Solstice Ceremony | Meditative Movement | Sound Healing | Community
THE LIGHT RETURNS
Give yourself the gift of a gorgeous, quiet night of nurturing the Light within.
During this time of the longest night when we naturally want to go in, but often end up being even more active because of the holidays, this is a chance to enjoy a tranquil, quiet evening to slow down and savor peaceful, inner space in loving community.
Plus, humans have celebrated solstices and equinoxes with dancing, feasting and community rituals for thousands of years. It’s in our blood!
GIFTS OF THE SEASON
Breathe fresh evergreens and be blessed with the ancient essences of frankincense and myrrh
With nourishing music and meditative movement (optional), journey into the dark and silence of yourself to connect with your inner light. Put this solar year to bed, light a candle with your own intention, create your own ritual or simply bless yourself with the gift of stillness. Simple facilitation will be offered in this sacred space to support you in observing the season in your own ways.

Co-hosted by the Women’s Full Moon Dance and the Warm Springs Alliance, this year’s event is a fundraiser for the Warm Springs community project.
The Women’s Full Moon dance is a group that’s been gathering for 16 years on the Saturday closest to the Full Moon to reconnect with body and spirit in sacred space. We also host special events open to the whole community sometimes (usually Solstices and Equinoxes).
The Warm Springs Alliance is a non-profit formed to protect the Warm Springs landmark site, preserve the Wasatch Plunge building at 840 N. Beck St., Salt Lake City, and reestablish its role as a community gathering place where people of all walks of life come together—to soak in the hot springs, learn, heal, connect, and collaborate.
Big gratitude to our sponsor, Ecstatic Dance Salt Lake!
