Overview

Celebrate The Solstice / Edition 1

Seasonal festivals are not cultural relics. They are joyous, fun, profound, life-affirming events that connect us deeply with the Earth, the heavens, and the wellspring of life within us. This engaging book tells the history and meaning of the Solstices, encourages the practice of rituals of seasonal renewal, and gives practical suggestions for how to celebrate them in contemporary times. Includes the ancient roots of Christmas-tide customs and cultural practices around the world.
