Join Upper Mississippi River Reclaiming (UMRR) for an all-ages celebration of Fall Equinox as we stand balanced and steady to celebrate the gifts of the harvest in community.
Adapted from the UMRR We Are statement: “Tipping into the fertile darkness; we resist the chains of oppression as radiant beings.“
When: Sunday, September 24 gather at 3:30 p.m.; ritual starts at 4 p.m.
Where: Powderhorn Park, 14th Ave S. and 33rd St. E. Minneapolis, MN (Rain or Shine).
Things to bring
- Something comfortable to sit on like a camp chair or blanket.
- Food to share: We will have a picnic after the ritual. If you are able to bring a dish to share, please do, but it isn’t necessary.
- Please bring your own reusable eating utensils and vessel.
We will be outdoors, so dress for the conditions!
All are welcome including children, newcomers, and folks from other traditions.
Please refrain from the use of perfumes, lotions, and other scented product to ensure increased accessibility.
Money donations are also welcome to cover ritual expenses, but please note that no one will be turned away for lack of funds or potluck items.
What to expect
No two Reclaiming rituals are alike, but you can expect to find these at all rituals
Reclaiming Rituals are participatory – You can choose how much you want to join in and we encourage you to sing, dance and move along with us.
Reclaiming Rituals tend to last about 90 – 120 minutes , though some might go a little longer, occasionally they are a little shorter but 90 minutes is a good rule of thumb
Reclaiming Rituals are open to folks of all ages, all genders, all physical abilities, pagans, non pagans, solitaries, covens, and the curious.
Reclaiming respects healthy relationships with traditional medicines, but out of respect for those in recovery, all Reclaiming rituals are clean and sober – so please, no recreational drugs or alcohol at or prior to the event.
