Winter Solstice Ceremony
On Saturday, Dec. 21 starting at 6 p.m., the Center for Spiritual Living will be celebrating the winter solstice. This ceremony will be led by Marsalee Forrester who has studied and been involved with shamanic traditions for 18 years. The ceremony will take place indoors and outdoors, rain or shine. It’s a very special ceremony involving making personal prayer bundles, letting go of what no longer serves as the highest good, and setting the intention to bring in what is desired and deserved.
It is requested that the participants not have any mind-altering substances, including alcohol, for 24 hours prior and 24 hours afterwards. (Does not include medications).
Things participants need to bring: a dish for potluck, a white candle (with a holder), a floating candle, an item from nature for the altar.
Dress in layers for extra warmth, if necessary.
Some items will be supplied for those who don’t bring what is needed.
A love donation will be collected.
All are invited to this special evening of ritual and celebration.
Center for Spiritual Living, 4845 Dunsmore Ave., La Crescenta
