Solstice Fire & Celebration

Solstice marks the beginning of summer and the longest days of the year. This was also considered "midsummer" in earlier times as farmers had done their planting by this date. Solstice was honored by earlier cultures such as the one which gave birth to Stonehenge--where the main axis aligns with rising sun on Solstice morning. This is a good time to give thanks for the light and warmth of summer. From this point forward, the days begin to grow shorter!

We will begin with our usual potluck meal at 6:30 pm, and head out to a consecrated fire afterwards. Please bring a dish for the potluck meal. If you would like to toast the Solstice, bring a drink to share after we close the fire later in the evening. We hope you will join us in marking this important transition in the seasons!

    A very sweet night! Wonderful to have so many new folks and everyone really seemed to appreciate the 'heart space' of the fire.

    A magical evening of light and wonder. How lovely to bask in the warmth of new friends and the ceremonies of our firekeeper and shaman. Thank you Jessica and Larry, for hosting this transformative solstice.

    A magical evening filled with light and friendship.
    It was a joy to meet you all and to bask in the warm hospitality that Jessica and Larry provided. How fascinating to hear, and receive, the gifts of the shaman!
