Summer Solstice Celebration

Date/Time

June 21, 2017
06:00 PM until 09:45 PM

Description

Explore the Mysteries of the Solstice on June 21st with John Gauley, Br. Daniel Walters and Annabelle Wallace.

Summer Solstice is a time to celebrate our lives as we surrender to the “turning of the wheel of the year,” the longest day and the shortest night. It is a spiritual time to find the harvest and seeds for the future in the coming darkness.

Summer is a celebration of connection with mother earth and our brilliant star, the sun. It bestows upon us the many blessings of abundance and nourishment from the tiniest seed. We become witnesses to the birth of colorful and fragrant flowers, and busy birds and bees share pollen from flower to flower.

How can we celebrate the harvest of our own life, as we surrender to the seeds of Christ’s calling for our new life? Come and honor the changes in our lives embracing all aspects of light and darkness, with the ever present grace in all of life.

There will be a brief talk concerning the history of the solstice, poetry, and music at the Morcone Center. We will then gather at a sacred space on the grounds of Glastonbury Abbey to celebrate of the solstice. Please be prepared to be outside and wear comfort shoes and clothing.
