The Dance of Darkness and Light at the Winter Solstice
How fortunate we are that we can gather in community—both in- person and on Zoom--as we approach the longest night of the year. The Winter Solstice offers us the opportunity to experience the darkness at its fullest—a time of rest and dreams and quiet renewal for the Earth and for ourselves. And from the darkest night comes the rebirth of the light—the inner light within each of us and the promise of a new day dawning. As the Beatles sang: “Here comes the sun . . . And I say it’s all right.”
