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. Hear Sean play his 3-string guitar on YouTube. 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.
