Winter Solstice Celebration

The Winter Solstice accents the time of a seasonal and astronomical shift…the increase of sunlight back into our lives. The sun is the source of all light and warmth and reliably shines back into our lives bringing hope, new life and beginnings. As our ancestors have done from the beginning of time, we too can acknowledge and celebrate the winter solstice. Ritual acts give life meaning, they help us remember and guide us back inwards to the web of life that connects us all.
