WINTER SOLSTICE SPIRAL
SUNDAY DECEMBER 20TH – TUESDAY 22ND 2015
On the shortest days of the year we will celebrate the return of the Light with our beautiful Solstice Spiral, laid out from winter greens in the Universal Hall. For 2 days and 2 nights the Universal Hall will hold this vast quiet sanctuary, providing a time to pause, reßect, breathe, and consciously harvest the gifts of 2015, before stepping into the Light of the new cycle.
We will begin by setting up the space energetically with a SPIRAL DANCE to live music at 8AM ON SUNDAY 20TH. We will then continue in silence to build a big double spiral from winter greens. You are welcome to join us for either or both, – please be on time.
THE SPIRAL OPENS AT 3PM ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON WITH A TIME FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES FROM 3-5PM. AFTER 5PM THE SPIRAL WILL BE CONTINUALLY OPEN THROUGH BOTH NIGHTS UNTIL TUESDAY MORNING 8AM. THE ACTUAL SOLSTICE TIME IS 04.49am ON TUESDAY. THE COMMUNITY MEDITATION WILL START MONDAY AT 8 PM,
We will release this year’s Angels of KINDNESS and DELIGHT and welcome a new Angel for the community for 2016. After the meditation (from about 8.45pm), The space will be open through the night until the following morning. The Spiral will be closed on Tuesday 22nd at 8am, and taken down on Tuesday morning 9am. Please help with cleanup if you can.As every year,
WE WILL NEED GUARDIANS to look after the space in 1 hour slots during the whole opening time: THE GUARDIAN SIGN-UP SHEET WILL BE POSTED BY THE PARK KITCHEN HATCH FROM SUNDAY DECEMBER 13TH. PLEASE PUT YOUR NAME DOWN if you can.
