So we circle around the sun once more and Winter Solstice is approaching. The winter solstice is a time to celebrate the return of the sun, give birth to our visions and name our dreams, our “solstice resolutions”, which will grow with the increasing light. The way is now open for the rebirth of our active selves and coming out of hibernation. This is also a dual celebration and we pause to look back on our journey since the summer solstice, acknowledging what we have completed and the insights and understandings we have gained from inner reflection.
