – Praise for the Four Elements and Welcome with Sr Glenna Czachor, OSF

With praise and joy for the Four Elements: Air, Water, Earth and Fire that are present in the world! We invite you join us as we walk through the St. Clare Garden before joining together in our Drumming Circle.

7:00-8:30pm – Drumming Circle & Fire Ceremony Celebrating Elements of Earth & Fire

We will gather on the lawn in the center of the St. Clare Garden. Bring a blanket or folding chair and drum / rattles, if you have your own. Tau Center has a limited number of extra drums and rattles available, so please join us and be a part of the circle even if you do not own a drum.

All are welcome!
