My intention with this offering is to bring a group together to contemplate and find comfort in the darkness, and healing and hope for renewal in the returning of the light. It is the season of contemplation…
This ceremony is inspired by traditional winter solstice ceremonies and my mindfulness practice. This is a ceremony about light but in the middle, we will meditate in the dark and then use our candles to welcome the returning of the light. We will also be evoking and thanking helping spirits! You are invited to leave behind your ordinary thoughts and concerns and fully join in, not just observe.
It is interesting to reflect for a moment on the Solstice. The solstice marks the moment in time when the sun’s path is at its shortest southernmost descent in the sky. The actual moment of the Winter solstice in 2023 will occur at 03:27 am GMT in the UK, but most people concentrate on the whole solstice day, which has been recognised by holidays and festivals in many cultures all over the world.
This shortest day lasts 7 hours 49 minutes and 42 seconds in London. This means that the length of day during the winter solstice is 8 hours, 49 minutes shorter than the summer solstice.
Come and join us for some time to connect and reflect on the ‘new’ year.
When you purchase a ticket please text me on 07981 623 566 and I will add you to the special ‘whats app’ group so you can receive the zoom code and information on how to prepare for the ceremony. You will need a number of candles!
