Winter Solstice, the celebration of mid-winter, the shortest and darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, has been honored with ritual, fires, and ceremonies in nearly every culture throughout all of human history. The Christianized celebrations of Advent and the birth of Jesus, and the now-secular traditions of decorating trees, exchanging gifts, gathering with family are all rooted in this important connection with the elements and the natural annual cycle moving from darkness into light.
You are invited to a fire ceremony integrating the coming of Christ into the world, the natural cycle of winter and darkness, and the season of internal quiet, stillness and letting go to allow for deeper love.
"Winter Solstice" A Wild Church Service is being held at Stillpoint at Beckside on December 21, from 4pm to 5:30.
