Dec. 10 - Sun: 1-4pm, Bringing the Sun Back to Life: The Algonquin Experience of Winter Solstice.  In this experiential workshop with Evan Pritchard, we will learn about the most ancient shamanic roots of Winter Solstice, perhaps the world’s first holiday. We will touch on the astronomy involved, then discuss the time-honored metaphor that humans must participate in singing and “drumming up the sun” at Winter Solstice so that the world doesn’t die in darkness, and then we will SING! It is also the night of the year, and a time when the veil between us and the spirit world is at its thinnest. This is the moment to commune with the ancestors, spirit guides, Landkeepers, and more. $25. Note: We must close right at 4pm so don’t be late!  Neolyth 39 Glen Ridge Road, Montclair, NJ. 646 256-0515. If no answer, call 914 388-5571.

The Winter Solstice is the day with the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year.
In the Northern Hemisphere this is the December solstice.  In the Southern Hemisphere it is the June solstice.
The solstice is a time of turning inward, looking into the darkness, into the depths of the unknown. It can be a special time of exploring our intuition —trusting our inner voice, our inner knowing. It may be a time of feeling our way in the dark when we cannot see where we are going. Many use the solstice as a time of deep meditation—to reflect on what has been, what will be, what we are becoming.
