Winter Solstice Meditation
Welcome to a Winter Solstice Meditation.
This moment is yours.
Create space for reflection, for healing, for gratitude, for letting go on this, the longest night of the year.
This audio is a simple writing meditation you can practice to honor the darkness of the Winter Solstice and welcome the coming light.
Begin this practice at dusk just before the sun slips out of the sky. Then repeat it again each evening for three nights. I recommend you have a candle, a pen, and some paper or your favorite journal. But if getting these items is going to derail your momentum in taking advantage of this moment, then skip it all and just begin. You are here now. All you really need is an open heart.
Included is a reading of the poem “Winter’s Cloak” by Sister Joyce Rupp, from the book, The Circle of Life. Accessed on Spirituality and Practice website at http://www.spiritualityandpractice.com/practices/naming-the-days/view/20546/winter-solstice .
