Starhawk Workshop & Winter Solstice Spiral Dance 2012
"Light is Returning: Solstice Stories for the New Era"
Stories tell us who we are and who we can be. They can limit or liberate us - and winter is the time for telling them. In this half-day workshop we'll form affinity groups around our passions and interests. We'll share & transform our personal stories to deepen our bonds of connection. Using the tools of ritual, meditation, trance and song, together we'll co-create the tales of liberation that can heal ourselves and the world.
"Light is Returning: A Solstice Spiral Dance~Ritual to Celebrate the Dawning of the New Era"
After the workshop and a delicious organic meal, we will anticipate the longest night of the year with a Winter’s Dream ritual & Spiral Dance led by Starhawk and Reclaiming LA.
Join us in sacred space as we dance the spiral. celebrate community, and rebirth our selves and our world. [In support of those in recovery, this ritual is drug and alcohol free.]
