About the event
In nature, darkness is essential. Trees and plants need time to recharge their cycles. Animals and reptiles and amphibians go underground for much-needed rest and replenishment.
As humans have for thousands of years, together we will honor the Winter Solstice — that time in the Northern Hemisphere when the hours of light are at their minimum. We will explore together how the darkness informs our physical and spiritual being, and how it helps us to see and appreciate the Light that is available in its midst.
We will walk slowly and explore what the natural world can teach us about the essential nature of darkness and how to find resilience and light in its midst. We’ll be meeting at Fletcher’s Cove Boathouse in Washington, D.C.
