At this time we clear a space, creating a "spiritual cradle" for the return of the light.
In the beginning was the Tao
Which gave rise to yin and yang,
Sunlight and Shadow,
And the energy
Of all existence.
Yet beneath the dance of life,
The Tao is always one,
Mother of ten thousand things,
Source of all creation.
"This is Midwinter, the shortest day and longest night of the year. The restraints of winter have brought us rest and given us time for reflection and the incubation of ideas and dreams. Here in the stillness of the solstice we pause and become aware of our visions and the seeds of our future growth waiting for birth."
"Let the beauty we love be what we do."
