It's the shortest day, and longest night of the year. Join us for a pre-Xmas and Winter Solstice gathering, in the dark, round a roaring fire in Stanmer Park.
The winter solstice, the rebirth of the Sun, is an important turning point, as it marks the shortest day, when the hours of daylight are at their least. It also marks the start of the increase in the hours of daylight, which continues until the Summer Solstice.
Celebrating the Winter Solstice can be a profound way to tune into the magic and beauty of the season, making it a time of reflection and renewal, of feeding the spirit and nurturing the soul, not just emptying the bank account and fraying the nerves!
Tonight we'll be tuning in, sharing stories, connections and an end of year ritual that'll set us up for the new year.
Feel free to bring a hot drink, water and snacks, but please note this meetup is alcohol free.
Suitable for adults, dress warmly, bring a torch.
Bring an acoustic instrument if you'd like to share a tune or a song. And if you'd like to offer an exercise, activity or meditation, please get in touch.
The cost is £5 which covers the cost of the venue, hot drinks and wood for the fire.
(Please RSVP so we know how many to cater for.)
[fyi the exact time of the solstice is Tuesday, 22 December 2015 at 04:49am GMT]
