Summer Solstice: Celebrating Mid-summer Light – Solstice time

Jun 21, 2024 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Without the sun (at its precise distance from us) there would be no life on earth. Without the tilt of our axis, there would be no seasons. These are the cosmic truths within which we have our life, our breath, our being. All that occurs within the course of a year is but an outworking of this relationship with the light of life.

Hope Horton -Reflections on the Summer Solstice.

The summer solstice invites us to celebrate the nourishing light of the Sun and The Light within each of us.

In ancient Ireland, at this time when the sun was at its most powerful it was considered a sacred time. Our ancestors built monuments (Lugh Gur and Newgrange for example) aligning with the annual phases of the sun. At this mid-summer point, we celebrate and appreciate the nourishment we and planet Earth receive from the sun.
