Midwinter's day has been an important time for celebration throughout the ages. On this shortest day of the year, the sun is at its lowest and weakest, a pivot point from which the light will grow stronger and brighter. This is the turning point of the year.
To celebrate this sacred time we will walk an incredible light-filled Labyrinth that is being created for us in the Spirit Room!
The labyrinth is a metaphor for what is sacred in our lives. When we walk the path inward, we carry our burdens with us. When we meditate or pray in the center, we ask for grace, forgiveness, and understanding. When we walk the path outward, we are lighter, more joyful and ready yet again to take on life's challenges.
Barbara Brown and Vanessa Compton will be creating our Labyrinth and live music by Canadian Singer Lea Longo and her band, will enhance our sacred experience as we are guided along our walk.
Warming refreshments will be served afterwards.
Cost: $20.00 per person. Children under 12 free of charge.
Proceeds will be donated to Cornerstone Housing for Women. Cornerstone provides emergency shelter and supportive housing for a diversity of women in Ottawa.
