WINTER SOLSTICE EVENTS
Saturday, December 14
HISTORY OF THE HOPI
10:00-11:30 | Teepee
Winter is a time for storytelling. Gather round and listen to the story of the ancient Hopi solstice ritual, the Soyal Ceremony. Beginning on the shortest day of the year, this ceremony symbolizes the second phase of Creation at the Dawn of Life. Its prayers and rituals implement a plan for the coming year, turning the sun back toward its summer path. The Hopi rituals will be contrasted with the solstice rituals of the Pueblo Indians of New Mexico and the ceremonial role of Katsinams or Kachinas.
1:00-2:00 | Medicine Circle
Winter solstice Mandala coloring invites you to reflect on your whole self and go inward to release negative energy. This simple act of acknowledgement is profound, opening the doors of communication between the conscious and unconcsious mind. Honor the earth’s seasonal rhythms and celebrate through your own festive colors.
