Nowruz or “New Day” has been celebrated on the spring equinox for over 3,000 years. Popular within many cultures, Nowruz features days of elaborate festivals and traditions. Some traditional observations include cleaning and decorating your home, wearing new clothes, creating colorful powdered patterns on thresholds, lighting fireworks and bonfires, visiting family, enjoying picnics, reading Sufi poetry, and participating in the Haft-sin, Haft-mewa, or Khoncha meal. Join us to invite spring and good fortune. We will decorate the Haft-sin or Seven S table, share a festive Persian dinner, read Sufi poetry, and share wishes for the new year. Wear something new if you’d like! Facilitator Renée Silvus brings a blend of perspectives as an educator, therapist, and coach. She offers local classes, retreats, coaching, celebrations, and facilitation with her brand Luminaire. Read more at reneesilvus.com. Co-facilitator, artist Thea Belecz, will be preparing the delicious Nowruz meal.
