Yoga Class on the Labyrinth at 7:30 p.m.
Solstice Ritual and Fire at 8:30 near the back parking lot.
Celebrate the longest day of the year at Heritage by honoring the knowledge that darkness will follow the light.
We will begin with a yoga class filled with sun salutations on the labyrinth at 7:30 p.m. Solstice fire will be lit at 8:30. Allow the mother earth to welcome you in her embrace as we watch the wheel of the year turn again and again and again…
Come to just the yoga class or just the fire or come to BOTH! Bring a mat if you have one. Please bring a snack to share.
Starhawk reminds us that “The cycles of light and dark, growth and decay, are part of life. They are woven into our cells, our bones, and we forget them at our peril. For if we try to cling to youth without accepting age, we become like the evil Queen in Snow White, blighting all around us in our quest for private immortality. If we expect endless growth and expansion, without contraction and constraints, we become a cancer on the face of the earth. But if we understand and embrace the balance, if we remember that dark must follow light, and that it is the season of lengthening darkness that brings us the fruits of summer and the rewards of growth, we can flourish. Age can bring us wisdom. Gardeners know that from decay comes fertile compost. Even death can bring us a deeper appreciation of the fleeting beauty of life.”
