Winter Solstice Celebration and Pot Luck

December 21, Saturday, 

6 :00pm  -  10:00pm 

 $20 donation

You are invited to gather together at Natures Gate Retreat Center our annual Winter Solstice Celebration.

This is one of the. most special times of the year as we join together in Ceremony and Celebration to honor the return of the light. The Winter Solstice is a time when we are aligned with the Center of our Galaxy and enter into a big inbreathe, when time stands still.  During our ceremony,  you will be bathed in waves of sacred sound healing instruments and be guided on a journey to connect with the planetary and universal alignments. We shall journey together into the still point of the void and the beautiful silence of our hearts where we can find deep peace, new beginnings / the light within, and the purity and innocence of a newly born child. As we emerge out of the chrysalis we birth into the New and bring our magnificent selves into the new decade of 2020.

Please bring something to share during our share circle... a poem, a song, a short reading, a musical instrument to play. 

Bring a pot luck dish to share, and please RSVP so we can plan the evenings event.
