At the Winter Solstice we reach the depth of darkness with the longest night of the year and celebrate the returning of the light invoking its return. In the Cunning Folks calendar this time was called the Return.
Time has proven that the light will return but our ancestors did not know this, they wondered if the light would keep its promises and this fear rises up within us now as we prepare to leave one calendar year behind and embrace the new.
In calling back the light we also call back our own optimism and hope for an ever brighter future - opening ourselves to receive gifts from the magical shaman - the Father of Christmas - and celebrate the birth of the child of Light and promise. This then is a wondrous time, a time of magic and awe, a time in which the inner child is given space to rise up and relive again the wonders of its own childhood memories of Christmas.
In this special lecture we will explore the magic of this time and recall the light, we will take an inner world journey to meet the Father of Christmas and receive from him a gift and omen of the year that lies before us and join together in the celebration of the birth of the child of promise and hope both inside ourselves and within the world.
The lecture will include live trance channellings, simple shared rituals and meditation.
