The longest day of the year is arriving soon – and we are celebrating the 2017 Summer Solstice. All are welcome – all ages and stages – solo or in groups.
From 7:00 pm to 7:45 pm A complimentary dinner will be served and at the same time we will have a collaborative painting canvas available for people to decorate.
From 7:45 to 8:15 pm the Sky Lanterns will be distributed in the Lowville School House for people to write on what they are grateful for and what they wish to let go of. An alternative option – is a Floating Lantern for those who have experienced the loss of a loved family member, friend, or pet. There are a limited number of floating lanterns available and we will be creating a silent space to honour the moment.
From 8:15 to 8:45 pm – a Light Session (hosted by Kune Hua and Brock Hewitt) will be held through ambient music to create the space for a mindful conversation/meditation to come together in community. Guests are welcome to bring blankets to sit on the grass.
From 9:00 to 9:30 pm – releasing the Sky and Floating Lanterns.
Please RSVP and choose only one type of lantern (Sky or Water) – unfortunately it will be impossible to be in both places at the same time to release both a Sky and Water lantern.
As at our previous Solstice events we ask for a donation of personal effects for people experiencing homelessness (deodorant, tampons/feminine napkins, winter socks,underwear, toothbrushes) or a monetary donation for us to purchase items in bulk.
We look forward to sharing the shortest night of the year together.
