End of year celebration!

Winter Solstice has been celebrated in cultures the world over for thousands of years. This start of the solar year is a celebration of light and the rebirth of the sun. 

The Winter Solstice is the time of longest darkness and shortest light north of the Equator.  Yule is a time that honours love and new birth, as well as the collective unity of humanity.

In this evening event we welcome Heloise Pilkington back to Alternatives. Heloise is a singer-songwriter, sacred sound priestess and versatile performer who specialises in using her voice as a medium for expression, healing and connection.

Shaman healer Chris Waters  will join us to lead a magical invocation, ritual and ceremony.   Chris Waters has worked with groups for 20 years to teach shamanism in UK and Europe. Her work is full of simple beauty, grace and humour.  She is the founder of Spirit of the Inca.  There will be performance poetry from the Alternatives Team and we will end with celebratory African drumming!
