One week until Yule/Winter Solstice 2016 happens!
Yule is a Pagan holyday ~ and many folx dont realize that the Christian traditions were, in truth, originally from Pagan roots. I will be sharing tidbits here through the next couple days re. Yule, winter solstice, etc.
Please know this: I have deep appreciation and respect when it comes to all walks of faith, traditions, and spiritualities. Ritual is a powerful way of holding space and many different forms of that are beautyfull. However, i dont support the patriarchial promotion of the Church nor do i support any religious fanaticism.
For example, this year ~ Hanukkah/Chanukah begins on Christmas Eve, december 24th and Kwanzaa begins the day after Christmas Day, the 25th. I feel it is a beautyfull way to learn about diversity by allowing ourselves to explore and inquire through different traditions and spiritualities.
I will be sharing more of my thoughts on this type of thing in the unfolding days ahead.
Much love, light, and blessings as we approach the Midwinter Solstice portals ~
