Winter Solstice Celebration of Light
Sunday,  December 19th
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
"There are two ways of spreading light: To be the candle or the mirror that reflects it." Edith Wharton

Midwinter's day has been an important time for celebration throughout the ages. On this shortest day of the year, the sun is at its lowest and weakest, a pivot point from which the light will grow stronger and brighter. This is the turning point of the year.

Join PranaShanti Owner, Devinder Kaur, and friends from different spiritual and devotional paths for a Winter Solstice Celebration to welcome the light!

•Buddhist - Kelsang Rabjor, Joyful Land Buddhist Centre
•Christian - Father Jack Lau, Galilee Retreat Centre
•Aboriginal - Cindy Gaudet, Metis woman, Global Heartbeat
•Yogic/Sikh - Devinder Kaur, Yoga Teacher

Experience the healing qualities of meditation, prayer, blessing and song from these sacred and spritual traditions. Be surrounded by joy, peace and upliftment in the soothing and restful glow of candlelight.

Warming spiced mulled apple juice and a special Winter Solstice dessert buffet with decadent chocolate fountain, fresh fruit and holiday treats served afterwards.

Cost: $22 per person. Proceeds donated to the Food Bank.  Children's Winter Solstice Celebration with Jmaie Reardon occurs at the same time with a special program for ages 3 to 8.  $11.00 per child.

Everyone welcome! Bring a meditation cushion/pillow and show up early! Chair seating available. Please call ahead to reserve a chair, if needed. Yoga mats not required.
