Winter Solstice Celebration
On Thursday December 21, Sevenoaks Retreat Center will hold its second Winter Solstice event, concluding a year of seasonal events held here on each of the Solstices and Equinoxes during 2017. The theme for this winter solstice will be “The Birth of the Light” and will include a multi-cultural, inclusive, holistic approach to celebrating the moment when the sun’s light begins its return, even as the cold and dark of winter descend. This, of course, is the time when Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, Jews celebrate the Festival of Lights, and other traditions honor this special moment in their own ways.
Please spread the word about this event. A year ago, when so many of us were still reeling from the shock and pain of the presidential election, we had 75 people at our event. After this stressful year of dealing with bigotry and lies, we have seen our collective light begin to gather and to shine. Winter Solstice will be a way both to celebrate our growth as an extended network of spiritual communities and continue to mobilize for the work ahead.
The day is FREE, donations suggested to help support Sevenoaks Retreat Center a non-profit spiritual retreat. www.sevenoaksretreat.org
The event is organized by Susan Thesenga, Co-founder of Sevenoaks and the Pathwork.
