In our earth spirit gatherings, we call the four directions (or elements)–a metaphor for bringing into our awareness various qualities that provide balance in our lives and relationships.
We will celebrate summer solstice on the garden path labyrinth with a ritual starting at 2:30pm on Sunday June 17th by including various correspondences representing the four elements.
There will be baskets of the following herbs – available for enjoying – and taking a sprig of each home with you.
East – Air – Lavender
South – Fire – Rosemary / Bay Leaf
West – Water – Thyme
North – Earth – Sage
We’ll have a few noisemakers representing the four elements/ directions and a special treat for summer play as well! The colours we use as correspondences are below:
East – Tin flute – Yellow
South – Bell – Red
West – Rainstick – Blue
North – Drum – Green
