Welcome to the
Moon Zoom Team!
On April 7, 2020, in light of the world events of that time, I decided to open my loose interpretation of what's essentially a moon circle.
The primary tenet of this experience is inclusivity of all, any, even no practice. My leadership is rooted in my own spirituality, but by no means intended as a prescription for participants, and is accordingly brief. On occasions when I do lead something more structured, it is always supplementary.
A newer Moon Zoomer asked recently, "Why seven?" I was delighted to respond:
"Because the first one happened to be on April 7th and 7:00, so it seemed fitting, and it stuck."
From the original invitation:
"At 7pm we may begin 7 minutes of together-ness. We’ll all stay on mute so that your own time can be filled with any sort of sound you’d like. Some possibilites for how to use those 7 minutes:
Light a candle and be with the flame.
Sing a song (on mute).
Be in stillness.
Pull tarot cards.
Apply lotion to your body.
Massage your feet.
Stare out the window. Stare at a wall. Stare at your pet or partner.
Water your plants.
Color. Knit. Craft.
Many, many more.
We are gathering together many people of many practices.
What unifies us is simple: intentional collecting. And a full moon."
We meet around or on the new and full moons, and the core schedule runs as follows:
6:50 Gather on Zoom.
7:00 Seven minutes of collective intentionality.
7:07 A few minutes of wrap up or re-entry (as needed) from whatever you were doing.
Some opt to depart at this point.
7:10 A few minutes to share amongst those who stick around.
