Winter Solstice Celebration on the Labyrinth
December 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Winter Solstice will be celebrated on the beautiful indoor labyrinth at First United Methodist Church on Wednesday, 12/18, at 6:30 pm. The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day (and the longest night) of the year. Come embrace the return of the light with this deeply spiritual, candlelight celebration of the solar new year.
Rev. Barbara Middleton and Dr. Celene Lillie will open the event. Sound artists Joy Sylvia and Michael Cutter of Heartsong Way will provide mystical sounds including didgeridoos, handpan, drums, and vocal toning while you walk the labyrinth.
The labyrinth and sound are both ancient tools for journeying within to connect, release and renew. The soundscapes will encourage you to relax and bathe in the healing space before and after your walk. The instruments played will provide a rich tonal spectrum to invoke ‘deep listening’ – a sense of becoming fully present and listening with the whole body.
This event is FREE and open to the public (no young children please). Love donations are encouraged for our musicians.
Absolutely EVERYONE is welcome! Since 1997, First United Methodist Church of Boulder has been a Reconciling Congregation, fully welcoming of LGBTQ people and their loved ones.
