Under a slivered moon, we gather around the solstice fire to appreciate the elemental life forces that surge around us. Bend to earth hands touch the ground – Ahhhh. Reach to the air arms overhead– Ooooh. Face to the fire arms bent– Haaaa. Dive to the water hands together – Mmmmm. Our bodies strum a universal tune as we join the chorus of the ages. On this longest night we honor the light within us, among us and beyond us. We depart with intentions for kindness, understanding and peace. Even though is this the darkest hour, light is returning.
