About the event
~ We welcome you to join us for a New Moon Solstice Gathering to come together in sacred space to feast, celebrate, and tend a ceremonial fire. ~
~ ~ ~ INVITATION ~ ~ ~
The word Solstice means "sun stands still" in Latin. In Gaelic, the word is Grianstad that translates as "sun-stop". It is a beautiful time to take a break from your busy life to Pause with the Sun and come together for a New Moon Solstice Gathering.
During this gathering, we will weave in the teachings of the New Moon and Summer Solstice as we tend a sacred fire from dusk until dawn. We will start and end our time together with a shared feast and ceremony.
It will be a magical time of celebration and connection. We sincerely look forward to having you join us!
