Winter Solstice Labyrinth Walk: Celebrating Peace and Hope

Rasheeda Hastings and Athena Dugan

December 21, 2022

The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere.  For some this can feel like a dark night of the soul, a spiritual low point.  For others, it is restful stillness in the dark.  For all, it is a Creation-led transition point, as the sun “stands still” (solstice) and the world shifts back again into growing light.

The labyrinth, with its meandering path into its center and back out again, can open us to this time of hope and renewal.   Step away during a busy season to reflect on where you are now, what nourishes you and what you need to release so you can be what you are called to be.

In addition to a labyrinth walk, this program will include Loving Kindness meditation, a brief history of the labyrinth and suggestions for walking, individual reflection/journaling and time for sharing.  We will wrap up with a chef-prepared, warm lunch to celebrate the new season.

Weather-permitting, the labyrinth walk and individual reflection will take place outside.  Please dress appropriately for the weather.  If the weather is inclement, we will create a full-sized labyrinth indoors.
