The wisdom of the Mystics will companion us in a lightly guided program of inspiration , nature, silence, story, sunset labyrinth, Yule Log ritual, Winter Solstice feast and Sacred Dance.  You are invited to take time out of this busy season and enter the longest night of the year in community.  Together we will take our place in the continuum of time, welcoming our Earth Star’s journey of returning light.  Each dance will be taught, no experience required. 
Note: It is custom to wear white for the Winter Solstice Sacred Circle Dance
