Winter Solstice Ceremony at the Stone Circle
December 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
We are back on the wonderful private farm in Arthur where we will take part in a Winter Solstice Ceremony at the beautiful stone circle. Stone circles are sacred spaces that connect Earth and Sky. They enhance the vibrations of the land forming a special spot of a higher frequency.
Winter Solstice was celebrated by many of our ancient cultures. Periods in history when it was thought necessary to be connected to the land in a very spiritual way for their very survival. Come and join us as we follow these ancient traditions in a ritual dating back thousands of years. Learn about the prayers and the medicines used. Winter Solstice is a time of gratitude for the winter stores and the animals that offer themselves for sustenance and shelter. Feel the energy and sacredness of this very special place inside the stone circle as we offer medicines to our alter, the sacred fire. We will drum and sing songs that are thousands of years old. You will hear flute music. An instrument that has been carbon dated back 50,000 years and is sacred and a special part of ceremony.
Anthony Barr from Sacred Sevens will be the facilitator, fire keeper, the guardian of the sacred space and providing drumming and singing and flute music for opening the vibrations of that space.
The ceremony will start at 7:30 p.m and it will last approximately 2 hours. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE DURING THE CEREMONY. After the ceremony, we will share snacks and drinks and socialize around the fire.
There is no charge for this event but please bring a snack/non-alcoholic drinks to share with the group after the ceremony.
Bring your drums, shakers or noise-makers. We will use them during the ceremony.
