Winter Solstice Peace Circle
December 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
“Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely.” — Edna St. Vincent Millay
Opening up to the Dark and Discovering the Light
Finding Courage to Free Your Truth
This Peace Circle is for those who want to gather and celebrate Winter Solstice. Amidst the anxiety, the clamor of voices that polarize or fray our nerves, let’s allow ourselves to just be ‘still’ and listen in the quiet, in the dark, in the surrender of what is seeking to be birthed in the Great Mystery.
Winter Solstice has long been recognized as the first day of winter – the shortest and darkest day of the year. It occurs when the Northern Hemisphere is furthest from the sun. According to its Latin roots, the word solstice means “sun standing still,” and winter solstice has been recognized across many cultures as a time to celebrate the gradual return of the light. Winter Solstice can be a ceremony to signal a clear end of one stage of life and a conscious beginning of another. It is mirrored in nature, as the seeds are buried in the darkness of the Earth, to emerge once again with the life-giving rays of the Sun.
This Peace Circle is an invitation to join and answer our heart’s call to act with courage, to step into the dark of the season and free ourselves from what hides our truth. Just as with the Solstice energy, this is a circle to renew our connections to one another and with the numinous through acts of goodwill, special rituals, and heightened awareness.
