To celebrate this Equinox, Dr. Michelle Merrill will share her sense memories and knowledge of the world’s equatorial rainforests. All are invited to reconnect with the beauty and wonder of nature. How do we welcome more love and joy for all our relations? What shall we leave behind, as we move into the next turning of our dance around the Sun? What beautiful possibilities beckon us toward the future?

In this ecospiritual meditation inspired by our orbit around the Sun, we find connection and send wishes of loving-kindness and joy to all beings on this sacred Earth. The Sun’s crossing of the celestial equator reminds us to focus on Earth’s Three Green Hearts – the tropical rainforests where the sun will be directly overhead through the days surrounding the Equinox.

Uniting in meditation, we share a vision of the healing of Earth's Three Green Hearts. We build resilience in our community, and set our intensions for the transition to a future where all beings have the opportunity to thrive.
