Event description

Description

Take a moment to breathe during the busy holiday season, and join us as we honor this shortest day of the year and experience both the darkness and the Light it offers.

In nature, darkness is essential. Trees and plants need time to recharge their cycles. Animals and reptiles and amphibians go underground for much-needed rest and replenishment. As humans have for hundreds of years, together we will honor the Winter Solstice—that time in the Northern Hemisphere when the hours of light are at their minimum. We will explore together how the darkness informs our physical and spiritual being, and how it helps us to see and appreciate the Light that is available in its midst.

This casual walk will be led by Beth Norcross, Executive Director of the Center for Spirituality in Nature.
