Connect to the Winter Solstice
First congratulations! You've made it through the cold short days of Winter so far and that my friends is not a small feat. Now we are starting to get to the home stretch of the holiday season. I would like to shed some light on the Winter Solstice a special day that can get lost in the bustle of the holidays. The Winter Solstice unlike the Summer Solstice is the darkest day of the year; shortest day, longest night. The good news is that after the 21st our days will be getting longer and nights shorter!! So why is the solstice significant? There are many reasons but the one that resonates to me is, it is the time of the year that we can honoring the shift from darkness into light. It is a time of the year we can honor both qualities. I've written in past blog posts about not necessarily deeming dark bad or light good. To begin you can reflect these questions;
What does darkness mean to you?
How can you benefit/honor darkness?
What does light mean to you?
How can you benefit/honor light?
