Celebrate the Summer Solstice in the Spirit of Iona on 19 June 2022
You are wholeheartedly invited to join Katherine Collis, special guests and our worldwide Findhorn family on our online journey of pilgrimage into the heart of Celtic spirituality, celebrating the Summer Solstice together.
The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, when the sun is at its northernmost point in the sky. The Summer Solstice is a time to celebrate the light of the Sun and the light within us. It is an energetically charged day, ideal for setting or refining intentions and the season that follows, up to the Autumn Equinox, is a time for nourishing the patience and gratitude that is needed to cultivate growth and trust.
In our Spirit of Iona: Summer Solstice session, we are called to a powerful grounding of the love we feel for the earth as we focus on the ancient and unique geology of the island, as well as the relationships people form with rock and stone when they set foot on the holy isle and walk across the pre-creature rock formations.
You are wholeheartedly invited to join our worldwide Findhorn family in this powerful online pilgrimage into the heart of Celtic Spirituality – discovering what the Earth and the Spirit of Iona have to teach us in these times.
Katherine Collis tells us about the Summer Solstice session of the Spirit of Iona series
We would love you to join us, as we celebrate this deeper meaning of the Summer Solstice
Facilitated by Katherine Collis and guests, we will begin our Summer Solstice celebration with a simple ritual and a time of reflection.
Katherine and her guests will create a sacred space for you to explore how your inner life aligns with the seasonal cycles and the sacred within the land where you live, wherever you are in the world.
We will write poetry together, practice journaling, create artwork and dream. We will build community, sharing insights and experiences with one another, and listen, as we deepen into peace, prayer and pilgrimage and, through that, further discover our purpose within the whole.
We will learn about and attune to the sacred Isle of Iona – her geography, historic writings, poetry, art, music, myths and legends, as well as the traditions of creating blessings and prayers.
