Forest Temple: Summer Solstice
At Summer Solstice light suffuses the lands as the sun reaches the height of its strength. Yet at the crowning point of light the seed of darkness is born, and from now on the nights will grow longer. The sun has touched the northernmost point along the horizon and is about to journey back south.

About the Program
Our seasonal celebrations weave together nature-connection practices; reflection, contemplation, prayer; ritual & play; eco-craft-making; music, song & dance; land tending & stewardship; and ancestral animism. The nature of how we gather is ever-evolving and follows the changing tides of the seasons. So we learn to pay attention to the way that Earth speaks to us, sings to us, whispers to us. We are guided by Earth wisdom as we deepen our relationship to Her, so everything we do is centered around cultivating this bond.
A NOTE ON WEATHER & WHAT TO BRING
Bring your songs and your voice, your percussion instruments and sound-makers! We come together regardless of the weather unless it is unsafe to do so. We ask that you dress for the weather, bring your own blanket or folding chair, walking stick and water.
A NOTE ON COVID-19
Out of respect for one another, we ask that all attendees come prepared to honor social distancing guidelines with masks as optional.
All are welcome and respected at Forest Temple gatherings. We strive to be diverse, intergenerational and accessible people of all walks of life. Please contact us when you'll be attending with children or when accessibility is a concern so that we can be as accommodating as possible.
