Date: Tuesday 21st of December 7:30pm - 9:45pm
Join Danny and celebrate the Winter Solstice, to celebrate the return of light.
The winter solstice is a time of letting go & also a time of receiving new energies. It’s a time of ending the darkness & embracing the light. The days get longer and it’s a time of death & rebirth.
Observe nature during this time and see how still the earth is. The Autumn leaves have fallen from the tree’s. It’s time of surrender, stillness & hibernation. It is also a predominantly feminine energy with masculine energy deeply hidden. This is the opposite of the Summer Solstice when masculine energy is predominant & feminine energy is deeply hidden.
We honour the season of winter as the long bright summer days are behind us. The days from now will begin to get longer as nature will bring us back through the seasons to the longest day of the year for the Summer solstice in June as we journey along the cycle of life. We connect with our greatest teachers & healers, mother earth & father sky, our ancestors & give gratitude for life at this time of year & all we can learn from it.
Celtic prayer for the Winter solstice:
‘May I find the wisdom & courage to be present in the stillness & darkness of the void’
