The Dark Rose Remembers
Winter Solstice – Friday 21st December
7.30pm – 9.30pm
42 Acres, 66 Leonard St, EC2A 4LW
Each year, the light waxes and it wanes. Right down deep in December, the night holds it’s height – it almost completely dissolves the day. The encompassing darkness envelops us. The Dark Rose blossoms fully.
In the nature-based traditions of this land, the light and dark was followed and celebrated – at it’s height in the Midsummer, and at it’s waning ebb at Winter Solstice – which is a day to enjoy the darkness at it’s longest tenure of the whole year.
This is a special day, because that dark is a place to rest, replenish, and develop. Just like the womb we all swam in before we emerged into this world. This darkness marks a highly receptive moment in the year, a space which proffers a very transparent access to the innermost reaches of our life – a space where powerful intentions can be planted.
Winter Solstice is the womb space in which we can plant anything we wish to create, grow, and nurture in the year to come. Whatever we embed here will grow, and expand, flourish – and become manifest in exponential ways as your life unfolds back into the light of the year – which begins to grow from Winter Solstice Night all the way to June.
Join Leila Sadeghee for an intentions and empowerment ritual with movement, sound, and deep meditative attunement to the dark spacious womb of the long night – where your deepest heart’s desire is remembered and patterned into everything that unfolds and blossoms from that point on.
It’s our final event of the year so we hope to welcome old and new SYC family…
