Stag and crescent moon

As individuals and as a collective community, we go through necessary periods of darkness. There are treasures in the darkness, for which we prepared during the autumn equinox and Samhain/Dia de Los Muertos.

As we move toward the winter solstice and the longest night of the year, we have a an inner, seasonal resonance that reminds us that in the midst of darkness the precious, life-giving qualities of the sun will return once again to warm and illuminate us.

Our winter solstice ceremony takes place a few days before the actual solstice, but within the orb of its magical energies.

In this gathering we will create a ceremonial container, drum to call in power, and experience the Grounding & Merging Process to prepare us for contact with the Otherworld. We will journey to release the expended storylines of the past year and to invite in the energies of the new cycle.

I look forward to being in circle with you and celebrating the return of the light!
