TEACHER: Stephanie DeBou
THEME: The Return of Light
Steph: In the Northern Hemisphere, where I live, the longest night of the year is often celebrated in community, with family and friends, song and stillness, and firelight. This Celebration, known as the Winter Solstice, marks a turning point in our darkest hours, as each day thereafter begins to welcome more light. Its history runs deep, its origins dating back to the Stone Age. On this longest Monday night of the year, we will gather in Community and Celebration, to honour this deeply rooted occasion, as our ancestors have done so many thousands of years ago, and welcome the return of the light, with reverence and revelry. Light a candle or a fire and join us for this special evening.
*We encourage everyone near and far to participate in these online Monday Night Explorations. If you are able to donate a little something in return, we would greatly appreciate it.
