    Winter Solstice Day event Gong, labyrinth and drums

    14.30-16.30

    Come and join Scania and Heike 2pm-4:30pm on the day of the Winter Solstice Friday 20th December at Gaunts House in the theatre for an afternoon of Gongs, Drums,Labyrinth walking and fire ceremony.

    The WINTER SOLSTICE has been celebrated in cultures the world over for thousands of years. Traditionally, the solstice is about clarifying and setting intentions for the coming 365 days cycle. This start of the solar year is a celebration of light and the rebirth of the sun — when we learn to appreciate the longest, darkest nights and look ahead toward the lengthening days. For from out of the darkness and cold, the light and hope returns.

    As you prepare for this shift, you will discover that there is an immense need for slowing down, for silence and resting. We encourage you to take this time to listen to those things that speak without words. Whether this is your first experience walking a labyrinth or your hundredth, you’ll notice that some things will change and some may stay the same. Its’ all about working with Nature, not against her, and learning to celebrate the seasonal transition.

    Scania and Heike welcome you into the space to warm teas, allowing yourself to arrive

    We begin with a drumming Session with Heike.

    We then go into a Gong Session with Scania allowing our bodies and minds to relax and just be.

    As we awaken, noticing the changes in us and step into the next part of the afternoon crossing over the lawn to breathe the calm peace of the labyrinth.

    Walk at your own pace and enjoy quiet meditation.

    Let a walk through the labyrinth be an opportunity, within the specific energy of the changing season, to take this pause and reflect.

    We finish with the opportunity to use the ritual of fire to release our intentions into the longer days that approach. A cauldron will be lit and paper offered if you wish to release your intention into the fire.
