Celebrating Winter Solstice

Bowing in infinite gratitude, releasing that which no longer serves and setting intentions to illuminate the path.

The Winter Solstice is the longest night and the shortest day. The dark triumphs but only briefly. For the Solstice is also a turning point. From here (until the Summer Solstice), the nights grow shorter and the days grow longer, the dark wanes and the Sun waxes in power. From the dark womb of the night, the light is born. A mighty battle between the dark and the light in which the light always prevails.

Solstice ritual assists to release the old and illuminate the path ahead. It uses the elements of fire and water, along with winter energy to allow us to surrender our shadows and the transformations that the new year will bring. It is aimed at creating a timeless stillness, which is much like being in the womb…a celebration of rebirth. It is a creative vortex, which penetrates our inner physical bodies and weaves the outer manifestations of our daily lives.

As we ignite the flame we ask to be lead from untruth to truth, darkness to light, and death to immortality.
