Since ancient times, humans have revered and celebrated the changing of the seasons as four powerful focal points in the year. This is a time to gather and to explore what it means for ourselves individually, in community, and collectively as we live on this planet.
The Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, and Autumnal Equinox are not only a shift of our physical reality, but also greatly affect our spiritual and emotional bodies. Seasonal shifts are also a reflections of stages of an inner spiritual journey – a spiritual cycle that the individual takes within themselves.
The Autumnal Equinox marks the point in the year where the chill in the air and the shorter days can make us feel more internal as the year draws to a close. After the exuberance, warmth and fire of summer, autumn is an important time to contemplate. What can we harvest from our experiences we collected? What parts of us do we hide in the darkness and what wisdom do those parts of us hold?
The festivities of the night will include live music, connection games, special elixirs - we are excited to celebrate together this beautiful time of year!

Yemanjo is a project of DJ, singer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Harris in collaboration with some of the best producers in global electronic music today, including Thornato, Lagartijeando, Srikala, Biomigrant, Scott Nice and more. Yemanjo makes "Medicine Music for the 21st century"...writing original songs influenced by shamanic South American sounds, various Afro-Latin rhythms and electronic beats; he spins the sonic universe of Latin America into something completely his own. A live Yemanjo show is an infectious and uplifting experience combining live instrumentation and DJ beat science with live vocals in Spanish, English and Portuguese. Yemanjo's ecstatic dance sets have been enjoyed on both US coasts, in Europe, Bali, and Central America since 2015. When not on tour, Yemanjo can be found an integral part of the emerging conscious dance scene in his adopted home of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.
