2017 New Earth Matters celebrates 25 years of service to the Nashville community, and now we get to share this great eclipse event together. Our focus has been on Earthly “corrections and solutions” and we teach that the atmosphere, cosmos and universe have been an impenetrable, mystic force that holds our Earth and Moon in place.
This August 21st we will gather and experience the momentous “total solar eclipse” together in community. Folks and families from all over will celebrate and honor this cosmic process with respect and admiration. As the new light rises around 1:30 pm, we will step forward together and symbolically leave the past drama and darkness behind us. Join us and be part of the unified movement into the light.
