RITUAL FOR THE FALL EQUINOX, September 20, 2008, 9am till evening


The Fall Equinox is a time of balance, when we stand between light and dark, summer and winter. As we acknowledge the end of the season of abundance and harvest, and look towards the time of the year when the days draw in and the year moves to its close, we feel our closeness to the land, and we look for ways to show our gratitude to the Earth.

Tejas Web is hosting a day of sacred service to the earth, on beautiful wooded land near Austin that has cradled many of our camps and events. We will work together during the day on tasks and chores that serve the land, and as we end our day of work we will share food and collaboratively plan a Fall Equinox ritual of acknowledgement and gratitude. Please join us!


When: Saturday September 20, between 9am and early evening (if you are not able to arrive as early as 9am, come as soon as you can!)

Where: Contact Suzanne (512-282-5541, for directions

What to bring:
- dress for the weather (including good sun protection: it will be hot) in clothes that are OK to get dirty
- work gloves and sturdy shoes
- clippers or other tools to cut brush
- we could use a wheelbarrow or two
- plenty of water to drink (more than you expect to need!)
- your own sack lunch
- for dinner before the ritual, a potluck item to share that is pre-prepared and does not need heating or cooking (there will be a refrigerator to store things that need to be kept cool)
- your inspirations for ritual planning

We especially need one or more pickup trucks that can be used to haul things away,and if possible we need these early that morning, as close to 9 as possible, so there is time to load them. If you can offer a pickup truck, please contact Suzanne (512-282-5541,

As with all Tejas Web events, this day of sacred service is drug- and alcohol-free.
