~~~ Walking the Wheel Series ~~~
This workshop series explores each pagan holiday as they occur.
You will learn about its history, varied traditions, and ways you can celebrate it in your own life.
Celebrating the Winter Solstice
The Winter Solstice, or Yule, marks the turning of the Wheel, when winter truly begins and we are faced with weeks of cold, harsh weather and bleak moods. But even during this traditionally dark time of the year, there is warmth to be found if you know where to look. In this workshop, we will explore the mysteries behind this sacred time and learn some of the ways our ancestors brought forth warmth and light in the dead of winter.
Called the "Celtic New Year", Samhain (Sow-en), is steeped in mystery and folklore. What began as a solemn time to honor ancestors and to prepare for the coming winter, it has now been popularized into a costume and candy free-for-all. Yet even in the midst of trick-or-treating, apple-bobbing, and sugar comas, we can still see remnants of the original meaning behind this holiday. This workshop will talk about the origin of many of our common Halloween traditions as well as new, old, and revived ways to celebrate this sacred holiday.
