Come and join Simona and Tim for 108 Sun Salutations, restorative Yoga and Chanting to celebrate Summer Solstice also known as Midsummer. Summer Solstice represents the longest period of daylight (longest day and shortest night) except in the polar regions where daylight is continuous from a few days to 6 months around the summer solstice. The Summer Solstice is a time to celebrate the light of consciousness within ourselves and within each and every person.
The Druids, ancient Egyptians, Maya, Romans, and many others have aligned their sacred sites to the summer solstice and conducted ceremonies on this day. At the Great Pyramids of Egypt the summer solstice sun crowns the head of the Sphinx; the Druids celebrated the marriage of heaven and earth and the defeat of the dark god of the year just as the Egyptians celebrated the defeat of the dark god Seth by Horus as the sun; and in Rome, the festival of Vestalia continued a Druid tradition of guarding the sacred fire.
To honour this turning point of the year Simona will lead you through 108 Sun Salutations while listening to the beautiful chanting of Tim Chalice.
Date:- Wednesday 21st June.
Time:- 7.00 -9.30pm
