Winter Solstice is here in the Northern Hemisphere/Summer Solstice for the Southern Hemisphere. This is the longest night for the Northern Hemisphere/longest day for the Southern Hemisphere. In the north, the Sun now turns on December 21 and slowly begins to regain power and increase life-giving light.
In the Northern Hemisphere, ceremony and celebration are practiced as the light of the Sun returns once again. We show gratitude and appreciation in ritual ceremony with candles, despacho (prayer bundle), drumming, singing, gifting and story telling.
While in the Southern Hemisphere, gratitude for the abundance, fertility, and pleasures at the fullness of Summer is marked as the Sun slowly begins to wane in strength.
Take a moment and show your gratitude to our beautiful Sun and may your path be forever illuminated by the Sun and your heart.
