EarthDance Summer Solstice 2009

Our EarthDance community honoured and celebrated Litha, the Summer Solstice, together last December. We made a big circle, 60 or so of us, all ages. We sang, danced, drummed, set our intentions and feasted. Kylie invoked the faeries and they were everywhere!

And, to align with the energy of the season, Midsummer, the peak of
the sun, the time of maximum potential, equivalent to the energy of a full moon and ovulation - each family visited the central altar, set down a flower, and gave thanks for what they wanted to see come to 'full bloom' in their lives.

And, as it usually does each time we gather to mark the sabbats, it
rained. As they say - "good ceremony brings rain!"
