About the Event
In the northern hemisphere, the winter solstice occurs when the Earth’s axis is tilted farthest from the sun. What that means for us in the United States is that we will experience the shortest day and longest night of the year.
We invite you to slow down and enjoy a peaceful and reflective evening of community during this busy season. We’ll celebrate the return of light with the 2nd annual Winter Solstice Candlelit Labyrinth Walk at Carol Jenkins Davis Park, on Wednesday, December 21 at 5:30 pm.
Carole Yeend, our resident labyrinth facilitator, will explain the significance of labyrinths and explore ways to mark the solstice, followed by a walk along the labyrinth’s path. Luminaries will encircle the perimeter and candles will be provided. Please dress warmly. All are welcome!
The winter solstice is the perfect time to release old ways and set new intentions. Paper and pens will be provided for those who wish to write down what they want to let go of. We'll celebrate the welcomed return of light but also the beauty found in darkness when journeying within ourselves to find reflection, rest and rejuvenation. We hope you’ll join us.
