Throwback Thursday: Embracing the Moon as Our Muse

Back in September, Christine Lu Singh hosted a field trip on Embracing the Moon as Our Muse. Here’s what you missed:

Just before the new moon at the end of September, the CreativeMornings crew gathered on a rooftop in the Dogpatch to catch the magic hour and set intentions for the upcoming lunar cycle. Christine Lu Singh, from High Impact Healing Events, welcomed us with a warm embrace and mooncakes (courtesy of our partners at BiteUnite).

Christine’s passion is rooted in wellness, and she aspires to bring calm to the chaos in our everyday lives. She’s a partner of High Impact Healing Events, a collective with the mission to create events, like this evening’s Modern Moon Ritual, designed to awaken and nourish the full potential of human awareness in each individual.

We started the event with introductions and what sparked interest in a moon workshop. Even with such an intimate gathering, there was a wide range of spiritual and astrological awareness and experience, as well as CreativeMornings experience (we even had some first-timers).

As the sun started to set, Christine reminded us to be aware of our mood swings, energy levels, and overall well-being and how it aligns with the moon cycles. We might be surprised to notice a pattern. With the new moon just around the corner, it’s a good time to start fresh and set intentions for the person you want to be. Christine kicked us off with her intentions for the next month: “I am a boss”, and I think we all agree.

With new intentions for a new lunar cycle set, it’s also important to let go of anything that isn’t serving you. Christine says the full moon is the perfect time to let go of that negative energy. She closed the event with a guided meditation, leaving everyone ready to take on the next lunar cycle with a refresh and a reset.

Huge thanks to Chrstine Lu Singh and the Martin Apartments for hosting and leading this workshop. Thanks also to BiteUnite for feeding us.
