I am humbled and honored to invite you to join with people all over the world for a sacred intention to co-witness The Longest Night: Embracing Grief, Celebrating Light on Solstice, Tuesday December 21st, 3:40 pm – 6:30 EST.
I wish I could tell you how it is that I have come to be behind and beside this extraordinary sacred online event, but for now my best understanding is that I keep listening to my heart’s directive and showing up and continuing my devotion with a collective of people who–like me–believe in a different way of being in and of this world. We believe in creating media that is experiential and animating, uplifting and connective.
I am in awe. I am grateful, and I am truly and deeply in loving service.
There are many people around the world contributing gifts to this program, including prayers and ceremony from Woman Stands Shining Pat McCabe, Chief Dwaine Perry, Rev. Pippa Jones (One Spirit) and so many others. Loving details have gone into every moment, including music and poetry from Gary Malkin, Kristin Hoffman, Milagros Phillips and Libby Roderick.
With silence, stories, prayers, music, all in a circle of deep listening, we invite you to join us as we gather and form the deeper bonds of love, friendship and community to strengthen us and enlighten us for the times to come.
Bring a candle, and a small bowl/vessel of water to participate in sacred ceremony in our Zoom Room:

The program begins with the Solstice commemoration of the Global Silent Minute, from 3:40pm EST. Sunset in New York is at 4:32pm that day, as we enter “The Longest Night” inviting all of us to reflect upon our stories as we re-conceive and regenerate our future through recalibrating humanity’s custodianship for our beautiful, blue planet.
All wisdom traditions affirm the importance of giving presence to our loss and grief, both personal and collective. Indigenous traditions and all the world’s religions have various ceremonies to allow grief to be expressed and offer some form of release.
It is important for us to come together as a global community to share this moment of reflection, of sorrow and loss, that we may hold and support each other in our shared grief to acknowledge what is passing as we sense what is emerging – the seeds of the “new” seeking expression.
