Spirit Journeys: The Longest Night
Wednesday, December 20, 2017, 7:00pm
Late dawn. Early sunset. Short day. Long night. For us in the Northern Hemisphere, the December solstice marks the longest night and shortest day of the year. This special day is coming up on December 21, and many spiritual disciplines hold ceremonies in recognition of this.
Join us for an educational presentation held the day before the longest night of year on December 20, as we explore the origins of Longest Night ceremonies across cultural boundaries.
Most people associate the holiday season with happiness and blessings, but for some, it can be a time of great sadness. Spirits may sink as days grow shorter and we are surrounded by darkness. If you find yourself saddened during this time of year, are reminded of a recent or past painful loss, or are experiencing feelings of isolation, then The Longest Night program may be for you.
A brief community ceremony will be followed by a gathering with light refreshments. Join us for quiet, self-reflection during this often-boisterous season. On the Longest Night of the year, come seek your inner light. . .
