Full Moon Ceremony at Zen Village

The full moon brings closure, death (to a situation or feeling), change, rebirth, and manifestation. It is a time to reflect on those things that no longer serve and give ourselves honor and nourishment in releasing them. The moon corresponds to the element water and invites us to remember our connection to the oceans held within earth, as well as the oceans of water contained within our own bodies. 

Many ancient and traditional belief systems around the world consider the Full Moon as the most auspicious time.  It is said that Deities, Divine Spirits and Ascended Masters who live in other dimensions visit the earth-plane on a full moon day to bless all creatures and beings with the light of Grace.  
For Buddhists, there is considerable religious significance of the full moon day. 

The Buddha was born on a full moon day. His renunciation was on a full moon day. His Enlightenment was on a full moon day. The delivery of his first sermon was on a full moon day, as well as many of his most important teachings and events over the course of his life. And, of course to follow suit, the Buddha's death was on a full moon day. 

The full moon is considered a 'breakthrough' day as most people were enlightened during this time. It is believed the full moon day can bring spiritual clarity and inspiration from the Divine.

Please Zen Village on Saturday, March 15 to celebrate the Full Moon from 9:00 pm to 12:00 am for prayers, a cleansing ceremony and music. Bring your candle prayer and food to share in a pot luck dinner celebration.

Zen Village is located at 3570 Main Highway. Reserve a space, call 305-567-0165.

Well, the real Full Moon actually is tomorrow, (but people with ca$$ got to bed early on Sundays, you see).. I'm afraid this is just another little scheme from this "Zen" Village ( Read $$$ Village).

Try calling them or stop by, there will be no enlightened Buddhist monks to greet you, but a machine or a salesperson salivating for the next deal.

BTW, whomever is profiting from Grovite naivete there really has some awful taste.. that's probably the tackiest dirt-green eyesore (pun intended, $$$, of course)in all of Main Hwy.

I have the same impression of that place. It is a shame being a beautiful place.

I don't know why people choose to be anonymous here. If you have something you want to say, don't keep your identity a secret. People pay more attention to someone with a name. Liz Gibson
