Litha/Midsummer ritual!

  • Jun 20, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • Palaia Vineyards

We are reaching Midsummer, the peak celebration of the Summertime when the days are longer than the nights.

Physically we are experiencing more *light* and since the beginning of time, our ancestors have marked this period with ritual and celebration. As you know, there are thousands of ancient sites created around solstices and equinoxes that were built to honor our connection to the Sun as the source of our light. It is a time of celebrating the fullness of life and of taking the time to raise our energy to regenerate abundance and manifest our dreams. How can we modern folk do this? Well through doing something symbolic to honor this time. In doing so we are not merely reviving something of the past but rather tapping into something that is eternal. We need not only honor our dependence on the physical Sun but also honor the spiritual fire within each and every one of us. Now that’s reason to celebrate and be grateful!

Join us at Palaia Vineyard on Friday, June 20, 2014 at 6:30pm to raise energy with the Summer Fae at the sycamore tree amongst the vines. Dave and Angel will be officiating this summer celebration. Please bring food and drink to share, fit for a summer feast. (All left over food and containers must go home with you). Bring any bells or chimes you have to help evoke the fairy folk. And of course, dress in your fairy best! $5.00 ritual fee.

The guest house has been rented, so we cannot use it for the kitchen or the bathroom.  Bring folding chairs (if possible) to sit on.

    A shout out, we talked to Bernadette about this idea...

    Eric and I would like after the ritual if it becomes a festive event. This is when the sun reaches its zenith in the sky. It is the longest day of the year, and the point at which the sun seems to just hang there without moving – in fact, the word “solstice” is from the Latin word solstitium, which literally translates to “sun stands still.”
    Fire and Water:
    In addition to the polarity between land and sky, Litha is a time to find a balance between fire and water
    We will have the festivities by the house outside. If people could bring chairs, pop up tents, and tables. Lots of food. Deborah maybe your daughter can dance with her hula hoop, the one that lights up. We were talking about the history and tradition of these holidays that are full of festivities. Dancing music food and really celebrate fire and water. This is the longest day of the year and lets really honor it! Let us know if you can help.
