Easter, a time traditionally associated with spring and rebirth, finds its roots entwined with the rhythms of nature and the cycles of the moon.

In the northern hemisphere as winter transitions to spring and the first blooms emerge, Easter arrives in tandem with nature’s renewal. The symbolism of resurrection and new life aligns with the awakening of the earth from winter.

In the southern hemisphere as summer transitions to autumn we are reminded of the eternal cycles of the seasons which resonate with Easter’s message of new beginnings.

Easter is intricately linked to the moon’s cycle. The date of Easter can change each year as it is determined by the equinox and the paschal full moon. Easter falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon that occurs on or after the equinox.

The moon, with its eternal cycles, is a celestial timekeeper, that guides the Christian calendar and influences the timing of this special festival. The moon’s phases, mirrors the cyclical nature of life, death, and rebirth that Easter encapsulates.

Understanding the interconnectedness of Easter with the natural world and the moon’s cycle enriches the celebration. It enables us to embrace the celebration with a deeper sense of awe for nature.

This year, under the glow of the Easter full moon we will watch the billabong transform and come alive with enchanting reflections and nocturnal sounds.

Join us in celebrating Easter with a wellness retreat and let the transformation of nature inspire a vibrant transformation within you.

  3. Cosy Atmosphere – With cooler temperatures and shorter days, autumn invites us to embrace comfort and self-care. Snuggle in front of our fireplace and relax with a cuppa and book.
