About The Event
A Winter Solstice service will be celebrated on the beautiful indoor labyrinth at First United Methodist Church on Wednesday, 12/19, at 6:30 pm. The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day 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 Heartsong 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.
The church’s parking lot is currently under construction. A small number of handicapped parking spaces are available in the circle drive outside the church’s main entrance.
