Join the Eno River CUUPS for a Lammas Cross-Quarter Celebration!

When: Sunday, August 2, 6:30-8:00 pm

Location: Outdoors in S. Durham

"Ceremony brings us closer to those things that we need to appreciate, that give us life."
-- Robin Jones of Seneca First Nation: Water Protector & Standing Rock Activist

Please join us to celebrate Lammas, the sacred Cross-Quarter halfway between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox. This Cross-Quarter is traditionally honored as the season of harvest's First Fruits, a time of gratitude for increasing plenty that blessed everyone. The word Lammas comes from "Loaf Mass" acknowledging the first breads baked from the fields' newly ripening grain, and shared in community with sacred intent. Through ceremony, feasting, Rhythm Circle music-making, and more, we'll renew our sacred connections with Nature, with each other, and with our gratitude for Life's abundance.

We'll be hosted outdoors in a lovely private backyard on the banks of Parkwood Lake in south Durham. We'll practice social distancing, wear face coverings, and bring our own chairs and personal picnic-feasts. The space is accessible for those with physical disabilities. This is a participatory gathering open to all like-hearted adults.

PLEASE RSVP to Lila Rosa by Thursday, July 30. 

We want to plan for everyone to have enough space to social distance while following NC safety protocols for outdoor gatherings. Once we receive your RSVP, we'll email you the street address for our gathering.
