Mother Earth Connection - Summer Solstice Celebration!
Time & Location
About the Event
People from many cultures have held solstice celebrations for thousands of years. Traditionally people celebrated renewal, life, fertility, and the potential for a good harvest on the summer solstice.
Today people around the world still celebrate the arrival of summer with outdoor feasts, singing, dancing, and bonfires.
Denise Duncan and Adrianna Sawchyn are busy planning a very special Solstice celebration for you doing things like bathing in the light of the Sun - Sun salutations are a great way to honor the sun on the solstice - so is making a Flower Crown or maybe a Suncatcher for your window!
Other ideas we're tossing around is some Gardening - If people are interested, Summer solstice is a great time to start a garden and we'd love to bring some plants to containers around Aurora to spruce up the exterior of the Centre.
We'd like to end with a Solstice Feast and if we can, a bonfire - where we each bring fresh fruit and vegetables to share to celebrate the plants coming alive in Summer around the bonfire which is a great way to celebrate the solstice. Dance, sing, beat drums, play music, and celebrate the official beginning of summer.
What a great way to introduce the Summer Season! So please make sure to join us!
We will meet at Aurora Sacred Healing Centre at 1pm on Sat. June 22nd. Please confirm your attendance either by messaging our Aurora Facebook page, calling/texting 204-620-2149 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
