Winter Solstice Celebration!

In the darkest days of the year, the earth turns through the heavens to a pivotal moment: Winter Solstice. The Solstice brings a powerful vortex of dark, cold, and reflection, with just a hint of light that glows on the horizon of our dreams. 

Come celebrate the magical moment when winter turns toward light. Come for community, poetry, participatory ceremony, and simple circle dances, supported by the mesmerizing music of Sean Frenette. Click here for a youtube of Sean playing his 3-string guitar. Integrating classical technique, immersion in raga and other musical traditions, and fluency in contemporary western forms, Sean's musical offerings range from lyrical, moving, and brilliant to playful and danceable.

In our candlelighting ceremony, all that we long to leave behind will turn into rich compost to nurture the seeds of beauty and hope we plant for the seasons ahead.
