At Wanderland Rainforest Iseum
Saturday, December 21, 12-2
“From the Darkness comes the Light”
Ice, snow, wind, and rain sweep the earth as darkness comes earlier each day. Winter Solstice is the longest night of the year. This is the Turning. From this night on, the sun returns—longer each day—and begins the gradual awakening of new life.
Winter Solstice celebrates the presence of Spirit and the power of Hope. At this time, we tend the Hearth and listen to the Ancient Wisdom stories of Light born from the deepest Dark . We will follow an ancient story line of images that surround the Solstice: the Tree of Life; the Lights that shine from the tree; the gift of Love at its center; and the child of Hope who is born from Darkness.
The ceremony, led by Gwendolyn Endicott, includes story, ritual, myth, and time for reflection. We begin at noon; come a little early, rather than late. There is no charge, but suggested donations of $10-$20 toward the maintenance of the forest sanctuary are greatly appreciated.
