The return of Autumn means that darkness is returning to become the prime mover in our
physical world and our collective consciousness here in the Northern Hemisphere. The autumnal
equinox is that symbolic day in our year when Darkness steps up to join Light as equal partners.
The arrival of Autumn can be difficult for us at times. We realize that the joyous long days of
summer are ending and we will need to let go of many things – plants we nurtured all year long,
outdoor projects that we’ve begun, the carefree days of being outdoors – and we realize that
another beautiful cycle of our lives is beginning to wind down. However, it is also a time of
enjoying the fruits of our labors and honoring all that has come before. Harvest time is upon us,
let us enjoy the feelings of gratitude and bliss!

Please join us for this magic carpet ride of sound where we ceremonially bid farewell to Summer
and honor the South direction of the medicine wheel. We will welcome in Autumn and
ceremonially bring in the West direction of the medicine wheel which brings with it the lessons
of the harvest, of letting go of that which no longer serves us and for the honoring of all that has
come before us. Let us be grateful for everything that has come our way and be open to a new
beginning of that inner journey that the return of Darkness represents – after all, it IS our deepest
reservoir of power.

Colorado musician and sound healer Jim Lanpheer will lead a 90-minute shamanic sound
journey with these themes in mind using three gongs, flutes, Tibetan bowls and other assorted
sonic surprises.

The requested donation is $25 for reservations made in advance and $30 at the
door. Reservations can be made by emailing Jim at jlanpheer (at) Please bring a pad/
pillow and wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring ritual objects for the gong altar.

Sunday, September 24, 7 – 9 pm
Where: The StarHouse, 3476 Sunshine Canyon Dr, Boulder, CO
