Circle Practice to Mark the Winter Solstice
December 21, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm ESTFree
Venue change: this event will no longer be meeting in person and is moving to Zoom, and the start time has been changed from 6 to 7:00 PM accordingly.
Honoring this day of the Winter Solstice, Strong Oak Lefebvre will guide the group through the basic tenets of Circle Practice. The class will focus on learning by doing. Under Strong Oak’s gentle and skillful leadership, class participants will learn about the meaning of Circle Practice, the importance of the ritual, and the deep sharing that often emerges. All this will be evident as the group engages in a Circle with Strong Oak guiding and supporting each individual and the group as a whole. Come for the community dinner meal at The Hub, and stay for this open and meaningful sharing on the Winter Solstice in this moving Circle Practice Workshop. All welcome.
