Winter Solstice Gathering
The Winter Solstice marks the darkest time of the year, with the longest night and shortest day. On this day the sun is reborn and the days will soon begin to get longer. The Winter Solstice is also a time to take stock of what we have achieved, of stillness and rest.

About the Event
The Winter Solstice - also known as Yuletide - marks the darkest time of the year, with the longest night and shortest day. Until now, the days have been getting shorter but on this day the sun is reborn and the days will soon begin to get longer. Our ancestors celebrated the return of the sun with feasting and music.
We will begin our gathering by creating a beautiful ceremony to honour the season, then we will learn about ancient Yuletide traditions and folklore before exploring how the Winter Solstice can support personal and spiritual development.
The theme for the gathering is taking stock, self-care and stillness and we will take a shamanic journey to tap into the wisdom of our guides at this special time, followed by a beautiful Winter Solstice fire ceremony to honour the Solstice and set our intentions for the coming months. We will then close the ceremony before enjoying a traditional wassail and home-made Yuletide treats.
The gathering will start at 7.00 pm and finish around 9.00 pm.
