Events | Fall Equinox 2009 at Sun Farm

E Q U I N O X  2009

e q u i n o x       [from Latin aequinoctium : aequi,equal+ nox, night]

Equinox, in space, is either of two points on the celestial sphere at which the ecliptic intersects the celestial equator.
Equinox, in time, is either of the two times during a year when the sun crosses the celestial equator and when the length of day and night are approximately equal: the vernal equinox or the autumnal equinox.
In Buddhism the equinox is referred to as O-Higan. It is related to crossing over from the material plane to the spiritual plane. Thus it is a period, in both spring and fall, when the provisional world and the absolute are in close alignment. It is a time for reflection and interpenetration of our lives to connect with all sentient beings and our environment.

At Sun Farm we celebrate the spring and fall equinox, as a moment to focus on our connection with the environment, celebrate with the surrounding nature the balance of day and night as light and darkeness.
