Wednesday, December 21,  7pm – 9pm. Winter Solstice Labyrinth Walk at Community Congreational Church, Tiburon, CA

Music played by Harpist Diana Stork beside the beautiful indoor labyrinth of sweet-smelling evergreen boughs. Lit by hundreds of white candles. 

Celebrate the Winter Solstice with a time to give yourself to the deep, rich darkness and to enjoy the quiet interval that comes when the curtain has gone down over the stage of this year’s rich drama, and the new play has not yet commenced.
It’s a time to go within to a deeper level of awareness—a quiet time of reflection and inner light from which we emerge rejuvenated from the deep rest within. It’s a time of rebirth and renewal, of Being and Becoming whole. Take time away from the frenetic stress of Christmas preparations. Wrap yourself in the velvet mothering darkness of midwinter. Rest, and be renewed!

Holiday treats and warm drinks served.  Public invited. FREE.                                   CCC Church, Tiburon: 145 Rock hill Drive, Tiburon, CA 94920                         415-435-9108; www.ccctiburon.org
