Please join us for our Winter Solstice circle on Friday, December 21. Gathering begins at 7:30 PM and the ritual begins promptly at 8:00 PM
December 21 is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day and the longest night, when as our ancestors did long ago we celebrate the Rebirth of the Sun.
This year, December 21 also marks the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar after over 5125 years. Some say this means the end of the world. Some say it means the end of an aeon, and perhaps, the beginning of a new aeon. We don’t think the world is going to end, but we do think our world needs new ways of living and being, new ways that are compassionate and sustainable.
In this circle we will take the energy surrounding the Mayan calendar, combine it with the energy of the Winter Solstice and use it to create a new aeon of our own.
Please bring an item of food or drink to share after the ceremony. Donations of a dollar or three to help defray expenses will be appreciated but are not required.
Children 10 and older who can participate maturely and respectfully are welcome to join in. We will have childcare available for younger children.
