Today is the winter solstice – it’s a seasonal transition that marks the shortest day of the year and tonight is the longest night of the year. There are many different kinds of rituals surrounding the winter solstice. Some believe it’s a good time to let go of the old and make way for the new. You can take a moment to mindfully reflect on past year and set new intentions for the new year.
With the rush of the holidays upon us, take a moment and acknowledge that winter is upon us. In celebration of the winter solstice have a look a this quote from Lewis Carrol.
I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.Lewis Carrol
