UPCOMING michael meade events

Solstice means “sun stands still.” At the still point of midwinter the sun pauses amidst the relentless rush of time as days grow shorter and the earth wanders into the dark womb of night. Ancient people imagined that the sun needed some conscious help from humans in order to avoid being swallowed by the chaos, by the darkness and loss that ever nip at the edges of life.

In the midst of all the anxieties and pressures of modern life, it is a sense of timelessness that is most needed. There may be no better time to rekindle the instinct for uniting together and expressing love, care and inclusiveness. In facing the darkness together we can find again our own divine spark of life as each soul can connect through ritual and song to the living Soul of the World as it pivots again towards the light.

Join us for an evening of songs and poetry, rituals of remembrance and forgiveness, and a resounding collective call to bring the light of life back from the darkness.

“To be alive at this time means to be caught in the great unraveling that strands us near all the loose threads of creation; but it also means to be close to the revelation of the new design and the next paradigm. In facing up to the enormous problems of the world and accepting the troubles that knock on our doors, we can better learn what hidden resources, deep resolves, and surprising designs we have hidden within us.”

- Michael Meade, "Why the World Doesn't End"
