The Spring Equinox
Rev. Simon will share some of the Celtic wisdom associated with this sacred time of the betwixt and between.
Rev. Simon is an independent, ordained, interfaith minister, sacred musician, youth worker and wooden boat builder. In all these vocations, he uses music and carpentry as a means to help individuals and groups connect sacred presence with everyday life. He also leads worship services, preaches, facilitates workshops, crafts personalized rituals, and performs weddings, baptisms, and funerals as well as other rites of passage. A dynamic and talented public speaker and musician, Simon has shared his unique combination of creative worship, sacred music, and storytelling with universities, community groups, and spiritual gatherings across the US, Australia, and Scotland. His unusual life and music are the focus of the award-winning documentary film Funny Kinda Guy. Simon’s musical work includes playing for rites of passage, healing, worship services, and community-building events; lately some of his favorite gigs have been played at youth centers, sickbeds, industrial workshops, homeless drop-in centers, and ancient chapels.
