For centuries, the Winter Solstice has been celebrated by civilisations across the globe. The change of the seasons is significant for a number of reasons, both literal and metaphorical. During this period, the sun is “born again,” awakening us to the fact that nature is ever-shifting; reminding us that to evolve and flourish, we must move with nature and dance to the deity’s divine rhythm.
The celebration of the Solstice serves to reconnect people with planet through a process of ritual, reflection and renewal. As the sun returns, a divine source of creation and life, we give thanks to the universe for its transformation and revival. Just as our physical senses must adapt to the elements that be, so must our focus and understanding change as we begin to perceive the world in a new light once more.
Join us as we celebrate this process of reawakening at the Phoenix Festival of Fire 2016. We are giving away a set of double tickets to the event. Keep reading to find out more.
