"Celebrating the Solstice"—Women's Wisdom Village—12/20/2020
About the Event
Celebrating the Solstice: The turning of the Wheel of life & the return of the light.
The winter solstice, the darkest night of the year, is December 21st. Since humankind could track the sun and the stars, this night’s rituals and celebrations have offered hope for the survival of hardship, darkness, and fear. Still, 5000-10,000 years later, we have much to contemplate and honor at the solstice this year.
Join me in the Women’s Wisdom Village on Sunday afternoon, December 20th, to celebrate the turning of the cosmic year.
We’ll explore Stonehenge, New Grange, and other megalithic sites, linking our hope for the new year to those of the generations of women who celebrated before us. Together we’ll honor our needs, hopes, and desires for the new year.
The December solstice occurs between December 20 and December 23, when the sun seems to pause before moving on toward spring. What inner transformation is possible during the three symbolic days of greatest darkness?
Together, we will create personal ritual blueprints for the three nights of deepest darkness. What in our lives needs to be transformed, metaphorically sacrificed, and buried? What needs to be reborn, what seeds need to be planted in our psyches to germinate in the coming spring?
Come and join with me to celebrate the potential in new beginnings!
Note: After you register, you will receive an email with the private zoom link for the gathering and instritions to prepare for the creation of your personal ritual. The only items you may want to purchase are three candles that will burn for as long as you desire on the night of the gathering and the two nights that follow.
What can we learn from the time we are living through? Where is our power, and how should we wield it? Join me to explore the ancient hopeful truths and power that lives within the myths of the universal experience of being a woman.
Dr. A. is a cultural mythologist and women's coach. Join her in weekly inspirational conversations, held online, about the big picture of being a woman in these times.
In each conversation, as women have done for millennia, we will gather at the well (ours will be virtual) to support each other and to find wisdom, insight, and clarity in uncertain times.
Enter the circle and:
- Experience new ways of understanding what we are going through today, from the wisdom in ancient myths and stories.
- Explore the legacy of wisdom from the profound universal experiences of being women.
- Broaden and deepen our thinking about our outer and inner worlds.
- Create a deeper connection to ourselves and to each other.
These weeks of social distancing and unrest can create more than stress and worry. We can emerge from this uncertain time with a story to tell about ourselves and our world. We can create a new vision for our lives, our families, our communities, and our world.
