  • Description:

    When was the last time you created the space for star-gazing -- to sit or lie down on the Earth and let your mind wander into the spaciousness of the night sky? For thousands of years, human beings have engaged in contemplative relationship with the light of other suns that travels up to 16,308 light years and is seen by the naked eye. Engaging this relationship has evoked countless insights, reflections and inspirations.

    As the stars are setting in the Eastern US and rising on the West Coast, astronomer and author Stephan Martin (located in North Carolina), along with meditation teacher and psychotherapist Marianne Rowe (located in California), invite you to turn your attention to the mystery of the cosmos as a way of opening the door to expanded perspective and universe of possibility.

    Beginning with a contemplation of the birth and death processes of the stars in Orion we’ll reflect on the eternal nature of birth, death, and the cosmic life that spans both. We’ll then transition through Leo, the Lion of Spring to the great void of Boötes while we open ourselves up to what’s newly emerging in our own lives as we wonder and wander among the beauty of the night sky together.

    Through an audio-only Zoom call, we simultaneously and collectively contemplate and celebrate the cosmic dynamic of emergence while viewing the late Winter stars and the first stars of early Spring.
