Honoring Winter Solstice
We come together to honor the approach of Winter Solstice and the Longest Night. Join us in potluck and in ceremony.
The Shortest Day
by Susan Cooper
And so the Shortest Day came and the year died
And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world
Came people singing, dancing,
To drive the dark away.
They lighted candles in the winter trees;
They hung their homes with evergreen;
They burned beseeching fires all night long
To keep the year alive.
And when the new year's sunshine blazed awake
They shouted, revelling.
Through all the frosty ages you can hear them
Echoing behind us - listen!
All the long echoes, sing the same delight,
This Shortest Day,
As promise wakens in the sleeping land:
They carol, feast, give thanks,
And dearly love their friends,
And hope for peace.
And now so do we, here, now,
This year and every year.
Friday, November 19, 2010 will be the last night that the Wisdom Circle will meet in it's present form. We trust in the knowing that our sacred circle will morph into it's next level, spiraling on into finer and finer vibrations. Join us in body or in spirit. You are always welcome here, in our circle of women's hearts.
We have set up this website for all of us. Events, solstice and equinox gatherings/ceremonies with men and children, and classes will be posted here for your reference, and enjoyment. Please notify us of classes and/or links to your offerings, so that we can include them on our website for everyones attention. We also encourage you to share on our blog.
