"Blue Moon at Summer's End:

Holding Light as We Move into Darkness and Uncertainty"

Lori Solensten, Homilist,

Renee Ranke, Emcee


For thousands of years, the midpoint between the Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice has been honored and recognized as both the time "between years" and "between worlds", and in the turning of the wheel it is also the darkest time.  The Celtic earth spirituality calls this Samhain, which translates as "Summer's End".  Over time, other names and holidays have emerged and been "assigned" to this midpoint including All Souls Day, All Saints Day, All Hallows Eve and Halloween.   This year, 2020, we find both the second full moon of the month (called a blue moon) and the end of Mercury Retrograde falling at this sacred time.  Added to that, we find ourselves in the midst of a still global pandemic and a highly charged presidential election in the United States.  
    In the service at ISD on Sunday, November 1, Lori Solensten will be speaking about this unique time we are passing through, its ancient roots and how  we can honor and learn from our ancestors as to keep our balance and gratitude through the next few weeks. Lori may be best known locally for her shop Moon Dreams  which was open in Cooperstown from 1986-2001.  Since that time, she has served as a counselor, small business mentor, soul coach  and facilitator of women's circles.  She also recently completed studies in the Red Lotus Mystery School and is a consultant in Interior Alignment: Instinctive Feng Shui.  Her passion is assisting women in listening to their soul, finding strength in circles and creating sacred space in their homes.


Sorry we can't gather in person yet but look forward to seeing you on ZOOM!

Guided Meditation & Psychic Readings for some audience members are part of our service. Please stay for Fellowship in small groups after the service.

We stand for each individual’s right to seek their own personal Truth, as they respect the same right for others. We honor the sacred texts of all traditions of the Light.
