September Equinox Approaches

birds in flight

The exact time the sun will cross the equator on its southbound journey this Equinox is Monday, September 23rd, at 07:50 UTC. Novasutras will hold an Equinox meditation focusing on climate and forest well-being, with an in-person meditation in Santa Cruz about 12 hours before the moment of the Equinox. You can watch live via Zoom, or view the recording on YouTube later.

Explore the history, practice and science of "forest bathing", and how it can help you deepen your connection with all other beings in loving-kindness, with the complex wonder and sacred beauty of the universe, with what we call agaya and ubuntu in Novasutras. Shinrin-yoku practice may help you become a more effective agent for increasing ubuntu and agaya in the world.
