10:30 pm With lanterns, we all start our way, beginning at the Headwaters of the San Diego River and then, walk towards the labyrinth for a Lantern walk ritual. Winter solstice marks the start and turning of a new year, celebrating the turning from the darkest moment of the year to increasing light.
A new year brings mystery and promise. Bring intentions to weave in through another solar cycle. It is said that the veils between worlds is exceedingly thin near water openings and at the winter solstice. At the Headwaters of the San Diego River we will call our beloved ancient ancestors to assist us in balancing our world with love and healing. Jennifer Robinson will offer messages from Spirit to a handful of guests..
Winter Solstice is time to turn into the deep, the dark and the cold. Together we gently uncover our dark side, embracing it with awareness and self-observation, understanding our feelings, thoughts and emotions and how they contribute to our life.
This time of year, in the northern hemisphere the Earth is dormant: quiet and peaceful, making it the most grounding season of all. With our labyrinth lantern walk, we walk the labyrinth with bare feet and with no rush. Allow Mother Earth, in her stillness to swallow up and recycle any discordant energy and dissipate and recycle this energy, gifting us the serenity and calmness to move through our lives in peace, joy, appreciation, compassion and love.
We will walk the labyrinth. The labyrinth means house of the labrys, or double axe. This ceremonial tool, long believed by modern archaeologists to be a sacrificial weapon, was in reality a powerful symbol that wasn’t ever used as an axe. The labrys is a stylized butterfly, the symbol of transformation and regeneration. The labyrinth is a powerful and appropriate symbol for a ritual death to rebirth.
Individual’s facing the labyrinth will face his or her deepest fears, those things that keep us from advancing on our life paths. This initiation can involve a losing of self, a symbolic death followed by spiritual rebirth walking the labyrinth. Guests move through the largest labyrinth in California, away from the outer world and toward the inner world of self-knowledge and truth, toward the center of the labyrinth.
Symbolically, on a deeper level, the labyrinth symbolizes the initiatory journey each person must make toward the center of their being and back again, fighting your own fears and misconceptions in order to release the ego and connecting with and breathe only Oneness.
