If you have not used Zoom before, be sure to go to the Zoom.us site, download the app and check your settings before the event.

The moment of Cross-Quarter is at 19:19 UTC (12:19pm PDT), when the sun will be directly overhead in the Pacific Ocean, west off the coast of Mexico between Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta. At that moment, we will focus together on reverence, joy and loving-kindness – agaya and ubuntu – for the world.

In the northern hemisphere this is the Summer-Fall Cross Quarter (associated with Lughnasad or Lammas, often observed August 1st or 2nd, with celebrations emphasizing the first harvest of grains).
