The Secret Lantern Society presents the 29th annual Winter Solstice Celebration! Celebrate the darkest night and the turning of the year with the Vancouver Morris Men on a sweet little lantern walk. Bring your lanterns to the front of the False Creek Community Centre and follow the big sun lantern to a mystery location! Performances and lantern workshops will take place in the Community Centre between 6pm and 10pm; visit their website for details.
Labyrinth of Light
The labyrinth has long been used for meditation, prayer and sites of ritual in various cultures around the world. Created with over 500 pure beeswax candles, the Winter Solstice Labyrinth in Performance Works invites you to warm yourself in a self-guided ceremony intended to help release old attachments and envision new possibilities as the darkest night of the year births a new season. Beautiful crystal bowl toning by Lori Bella.
