The Harvest Moon is heavily aligned with the upcoming fall equinox, which this year falls on September 22. This doesn't just signal the changing of the seasons — in Pagan traditions, it's the moment in the year when you start preparing for the cold months ahead.
We celebrated our first monthly Full Moon party, on this Harvest Moon, to benefit Habitat for Humanity in the studio and garden of our Greenpoint location. There was falafel, beer, wine, kombucha, live music, our teachers and students.... and there was cake! Lots of cake!
Our goodteacher Kent played for us some of his original songs on acoustic. He was followed by Mysore teacher Amy with her band Sunshine Nights. We ended the evening with a few songs by our goodfounder Flannery, which turned into a sing-along with everyone there!
